Deeds and Magpie in the News

Jeremy was walking out to the car with the kids tonight when Deeds took a tumble and fell face first on the driveway.  When he got inside to me he was covered in blood and after cleaning off most of his face I realized the front four teeth were shoved up into his gums so it looked like he was teething.  He was screaming and bleeding so badly we took him right into the ER.  Now I know that the ER really can’t do anything about teeth.  They told us to follow-up with a pediatric dentist tomorrow to make sure he didn’t damage the adult teeth since the baby ones went so far up.  They also told us that they would probably just “drop back down.”

Magpie was FANTASTIC at the ER.  Deeds was so calm and she just laid down on the bed with him and he calmed right down.  Made this mommy a happy camper that she was able to make him comfortable.

We missed the first part of the news story on TV but we had set it to record so we caught it after all the commotion and then watched the second segment.  We can’t embed the video’s on this blog but here are the links for those of you that might have missed it, or the many of you that are out-of-state.

Thank you all again.  I’m so glad you get to see Magpie in action.  So many of you have been with us since day one a year ago and helped us every step of the way.  We feel like you are all family and we are eternally grateful for your love.

  1. I cried through the whole thing. I love you guys even if I don’t see you much. I’m so glad Fox did this story, wish I could see where to comment there!
    That sucks about his teeth!! Hoping the damage isn’t severe. Keep us posted.

  2. Steffan and I sat and watched the feature together last night. I met you via Twitter sometime around when the path to Magpie began, and he’s heard about you guys along the way. Tears were shed, hugs were shared, and I’ll leave it at that, for now.

    I will keep Deeds’ teeth as one more prayer in my thoughts, though. Poor kiddo. I hope they come back down soon, and there’s no damage to the permanent teeth.

  3. Thanks for sharing these links. I am out of state so otherwise would not have been able to see them. It is remarkable the positive power these dogs can offer. Very happy for your family!
