Tobee is an 8 year old miniature poodle. He has a dislocated hip, which cannot be repaired without surgery. He is suffering, cannot get around, and is on pain relievers. He really needs our help.

Tobee Jones: Just want to tell you a little things about our Tobee Pierre Jones. He is so loving. He knows how to wink, shake your hand and give you a kiss when you ask him. He is afraid of the vaccum sweeper. When he see other dogs, he barks and kicks his hind legs. This is so funny because he is afraid of all dogs, big or small. Sam & Midge

pp_animal_568.gif This little dog looks to me like him is sad. This is how Tobee Jones is right now. All he does't right now is lay around and sleep. Midge

Hi, Midge,

I've just blogged about Tobee and will also add his story to my Facebook page. How did he dislocate his hip?

All best,

Michele

Midge: Thank you Michele!!!! All I can say is that we took him to the groomer and before he left the house he was fine. Went to the bathroom and was running around. Whee we got him from the groomer, he wouldn't put his right hind leg down and he fell over. At that point, we immediately took him to our vet. I am on Facebook and I have people praying for him.

VivaleChat: Tobee Jones: Thank you so for your donation. Tobee is a special companion to us. Once I had my purse on the floor and I had a candy bar in it. All of a sudden I looked down and Tobee had the candy along with the paper and was enjoying it. Called the vet and was told that he would be ok since it wasn't a lot. Midge

Hi, everyone, Midge is having a little trouble posting to the forum, so I'm posting a couple of Tobee stories for her (she sent them to me as direct messages).

By the way, Tobee's vet has him down, incorrectly, as a Miniature Poodle. He is only 10 inches high and weighs 8 pounds, so he is a Toy, not a Miniature.

***********

From Midge:

I was just setting here thinking about the cute things Tobee does. He has a blanket that is 16 years old. It was my granddaugher's doll. Tobee has it in his cage. Everyday he likes to go in the bedroom and get his blanket and with his teeth drag it all the way down the hall for us to play with him with it.

Good Morning Everyone,

Tobee is laying in our bed looking at me and wagging his tail. He is ready to get down and he knows he can't jump. It is really cute, because when he is ready to get down and we are not in the room, he barks one time. This is our clue. Going now to try and get him to eat so I can't give him his pain medicine.

Tobee Jones: Hi Everyone, just wanted to update you on Tobee today. We live in an apartment complex and everyday, I take Tobee for a walk. He loves the outdoors. I took him out today and carried him around so he could look around. We are back and he is sleeping.

Tobee Jones: Hi Everyone Out There: It's another day for Tobee and we are Blessed. Waiting to hear from vet as Tobee's leg where it is taped up, looks like it is coming down. When we call the office, they said it may have to be re-raped. We just hip that the hip hasn't popped out again. They have trouble getting it to stay in so the vet could tape it up until we see if we can get the surgery he needs.

Tobee Jones: I was just thinking about how hard it is to get Tobee to eat in the morning so he can take his medicine. He is one who doesn't eat until evening. However, there is one thing that he loves and will eat anytime and that is tissue or paper towels. When we see him streched on the floor you can believe he is eating it. It is so funny when we are trying to get it away from him. I go one way and Sam goes the other way. We will finally catch him to get it away from him. Lesson learned, don't put those things on the coffee table. (smile)

I know how much this means to Tobee and his mom. I'm sure Tobee sends doggie kisses to you!

We're getting closer to our goal. Tobee still needs $866 so he can have his surgery.

Every bit truly makes a difference. Can you help Tobee with a donation of any size? I know he's in a lot of pain, and I hope he can have his surgery soon.

Midge...I am so happy for you and Tobee...

Can you tell us alittle about you and Tobee? Does Tobee have any playmates in the family, either human or animal? Or, is he an only child?

You can tell that your love for him is strong...he sounds like a sweet, little guy.

Did you contact the groomer to see if anything "odd" happened when they were grooming him? Of course, I can't see them really wanting to say something happened or not...

Poor little guy...he's in PAIN and he's waiting patiently for help...I know that we can do this...I can't imagine having my hip out of joint. When I get a slight twinge in my hip it bothers me most of the day...and you know that animals are stoic...you don't know what their pain level is because they are so brave about it...Judy

Tobee Jones: Hi Judy,

Thanks for your concern about Tobee. He is the only one in our house now. We had our granddaughter who we raised with us for 21 years, however she now has a beautiful baby girl and in her own place. When she was with us with the baby, Tobee was very protective of our. If anybody came around her he would bark. Tobee was the last of the litter when we got him. I say they saved the best for last.

When we were able to find the groomer in the shop, of course they denied that there was anything wrong. Funny that he was fine when we took him. I told them that God will take care of it.

Judy I'm scared right now because Tobee is not doing good. Where they had his leg taped up, it has come down a little and I don't know if the hip is out again. They were able to put it back for awhile after several attempts. Called the vet today and waiting for an answer. I feel that Tobee is looking at me saying, "Help Me" and this make me cry. My husband and I said we can't just let him suffer. When we took him home from the vet, he said he wasn't in pain at that time, however we are not sure of it now. Please keep him in your prayers.

Midge...I know it's hard on you and your husband, watching Tobee WAIT...but, it's going to be OK...believe me, I have faith in the IMOM angels...

In the mean time, can the vet prescribe a pain medication for Tobee? Just something to make sure he's not having such a hard time?

IF the vet has not called you back this morning...call again...and when you do, give them an update on the funds...just to make sure they know you are working on things and also ask how soon after the funds are raised can Tobee get into surgery...

If you do this all ahead of time, you won't have to wait for return calls and lose any time...Hang in there, be strong...Tobee is counting on you...

Remember, we are here when you are having a bad day...that's what we do here at IMOM...we understand and we care...Judy

IMOM angels...little Tobee and his Mom and Dad need our help...

You can tell how much he is loved and it is so hard for his Mom and Dad to watch him and know that he is in pain and they can't do anything for him until the funds are raised for his surgery...

He is a gorgeous little boy and he is depending on us...but for the time being, he is being so good...just waiting with hope in his little eyes...take a look at his photo...let's see what we can do to help him be painfree...

If you can't donate...that's OK...we know that times are really tough for alot of people right now...BUT, pass Tobee's story along to others...and ask them to pass it along to everyone they know...we can do this...Judy

Tobee Jones: The last we knew Tobee's donations were $434. We are grateful for all of that. It hasn't been that long that we came to imom for help for Tobee's surgery so we would like to say Thank you to those that has been able to help. We understand that there are those that at this time their hands are tried. We are in that same situation but I just can't give up on Tobee. We've had friends on FB give their concerns and we say Thank you. Prayer has alot of POWER!!

Today we have had to watch Tobee closely because he wants to bite on his hip and he has broken the skin. We have put some Triple Antibiotic Ointment on him and it looks better. We are not giving up!!!!!
