Biene's Bones

Doesn't looking at that broken bone just give you chills? This poor little rat terrier was adopted from the SPCA by someone I know from a social networking site ( She somehow escaped from the facility and was hit by a car. They put a cast on her leg and the adoptee was told she had a minor fracture. Ah, wrong.

Here's a photo of her shortly after adoption and before being diagnosed as having a serious break requiring pins and plates. The adoptee is a college student, with some family support, who was devistated to learn the correct surgery would near $3,000; however, she was bonded and knew if she took the dog back she would be destroyed. So she up a blog at Biene's Bones to try to raise money toward her surgery and report on her progress.

Even though she couldn't afford the expensive surgery, she went ahead and did it for the sake of the dog. Once healed Biene should be able to run and play like a normal rat terrier puppy!

If anyone reading this can afford and is it interested in donating ANTHING toward the surgery, please go to the site Biene's Bones (another blogspot account) where there are instructions for two types of donations. Either a paypal directly to the owner or new instructions on how to pay the vet directly.
So far she has raised $469!! There is a toteboard on the site to help keep track of the donations raised. I'm putting my money where my mouth is and going there now.

Oh that is so sad. I am so sorry for the dog. I hope Biene will heal fast and be as good as new. Poor thing.
Jack sends his love too.
