MORE THAN FISH IN THE SEA
Two days ago some men that live on a boat in one of the Isla Mujeres Harbours literally fished this little old dog out of the ocean. They kept him over night and then brought him to me. He was in such bad shape, I can’t even imagine where he came from or how long he’d been swimming. His eyes and ears are infected, his nails were so long that his toes were twisting sideways and he has a bad case of ehrlichia. These are only the things that we can see.
Justin was the name of one of the men so we called him Just-in. Ha Ha. We bathed him right away, he was crawling with fleas and then he slept for 24 hours. We would wake him up for some liver every once in a while. Last night he started to move, what a treat that was. He even resisted when I cleaned his ears. Yahoo – go – Just-in. He looks fat but it is the water in his abdomen from the Ehrlichia and we think he’s blind plus we’re not sure how well he hears, I’ll keep you posted.
