An hour drive to the emergency vet later and he has a broken tib/fib, lots of fleas, and he's adorable. knight hasn't said he can stay yet but after we go to our regular vet with him tomorrow I would say we are pretty well invested right????
What should we call him? DD22 says Oscar.... I'm not sure...
I edit often to fix stuff ☺️
Profoundly grateful Every. Single. Day. that I am blessed with an H with strength, integrity, and compassion, and that he decided to try.
How long does it take to heal? Guess you'll be helping him go potty until it does.
First thought was "Scrumpy" because he's a hot mess right now, but you could call him Harvey Keitel because he's pugnacious...

ETA...he desperately needs a bath and his fur is all matted. I don't think you can see it but he has the cutest really long, black, handlebar like mustache.

Bingo because he's lucky?

Your new member name - Angel of the Knight/Savior of all things cute. Ok. That would never fit as a member name, but what you did really touched my heart.

Thank God you rescued him.
I'm completely blanked out on a name. The only thing that comes to mind is Captain Hugglescuddlebuddy because all I want to do is hug that poor baby.
Ooohh or Clancy.

I was there waiting for my vet to open his office this morning but he doesn't do the pinning so he sent me back to an orthopedic vet in same city as emergency vet (1 hour away). So doggie and I went there this morning and I just dropped him off to be picked up tomorrow.
I absolutely love this orthopedic vet! In my experience as a nurse the specialists are frequently buttholes but this guy was super nice and concerned about the doggy. I told him that we want him neutered and I was worried about his teeth and his fur is all filthy and matted so I was wondering if we would be able to bath him after. He said he would go ahead and fix the leg, neuter him, clean his teeth, check him for heart worms, give him Immunizations, check for intestinal worms, and start him on heart worm meds for us. And we will only have to pay for the anesthesia once this way. Yay!
I told him husband was considering the name Bogart and when he was finished talking with me he picked up the doggy in his arms and as he carried him out of the room said, "come on Bogart, you're going to be just fine."
what you did really touched my heart
But be sure to tell Knight what an awesomely wonderful amazingly sweet husband he is to let me keep him.
