Cheyanne, The Miracle Dog

Post by FYI » Fri Dec 27, 2019 10:45 pm

Cheyanne, The Miracle Dog (Paperback)
Anna Marie Blumenstock
Published by iUniverse, United States (2006)
ISBN 10: 0595401325 ISBN 13: 9780595401321

Cheyanne is a cute, red-haired beauty that was found at an Animal Shelter. Cheyanne loved to run and play outside. One cold, icy February day she slid and hit a fence and became paralyzed from a spinal cord injury. The veterinarian said it would be a long road ahead if Cheyanne was to recover at all, and he could not promise she would improve. After several long months of veterinary visits, chiropractor visits, canine underwater treadmill therapy, and even acupuncture Cheyanne slowly started improving. With the love of her boyfriend, Apache, a Siberian Husky, Cheyanne's spirit and courage grew. She even became known as the roller queen pup running and playing in her doggie wheel cart. About three months after her accident Cheyanne started to faintly wag her limp tail. Then after about four months she could stand up and slowly support her body weight. As Cheyanne grew stronger she slowly would take small steps. After about one year she even started running. Cheyanne still is awkward when she walks and has a limp but her recovery has been miraculous. Cheyanne is a wonder dog, or as the veterinarian calls her, CHEYANNE, THE MIRACLE DOG!

This book is nonfiction and has lots of disabled critters--blind, bipod, nopod, and neuro, just to name those that come to mind. It's a happy little book! https://www.amazon.com/Unlikely-Friends ... 433&sr=8-2
