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.

Casey the Boxer needs some POTP

Hey folks. Remember I told you a few months back that my big ol' heart is just so full of love that it skips beats sometimes? I've been on medicine to control it, but I had a follow-up test this week and I'm back to skipping some beats again. Now I have to take meds THREE times a day, blech. I'm getting another test in a month to see if it's working or if we need to try some different meds. I'd appreciate some POTP to make sure it works. You know I feel fine, but Mommas get worried, that's all. You may leave healing comment and good wishes here or click here to go to Casey's blog

Madi: Wednesday, 8/9/17 UPDATE

August 9, 2017
Madi update 

Madi did not eat much at all today.
I bought several new foods and even browned her some lean hamburger.
Her vet was off on today but the assistant on the phone.  She told me the vet on call might recommend an appetite stimulant
and science diet formula for digestive tract issues.
I picked up both.  Got the pill in her at about 4 and was told it would take ~24 hours to work.  When we were cooking supper, at about 5pm,  her Dad asked if I thought Madi would eat if she had ham mixed in her cat food.  We mixed in some ham and turkey. She had to lick the cat food off to get to the deli meat.
This was the most she had eaten all day and this was well before the
appetite stimulant should have started working.
10 points for Dad.

We will see her vet tomorrow at 3:30.

Madi Mom here:
Madi had a good sleep last night, no tummy distress.
We are giving her small meals several times a day.
This morning she has had 2 servings of fishy goodness.
I have 3 kinds of kibble here that she likes or has liked.
She has a kibble buffet fit for a Diva.
She has sampled all of them this morning.
We will continue with the Cerenia and call her vet back 
on Thursday with an update.  
Thank you so very much for all your meows, barks and prayers
Madi and Mom

We are asking for your thoughts and prayers for our own dear Madi.

 Our First Feline Mayoress of Blogville is having several health concerns, likely due to or complicated by, age.  Although she can still twerk with the best of them, her body is just not cooperating.  Most concerning is the rate at which she is losing weight (from 9 pounds to 6.5 pounds).

We're hopeful that her vet can get her through this and back to good health.  In the meantime, please send POTP for Madi, her mom and dad, and for her vet to make the best decisions for the course of her treatment.

Please go to Madi's blog for more information.

UPDATE: POTP for Dad of Raz and Allie

We thank Angel Sammy and Teddy's mom for sending this update last night.

 Bill is comfy in his room - just had dinner - when shift changes Sharon is going to go home.   They did a CT Scan and there is no blood clot - they think maybe the lung collapse was due to something I've never heard of - a "lung bleb" - which could be related to his having smoked years ago.    At any rate they don't think it has a thing to do with his cancer or his new medication for the cancer - so that's good news.   They say he probably can go home Tuesday.

Powerful POTP for Cat Daddy Bill

Angel Sammy and Teddy's mom sent me this message below.

Knew you'd want to know - Raz and Allie's Dad, Bill is in the hospital - he and Mom Sharon were at Lowe's and he got short of breath..............they went to the E.R. and they found out he has a collapsed right lung (!) - they have inserted a tube and he's been admitted.
They sure do need our prayers. Bill started new cancer meds this week and they lost dear sweet Ellie. Sure do have a lot on their plates.

POTP for Bilbo and his Pack

We received an email from Mama Beth that we have copied in part below: 

Bilbo has taken a turn for the worse. His he is drinking full bowls of water and having problems holding his bladder. We talked to the vet yesterday and she confirmed our thoughts that his kidneys are failing. (He has had kidney problems for the past year or so). Unless he tells us before, we have an appointment with his vet to help him cross the Bridge on Wednesday evening at 6pm PST.

We wanted a doctor we knew to help and we are glad we have a couple of days to spoil him with pumpkin crunchies and as many snuggles as he will let us give him.
Mama Beth requests some POTP for Bilbo, Ed and I(and the Boyz) on the POTP. 
Going from a pack of four to a pack of two in a couple of months is going to be rough. 
Mama Beth wrote, It’s an end of an era saying goodbye to Dory and Bilbo, our first two babies, so close together…

Dory and Bilbo were two of our very first blogging friends way back in 2009!!

Beautiful soul
Loving family
Boy did he love pumpkin crunchies
Oh so very much to be missed by all

Piper POTP please

Urgent POTP for Piper

When I woke up this morning I had this text from Piper’s Mom:
Piper’s been off today. Too much to type but just wanted to let you know we may not make it through the night. But who knows, he may be himself again tomorrow.
This morning she wrote:
Still here. Keeps pulling his head to the right. Like a nervous tick. Drinking tons. At one point last night he started twitching when I was trying to trim him some with just scissors. I cut his neck. 😦 He didn’t flinch. (My Note: Normally Piper would have been screaming at Mach 1 that his life was surely over if he got hurt.)
And a bit later:
He’s still holding steady. Still wanting food and treats. (My Note: Yes, he is definitely a schnauzer.)

Please pray and give Piper your POTP. He is my Super Schnauzer Nephew.

Please go over to Angel Lexi's blog and give POTP for Piper who is not doing well at all.

POTP is requested for Snoopy.  His mom (Agnes Bullock) writes:

My beloved Snoopy somehow hurt his right front leg or shoulder Friday and Saturday we had to rush him to the vet. X-rays showed no break so he came home with Rimadyl and I could give him tramadol for pain.

Yesterday he refused to eat his breakfast but he was very active- no pain etc.  Gave him his rimadyl at 4 pm and that was it- he threw up two or three hours later and had six major bouts of the runs.  I was up all night keeping him clean and washing towels. He was embarrassed- he would let me know he had to go then the runs immediately started. And to top that off he was in agony- couldn't even pick him up without his screeching in pain.

He and I stayed up since 4 this morning and he finally slept for a couple of hours. Took him to the vet and blood work is being run. No idea what this is.  Their blog is HERE.

POTP for Mr. Bailey of Idaho Pugs....

Dear Sweet Mr. Bailey's mobility is not good at all.
His mom writes below.

We would also like to ask 
for some good thoughts for Mr Bailey

He needs a lot of help these days
 as his back end is getting very weak

It makes Mom and Dad sad to see him struggle
and sometimes Mom cries when she thinks 
that he may not be with us much longer

So if you could keep our old boy in your thoughts
 that would be great

Sweet William The Scot

Lee writes:  Wills has developed a spot on his chest about a nickel size, that at this  time is believed to be Vitiligo where he has lost all  pigment in his  skin.  This can be very mild to severe even involving his internal  organs.   A skin scraping test is necessary along with a series of tests.  

We have an appointment with a specialist on June 14th.  So I am asking for  
POTP.  Wills is my only family.

Please send your POTP to Sweet William and Lee.  Find them HERE.

We only have one left now of the Fabulous Five we rescued many years ago. We will always miss Pepi and the others, Sanjee, Mini and Gree.” Fly free, Pepi.

Cheysuli has gone OTRB

"A dash of nutty-ness, a spoonfull of bravado, two cups of ego. Mix well, and top with fur." That's Chey, a cat blogging icon for more years than most of us can remember. From coast to coast she posted ... and we often wondered "where in the world is Chey"

Witty and charming, she ruled the world, now surely she will rule above. Please visit and leave words of comfort for the family who had to say farewell. Thank you.

POTP for Jessie the Boxer Girl

Casey and his Momma would like to ask for our POTP for Jessie.  
Jessie is a fun loving girl and had such fun at our Park event she was 
Dreaming of being Mary Poppins...look at that smile

This is from Jessie's Momma
We'd also like to ask for a little Power of the Paw. I went to the dogtor this week to have more blood stolen so we could see how my camel treatments are working. Momma was a little concerned because they don't seem to be making me feel any better, and I actually lose my appetite for a day or two after the treatments. Unfortunately, the blood tests don't show much of an improvement, and the dogtor isn't really sure what to do. So we're going to go back to visit the specialist who diagnosed me in the furst place to get another view of how my kidneys are working and see if he has any more suggestions. If you could keep your paws crossed for me, Momma and I would appreciate it.

POTP for Flynn

Mom wrote to Flynn's Mom, Ms. Jackie, to check on how she was doing.
She goes back for a CT scan on 4/28 to see if the medication is shrinking her tumors.  
She also wrote the below about Flynn.

We have just got back from the vet. Luckily Dr. Mark was on call so we were able to see him out of hours. Flynn has gone downhill a lot the past week and we have about come to the end of what we can do for him. Mark gave him a Rimadyl injection which is a painkiller to see if it will help him. He is hardly eating anything and has lost one pound in the last 7 days. .
If the Rimadyl works and he seems more comfortable in the next 24 hours we can continue to give it in pill form. We really thought he would be joining Eric today, but Mark has given us hope that he can stay with us for a while yet. The next 48 hours will tell so please keep him in your thoughts.

Flynn just turned 17 on 4/8....we all know he is a fighter.
Please send some prayers and hugs to his peeps and to him by clicking here

To Dory and her Family with love....

Always and forever remember.....

The below is from Dory's Mama Saturday morning April 8th:

We wanted to let you know Dory has been going downhill for the past 2 days. We took her to the vet on Thursday where they aspirated almost a liter of liquid from her abdomen and gave us new heart meds. She hadn’t been eating well when we took her, and the vet thought she would get her back to eating after draining the liquid from her tummy. To our dismay, with the exception of a few bites of chicken on Friday morning, she isn’t interested in food at all. Not even Zukes or Greenies. We even tried an appetite simulator yesterday afternoon with no results.  

Late Saturday afternoon Beth emailed me that it was clear that Dory had tried her best but she was too tired to fight any more.  Saturday night they spent the evening  surrounding Dory with LOVE.

Today April 9, at 9:30 am PST, Ed and I will be with Dory to help her make her journey across the Rainbow Bridge.

today at 12 pm Central time 1 pm EST.....

Hugs Madi your bfff  and Cecilia your God-mommy

Jessie has her special medical treatment tomorrow!!

purrs, howls from you all tomorrow.

Recently Jessie's momma took her to the dogtor to test her bloods and pee to see how her kidneys are doing. Unfortunately, her levels are starting to creep up again, to the point that Jessie isn't feeling as hungry and is kinda tired. It makes me and Momma sad, but we keep up a brave face for Jessie. She's just a kid, she doesn't understand. She's going to start having a treatment where the dogtor puts water UNDER her skin to help her get hydrated a little easier. We're hoping that will help her out. Please cross your paws for her!  Jessie will have her treatment tomorrow...please send her some
POTP that this does the trick!!
