...They say it's your birthday...

Today is my Birthday. They are coming faster & Faster & FASTER! LOL! We also celebrate Phil's birthday along with mine. The place... errr...pig sty...he came from is down the road from my home a little ways. I saw him when they first got him as a tiny puppy, so we can sort of "guesstimate" that he was born in March sometime...4 Years ago.

I got (took) Philly when he was about 7 or 8 months old & knocking on deaths door. He was such a sick & emaciated pup & his "owners" were just going to let him die, like the other dog they had let die the week before. It looked like he had parvo from the symptoms, but Thankfully was Coronavirus instead, which has the same symptoms. You can only imagine the shape he was in. I really only expected to pay to have him humanely put to sleep & end his misery, poor boy. But...after 3 days of Excellent Care & IV fluids at my Vets office...he made a Miraculous Recovery! I got to bring him home to finish nursing him back to health & here he is today! My beautiful Philly Boy...Happy & Healthy. Happy Birthday Buddy! I hope to celebrate lot's more birthdays together.

Oh yeah...the Wonderful Vets who saved my Phil...well...they are now my Bosses! LOL!

Happy Birthday to you both
Bless you for saving Phil, you are a sweetheart. You know pit bulls are very dear to my heart also, we have two. Yours are beautiful. As I've said before, they are very misunderstood dogs, and they don't deserve it. They are very loving, affecionate and loyal dogs.
Have a great day, and give those pitties a hug from me

Thanks Cookie & Cheryl! You are both so sweet! Chief...the Brindle & White boy was a "cast off" from our office. His owners abandoned him w/ multiple injuries from being hit by a truck. After they were given every possible opportunity to respond...our Vets transferrred him to me. I was only going to foster him in the beginning, but after a couple of weeks, we realized that he would need another surgery, this one on his knee...sooooo...He is a permanent family member now too. He fits right in!
