Our Prayer

Lord God, you are the Creator of all living things. We know that you care for each and every precious life. Please watch over all those whom we love and care for. We pray for healing and relief to all pets who suffer from illness or poor living conditions. We also pray for those humans we have come to know through our associations in Blogville. Give them strength when they are weary, health when they are ill, and hope when they feel hopeless. And we especially pray for those furiends and friends we have listed here.

My friend Jack.....

My friend Jack has been MIA from blogging for some time.
Jack had been fighting a battle with lymphoma
since September.  TG has been taking him to Nashville, TN to a special oncology vet.
Jack responded well to treatment for several months and was not going to the vet as much.
Just in the last few weeks he started limping, he became very restless and was rushed to the ER Vet Sunday.  Without a lot of invasive procedures it was suspected lymphoma had
moved to his bone marrow.

Today Tall Guy helped  Jack over the bridge.

Jack was my very first blogging friend way back in 2009, I will miss him.  
He and TG helped us learn lots of stuff and made us laugh.
Jack until we meet again run free, eat lots of cookies and panny cakes.
Your bfff Madi
