"She is in terrible condition. Her back legs splay out to the sides which you can see a little in the one pic from last night. With help, she can get herself going enough to walk outside a short distance and go to the bathroom. The poor old soul is actually house trained. She balances on her front legs to potty.

I will be transporting her this morning and Molly will come and pick her up to take her directly to the vet. A vet will have to trim the nails. They are extremely long and cause her to walk on her ankles... when she can walk... due to her hips. When they grew, they grew out straight for the most part instead of curling under. I guess this is a good thing.
She is so sweet, fragile and extremely heartbreaking. I had to take large cutters and cut the old flea collar off her last night. It had been on her neck for years. I trimmed a few of the large hanging mats off but there is not much else I can do. I don't want to hurt her in any way. "

I'm in tears seeing these pictures. If she wasn't so far away I would gladly provide respite care for her where she would be loved and cherished each of her remaining days. I pray that with some food, lots of love and a little Vet care she can pull through all this. Again, words can't express enough my graditute to Molly for helping her and going that extra mile to at least give this girl a chance. PLEASE keep us posted.

Just wanted everyone to know I got an email from Molly. Emma is at the Vets where she will be for a few days. She is very frail but getting the care she needs. I guess a lot of her coat will need to be shaved off but I still think she will look wonderful. Lets keep her in our thoughts and prayers. Molly mentioned getting some new pics on Saturday, so stay tuned.

She said the staff at the vet's office cried when they saw her condition.

Just checking for any news of our little lady this morning. She remains in my thoughts and prayers. I sure hope she had a good nights rest last night and is feeling better today.
