Three Little Pugs - Deb

Please remember Deb in your thoughts and prayers.  She and her family have been through alot this past year.  Deb has been away from Blogville lately because she took on a second job.  And now fate has taken another slug at her . . . she has pneumonia!  For anyone who has ever had pneumonia, you know how it can quickly knock you down!

Deb is not used to putting herself first and I would be willing to bet she is not doing everything she must do to combat this dangerous illness.  Please pray for her wellness as well as that she follows doctors orders!

Lady Shasta's Mom Kim - Update 12/26/16

Newest Update as of 12-23-16 early morning:  Kim is in pre-op.  They should be taking her to surgery in about 30  minutes.  After she's done they will take her to ICU.  We appreciate all  the good thoughts and prayers.

UPDATE as of 12-20-16:  Kim found out today she can receive emails through the hospital website  Go to patient services, email, and type her name in the 'name box, Kimberly Brooks, type her room number, 782 in the 'room number' box, and then type your message.  Patient services will print the emails and deliver them to Kim.   

She does need the aortic valve replaced and should know more tomorrow.  The heart cath showed the arteries are good, no blockages.  They got her up today to do a little walking and she's had phone calls from  our pastor and a friend, so her spirits are up a little.  She just wants  things to get done so she can get home with Shasta and get on with life.  

She and I thank you for all the prayers, kind and encouraging words, and potp.


We received a message from Kim that she is in Stormont-Vail Hospital in Topeka, Ks.  She's going to have a heart catherization tomorrow and depending on the results will have surgery to replace a heart valve.    She's not able to check email at this time.

Leave any messages on her Facebook page and her sister will show or read them to her.

Also, Agnes with Doxies with Moxie knows what's going on.

She thanks everyone in advance for prayers.


Our pal Lassie is not feeling well and his hoomans are asking for POTP!  They said:

Lassie is not feeling well.  Vomiting.  Elevated ALT and bilirubin.

Bhu has crossed the Bridge..

We have just heard from Ann at Zoolatry that BHU crossed over to the Bridge today at age 19.  Bhu fought very hard to stay with us.  Ann has know Bhu and family for 10 years.  She asked if we could please write a post to let you know of his passing.
Mom and I are sorry to say we did not know him; however, we do know cats.
We'll pay tribute to his constant supervision of all things in the house.
To those who do not know the feline nature.  Trust us when we say
they love in their own way. First and  foremost with the slow blink of their eyes
they say, "I love you and I trust you".  Their gentle purrs comfort their family.
They are the ultimate 'biscuit' maker slow but surely kneading on your lap because they find
comfort doing that BUT only to those they love.
So Dear lived and loved for 19 years and taught many lessons.
Run free sweet friend, may sun always warm your furs and butter flies tickle your nose.
Many are waiting to give you gentle hugs over the rainbow bridge.

  You can visit our dear BHU here.

Zoolatry this is a beautiful button...

Bluest eyes
Handsome furry friend
Unconditional love to your family

Dear friends today Sammy, ONE LOVED AND SPOILED CAT
will be visiting many of you in his hot air balloon.  After months 
and months of struggling with declining health, our handsome Patriarch Sam, 
King of Baconia will land his hot air balloon at the Rainbow Bridge.

take this journey with Sam

Ann from Zoolatry wrote this beautiful prayer for Sam

Now I lay me down to sleep,
angels near to guide my feet.
I'm not afraid, I do not fear,
my life's been good while I was here.
It is time to leave, to cross my bridge,
to reach toward my rainbow ...
When I come to heaven's door,
I'll see the friends smiling who went before.
Waiting to welcome me home again.
Where I began, where I now end.

So I will now leave, I will cross my bridge,
yes ~ I see my rainbow ...

medication. His peeps and siblings are very worried. Please send them some POTP.  You can find them HERE.

Easy & Update

Ann from Zoolarty just sent this handsome photo of EASY for us to post
We are very very very thankful to hear that Easy's tummy did not twist.  He is
still at the vet and may possibly come home later today...they will see 
how the rest of the day goes

Easy is at ER with bloat  -  pray hard!


3 Hours Ago Katty wrote:  your prayers and potp helped... if everything looks good we can pick him up in the evening. he is not out of the woods and we have to talk with the vet about a final solution. but the main thing is that he is still with us and we have a chance to find the best way for the pup.many thanks for being on our side, it's the worst to be alone ...and to know you have friends who are with you is the helping hand we need in such sad moments...

Prior Update:  we are just back from er. the vet sent us home. he will place a tube now and then he will do surgery. it's a wrestle for life and death this time and we are devastated.

it happened at 4 am that he tried to puke, but it didn't work, then suddenly he looked totally bloated and screamed with pains.

we acted immediately and there was not even an hour between the start of the attack and our arrival at the vet, we hope so much that we were fast enough and the vet can rescue him...

thanks for the prayers and the potp, together we are strong

We received a message:

POTP for Sammy One LOVED Cat

Sammy from ONE spoiled LOVED Cat my friend is not feeling well at all.
Sammy's blog is titled One Spoiled Cat but we are sure spoiled means LOVED in
Ginger man speak!!
He has been struggling with the effects of aging for sometime now.
Sammy and his loving peeps are asking for as many purrs and prayers
as we can offer up today on Thanksgiving.  You may *click here to read Sammy's beautiful Thoroughly Poetic Thursday Thanksgiving Poem today.
Sammy is host to Thoroughly Poetic Thursday.
Sammy would love to hear from you so if you can leave him a comment full of purrs here or on his blog link above*
Sammy is the most handsome, bravest, polydacytal Ginger man.
Sammy's 17th birthday is in January 2017.
 Below is a paragraph his mom wrote today telling us more about Sammy's current condition.

I feel that I must say a little something to everyone about Sammy although it’s not easy to do……..because of course our beloved pets MUST live forever right?   They must – they are such a huge part of our lives and hearts.  Well Sammy is just tired and his body is failing him and there is little that can be done.   I have NOT wanted to talk about it – because it’s difficult – very difficult.   He spent a day and a half in the hospital having constant IV drip with a variety of treatments all designed to do what we hope is NOT impossible – give him just a little more time…………Sammy has loved Christmas since he was tiny.   He loves lying under the tree and watching my husband’s train go round and round…….he loves present boxes…….he loves just being WITH us when we unwrap our presents and when he gets to look in his stocking to see what Santa Paws has brought.   SO our wonderful vet is trying to give Sammy a “rally” – – – a boost so that he will be able to enjoy one last Christmas with us.    We are NOT doing any “heroics” for him……I honestly feel he wouldn’t want us to.   He’s had a wonderful and long happy life and he deserves to have a good long rest.   He will always be in my heart and I think in many of your hearts too………..I’ve LOVED sharing him with you and right now, it’s my intention to continue – after all, Angels DO blog you know!
Don’t be sad…………..just sent us all your purrs and prayers and ENERGY so Sam will hang in there – I’ll keep you posted on the blog…………no long drawn out medical reports but just to let you know how the “rally” is working.

Shiver Update

This morning we rec'd the below update on Shiver and a thank you.

Monday, November 14, 2016


I am posting from my phone as POTP needed right away!
Shiver desperately needs POTP please!  I noticed last week that he 
sometimes breathed heavier than usual so I made an appointment with the vet 
for Monday, November 14th.  Saturday, November 12th I had just come home 
from a fun afternoon.  I was gathering laundry when I suddenly heard a 
small thud.  I went into the bedroom to find Shiver having some kind of 
seizure or something.  His legs were stiff, his head was off to one side at 
an odd angle and it was clear he wasn't fully alert.  We rushed to the vet 
and after several tests, we still have no real answers.  It could be his 
heart murmur or it could be something else.
He's home now and his breathing is much better.  He's alert but he can't 
stand or walk.  He falls to one side whenever he tries.  We go back to the 
vet for a check up Monday morning and I'm praying for a miracle.  I'm not 
ready to have to put him down.  Please pray for my boy.  I love him so much!

Sully needs POTP

We received an email today from Sully's Mom

 I took Sully to the vet yesterday day morning because he wasn't eating but drinking lots of water and peeing a lot. The vet ran some tests and something is going on with his liver. The vet called me this morning and said he wanted to keep him over the weekend and do more tests.
 Sully could sure use some prayers for healing. 
Thank you,

Please keep Sully in your thoughts and prayers
you can visit him 
to leave some POTP for Sully 
and we are sure his worried mom could use some hugs

URGENT POTP for Macey The 3 little pugs human girl

Dear Friends I just rec'd the below from Deb.  Her sweet little granddaughter is very sick.
Sweet Macey has strugged for some time with her leg BUT she has always had a Smile.


Please put up a request on the potp for me about our granddaughter Macey.  I know everyone knows her on the blog because of the process of us finding out about her lymphedema etc.  Well this morning she woke up with 104 temp and crying that her leg felt like something was twisting it tight.  Her dad took her to the doc, early this morning and after two rounds of blood test, and ultrasound, thankfully they ruled out a blood clot but she does have cellulitis.   They are marking it today, and giving her a Rocephin shot and antibiotics to take home.  Her blood count is 17,000 which is out of the normal range of 4000 to 11000.  We are hoping and praying that it does not move further up her leg.  Her temp is still at 104, but again the meds and shots should start to take it down.  If not, she will need to go into the hospital which is scary for a 9 year old girl.   I would appreciate it if you would share this news, and her needing any prayers anyone may have to share.
Thank you

POTP for Phod and Hailey's human Gpa aka Big Guy

Mom copied this right from their post today:

Life has been a bit sucky in our part of the world. See our Big Guy (aka the Lady's Dad) survived an aneurysm on Halloween. He remains in ICU and is doing "ok" - the medical team is happy with the progress. He will likely be there for weeks. Lady is still at home with us, but will go down to see him in a week or two. No one wants her there too early as a nurse or caring and sympathetic person she is not.

The Big Guy and Grammie's dog Tendra is staying with wonderful family friends. She is probably being completely spoiled! Grammie and the Big Guy don't have to worry about her.

Needless to say, this news has shaken our house up a bit. Lady hasn't been as good at visiting blogs because at times she has been a space cadet she  has been thinking about other things and doing other things. We know you will understand and forgive her. 

If you have a little POTP to send the Big Guy, we would really appreciate it.
