PostSubject: Please vote for Naomi   December 3rd 2013, 1:02 pm

I received this email from a good friend of mine. Would you please take a moment to vote?


I have a favor to ask of you, and I need to tell you a short story to explain.


David and Misty (older son and daughter-in-law), recently adopted a puppy from a kill shelter. David was trying to be a sweet husband and found some bull dog puppies (Misty's favorite). Instead, they decided to go "save a life." Misty remarked that it would also be so much cheaper and David was fine with that thought.

At the shelter, Misty put her hand into the cage of the "homeliest" (her words, not mine) puppy there. The puppy put her paw on Misty's hand and would not let her remove her hand from the cage. She won Misty's heart at that moment. They waited a few days for the required spaying process and went to pick up their new baby. They named her Naomi.


They noticed that Naomi dribbled urine, but they hoped the cause was some weird after effect of being spayed or just a very excited puppy. The problem reached a point (Misty is about to wear out her washing machine.) of forcing them to realize that they were dealing with something a bit more serious. Off they went to the vet to have a dye test to start to determine the source of the problem. The problem was that neither of Naomi's ureters (the tubes that run from the kidneys to the bladder) were attached to her bladder. So, off they went to a specialty surgeon in Russellville, Arkansas (Remember that part about the selection from the shelter being the cheaper way to go?), who attached the tubes properly in a rather involved surgery. Naomi is now back home and is still dribbling (and that is putting it mildly). The surgery only has about a 75% success rate, and no dog is immediately cured. Either way, the bladder has to be retrained to work properly. I do not know how this story will end.

I do know that the Russellville vet has a great webpage. One feature is Patient of the Week. Each week, he posts pictures of his weekly patients and asks for votes to determine the Patient of the Week. I know it is silly, but with all Naomi and her "parents" have been through, I would love for Naomi to win this honor. If you do not think this is too ridiculous, would you please go the address listed below, then to POTW and vote for Naomi?

When I left school today, Naomi was in the lead. Now another dog is. I am not usually very competitive, but I am for this! I would love our help! D

Nancy, I don't know why the one you posted didn't work for me. It's why I reposted, but it's probably a problem on my end.

All you had to do was mention puppy and it will be done!! Bless them for helping this baby. She can always wear doggie diapers if this is to be her destiny. I hope the bladder retrains itself in time.

Voted too! I think Naomi is my kind of dog, she is so beautiful. MaryLou, I think your son and daughter-in-law are very special. <3

Jack'd, great suggestion about the doggie diapers. I/we can always count on your love of dogs and your wisdom.

OMG! They're all so adorable, but I voted for Naomi! I used to have a dalmation/pit bull mix.
One of the most affectionate dogs I ever had.
