Wilys accident

hi all,
as some of you may know, wily was in a horrifying accident while in the care of dallas and his assistant dave. we were out of town on business this past wk. wily is paralyzed from the waist down and is currently seeing a neurologist. i wanted to let you all know so that you can send him your prayers. needless to say my husband and i are devastated. and are hoping for only the best news.

also, if anyone knows of what actually happened, if you could email me and let me know. dallas admitted him to the hospital on tue morning to VMC, but did not inform me until 24 hrs later that there was an ER and i had to come home right away. needless to say, i'm more than frustrated that he did not immediately call me. on top of that when he informed me yesterday he still would not tell me what had happened. the nurse at VMC told me what dallas had told her when they admitted him. however, i still don't know what really happened. dallas has yet to call and even check in on wily. he said that he fired his friend dave. i hope he's not still at the park with anyone else's dogs.. bella, iowa.. if anyone has information, please let me know.

i appreciate all your good thoughts while we deal with this.
thanks
rita.

WilysMom,

I am so sorry to hear of Wily's accident. Even though I haven't had the chance to meet Wily, I am hoping and praying that he will recover.

I know how horrible it is to have something like this happen to your dog while you are out of town. I lost my first basenji nearly two years ago while I was looking for a job in the San Diego area. At the time I lived in Charlotte, NC. My petsitter never called me to tell me that perfectly healthy 5-year-old basenji, Bosley wasn't acting right (didn't want to eat or go for a walk and had had horrible black diarhhea throughout the condo). I came home to find him nearly unable to walk. He died a few hours later from "something toxic" he must have eaten. A necropsy did nothing to determine what that "something" was. I have never been able to fully forgive my petsitter for what I felt was a lack of care and concern.

We hate to have to leave our guys at home and we do the best that we can to make sure that they are in good hand when we have to go out of town, but sometime terrible things happen no matter what we do.

Please keep us updated on Wily's condition.

Rita,
This is unbelievable! Our thoughts and prayers are with Willy right now.
Please keep us updated on his condition and let us know if there is ANYTHING we can do!!!

I am so sorry to hear this news. Please keep us updated, and know that we are sending all or good thoughts to Wily and you as you all go through this.

Sorry about that…I changed it 🙂

Oh how awful. I'm so sorry to hear about your Wily. My thoughts and prayers are with you both.

God how terrible. Did he say it happened at the park this past weekend. God I hope you find out some answers and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

hi all,
thank you again for all of your prayers. our neurologist dr sammut is currently checking with vet-stem on stem cell therapy. she's actually worked with them before so that's a huge bonus.. keep your fingers crossed. anything to help our boy.

thanks again
rita.

hi laura,
this happened on tue morning. i heard from chad who said that he heard from rhonda that they were trying to get him in the truck that morning and he ran onto riverside drive and was struck by a car. they had not put a lead on him and he got away. this is unacceptable and grossly negligent. and dallas still hasnt called us to even check on wily or tell me any of what may have really happened. i've gotten all of this information second/third-hand. unreal.

WilysMom- I am so sorry to hear about Wily's accident.. Its very sad to read such awful news and I wish the best for Wily and your family.. And I hope you get the truthful answers you are looking for.. how horrible..

Keeping fingers crossed and keeping you and Wily in my thoughts and prayers. We had a dog who suffered a spinal injury and surgery was able to return him to an excellent level of living ….for another 11 years. I hope Wily's outcome is as good.

oh my gosh, i'm so sorry to hear about this and i can't even imagine your frustration. 😞 I am praying for a full recovery for Wily.

Prayers and good thoughts on the way for Wily's speedy recovery.

Just out of curosity…who are Dallas and Dave?

and prayers for your furbaby's full recovery. Such a tragic situation especially with no details of the accident and lack of concern from the pet sitters. UnReal!

What a terrible thing to have to go through! I can only imagine the emotions you are experiencing through all of this. Hang in there & I will certainly keep Wiley in my thoughts. I truly hope Wiley makes a speedy & full recovery & that you get answers to what all happened.

Oh man – lots and lots of prayers for you and Wily.

I think the fact that the dog walker is not even calling you makes it worse. I hope he is bonded. :mad:

Wily was chasing Tyler around the park like crazy last Friday – that's the last I saw of him or the walkers.

I'll look for them on Monday during their regular hours.

Hoping for a positive outcome for you Wily.
