Caboose

ON TEMPORARY MEDICAL HOLD!
At only 8 months old, I think I might be one of the cutest Bulldog babies.
Before you comment that I might be plump, remember that today is, “Only Say Nice Things Day!” So, commenting about my size is not necessary. I admit that I may have gotten a little round around the middle, but I’m not out of shape. Round is also a shape.
I had a family who loved me a lot, but they realized that I needed additional medical care. They knew that Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue was the place that could help me.
I have some problems with my back legs. It was actually something I was born with and, as I started to grow, my problems have worsened.
On Monday, I am going to go sit in Dr. Larsen’s lap and tell her all about my problem. I already know she is just going to love me.
I can walk. In fact, I can actually run. But, I am going to go see Dr. Lay, for sure. He is an orthopedic surgeon and he’ll see what he can do to help me have a wonderful life. I’m told I’ll need to get some X-ays and some diet dog food. Hmm…. that doesn’t sound too tasty, but I’m sure I’ll make it through.

9/21/20 Update:  We all know people love Bulldogs because of their squishy face. Caboose has a squishy body!  She only weighs 41 pounds but is probably 10 pounds overweight for her size. She has great difficulty walking. We thought it was her hips, but X-rays show her hips look perfect. Both kneecaps are badly dislocated and have been that way a long time. She has to be in considerable pain. Dr. Lay will need to examine her to see if surgery will fix the problem. It will be more difficult because she has been that way so long.

Also, being this way so long has put additional pressure on her hips and her front legs. Nothing works the way it should. Once the knees are fixed she will need lots of therapy to help her learn how to walk properly. 

But this caboose is filled with sugar! We will do whatever it takes to make her whole.

10/3/20 Update:  After her spay and cherry eye repair last week, Caboose came into Castle Bulldog Friday. She made herself right at home. She is sweet on her foster dad. She likes to sleep with her head on his shoulder. We are working on house breaking and manners. Caboose is catching on to her new routine pretty quick with the help of her foster brother and sister. I almost forgot…. She LOVES her princess tent!

10/8/20 Update:  She is a wild child! She plays with Otis nonstop and is walking more and more. Today, she used the ramp with very little help from me! We’re working on manners and house breaking. She’s moving like a maniac. I think she’s already lost some weight. She LOVES the boys. She snuggles up to Mike and rests her head on his shoulder. She bunny hop runs the length of the living room to chase after my roommate when he leaves for work.

10/12/20 Update:  It has been a very productive week for Caboose. She has fallen in love with Otis Shoeshine. They play and chase each other around all day. I always find her sitting rump to rump with Otis and pumpkin.

She’s learned that *toys* are for chewing, not human limbs or furniture. We are still working on potty training. I think she gets distracted laying in the grass, soaking in the early morning sunshine.
Caboose loves snuggling under blankets and gives out kisses like parking tickets.
I am so excited to tell everyone that Caboose has lost weight! Yesterday, she weighed in at 39 lbs. She also is walking and “running” much more. I’m so proud of her!
