Emily news :)...

Camryn here:
This morning a guy down the road from Chris went out to his truck after not using it cause of the holidays.  He heard a "bark", looked under and saw Emily.  Emily growled at him, so thankfully he'd seen the easel with her poster in Chris front yard and ran down to his house.  It was early, Chris was still in bed so Adam went to the guys house instead of waking Chris up just in case it wasn't Emily.  Soon as Emily saw Adam she crawled out and rolled over for her belly rub.
Adam called Chris, he and Samantha ran right down, loaded her up and got her to the Doggie ER.  Thankfully we gots two of those within 10 minutes of here.  They got her stable, warmed her then accessed the damage.  Her had indeed been hit by a car, her right rear leg is being amputated probably as I report this.  She's been out in the cold since Fri night, no food no water, no warmth, so she's run down as well.  BUT, when they let Chris and Samantha in to see her, Emily's tail was working for all it was worth. 
Dogs unlike horses do just fine on three legs, Chris said she walked down to the surgical area just fine using just three legs.  She'll be our little tripod doggie :)
Mom loves this pic of Emily on one of Chris departments FireTrucks! 
Chris does have medical insurance on Emily but, it doesn't pay till after it's billed.  So Mom n Dad are heading over to the Vets to pay the up front costs in just a bit.  We feel so very blessed that our Emily girl is found and don't mind that part of her will be missing.  I mean we love Emily not cause her has had four legs, but, cause of her big heart!
Oh, Mom is gonna take the portrait of Emily to the ER to give Chris now, since it won't break his heart to see it, and give him Emily's still wrapped Christmas present too.


  1. Yay! I am so glad Emily is found! And safe! Being a pit, she is strong and will recover well, I am sure! I am so so so happy she will be back home where she belongs!
    Check out Nellie
    happy as can be with 3 legs!

    1. Awesome, Mom just told Chris all about it! Thanx for sharing it.

  2. hurrah well done Emily that was a scary adventure for her

  3. She'll do fine. When I was young, the dog next door had three legs and did absolutely fine. I'm so happy for you and your family!

  4. Yes, when I was a Vet Assist. we had several tripod patients. Unlike us and horses dogs adjust very well. I'm over the moon that she's been found.

  5. I'm so glad she's safe and almost-sound! What a Christmas miracle!

  6. What a wonderful Christmas present, so pleased Emily has been found, she'll be bounding around soon xxx

  7. Oh, I am so glad to hear. Give lots of hugs and Kisses for all us bloggers!!! xoxoxo

  8. I'm so glad Emily is found. I read about a similar miracle this morning that occurred here in Alaska:

  9. That must be such a relief! I'm glad to read she was found!

  10. THANK YOU EVERYONE. Mom will be sure to convey all well wishes to Emily soon. Right now we're awaiting word on how her surgery went.
