They shot Sonny for barking
For us, we have seen just how cruel some people can be. I haven't seen that the sheriff has taken a great deal of interest yet either, even though we're talking about gunfire in a Sherwood residential neighborhood. And though we've only lived here a week, it's shocking to see just how careless people are about shooting in the city limits with no apparent consequences.
We both work very hard, and we will go to the ends of the earth for our furry child... And so, we also turn to you, whomever you are, for any help you can offer my devastated family and the vets working to save little Sonny. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
I work at the banfield that sonny and Sonja go to and I was just heartbroken by this story, I was so glad when I went in to work this morning and saw the fax that sonny was able to go home. Your banfield family loves you and hopes for the speediest of recoveries!
I am so sorry. That is ridiculous!!!! We have a gf named Samantha. She is only a couple months younger than Your amazing Sonny. There is no way sonny was a threat to those stupid turkeys. We live here in sherwood. I have shared your story and this page in the sherwood community info page and the sherwood community forum page. I have also shared on my own profile. My family is outraged for your family right now. Is there anything else we can do for you? Guarantee the turkeys he has lost were because of coyotes. Sweet Sweet sonny we are thinking of you buddy.
I'm so very sorry about what happened to poor Sonny. I hope he gets well soon. Dogs can be really resilient. I cannot believe the response from one of the commenter. He had no right to attack you like that. I also hope that you get justice for Sonny. Unfortunately, that's not likely to happen in that area of Oregon. Best wishes to you and your family. Get well soon
I donated because I too, have a service dog (pictured with me) who has escaped when workers left my gate open. Fortunately, my neighbors are sane, and just brought him back to me. My dog is literally worth the price of 1,000 turkeys and has saved my life more than once. These animals are not easily replaced. I pray that Sonny recovers quickly and you find justice for this heinous act against your family member. Thank you for your service!
Sonny is hanging in there. They gave him a medication to bring down the brain swelling which is helping his blood pressure. He is having some major respiratory straining trying to regulate his breathing. The bullet went through both lungs and so oxygen is leaking into his chest cavity but they are confident that that drain is slowing. They're exploring his esophagus for punctures and think that maybe the bullet scathed the spinal cord. Much progress to be made but our sweet guy is holding steady. I'll update when I know more.
Any updates on this guy? What is his prognosis? I'm heartbroken for you and your family. We are a family of dog lovers.
What a beautiful family you have, Sonny !! I am so happy your recovery goes well!!!!
Dear family of Sunny the Sheppard...Please Please checkout a company called Stemtech...I've been a T-8 paraplegic since Sept 1999 at age 39 and am now 54 I started taking there natural supplement called SE3 short for StemEnhance on Jan,10, 2013 and in one week my severe chronic pain has been nearly cured and in the weeks and months to follow my wrists,elbows and shoulders that have been getting worse and worse from the yrs of pushing my wheelchair have completely healed along with many more things that I would be happy to tell you about if you are interested but my main reason I'm messaging you is because they also make this for our four legged family members... A little more then a year ago my ex wifes 13yr old daughters pomeranian had his hip severely fractured from a much larger dog and the Vet said it would cost 3 to 4 thousand for a surgery that they said was no guarantee...She could not afford that kind of money so I bought them a bottle of what I call doggie stemtech and before the bottle was used up her daughters dog was running around like a pup again...there are a lot of Vet clinics and hospitals around the country that know of this company and also purchase and prescribe this for there customers...I know it may sound to good to be true but I'm glad in this case that I did not listen to that often true adage ..In short what it does is to get the bodies bone marrow to produce in large numbers adult stem cells that flood the blood stream going to the ares of the body that is signaling were it needs repair and if your body is in no need of repair the extra stem cells go to replacing the millions of cells that are dying in our bodies daily ..As kids we healed quickly because we had an abundance of adult stem cells from our bone marrow but as we age is slows down and you have more cells dying daily then is getting replaced and this natural supplement helps to level the playing field ...Please investigate for yourself and try at least one bottle for Sunny..I think you will be very happy you did..Even after a little over 13yrs of being paralyzed after trying this I had some feeling come back and can now tell when my bladder is full and can feel a little heat on my feet and shins from the space heater and as I mentioned my wrists,elbow and shoulders healed and a 3rd degree burn on my stomach fom a cassarole dish healed in half the time doctors predicted and the same went for my first skin breakdown on my bottom from all things sitting on a cornut..After that my doctor from Harborview in Seattle wanted to know what or how I was able to heal so quickly and I told them about stemtech and she looked it up and found no reason why I should not continue taking it ..I told them they should recommend this to there patients but they cannot because it is not FDA approved because it is all natural and not a drug..
