Have you heard of these people?

No, that's not one I've heard of.  Thank you for that, Prickle.  I'll definitely pass it along to Jennifer in case events require such a service.

I'm not sure what the board policy is as far as providing information to those who feel the desire to donate.  Rather than step over a line I'll wait for a Mod to provide a course of action on that.

Anyone willing to donate can PM or email Oaksworn (you can do that do that from any message he's written). Unfortunately, putting a "donate" link in a message is likely to end up with people donating years after the fact because they see the message and don't notice the date.  If the Rescue group takes over, there's no problem with posting a donate link to them as money donated to them in far future will still be useful for the intended purpose.

Yep, that'll work.  I check that email at least once a day, typically in the evenings.  I also have the PM notify active to send to the same email address so I won't miss anything.  I'd be directing the donations to the vet's office so no one need feel funny about where their gift is going. 

A little update based on my visit to drop off today's donations:  The specialist has seen the x-ray and even examined Chancey (Jennifer modified her name since they already have a Chance there.) in person.  She has some torn ligaments in her pelvis and the bones there have been shifted around.  The specialist doesn't seem to be to worried about that though.  He's more concerned with her leg.  Chancey isn't responding to moderate painful stimulus to her toes of one leg.  He tried a bit harder and she seemed to take a bit of notice but not enough for him to feel ok about it.  She may lose the leg depending on how events develop from here.  Jennifer has a quote from the specialist and he's offered a discount but it's still substantial.  Jennifer is forwarding it to the Suncoast Basset Hound Rescue so their board can meet and discuss it.  With her injuries, even if everything goes flawlessly, Chancey will probably be boarded at the vet's for awhile before Jennifer can take her home to foster. 

So, that's where we are currently.  A few folks have promised donations Monday, so I'll probably be going back by the vet's after work on Monday.  I'll post more updates as I have them.

Again, thanks to all of you for caring.   Smiley

Sorry I can't donate, but I will pray for her healing.

Thank you, Tana.  Sorry, I haven't been able to provide an update, folks.  Jennifer wasn't in when I dropped off Monday's donations and I just haven't had the space/spoons the last couple of days to follow up with her.  I'll see if I can find something out today or tomorrow.

Ok, folks, I've spoken with Jennifer and Chancey is doing better.  She started standing on her own this past Sunday.  She seems to have some feeling back in the leg that was swollen and not responding well earlier.  Chancey still can't walk all that well as the leg isn't supporting much weight but this is a heck of an improvement over what we had initially been told.  Jennifer is still waiting to hear back from Suncoast Basset Rescue.  They had requested a second opinion on Chancey's condition so Jennifer took Chancey on a drive to do so.  During the drive Chancey kept standing up - in a moving car.  So, this is definitely positive progress.  The doc offering the second opinion had a better prognosis.  No surgery but definietly cage rest for six to eight weeks and then a follow-up evaluation.  That evaluatuion will determine how Chancey's leg is treated.  As far as the bones shifted around in her pelvis, he didn't seem to concerned.

At the moment Chancey has received all her shots and is no longer in isolation.  She didn't have heartworm but was treated for hook worm.  She's receiving anti-inflammatories, anti-biotics (some of her scabs have been licked off), joint supplements and pain meds.  She did have a patch for the pain meds but Chancey evidently didn't like that as she removed the patch.  So, she's receiving them orally now.

Other than that, donations are still coming in from abroad including family members and the Florida Basset Rescue.

At this point, we're looking at cage rest and the continuation of Chancey's medications.  When she's moving around better perhaps short walks outside as she's not thrilled with the cage idea.

Thank you all for your kindness, prayers, well wishes and positive vibes.  I'm not sure Chancey would be showing such improvement with out it.  I'll keep you updated as I can.

Thanks.
This sounds good. It is her starting to fight to get better, that makes a big part of the improvment.
She feels the love and that not all humans are nasties. Smiley

I'll keep you updated as I can.

Hey, Folks,
I managed to swing by the vets last night and drop off a few donations.  I got to see Chancie (spelling corrected to match that on her kennel) and I have to say she's looking better.  She's up and moving around though a bit awkwardly.  She has some hip dysplasia which basically means that her hips are now at a bit of an angle to the rest of her body.  It makes walking interesting, kind of a foreward/sideways step.  I'm sure that's impacted by her leg as well.  The surgery to correct the hips is significant and has a six month healing time per side so it's not on the table at the moment.  The bones out of place in her pelvis don't appear to be of major concern outside of breeding and since that's not a concern the doc isn't to worried there.  Being that she's not all that thrilled with the enforced convalesence and the fact that Chancie's a basset hound her vocalizations sounded a bit mournful to me... but, she's conscious, moving around and obviously eating.  She's off the antibiotics now which Jennifer is grateful for, Chancie put up a bit of a fuss taking them.

There's no news re: the Suncoast Basset Rescue.  They haven't followed up with Jennifer since asking for the second opinion and Jennifer's been a bit busy with her own life events.  Jennifer did receive an odd call from the FedEx guy who delivers to our building.  Apparently he may be interested in adopting Chancie if the help from Suncoast falls through.  It's a surprise to me, he never said anything to me about it at all and from what Jennifer says he knows the story.  Jennifer's going to contact Suncoast again and see what they have to say before working out anything further with the Mr. FedEx.  Anyone who adpots her will have to understand that Chancie is a special needs pup.

That's about all the news there is... oh! there was one question I had been meaning to ask which I finally remembered last night.  Chancie is estimated to be between three and five years of age so Jennifer has split the difference and is saying four Smiley

Thanks, again, everyone.

Let's hope that Mr. FedEx is serious and is up to caring for a special needs dog.  We're pulling for her!
