My beloved Kona was attacked by something (vet thinks a cat or snake) we will never know as Kona is not Barking. On Friday Nov 1st it did not seem that bad at first just looked like a bug bite. However Saturday she seemed ok little more swollen. But I was wrong at 1 Am, Sunday She started screaming in pain so when I looked at her she had blood coming out of her eye and. So I rush her to Southern AZ Veterinary specialty center in Tucson, AZ .When the DR on duty looked at her eye said the eye specialist was coming 6 Am to do the surgery. From what they could see it looked a ruptured cornea. So at 6 Am they called to say that Dr Reuben Merideth was in and would call me in two hrs when surgery was done. However it was 4 hr later when he called and said it was really big and bad surgery. She had 2 tears and one of the lacerations went across the whole eye and her iris was coming out.So she stayed over night. I picked her up around 11 PM as I wanted her to get as much care as she could before I brought her home. We went to her next appointment two for a check up. The Dr was amazed how good it looked after just two days. Kona goes in this Thursday for recheck to see if she has her sight back. So far the bill $3000.00 I am trying to raise money to pay for the surgery as I am unemployed at this time. And for those of you that do not know Kona, she was the Pit Bull that changed my mind about Pities, Kona was rescued from Pima Animal Care Center by Smiling Dog Rescue 5 yrs ago with her 5 puppies. I told Rica if they ever get rid of her I wanted her and that was 4 yrs ago and Kona is the love of my life she is my ROCK. Kona's new nick name is Konalisa. So keep your eyes open for her FaceBook page

Thank you all so much Connie and Kona
