Mercy Me

Here's a Mercy update - she's doing well and seems to be finally relaxing a little. She still gets tired easy, but we're letting her decide how much exercise she wants. She is such a sweet girl and just wants to be hugged. Here's a few photos.

Mercy is also starting to steal toys, so she must be feeling a little better! She's gained about 2 lbs and enjoying all the extra attention she's getting. I'm still trying very hard to not be jealous.

Meanwhile, back at the hospital..

Our patients are doing fine. Lucky is getting better and starting to eat again, although she's pretty picky about the menu. She's still at the vet clinic - maybe a bit longer before she moves on to a foster home.

Mercy is improving a little bit every day. Her incision staples came out today and the healing looks great. Her hair has grown out a smidgen, which at least keeps her from having that post-surgery naked chicken look. Camera battery is dead, but when it's charged we'll post a new pic of her. She's seems to be enjoying her foster home and gets along with everybody - me included. Oh, did I mention she's staying at my house?

We really appreciate everyone who's donated on her behalf. She's definitely a worthy recipient!

Well, I don't think the news story mentioned the name Walton Animal Guild, said much about Mercy's surgery or anything we hoped it would say. And maybe it will come later, but as of now there's no link on the news stations website, so I'm not sure anyone will be able to find us.

Oh well, at least it was an semi-interesting trip downtown.

A new TV star

Thanks to our friends at Channel 46, CBS Atlanta, Mercy's story will hit the airwaves tonight at 11 pm. We were proud to show off this sweet girl and hope others find her story as moving as we did!
