Oh jeez, just when we all thought she was well on the roadto recovery too. Let us know how the xrays turn out. That poor girl,again, I am SO glad you rescued her. I am just so angry right nowthinking of those **insert word I can't type here but use yourimagination** people doing that to her. :X

Thanks for the compliment on the avatar, I love that picture of him, thinking of getting it printed up and framing it.
i think we are all feeling a little sheepish,, the vet saysfrom the xray it looks as though it's been dislocated for a while,unsure how long...but her right balljoint of the hip was completelydislocated. They said since it has been out for a while they are notsure if it will stay, but we sedated her and put it back in, but itdoesn't sit fully into the socket. It is taped into place,and she is staying at the office for a few days because the vet didn'twant her to travel untill we know if it will hold in place... THe sagacontinues... And I feel like an idiot for not even noticing...Guess Inever thought a bunny who could kick me so well could possibly have adislocated hip... At least her pelvis isn't broken.

Well, with that tumor on her face, I'm sure it wasn't something that caught your eyes.

I'm glad you are trying to get her hip in place. That's just...... What the heck happened???

Those things make me want to contact the ASPCA.... I mean.... how abused and neglected was this baby? ya know?

Yeah, it's good she's getting a chance... it's just very sad that her condition is so poor.

She seems like a fighter and a good girl.

Poor little Daphnee - no wonder the people yougot her from left as soon as they did. She must be counting herblessings to be away from them and with you now. I hope her hip managesto stay in place, but I guess it depends how long it has been likethat. Give her a hug - and my Brice too :D- Jan

wittle man brice with be excited to hear you are thinking of him ;)

she couldn't get into the pet taxi fast enough today. I hrld it up tothe kennel door and in she goes.. She was very upset we hadn't givenher a litter box last night, but she was still a bit drugged,and a little drugged with a taped up back leg doesn't go overwell. the angel she is didn't go potty AT ALL over night and she waiteduntill i gave her a litter box this morning.. she hopped in and"flooded" the box. poor darling. She had tossed hay into her water overnight, but thankfully hadn't tipped it over.. She did however mannageto get her foot out of her "bandage" but prayers, fingerscrossed and any other good luck she can get. Her hip is still in placewe xrayed it to be sure.... if it stays 2 weeks we should be ok *knockon wood* so she is on extreamly limited activity.. *PAWSCROSSED*

You'll probably find this Bun will love you forever and a day, like I said earlier animals know when someone genuinly(sp) loves and cares for them. Hearing your tale really helps torestore my faith in people.

Yes it makes me very angry that people abuse animals and humans, but itsure makes me heave a huge sigh of relief that there are people whostill care enough to help.

Good luck and I'm sure with you on her side she'll do great :D

I do know I'm gonna have to find her her very own pet taxi tokeep in her cage with her, she just adores sleeping in the pet taxinow. But i really like the one she is sleeping it, it pops apart easy,has all it's peices, so i think i'll have to find her some cheap onethat will do the trick, shoot if it were yard sale time i could pickher up one that was missing a few parts.. she doesn't need the door..

I'm glad someone faith is being restored, because for mehaving come accross her just brings disapointment in people. Grantedthey were trying to rehome her but at what cost to her?What if somebrand new bunny person took them at faith she was perfectlyhealthy...Thay HAD to have known something at least wasn't right withher, right? And to just say oh yeah she a very old rabbit, litter boxtrained but healthy??? come on...

They likehaving their own little retreat don't they? Bo has thatrubbermaid shelf box and he LOVES it. I have thought ofgetting him something a bit bigger, but I don't know if he'd like it asmuch. He licks his beddy bye, he chins it, he arranges hisblankies, he licks his puppy ..... it's so funny to watch him preparefor bed :)

Some my guys have "logcabins" but the opening is in the front..and i don't think the largestsize would be a comfortable fit for her, as it tends to really be morefor the 4lbs to 5 lbs rabbit size.. a couple ofmine have anextra litter box filled with hay that they use as a bed, and they knowthe difference, one is a potty one is a bed, but I think she woulddefently want something designed like a pet taxi...I pick her up pettaxi and all to clean her cage, set her on the floo she pops her headout far enough to nose me, then back in she goes and waits till i puther back in the cage, where apon she inspects my cleaning job LOL;)
