    Default Prayers Please!!!

    I woke up this morning just like any other morning. I fed Spook then got in the shower. I finished getting ready for work then put Spook and George outside for the day. About 8:00 a.m. this morning I got a phone call from a number I didn't know. So I answered and the strange voice at the other end of the line asked, "Do you have a black dog?" My heart stopped I replied yes. He said he just got hit by a car. I told him where I lived he said he's at the end of my road laying in the grass. I jumped in my car and sped off like Richard Petty. I hadn't made it very far and I got a call from Rogers Animal Control saying they were taking him to the local vet. I arrived at the vet expecting the worse. To my relief spook was laying on the table breathing hard but somewhat ok. The diagnosis right now is a small brake on the pelvis, but he will be doing x-rays at noon. I left the vet to go home to see how he got out and the gate was open. I don't know if spook jumped and unlatched the gate or if someone opened it. I'll be putting a lock on the gate from now on. I know everyone on here are dog lovers so I ask as you read this to say a short prayer that everything else will checks out ok and that he has a speedy and healthy recovery. Never thought I'd tear up over a K-9, especially one I've only had a year. Boy was I wrong.

    Thanks for the support,
    Andrew Fairchild

    Just got a call from the vet. He said the fracture doesn't stop behind the hip joint but rather carries on past the hip joint. He said he's goint to need surgery. I'm 23 I live on my own and there is just no way that is financially possible right now. Things really arent looking good. I really appreciate all the prayers and could use many more to come!

    Thanks,
    Andrew
