She was not totally paralyzed. Sniper could walk and followed me all around the airport. It's just that when she'd come to a stop her rear end would often not get the message and it would go wide. But she was in enough good spirits to enjoy piddling on my foot when I wasn't looking.
Steve and his friend Patrick, picked Sniper up on Orlando, Florida and flew her to Newport News, Virginia where she was going to get an MRI and other medical attention to see if her spinal problem could be repaired.
Following an examination by the specialized vet, it was felt that with some physical therapy and other non-surgical care she would be able to heal and get to work in the future helping a military veteran in need.
It was a long and hot flight from Orlando to Newport News. It took about 4.5 hours and by the time we arrived we were sad to hand Sniper off but looked forward to the hour flight home and catching up on loads of sleep.
Steve still thinks often about little Sniper and misses her terribly.
