With a heavy heart I learnt that Mr.Bailey of Idaho Pug Ranch crossed the rainbow bridge...

There is sacredness in tears.They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love.

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

We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

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.
