SiDa isn't eating much but at least she's drinking. To prevent her from straining her back by moving about, we placed her into a giant carrier. She sometimes tries to sit up for a few seconds but flops back down shortly since she’s still pretty weak. She cried in pain on the first day post-surgery but we're glad she seems more comfortable now.

As she can't reach her water bowl, our volunteers have been on shift duties from 9am to 10pm daily since the surgery last Friday, to feed her water and food. Our volunteers have committed themselves to accompany SiDa, pat her, talk to her, and making sure she is not alone and is recuperating well from the surgery.
Watch how her HOPE "maids" care for her
Through these few days, we have witnessed how strong SiDa was and we're amazed at how tough these dogs are and their tolerance for pain. Their strong spirits touch us. We have so much to learn from these beautiful animals.

We will still fetch her best friend, factory worker Yongyurt, to visit her every Sunday, so that they don't miss each other too much. We are hopeful for her recovery.
Thank you so much everyone, for your help towards SiDa. We are most grateful and touched by your kindness and generosity. Please continue to keep SiDa in your prayers.
