now THIS is stinking cute!

Sheba is an awesome little girl. She is very affectionate, gets along with other animals, and is quiet. Sheba has NO health issues. She is a purebred Papillon, and she is ten years old.  She uses puppy pads to wee wee like a good girl!  You can see her photos on Facebook.

Queen of Sheba!

I’ve had Sheba for a few days, and she is a wonderful little dog, weighing in at only 5 pounds!  She is at Newman Veterinary Center right now, and her evaluation showed serious dental and ear issues.  Those will be addressed while she is being spayed today.  When they are finished with this little baby, she will have a new smile and be totally vetted!

easy to please!

I think Sheba will be a bit more spunky after she recovers from her ordeal today at the vet.  Her teeth must have been very painful.

05/08/13 Update:  This poor little thing had seven teeth removed.  She has had all of her shots, been spayed, and micro-chipped.  She is on antibiotics, and doing very well.  I can’t imagine how it would feel to be housing seven infected teeth… ouch!  Sheba also had a severe ear infection that has been treated.  After Sheba recovers, we will see a new spunk in her walk and new joy in her heart!  She is a precious little thing!

05/09/13 Update:  Yesterday was scary.  Sheba was shutting down.  She wouldn’t drink or eat, and she’d lay in the back of her crate, unresponsive.  I know she was in pain, but at only five pounds, I was scared for her.  I called my friend Ernestine.  I was afraid of dehydration, but Ernie was afraid of dropping blood sugar.  She gave me a great tip!  She suggested I find some Karo Syrup, but I didn’t have any so she suggested pancake syrup… just put a little on your finger, and let her lick it to get her blood sugar up.  I did, and it worked.

“Come on little girl, eat for Sarah!”

I offered her everything I had, chicken stew, canned dog food, peas, you name it!  I put a small piece of cooked steak in the blender, added water and Sarah went into Sheba’s crate, and used a syringe to force feed her.  Sarah alternated between food and water, until Sheba was up and much more lively.  Then, Sarah chopped up some tiny steak bites, and Sheba gobbled them up!

Sarah let Sheba and Rosie outside, and then we let them hang out with us on the couch for a while.  Sheba really enjoyed the company, and Sarah held her in her lap.

This morning, Sheba is still eating and drinking!  Yesterday, I published our newsletter, and asked for donations to replenish the funds that Sheba had exhausted!  I want to thank everyone who sent donations for our Veterinary Care Fund.  I really appreciate your help.


05/11/13 Update:  Sheba was adopted yesterday by Susan from Ocala!
