Got a second?

I feel sheepish posting, as I haven't been around much, and then I show up, asking favors... I chose You All, because there is always such love here, such amazing support, and I know some of you will understand what it is to love an animal

My dog is undergoing some surgery today - she's been ill for a month, and we've been scratching our heads over what could be causing her distress. (We've narrowed it down to Aspergillus... or cancer.)

We've got CT scans and a rhinoscpoy scheduled for today and I hope this brings us to a manageable conclusion... I can't stand hearing her having trouble breathing, blood coming from her nose, horrible noises... it just wrenches my heart. (I can't imagine if it were a child!) She's too darn young and has too great a spirit - her work here is not finished!

SO if you don't mind me asking, if you got a minute, say a prayer for my best Girl Charlie (remember the perfume from the 70's?) One of the best dogs - a furry angel/devil who has stolen my heart...

PS - if any of you are curious: my Charlie is a COVER GIRL! My friend has a great site (dogexplorer.com) and he has put my girl on the "cover" of the site...

Thanks for letting me post! Good health and blessings to You All....

Sara, Charlie Beanie-Bean, Tessa Magoo McSmushypants, Opal June the pocket pup, and Little Man Firecracker AKA The Fuzzy Bunch

I hope she pulls through OK, clanger. They can do some amazing stuff with cancer in dogs now.

Charlie has my prayers. I know how difficult it is , and nerve wracking. Our furbabies are members of the family.

Unbelievable - you guys just blow me away... Thank you SO much! The hardest part (today) is not being able to FEED her! LOL (a good sign is that she has her appetite...)

laughter and tears... it's all in the mix!!!
