Woke up this morning and was getting kids ready for school. Went into the laundry room to get shirts for the boys and normally Maya jumps up to greet me (where their pen is) and Bruiser just sleeps. Today, Bruiser was pacing and Maya was laying, all curled up. I thought, boy that is weird and called her. She didn't move. I thought she was dead. I picked up her up and she was as limp as a rag doll. I rushed her to the vets and called on my way. The vet raced in as well and the techs started an IV immediately etc. Anyway, she has fluid on her brain. They think it's hydrocephales (sp?) but she is almost 2 (in January) so she is old to have this. So they think maybe she had head trauma but I can't think of anything that could have happened to her. She was FINE last night when I went to bed at 11. The vet had me race her down to K State University hospital so she could be seen by a neurologist and I made the trip. Got pulled over by the most hateful man who gave me a speeding ticket and never even offered an "I'm sorry", "good luck" or anything. Shaking my head at that one. She made it barely alive with lots of neuro symptoms. They did give her lasix and fluid when she was at the normal vet and are running an ultrasound now to see what's up. But she is bad. I am so upset and am barely holding it together. Please pray for Maya. Thank you.

OMG this is terrible news. She is in my prayers and so are you!. Bless her little heart. Sorry about the ticket. The policeman has no heart that is for sure.

Take a deep breath and know she is in good hands. The universities have all the latest equipment and information to take great care of her.

Tricia,
I'm so sorry to hear that. It is so scary with these dogs because the least little thing can turn into a major emergency and it's even worse when you don't even know that something has happened. I really hope she'll be fine. I'll def. pray for her.

What a bastard of a cop!? Nice compassion!

Oh no! I'm so sorry about Maya. We understand how frightened and worried you are about her. Bella and I send you and Maya positive thoughts and hugs.

In my opinion, the police should have more compassion for a very sick chihuahua, and just give you a warning and not the speeding ticket.
