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

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.
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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

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!!!!!

Please...let's dig deep in our pockets...no amount is too small...it all adds up and adds to his goal...I know that times are tough and money is tight right now...it's OK if you can't donate...but can you pass Tobee's story to people you know?

however, after a while it will start putting strain on it. I also ask where we stand on Tobee and the doctor said lets just try and wait one or two weeks but then we will have to make a decision. Everytime I think of having to do that, I just loose it. I know that I am not the only one who has had to make this decision, but I'm just not ready to let Tobee go yet. I have to call at 5:00 today to see if I can bring him home. This is breaking my heart!!!! Tobee cries going to the vet like I know other pets do also, but now it affects me more because I know he is in pain. Thanks IMOM Angels, I don't know what I would do if it wasn't for the comments that have been made by all of you. Judy we have one of the plastic cones at home. When I pick Tobee up, I will ask about using it. Midge & Sam

Tobee still needs $646.
IMOM is issuing a Matching Challenge to reach his goal. We have set aside half - $323 - from the General Fund to match all donations until that $646 is raised.
Please continue to spread the word everywhere. Re-post to family & friends, message boards, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Everywhere you can think of.
Here is the link back here to Tobee's page:
