x-ray vision

This is Ruthie's xrays from earlier this week. Before we had the x-rays done we had thought she was hit by a car, or something like that. But no- see the bright pieces. Those are bullet fragments. Nice Eh?

We are taking Ruthie to a specialist in Calgary to have her leg amputated from the elbow down. Despite the appearance of a damaged shoulder it is not too bad at all so once the leg is gone Ruthie will be more comfortable. She is not in any pain anymore- but the leg is a hinderance- it gets in her way and she sometimes trips over it.

Ruthie has made an amazing turn around in the last month or so- she is outgoing, playful and likes people. It amazes me that dogs are so forgiving.
