september 3rd, 2012 ::: hey world!!! I'm making my debut. My name is Kirby and I'm a year and a half old terrier mix and weigh about 17.4 pounds. I have brachial plexus (my arm is paralyzed). I am in a shelter in Southern California and I was scared that this week might be my last. BUT I just learned that my friend Whitney (who is an awesome Navy gal) and her friend Rebekah (who is a cool Marine) have gotten in touch with some MORE Marines in a place called Alabama.
Whitney seems excited and says that I have a "commitment" from the Marines!! I feel special :) Seems that these military ladies can get stuff done and have a plan for me. They are raising money to "fix" my arm and then Rebekah will foster me at her house while I get to feeling better. Lisa will fly out to California and bring me back with her ON the airplane on October 5th!! I hear it is hotter in Alabama but that ok, I think the adventure will be fun!!
You can keep up with my story and progress on FB. A Chip-in will be set up next week to help with my vet care and transport.
update: september 13th: i have had my surgery and I feel fine!! i am resting at my foster moms house for a while. they say that in a couple of days i will be up and running and back to normal :)
