I have a 1/2 hav, 1/2 shih tzu male pup, about 8 months old, Ollie. I attribute all his good traits to his hav side
I've been watching my co-worker's JRT mix for 14 days (3 yrs old, rescue), for over a week now. If you can imagine a whippet crossed with a JRT that's what Pollack is like. 2x the height of my boy, fast (3-4x faster), dominant, never tired. They are friends before I started watching Pollack (Ollie likes everyone), but Pollack always plays rough, and like to throw his weight around to keep Ollie pinned (Pollack's mouth to Ollie's throat). Increasingly, over the last 9 days, I've noticed Pollack's play has become more dominant or aggressive... not letting Ollie up from a pinned position (until I show up) and two nights ago, for the first time Ollie cried (puppy cry) 4-5 times in a row, and Pollack didn't let him up (or whatever he was doing to him) till I entered the room, then Pollack ran out to the backyard.
last night, their 8pm play session was short, and didn' go well.
This morning Ollie was lethargic, and when I put him on the floor to eat, I noticed he wasn't putting any weight on his left back leg. Took him promptly to the vet. Ollie broke his tibial tuberosity. He's in surgery now, to put pins in to hold the bone in place so it can heal. The estimate for all his care is $2500 - $3k.
One of my hav friends thinks my co-worker should pay for it all.
It's not my nature to keep accounting of debts... but my co-worker owed me $15, and didn't pay up for 8 months. I thought she'd forgotten, and I mentioned it only when I gave her the receipt, I was fine with losing the $15, but wasn't going to do any monetary favors for her in future.
I'm not worried about the money, whether she wants to pay anything at all reflects on her, not me. I email her with daily updates, and I already emailed her today, with a strictly factual acct. I feel really guilty that I didn't protect my baby. I break up their play 5-8 times a day, Pollack gets really grunty and snarly, and Ollie is always quiet, except when P made him cry two nights ago.
anyway, please keep him in your prayers that he'll have a full recovery, I'm very sad and worried he won't be 100%.
and Ollie got fixed 9 days ago (all better from that). Man, Ollie needs a bath really bad too, oh well! Thanks for thinking good thoughts for my ollie pop.
