********If you don't know what happened to Maggie read this .
I have good news, and bad news. Despite Maggie's broken leg and paw she is walking. every hour one of the nurses takes her on a walk around the facility. When i went to visit her she was on one of her walks. When she saw me she tried to jump up but her couldn't because her leg. she was so sweet and i couldn't hold back the tears. I went in to her "room" and plaid tug with her and then she fell back to sleep. So anyway the bad news. She is having trouble breathing because of her collapsed lung so they nurses have to monitor that. What i worry about the most is that she will have hip problems when she is older, i know i should take it one step at a time but cant help it.... If she stays how she is now she will be able to come home tomorrow. Everything is just so sad. I feel very guilty today, and keep seeing her get hit again and again in my head.Thanks for all the support everyone, ill either update again tonight or tomorrow morning.

How is Maggie today??? Our dales have made so many escapes I've lost count. They just don't have road sense which terrifies me.
Poor Maggie. I hope her injuries don't cause her too many problems.

Take care.

My hooman girl & I are praying for Maggs, and hope she DOES get to come home tomorrow.

Please give her a big mushy hug from me and some smooches on her punkin head.

Don't be too hard on yourself. It was an accident and could have happened to any of us.

Hammer said...

Dear Maggie's Mum
We are all praying hard that Maggie's collapsed lung will heal up very quickly. She is a strong girl and she knows how much you love her, so she should be fine. Please don't feel guilty. It's not your fault. I don't come when I'm called all the time, neither does Hobson and Rose. Also, don't think about the future. Think about NOW. Jessie was born with the worst case of hip displaysia mom's vet had ever seen and he did not expect her to live past 3yo. Because of regular, gentle exercise, a natural diet and natural products for arthritis and no drugs e.g. Ester C vitamin powder is very good for arthritis, Jessie was still going strong at almost 15yo.
Hugs and kisses from Hammer, his mum and their family

Jan said...

Penny & Poppy said...

Dear Maggie's Mom,

Please don't blame yourself, for this. Most dogs don't have the fear of cars that they should have. I don't know of any way to teach it to them without them getting hurt. We are praying for Maggie's full recovery! And we are praying for it to happen very quickly. Please take care of yourself AND Maggie!

Lady Kaos said...

Hi Maggie's Mom!
I've been reading about you on a lot of other blogs and just had to stop in to send my good wishes and good vibes. My little dacshund sister hardly ever comes when she's called and we live on a busy street, too. Mom freaks out every time my sister points her nose at the street instead of the car or the front door, so we know you have to be feeling really bad, but don't! Mom has a quote written down in her little book of quotes she loves about how guilt doesn't fix anything or help anything, it just makes it worse. Without the guilt, both you and Maggie will feel much better faster.
Keep us updated. I've added you to my list to read everyday. Even though I don't know Maggie, I'm still worrying about her and praying for you and her.

Balboa & Mommy said...

OH NO, Maggie you are in our thoughts for a speedy recovery.
I am glad your mommy was there to help you and took you to the vet right away, you are such a brave girl.

I hope that terrible man gets whats coming to him for not stopping and helping.

Frenchie get well hugs and kisses

Jackson said...

Hey Magz, wishing you a speedy recovery. Get well soon pal! J x

PB & J said...

Oh my - our woofie is an Airedale too! They are very resilient pups - we're hoping for a speedy and full recovery for Maggie.

Our mom says that her old Airedale was hit by a car and suffered long term arthritis in her hip - but, being an Airedale, that it never really stopped her!

Anonymous said...

The Mom and I have our paws crossed and are sending good vibes to Maggie! Puppy kisses and I hope you feel better and get to come home soon!
