    Not Wounded, Sir, but Dead (Yuka's cast Pics)

    cookies to all who get that line

    anywho, I finally uploaded the photos of Yuka in her cast lol... I really need to video tape her hobbling around as it's just too funny! (yes I know I'm mean)

    anyway here they are

    [center]
    Just a couple hours after we brought her home.


    She walks so funny with the cast on (though she is getting more and more used to it and doesn't hike the leg up as high when she walks lol)


    She does a lot of **** puppy sitting!


    They shaved her butt!


    Just a close up - I HATE pink.


    You can see in this picture all the different things she had done. The cast, the pain patch (it's a narcotic! my aunt is taking it off today!), and then her right front leg had a lump that they removed and stitched up. Poor dog looks like she's been through a war!


    closer look at front leg


    She looks like she's trying out for ballet.


    Even eating is done on three legs!


    I've been trying to keep her off of my bed as she wants to jump down a lot and that's a big no no.


    The squishy pout.


    We go in for them to remove the cast and either cast her back up or send her home... another drop off event, though, and I know she's going to hate it...

    Oh poor baby!!! What a sweetie though. I just want to grab that adorable little face & pinch her cheeks!

    Her cast looks like a legwarmer & the tape at the end makes it look like she has a hoof!

    She looks too cute. Hopefully she'll be back on four legs soon.

    Poor Yuka! She's been through a lot. I bet she'll be trying to get back to normal before she should, though! I think her neon pink cast is beautiful!

    Those last two face shots are wonderful!

    Poor Yuka! Poor baby! In that fourth picture down from the top she looks so embarrassed. Too cute, LOL. I'm curious, why did the vet bandage her paw, too?

    you mean the duct tape on the bottom? that's to 1. keep it dry in the snow (though she has an iv bag that we pull over the cast lol I still have to take pictures of that lol) and the other reason is to keep her from chewing the bandage...

    Toni, the title of thread thread really scared me. Great pictures - the cast makes me think "high fashion." Seriously, may Yuka be out of (and the accompanying pain) ASAP!

    She had what's called a luxating pattella (sp) which basically means her knee popped out of its socket... which caused her to sometimes lock up or not get any power from her leg... so the dr. went in and reconstructed it and moved ligaments around and re-built her knee...

    1600 bucks later (and counting!) and she will have this horrible scar (pictures to come soon, she's in a bad mood at the moment, doesn't feel good lol) but she'll be turbo pugging in no time.
