Tonight I had to make one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make. I had to let Libby go. Her injury was far worse than what showed up on the x-ray. The whole ankle was shattered. Her bone quality was not good. Amputation was an option, but with her twice broken front leg and bad bone quality it would put too much stress on her body. So I agreed that the kindest thing was to let her go, because somewhere in my brain I knew that a young healthy dog should not have three serious fractures before her third birthday. I am beyond heart broken. Libby was the sweetest little girl. She got along with everyone, loved her life, but she also suffered a great deal of pain when her poor bones couldn’t withstand the normal playing and running of a young greyhound.
I know so many of you have donated generously to her surgery. If anyone want their donation back, please let me know, otherwise the donations will be used to bring Libby back home and to help another greyhound like her to find a future as a pet.
