Aw, shucks. We were worried when Jibboom first showed off her Mae West swagger. She walks with a the telltale Chick-a-BOOM-Chick-a-BOOM wriggle that looks flippin' cute, but you know it just ain't right.
Thank goodness for pit bull beef, though! Her muscles are doing quite an impressive job holding all the pieces together, so Boom can keep on throwing herself into the play sessions she loves so much as long as she feels up to it. Our job will be to keep her well lubed and monitor her weight while we look for her just-as-special-as-she-is home.
I about melted from the faces she gave me on the way home from the vet. In case you didn't know, Boom-Boom is a bit of a Drama Queen and very quick to point out when something's not quite right in her world. The vet exam hurt and she whined and complained the whole way home, "Don't do that to me again!"
Okay, little girl. Let's go home and have us a little cuddle to forget about all that.
I just love me some Boom-Boom.
Our girl, Ruka, has had dysplasia and arthritis since I adopted her at 2 years of age - she wasn't expected to live much past 7 but at 13, she's proved them all wrong. It's amazing what some of the new medications and some minor modifications around our home have done to maintain her quality of life. Boom-Boom will find that special family that will fall in love with her and do what it takes to keep her happy and healthy! Thanks again for all you do, Bad Rap!ReplyDelete
Poor Jibboom. At least these days they have more help for dogs with hip dysplasia. The little drama queen (how cute)is in good hands at Bad Rap and I am sure there is someone out there to help give this little sweetie a good home with her special needs. Just thankful she has the people at Bad Rap to take care of her until she gets a permanent, loving home.ReplyDelete
such a sweet baby girl. Love, love her face. I hope she gets the most special home ever:)ReplyDelete
Hope you feel better soon Jibboom.ReplyDelete
Okay that last picture of her in the car is just adorable. That face!!! I can see why you would melt. I'm melting...and not from the heat here in Texas. :)ReplyDelete
MY SWEET WILMA (BULL DOG) HAS HAD SOME PRETTY BAD MOMENTS BUT AFTER DOC SAID WE SHOULD PUT HER DOWN I REMEMBER ANOTHER SWEET DOGGIE THAT HAD THE SAME PROBLEM THAT WAS WITH US FOR 15 YEARS. WILMA IS NOW OVER 11 AND WE HAVE VERY FEW PROBLEMS AND WE JUST TREAT HER AS A PRINCESS SHE IS AND WE GET ALONG JUST FINE. I SO WISH I COULD TAKE THIS BABY.ReplyDelete
