Miniel Update

Miniel is still here with us. She wasn't doing well at all last week, and we talked about putting her down.
I stopped her Dexamethasone last week. Her appetite has improved. We have been doing passive range of motion on her legs. Her neck is weak so she finds it difficult to hold her head up. I know this sounds nuts, but I sing to her everyday to keep her spirits up.......of course, that may be agitating her, also! We put a diaper on her and bring her in at night to watch football , but her favorite is SpongeBob  SquarePants. She bleats for tortilla chips, snack crackers, and popcorn, but she isn't spoiled!


  1. You are doing such a wonderful thing.Most people think sheep are just farm animals and they need to go into the freezer, but sheep are wonderful animals with great personalities.Very easy to fall in love with. I lost a sheep and an angora goat this past year and most recently my favorite ewe to a dog attack.It's hard not to sit and cry when you loose one of your pets.With all your love and great care she WILL make it.

  2. Thank you!
    I'm rather in awe of this sheep and her determination to make it. She's a very sweet sheep!
