I collected poor Ellie on Tuesday morning. She's a very gentle soul but I knew when I got her home that she wasn't well. She wouldn't drink or eat anything not even cooked chicken. Her coat was very matted and disguised just how thin she was. She only weighs 5 kilos and is just skin and bone.

Thankfully the wonderful staff in Terenure Veterinary Hospital took her in and put her on a drip. She had a good night but didn't eaten for them either. They did blood tests and they all came back clear. It's just purely neglect that she is suffering from. They expect her to make a full recovery. They have decided to keep her for a day or two and once she is hydrated and eats for them, I can take her home. For the few short hours I had her with me she was a lovely dog and had no problems meeting Ollie. Of course, he did his usual thing of ignoring her which, in the circumstances, was probably for the best.

I have no doubt that once she is given love, food and a warm and caring home, she will make a full recovery and will make a wonderful pet for someone. Fingers crossed and keep the prayers up.

A quick update on Miss Ellie. Unfortunately, she is not doing as well today and is still on a drip :cry: :cry: . The wonderful kind people in Terenure Veterinary Hospital are looking after her and have commentated on what a lovely natured dog she is. Hopefully the next update will contain better news.

I'm afraid the news today isn't any better on Miss Ellie. She is still very sick and the Vet is continuing with her treatment for the weekend. The sad and infuriating thing is, had she been seen by a Vet, prior to being taken into the care of DID, she may not be in the predicament that she is in now. :x :x :x :x Thank God for DID and their compassion for dogs. Please keep up the prayers and positive thoughts for her.

I went to see Miss Ellie this evening. Sad to say there is no improvement. She is still on a drip. The poor little mite is very low and there is a question over whether or not she will make it through the weekend. Again, I have to say that Terenure Veterinary Hospital are looking after her with great kindness and compassion. She is being kept very comfortable and is lying on a lovely soft warm fleece and everything possible is being done for her. She is not in any pain or discomfort but is very very weak. I took pictures of her and they still don't reflect just how terribly thin she is. She is just skin and bone but because she has thick fur it makes her look a lot better than she actually is. It's in the lap of the God's now.

Just off the phone from the Vet. Happy to say there's a slight improvement in Ellie today. Hopefully she'll now turn a corner and start to recover. Will keep you posted.

Great news today. Ellie has finally started to eat and the Vet says she has turned the corner. :D :D :D They are keeping her for another few days just to build up her strength. I'm off to see her later and will update again. Unfortunately, as I am away next week, it has been decided that when she is better, she will go to another foster as it wouldn't be fair on her to have to move from one foster to another after being through what she has been through. Thanks for all the prayers and good wishes. They have paid off. :P

Please take this "I TOLD YOU SO!!!" in the nicest possible way. :D :D Terenure vets are miracle workers in my opinion - they have hauled several of ours back from the brink. :D Thrilled to bits for little Ellie and equally delighted for you, Mary. I know how worrying it is to have to watch them so sick. :? :? But it's onwards and upwards for you now, little Miss Ellie (shades of Dallas there betraying my age! :lol: :lol: :lol: ). Best of luck on your way to your happy ever after. :D
