Default Angel and Riley pics

I thought I would update with some new pictures of Angel, and a few of Riley boy.

I also thought I would give an update on Angel's situation. On September 11th she went in for two routine vaccines, distemper/parvo, and Corona. Two days after receiving her shots, she started to have difficulty standing up from a sit, and would 'bunny hop' when she tried to run.

She progressed more each day, and eventually lost the ability to walk or control her hind legs at all.

After blood tests, x-rays, and multiple vet visits, a local neurologist diagnosed her with polyneuropathy, caused from her vaccinations. Basically, for whatever reason the vaccines were too much for her system and caused inflammation around her nerves(best way I can describe it). So she is temporarily paralyzed from the waist down.

Long story short, she still can't walk on her own, but the prognosis is 'excellent' that she will walk again and make a full recovery. Apparently, the full recovery will take 6-8 weeks. Once the inflammation goes down, she should start to feel her legs and will start walking.

I still can't believe this happened to her. I feel incredibly guilty for taking her in that day for those two shots. Thankfully, she still seems to be her happy self(pictures will show that). If you all wouldn't mind, keep little Angel in your thoughts and prayers. I am confident she will get better, but there is a chance she will not.

Here is little Angel. Pictures were taken this morning.

begging for a treat



windblown....



and two side shots taken a few weeks ago.

I just measured him and he is 26" at the shoulder(just over slightly). I can't see him getting much taller, but he continues to surprise me with that!

What a sweet girl...I'm sure she'll pull through strong. Riley's handsome as always.

Thank you everyone

Milo, I am confident she will as well. I just miss seeing her run around, and being a puppy!
