Hi, Buddy update
I am a little upset at the moment but I am trying to hold it together. I just dropped Buddy (remember the SUMO Yorkie I finally adopted after being his pet sitter and after HE lived a life of neglect for his first four years? I am also Dixie Cups Mom to refresh you memories!) off at my vets for some extensive testing. His lower jaw has been quivering uncontrollably with his tongue darting in and out of his mouth for about 10 seconds and of course, I am thinking seizures. I hope it's nothing but I pray that the worst scenario is only seizures, if, indeed, he has anything wrong. She is also testing for liver shunt which as most Yorkie people know is very close to a death sentence. At the moment I am NOT too worried about this event since he IS 4 3/4 years old...I would think that if he had liver shunt, this would have shown up. Sigh, he is without a doubt, so damned sweet...of course, now I totally love him and he and Dixie ARE DOINGWELL. Ok, ok, I'll stop here cause I have no answers until I have them, right? This is just so upsetting...thanks for listening. Buddy's new Mommy

I didn't know a liver shunt was very close to a death sentence. I know some that have lived a long heathy life after getting fixed.

I'm so sorry that happened to Buddy. It was an accident and accidents happen. Keeping my fingers crossed that Buddy's injuries are not serious. Please keep us informed and Take Care.....

We're sending prayers that Buddy will be ok and it's nothing serious.
Poor baby needs a break from pain.
Buddy's sending Yorkie hugs to his YT Buddy and so am I.
