Lola Belle

I wanted to do a little post about our beloved French Bull dog Lola. She is the only female in this house with me and I love her dearly. Two weeks ago at the beach Lola was her normal self; running, jumping, etc. On Sat. the 4th of July she slowed down a bit and we thought she was just tired. On Sunday she was just slow and didn't walk around much. My mom thought she was hot and we put her inside the beach house she didn't move off the couch all day. She wouldn't eat anything, not even shrimp! Ryan was headed back to Lindale to work and I had him take Lola with him. He said when he got home she laid on her bed until the next morning and didn't move. Monday morning she couldn't stand up on her own.

Ryan took her to our local vet in Lindale Dr. B. He ran every test he could for two days and he found nothing. On her x-rays it looked like there might have been some fluid around her spine. He recommended she see a neurologist in Dallas. So after alot of work Dr. B got her an appt. in Dallas. Ryan took her and they began their work to see what was wrong. They explained she needed and MRI. Let me just say those are expensive not to mention if they found anything that would be more money to fix whatever was wrong. Ryan and I thought we had to do it, our only other option was to put her to sleep. So Lola had the MRI and they found a herniated disk. The Dr.'s said they don't know how she was bearing the pain, she had never even made a whimper. It was one of the worst cases they had seen. Lola had spinal surgery and is now making a recovery.

Lola is now classified as an investment!! LOL! We are so happy she is okay and doing well. It looks like she will be back to herself in no time!! That is good thing because she has two little boys that love her and can't wait to chase her around!
