making a long story short: i was at the park with my dog yesterday morning and she took off after a rabbit... i was looking for her for twenty minutes, then received a call that she had gotten hit by a car while trying to cross the sprain brook parkway (during rush hour).
her pelvis is fractured in several places, and her left femur is dislocated. luckily she suffered no internal bleeding or other injury (a couple bumps and scrapes). we decided to go ahead and get her surgery because she still has a very good chance of living the rest of her life as a healthy and happy pooch.
i'll be bringing her to a vet who will let her stay there and receive medication, anesthesia, etc. and have the surgeon perform the procedure at cost. she'll probably end up having her pelvis bolted together, and possibly receive a hip replacement.
please keep her in your thoughts this following week. i'll keep you posted on how she is doing.
