Ahhh! I just adopted Blueberry 7 months ago & we're in for 2 new knees. The high cost has forced me in searching for funding. Pass along the link. I need as much help as I can get.http://www.gofundme.com/Blueberry

Blueberry really hasn't had a 'sound' day since I got her. I could never pinpoint where she was off. I couldn't tell if it was front or back, left or right. Sometimes I thought she was sore in 2 legs. Well about a month ago, I took her out for a short 'shuck the ball' round. We had been cooped up while taking care of my husband who just had a double knee replacement. (I don't think knee replacements are contagious!?) We got home, I fed her & turned around & she was on 3 legs...not putting any weight on her rear left. I took her to the vet & several xrays later...she had a compromised left knee with arthritis, suspect right knee & an old bone injury on her right leg. She was rescued from LA from a breeder...no telling what happened or when. My vet could not get Blueberry to show any pain. She was so stoic. Not a growl or a whimper. I was referred to a specialist. He nailed the diagnosis immediately upon a physical exam. Blueberry whimpered... Long story short...she need 'TPLO' surgery in both knees. Left on immediately, right one later.
She's now on pain killers, no activity (try doing that with a 16 mo pit bull). She's slowly destroying her right knee protecting her left, so now she needs the right asap after the left. Needless to say...with my husband having two knee replacements & 2 eye surgeries in the last 6 weeks, funds are low...therefore the call for help. Her first surgery is 3/29. Please pass along the link to as many friends as you can. I will post updates & pictures as we go along.
I forgot to add...Blueberry is worth every penny. She is the best dog. I have had alot of dogs...mostly large mutts. When I adopted her, my choices were pit bulls or chihuahuas. I took a chance & it was the best thing I ever did. I trust her more with my grandkids than any of our other dogs. Thanks for the help.http://funds.gofundme.com/index.php?route=printmedia/donationposter&print=1&url=Blueberry&r=4178
