This is Sassy Marie when we took her into rescue. She had a serious head tilt and the shelter said her owners turned her in for lack of money to care for her. It is happening a lot.

Sassy has to remain pretty quiet at Jeanne's and she has her own big playpen. Jeanne takes her outside and lets her walk around, and Sassy even tried to play with a toy. She has seen several vets and even a surgeon. She does have a neck injury. This is another reason I encourage people to use harnesses. We don't want to pull on a small dog's neck-- it can cause serious injury, and I suspect this may be what happened to Sassy Marie.

Sassy went to the specialist on Tuesday and she got all dressed up.

She gave us side poses, and showed us the dress she had ready for the vet visit.

George was checking her out. George is Jeanne's older boy, but he still is in charge. Sassy will stay on her meds for another three weeks and then we'll see how she is doing. She may need neck/cervical surgery to insure her spine is stable. She is so sweet, we are doing all we can for her.

Oh Linda, she looks such a lovely girl and I do hope the Vet can sort her out!

Aw, poor girl ~ My heart goes out to Sassy ~ hope the meds work to reduce the swelling and hopefully she won't need surgery. She is in good hands!
