It's with a very very heavy heart and deep sadness that I have to report that little Scooter did not make it through the night. Robyn just called me hysterical at the loss of her baby. He fought a good fight to stay alive and I know everyone did the best they could but his little body just couldn't fight anymore.
Please please pray for Robyn and her family, as well as the Vet and his staff. This has effected them all very deeply because everyone was so rooting for this little guy.
Thank you to everyone for your prayers and support. For all the love and care those gave to this sweet boy and his family.
God Bless Robyn for doing all you could to save Scooter.
Fly like a sweet angel now Scooter. We love you
Robyn posted an update today. Scooter had his surgery to remove his leg.....here is her post. And I'm adding a new photo of him.
"Vet said Scooter did great threw the surgery!!! Yay! He is not completely awake yet but coming out and doing fine!!! I'm so glad! What a relief!! Thanks for all the little puppy prayers! I pick him up at 11 tomorrow, I will post pictures then!!"
Thank you again all who donated money toward his care!
Just wanted to update you little man Scooter, the Boston Terrier with an injured leg. It looks like he's going to lose the leg after all. Robyn will be taking Scooter to the Vet on the 10th to discuss surgery for his leg removal. It's really sad but this little guy will have a better quality of life without his little bum leg.
We will post an update once he's had his surgery. This is when things are going to get really expensive for Robyn so the donations everyone has sent will help them so much.
God Bless everyone for helping this family and this sweet little boy.
This is an update from Robyn today....not very encouraging news for sweet Scooter. :(
Copies from Robyn's facebook page.....
Update on Scooter... He is healing, but not the right way. Vet is impressed with the progress, even though it isn't the right way we go back in 2 weeks to trim the flesh that is not healing off. At that point in time we are going to start talking about the leg removal. Poor puppy!
Please keep Scooter in your puppy prayers. God can work miricals with our sweet beloved pets.
Thank you Robyn for this update!
An update from Robyn about Scooter. He still needs your prayers please. This little guy is still fighting that infection. This is from her........
Just wanted to give every one a quick little update on "Scooter the Trooper"... He is no better or no worse... His open wound is still oozing . We are still on all the medications... I wish the infection would just quit!!!
I asked if he was spirits were and she said.......
He hobbles around great! Wants to play, but gets way tired fast! Sleeps A LOT! I know it's because of the infection. So I sit with Hom wrapped in a baby blanket on my lap and let him sleep he is getting spoiled!!
Keep up your good work to work out that infection Robyn. See the vet can't sew h im up until the infection clears up. You can't sew up an infected wound. So that's what's holding this little man back right now.
Thanks everyone for your support! It means the world to Robyn's family and this sweet little guy Schooter!
This is an update from Robyn on her visit to the vet today. They didn't make it in because we got snow, she lives in the country and schools were delayed. Robyn is a school bus driver so she got him in fast as she could today. This is her update ..........
So Scooter and I just got home from the vet. He said I was doing a wonderful job BUT we still have the infection. It is healing, and due to the broken leg it is swollen. He says we aren't out of the woods yet, he is still in very critical condition we were given enough supplies to last until our next visit on December 27th. He won't make any decisions on what to do with the leg until the infection is gone. If we go in now, the infection will spread quickly and we could loose him! I thank every one that has sent donations in! I will keep you posted on how he is doing!
please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. This little guy has a huge spirit.
Thank you everyone who has donated. This is helping this family so much at this time right before the holidays and most important this sweet boy who deserves a strong chance of surviving this!
Momma Robyn has been given stricked instructions on how to keep Scooter's wounds clean for now and I know she's giving him the best care possible.
He will see Dr. Hendrickson at Wayside Veterinary Clinic on Monday.
Praying for you precious boy!
