Too many hugs are needed aka Dogs on Thursday
Wow, it seems that my last few days of blog reading (catching up) has produced a rather large list of friends in need of hugs…. Murphy and I would like you to please take the time to visit the following people and offer words of support for them as they deal with the sickness or loss of a beloved furry family member…
Alice, was in my cocoa swap. I still read so many of the blogs from that swap. Her dear Alex was attacked by a neighborhood dog on a ‘quick’ walk this past weekend. Alex was transferred from the emergency vet to her local vet yesterday and is expected home today. Poor sweet baby, I do hope he’ll heal quickly, and that her meeting with the neighbor will go well.
Mary, had to say goodbye to Storm, and her sweet Kitty Electra at the same time. It was hard enough to let go of Chewy this past fall but to have had to do two pets at once, I can’t even fathom. Please stop and leave a kind note at her blog… I know she’s trying to be strong but we all need hugs during times like these.
Cindy and Elizabeth, are also from my cocoa swap. They are dear Mainers with a love of running, homeschooling, and their beloved Golden’s… Mary was a world traveler and sweet running partner to Cindy for years. Besides our love of running and knitting, Cindy and I really connected through Murphy’s recent incident with his seizure and resulting vertigo symptoms… Cindy’s dog Mary had been through a similar incident a few years ago, and she was a tremendous support with plenty of words of wisdom from her experience, and I’m just so saddened that she has lost her beloved Mary. Elizabeth, Cindy’s daughter, is also struggling with the goodbye. Please stop and visit their blogs with your kindness!
My friend Jen, who is blogless at the moment? I think? Has said her goodbyes to Gizmo. She’s really struggling with this and I know she will be ok, but is taking the time she needs right now for her grief.
In my life… I’m zonked… I had a bizzaro allergic reaction to something in my eye last night, causing it to swell a LOT and I woke in the middle of the night with what I think is an ear infection! I’m not sure if the two are related but this morning my eye is still swollen, and I sit here waiting for the doctors office to open so I can get my ear checked… Ummm… aren’t ear infections something CHILDREN get??? at 37 I hardly consider myself a child.. though I can be childish at times.. 😉 For the moment my breakfast has consisted of decongestant, antihistimines, and lots of ibuprofen!
Come on people… I just want to get a decent nights sleep!
That Lunestra commerical is constantly at the front of my mind these past two weeks…
