Firstly Betty and I would like to say a big THANK YOU to all of you for your amazing support and good wishes and like to apologize for the late up date.

It has been a very up and down day - when we woke this morning Betty did not look very good ( to me she looked worse than the previous evening) She was very lethargic , she was having difficulty breathing (we counted her breath rate to be about 100 per minute)and all she really just wanted to do was sleep.
However by the time we took her to the vet at 11.30 she did seem to have picked up a bit. After a thorough examination by the vet we were told that Betty's lungs were considerably clearer than yesterday and her colour was still good. They were slightly puzzled that her breathing was still so fast so decided to keep her in for another Xray. When we picked her up this evening the vet said that her lungs seemed to had improved further still and Betty was all together move lively. The X showed no further damage to the lungs but did show a small ''blob'' on her back which the vet thought might be a touch of pneumonia and prescribed further antibiotics and a further medicine to keep her airways clear. Although not out of the woods clearly Betty is certainly much better. This evening she is wagging her tail and wants to round around and chew everything in sight! Fingers crossed she is over the worst. We have to take Betty back to the vet on Tuesday for a further examination but at least things are looking a bit more optimistic ( I hope i have not tempted providence).Thanks again for all your goods wishes - you are all a great bunch. I have attached a couple of pics from last week and a couple of Betty in her current state.

I will keep the updates coming.

Oh Betty! I just want to give you a big....but very gentle hug! She does look to be well considering all she has been through. Big hopes and prayers still going out to you! She is a beautiful girl and I hope that all turns out well. Was there an owner of the other dog? someone to pay your ever amounting vet bills??

The dog sitter said she could not see an owner to the dog because she was concentrating on Betty. Luckily Betty is insured:)

I missed your post yesterday - and TBH I am in shock that such a terrible thing can happen top a defenceless puppy.

I hope that Betty continues to go from strength to strength and her confidence does not take a knock from such an ordeal.

Sending hugs from Treacle xoxoxox
