A Pinch of Cinnamon

Earlier this month momma received an email from an owner that had a Chihuahua that needed placement. As with all of our squatters momma goes to temperament test them to make sure they are not people aggressive. When they arrived she showed no people aggression what so ever.

However when momma saw this poor little thing and the condition she was in she agreed to take her into our rescue.

The first thing momma noticed was she was underweight, had red irritated skin....

...scabs all over her legs...

...and little to no furs on her feets!

Momma called Melissa at the Vet and asked if they could get her in immediately to be examined.

What you mean "VET" and "Examined"???

Melissa said that they could squeeze her in so off to the vet we went!

Ummm Lady what ya doin do me backside?


Where is that blue stuff goin?

Needles? Medicine? Heartworm test? Skin Test? Benedryl? What are all these words?

Well Dr. Flanary said that she didn't look as though she had mange and that it was probably allergies. So she said to get her on a good quality food and daily benedryl. She would do a skin test when she came back for her spay. Next on the agenda was heartworm test and that came back NEGATIVE. Last but not least was vaccines! Oh boy did she scream. Whew my ears are still ringing!

After that momma took her to Sonic for a cup of water. She loved it!!!!

Poodles why you not warn me of this "Vet" place?

On the way home she kept posing fur the momma....Camera HOG!

Just as we were about to pull in the drive way she laid down fur a nap.

Cinnamon seems to be settling in quite nice but she does growl at us which is completely rude. We are sharing our house with HER!

On one recent outing she showed her true colors to grandma.

She spots her prey.

It takes only seconds for her to go in for the kill.

Yep she is a burger bandit and done took a bite outta grandmas hamburger!

On her one week anniversary (yea momma's bad about posting sometimes) we noticed her feets were getting better. Simply adding good quality food and benedryl has helped!

Wednesday Jan 18, 2012 - SPAY DAY -

We had to wake up bright and early to get Cinnamon checked in for her spay. I pawed through the latest PAWS 4 A CAUSE newsletter.

Why is that lady with a clip board calling my name???

Now thats done lets go get some breakfast!!!!

Thursday JAN 19 2012

That afternoon we return to the vet clinic to fetch the squatter.

Her spay and dental went well but she did have to have a retained baby tooth pulled. It was causing major tartar build up and yuckyness (MOLLIE-ISM). Her skin test revealed a bacterial and yeast infection so we she will need medicated baths once a week. Hope momma don't get no ideas that we need baths once a week.

Mollie can you lead the way?

I is a bit sleepy but doing goods.

hmmm...whats this?

AYE CHIHUAHUA Its more medicine!!!

Well at least with all the medicine she takes nothing will get her!! Now she rests while her tummy heals. I am in charge of making sure all the proper medicine is given in proper doeses. So I might have to dig out my Howl-o-ween nurse costume. BOL

She is officially on now and we are hoping to get some interested families soon but after 48 hours of being on the site we have had nothing. Not one call! Any ideas?

Wags and Licks,
