Last night we met Rambo for the first time. He is still not feeling too well, but mom sez he will be feeling better soon.
Rambo (a 6 month old Boxer cross) was hit by a car and was lying in the middle of the road, so mom and dad stopped to move him out of the way. This was when mom saw he was still alive, so she picked the injured doggie up and they rushed him to the nearest doggie hospital. Unfortunately his front leggie was just too damaged and this had to be amputated. These pictures are of us all investigating and meeting Rambo for the first time.
Boogie sez she thinks Rambo is similar to what her dad looked like... Boogie seems to like Rambo.
Sharkie is not too sure where Rambo's other leg is, but Im sure she will figure it out soon.
We promise to look after Rambo as best as we can.
Mom sez we are just looking after Rambo untill he is stronger, and untill we can find him a good home.
UPDATE ON RAMBO's PROGRESS: 18 July 2007
On Sunday 15 July we had to rush Rambo back to the vet, because his wound opened up a little, but a lot of yukkie stuff was coming out. He has been there ever since. He is on strong antibiotics and they have put a drain in for better drainage of the dead tissue. He is doing well and the Vet contacts us every day keeping us updated on his progress.
He is a strong boy and we hope to have him out of the doggie hospital soon.
UPDATE ON RAMBO's PROGRESS: 28 July 2007
Rambo is still in the hospital and the vet is still not too comfortable releasing him. There is nothing we can do but wait in anticipation. Please pray for Rambo to get better soon.
