Pokey Little Puppy

Here’s my pokey little puppy, Sparkles, adopted New Year’s Eve 2016. She’s not a puppy, but she looks and acts like one. I hate to use the term “pokey” in her case, because she can still zip around, but she has some handicaps. It looks to the vet like she was hit by a car sometime in her life, breaking her front right paw and pulling/ripping a bunch of connective tissue to the shoulder and … breaking her pelvis. It hurts my heart to think that someone didn’t take care of her when she needed it. She is often in pain and does have trouble playing normally with other dogs, which is sad. So, that’s not so neato.

Why then is she on my KeaNeato blog? Well, she’s the best thing that ever happened to me in 2016 and 2017 so far!

    Turns out the vet was wrong. She’s not as injured as first thought. It’s just her leg and paw and she sure can get around just fine!
