Dear DeDe

Please Pray for DeDe

Something’s wrong with DeDe.

My sweet, happy girl

My sweet, happy girl


She was fine when I got home from work. She jogged around the yard, smiling and wagging her nub of a tail.

She inhaled her supper, as always.

But a bit after 8 PM, she had trouble standing. She couldn’t pull herself up or walk straight.

I have her an aspirin and it seems to have helped with the pain. This morning she ate just fine, but she is still in pain and is having problems squatting to potty.

We’re off to beg the vet to work us in today.

It's sad to not see her with her happy face.

It’s sad to not see her with her happy face.


Please pray, send good vibes, or whatever you can muster for her.


About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

    Sorry to hear Dee-Dee is not feeling well. Our dog; Buddy has had several episodes where he can’t stand or when he walks, he falls over sideways. We believe he has a back problem.
