YODA the JEDI Has now gone to a new home. Love you little man!! Have a wonderful life!We today were successful in getting this poor little dog secured for Chihuahua Rescue. He was listed as a five year old. The vets have phoned to say he is much older than that. We have agreed to take him in anyway as the poor little guy deserves some peace and love for his final days. Not sure how old he is. They still insisted on desexing him! We are requesting some assistance with his costs, if anyone can help it would be appreciated. Council release fee $271.00 Vet additional fees (NSW) $117.10 Transport fee to Cranbourne Vic. $50.00 Further Vet Treatments and medications 19/6/12 $82.90 Donations received to assist with his costs:- Lisa Carr $20 Donna Aitken $25 Rachel Ward $50, Helen Smith $5 Olga and Simon Kearney $30 Wendy Madden $25 Eva Staszewska A$32 Alison Barclay $5 Joyce and Russ Griffiths and Sophie $20 Garner Family $30 Jane Oscar $20 Lisa Carr $10 Marion Hill $5 Maria Jenkins $50 Karen Gray $100 Danni Metcalf $20 Many thanks to all who have contributed to Yoda the Jedi's expenses. He appears to have some health issues which we will get checked in the next few days. His urine is very smelly and very dark in colour, so that worries me a bit. 19th June, 2012 Yoda took a trip to our Vet today. Those thick ears are cauliflower ears caused through very severe ear untreated long term ear infections! His right ear is so severely infected with several different bacterial infections including the Rod Bacteria. Samples taken from his ear looked very much to me like there is also blood in it! His left ear is also infected but not to the same extent. Poor little man, he must have suffered for possibly years!! Yoda has a fairly bad heart murmur classed at a grade 4 to 5, and his luxating patellas are classed about a grade 4. The heart problem will not be treated until we can get his ears cleared up! So he has come home this morning with Baytril Antibiotic tablets, Tricin eye ointment for his left eye, and Otomax Eardrops. Discussion on how old we all think he might be was quite funny! No one has ANY idea. I thinks he is a bit younger - maybe 9 to 10, and Catherine thinks he could be more like 12 to 13 because he looks soooo scrawny and thin. So finally decided we will wait until he is feeling a lot happier and gains some weight before trying to guess his age! He is such a darling little dog. Despite all the hurts and handling today not once did he bare a lip or growl, just a tiny whimper when it hurt, and those darling little eyes looking straight into mine begging for me to help him!
