Today Mommy went to see if there was any news on our dear sweet Joanie, that so many in the DWB community and the world have been praying will survive the horrible condition she was found in. There was an update done today so Mommy wants to share it and the new pictures with all of you.
The Vet says Joanie is a standard and, we think, black/tan dachshund. The book says she should weight 18 pounds plus. The picture below is of one of DROH's available for adoptions males....his name is EDDY. This is the way, we hope and pray, she will look someday.
July 8, 2009 - This update comes from Joanie's foster mom. "Joanie has been on pancreatic enzymes for a little over a week now. She's been very interested in eating, along with getting up and around more. She has varied her menu and is dining on two different brands of kibble, Wellness still seeming to be her favorite. The dry food is down all the time for her, and 3 times a day she also gets her serving of wet food with the enzymes mixed in. She recently took possession of a huge dog bed – it actually belongs to one of my Lab rescues, but she found it one day and has made it her own. The center pillow has been replaced by one of her favorite comforters though, because she was having a tough time burying herself under that big pillow! It stays under the desk in the office, right next to the computer station and she can peek out and check on me periodically. She had lost a little weight, but is back up to 8.5 pounds. Her first rib, closest to her chest, is almost gone from sight! We continue the Winstrol only once a day now and just this week when I had the Vet call in a refill for her, the young lady at Veterinary Pharmacies of America said that the owner had read her story and was so touched by what we were doing for her that he instructed them to refill Joanie's prescription at no charge!"
