View Full Version : SM rescue dog in LA update/Charlie

17th December 2006, 08:53 PM
Here is an update on Charlie from an email Molly sent out--the original post about Charlie is in the stickie posts at the top of this forum at

Hello to all of you kind, compassionate and generous folks who donated to Charlie, our pup with syringomyelia.

All of the monies we received from each of you went to pay for Charlie's spinal tap that was done at the California Animal Hospital on Monday, December 11th by Dr. Veronique Sammut. The results of this spinal tap were "normal."
Dr. Sammut is going to consult with Dr. Greg Kortz up in Sacramento and we are going to determine where Charlie should have his surgery.

My biggest hope is that the surgery will make it much easier for Charlie to walk, be more mobile, etc. I promise to keep all of you updated on his progress. Meanwhile, enjoy this photo snapped of Charlie in his swank "doggy condo."

Thank you for making adoption your first option when choosing an animal companion.


here's molly's website, theres info about donating for charlies SM treatment.

Deb with COTW currently has him. She has spoken with Rory's mom re the surgery. We'll see what happens with him from here.

If he has the surgery in Sacramento, I could foster him while he recovers! I emailed Deb last week and haven't heard back from her yet. Cathy - let me know if you hear anything.

Will definitely let you know if I hear anything. I was so glad when she said she had talked to you. I had e-mailed her and told her a little about Rory and how wonderful he's doing now. From her e-mail it sounds like she's been really busy.

Charlie is a precious little bug! I love his face. I'm soooo happy everything is coming together and it would be absolutely wonderful if Kendal could foster him while he recovers. I'm sure Rory would provide tons of support for little Charlie.

Keep us updated!

Charlie cavtiny who was the subject of multiple posts last Fall is now listed with Cavalier Rescue. Here is the link to the information on him: http://www.cavalierrescueusa.org/html/dog_pages/Charlie_CA607.html. Hopefully:xfngr: :xfngr: , the right family to take this little guy in and give him a permanent home is out there. He could be a poster puppy for why SM research and health screening before breeding are so important.
