JOEY needs our prayers...

GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!


Dear friends,

Life is so fragile and so precious.  One of the biggest lessons of life
- taught to me by my Angel MAXDOG  - is...

"LIVE IN THE MOMENT"

When worry and fear take over, it is wise to reap each moment and each millisecond for everything that it is worth.  When one doesn't know which way to turn, it is wise simply to take on the mantle of:
"Seize the Day...or Carpe Diem"

 
Well, today I am asking you, my special readers to seize the moment and to pop by a very special friend's blog

Val and her two special Golden Retrievers, Joey and Kealani, have been my blogging friends buddies for nearly three years.  Amongst other bloggers, Val became such a support to me during my Maxdog's "Days of Grace", when I learned to take every moment with my special dog and to 'LIVE IT TO THE MAX'. 

Uncannily, Val and I have shared some simple, but very similar moments.
For example:

This is my own picture of MAXDOG when he was so ill during his
"Days of Grae":

...and this is Val's picture, this week with JOEY...


Well, Val's JOEY is very ill at the moment and understandably, she is terrified. 
JOEY hasn't been eating well and has lost a significant amount of weight in the past three weeks.  His liver enzymes are far from normal and he is vomiting up his food.  As we speak, he is at the Vet hoping to find the cause of his condition.

PLEASE...

would you pop by Val's blog and offer her some support.  I know how much it means to get comments on your blog at times when you feel so alone.
Please would you also say a special prayer for JOEY
This special doggie is only four years old...far too young to be fighting such a fight!

my own thoughts and prayers are with you today. 
Often our fears are the worst element of any fight...
Hang in there, special buddies!
We love you,
Sending lotsaluv
