    Main casting of the hay mower, was a rust ball, this is first coat of paint after rust removal and some major old grease removal!

    Ok, in Fresno now, be back home in a couple hours. Update on Rogue, she's still doing good, but she's feeling that leg today. They said she keep trying to walk amd use the leg that isn't there. She's still drinking, so far the only thing she'll drink is water, she won't drink broth or anything else. Not eating yet. Going to the bathroom fine though. They made her a bed by the woodstove so she can stay nice and warm. Still nice and alert. Hopefully she'll be ok.

    Do you have enough antibiotics? I would donate to help her, Lacie.

    My daughters dog got ran over by a ups truck and long story short no vets would help her, and she has two less toes and one less leg. I did all I was able to do to get her fixed up, so we're just praying it's enough and she'll pull through it.

    Thank you Danielle, they're getting a bottle of penicillin tonight, so she should be good. I appreciate the offer though!

    They might try some melted vanilla ice cream - I had s vet tell me it helps settle their stomach and gives little energy boost.

    I'm back, Rogue seems to be doing ok so far. She keeps trying to get up and use her leg though, that can't be helping.

    It should be fine, it's just a natural instinct, she will get it soon. As long as she's not ripping open stitches then she's ok, just keeping her muscles moving ;)

    Lacie , can you fashion a splint ? Something that she can stand on and not affect the leg wound itself …..You will most likely have to fashion it around her good shoulder and attach to the bad legs shoulder…….i know that isn't clear at all , I'm sorry , i can't explain it well at all.
    Or , give her one heckuva cushion on that bad leg so she doesn't put any pressure on it. I would fashion rolled cotton around the whole entire leg and carry it down way past the stump ( if you will ) and just ball it up so she can't injure the end. I hated using the work stump , sorry :(
    Its going to be easier to do that then to keep her down , unless you put her in a small crate where she can't get up. I don't like the crate idea though……can you guys get her to a vet now for a check up on it or won't they see her now ? You did a fantastic job Lacie :)

    We might have to do at least some sort of cushioning. And nope a vet won't even see anything out here for a surgery aftercare if the surgery wasn't done by them.
    No one out here cares about the animal, only the money.
