I wrote about Sandi last week.  Our parent club AGSDR has been helping  her 
along.  I thought you might like to know how she is coming along.   Her 
story is repeated at the end of this mail.  If you want to see her  recovery 
pictures, let me know.

Subject: Sandi Update



First of all I want to thank Jan  for coming with meJ  Sandi is  doing much 
better then she was the last time she rode with me.  Dr Steen  had every 
thing ready for her to go.  We arrived at IVS and the staff  greeted us and 
placed us in a room for consultation with Dr Reimer.  Dr R  had been watching 
Jan and I walk Sandi out in front of the office.  He  could tell she was 
dong much better and putting some weight on her right  leg.  The left leg is 
not quit there yet but should come along with  time.  He checked her reflexes 
and that has improved some.  He  removed the staples.  He said he felt she 
should have a full recovery but  it will take some time.  He was very happy 
with Sandiâ??s attitude and  spunk.   He will call Dr Steen at Freyâ??s and 
give 
him the results.  Sandi does not need to be on antibiotics.  Sandi will 
need to gain  some weight and muscle.  I told him about Dr Dunn foster her when 
it  comes time to release her.  Jan asked about her having a total hip  
replacement and he said maybe later as she gets older.   
We stopped to grab a burger and  Jan bought Sandi a double Cheeseburger 
which Sandi loved.  The ride back  was much better.  We dropped Sandi off at 
Freyâ??s and Dr. Steen said he  has seen a positive change in Sandi.  We 
another 
visit in 5 weeks in  DM. 
I will be contacting Dr. Dunn  about fostering Sandi.  Jan took lots of 
pics so I am sure we will be  seeing them soon.  Jan if you feel I missed 
anything please feel free to  add it.  
Sandi's story

Sandi is the sweetest two year old  German Shepherd 
you could meet. Unfortunately she was hit by a car on  highway 30 near Mt. 
Vernon on Friday, Oct. 16th and although that person  did not stop, 
thankfully 
2 others did. Sandi was taken to Frey Pet  Hospital for x-rays and then 
transferred to the Eastern Iowa Veterinary  Specialty Center for 
stabilization 
and further care. She was well cared  for until Monday, Oct. 19th when she 
made the trip to Des Moines for  surgery. Her doctors at Iowa Veterinary 
Specialists needed to repair a  fractured right femur, fractured left hip, 
and a 
pneumothorax. Thanks to  all of the wonderful people who were entrusted 
with her care, she is now  on her recovery journey! However, the cost of 
her 
surgeries and care are  extensive and currently more than $3500. She still 
has 
follow up visits  and boarding costs so we anticipate her bills to be 
around $4000 when she  is fully recovered. If you are able to donate to
> her care, please send  your donation to Little Paws at PO Box 14, Mt. 
Vernon, IA. 52314 and put  Sandi in the memo line. You can also donate 
online 
through paypal!
