Kathryn, a vet technician, first saw baby Sally while she was in critical condition. The dog was handed to her by a breeder who was no longer able to care for her. Sally had pneumonia and was having trouble breathing; the vet technician characterized her as “blue.”
Fortunately, Kathryn had set up an oxygen container, or “bubble,” in which Sally could get all of the oxygen she needed. She recognized as soon as she placed the pup inside the bubble that Sally was oxygen dependent and would need to be in there for a long time. Needless to say, the poor little dog had respiratory problems and needed her lungs to be reinforced.
For numerous days to weeks, Kathryn cared for Sally both inside and outside of her oxygen chamber. Unfortunately, the struggling dog couldn’t escape her bubble since she would gasp for air after just a few seconds.
Sally demonstrated a wish to be a regular dog despite her disability. She would constantly make signals to her carers, like as kissing the wall of her bubble and peering outside. The dog wanted to play and live her life normally, but her body refused to cooperate.
Kathryn didn’t give up on the rowdy puppy.
They would generally transport Sally and her bubble with them throughout the pup’s healing and strengthening phase so she could see things other than the four walls of her oxygen chamber. It was regularly like this until the pup started pawing at the bubble, plainly trying to leave.
Outside of her bubble, she only had around 15 seconds to live.
Sally’s respiratory problem didn’t stop her from wanting to escape her cocoon and explore the outside world. Kathryn decided to make the demanding pup’s short visits outside the bubble a routine; it’s also an excellent way for the dog’s lungs to get some exercise. So, over the following several days, they’d take Sally on small trips outside her bubble.
For weeks, Kathryn would stretch the intervals between Sally’s oxygen assistance. Without oxygen, from 15 seconds to 3 minutes.
That was the improvement they saw as a consequence of their regular exercise. It considerably improved Sally’s breathing. Kathryn had a great method to make her bubble considerably bigger so that she could move about rather than just lie down as she grew.
They decided to take Sally outdoors one day. She was actually OUT there, being touched by the sun and playing on the grass. Her lungs weren’t strong enough to be out for that long, so they returned her to her bubble. They even let Sally freely enter and leave her bubble since she’s improved so well since being locked within her small surroundings on day one.
Then another day came and Sally realized she didn’t want to stay in her bubble any longer.
Sally was OK, but Kathryn elected to put her back within the bubble for her own protection. Sally managed to slip out before she could even close the oxygen chamber’s door. She made it clear that day that she no longer wanted to be there.
When the puppy was given the all-clear, one of Kathryn’s colleagues, Bonnie, stepped in to adopt her, and she was also there throughout Sally’s healing process. She was soon accepted by her new family and dog siblings.
Sally had her first stroll in the park, went to the pool, picked her first toy, and much more. She’s no longer that sick little dog, and she’s now enjoying her existence in the real world.
