The pup rescued by Lodi police officers in March and adopted by a former News-Sentinel reporter loses her hind leg
Fiona’s still fighting — on three legs
Fiona licks the face of her owner, former News-Sentinel reporter Katie Nelson, on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2012. It was the first time they had seen each other since Fiona had her leg amputated on Monday. Nelson and News-Sentinel photo chief Dan Evans adopted Fiona after she was struck by a car and rescued by Lodi police on St. Patrick’s Day.

Fiona has always been a fighter, ever since she was struck by a car this past St. Patrick’s Day. She bounced back, and had lived heroically with her bum leg, which suffered severe nerve damage from the accident.
But even though we knew that one day she may lose it, we were not entirely prepared when Ruth Smith, Fiona’s veterinarian, sat us down Sept. 18 and told us it was time.
