This is from my friend Meatballs Diary.. please go and read more in his Diary section. Please crosspost... but NOT in the forums until HQ give permission... Groups and Diaries have their permission at this point.

Meatball.. AKA Meaty

Thanks to Baxter,MaKenzie and their Momma we now have a BEAUTIFUL website to help raise funds for Meatballs CANCER surgery and after care.
We are just waiting on Dogster HQ for permission to post its link in forums so for now we are restricted to posting in groups and diaries.
Please fel free to crosspost this link :

Meatball 's Website


We need donations of goods for auction. All the information to effect a donation is on the site. You can even subscribe to follow progress ! The site has literally just gone up and we already have 4 donors ! How fantastic are Dogsters ?!

Baxter & MacKenzie are 100% in control of this site and monies received. They have even graciously offered to transfer proceeds directly to Meatys Drs as needed so that we can focus on Meaty.

We have so much to be thankful for ...... cancer be damned!

As for Meaty --- I am obsessing. He is experiencing his 3rd bad day in a row. He is a trooper though and is trying to play and please.
I will admit that with every thing he walks into I can hear the specialist sayin *watch his eyesight ---- it could signify that he is worsening and its starting to terrify me.. He has hit 2 things in the last 2 days ........ and he has been in this same home his entire 7 years.

I cannot let him pick up on my worry ..... easier said than done!

Not to rudely cut this short but Meaty is feeling particularily needy right now and I am off to lay some love on him {as he rakes his nails down my leg!} LOL

Please visit,crosspost, get people talking. Anything you can do as pals would be greatly appreciated.

We promise to catch up on p-mails and Rosettes tomorrow afternoon.

In the meantime know that we love you back and appreciate all the sentiments we are receiving.

XoXo

Kat,Meaty & Family

 

URGENT...please do what you can for Meatball...Things Needed- for His Auction!

Meatball is a wonderful Boxer who lives in Buffalo, NY. The vets have just found a cancerous tumor on Meatball's face which, if caught in time, could save his life by being removed. However, the surgery needed is not within the family's economic capability.

To help this precious pup & his family, a website has been created where you can either donate monitarily or offer something you have for auction (all funds will go directly to Meatball's medical costs).

We're certain that everyone has something that they could offer for Meatball's Auction (if you're unable to donate).
There are lots of neat things already in the Auction (which you can see by going to this website...you may even see something you'd like to bid on), but the more funds or auction items received, the better the chances of the family being able to care for their beloved Meatball.

We all know how precious our pups are to us and how devastated we'd be to face something like this (having to make a choice on saving our pet due to lack of funds). So, let's show what we can do here on Dogster to help this family avoid the pain of saying goodbye to their precious Meatball!

Here's the website that's been made to help Meatball:

We can do this if we all pitch in just a little!

Thanks in advance for your compassion & help!!

It is a very very sad day. Our little friend SWEET GEOFFREY went to the Rainbow Bridge last night. He was such a sweet little guy. Geoffrey had a very hard time finding his furever home, but when he did, he hit the jackpot! He had a wonderful mom and brother. I am so thankful to them for letting SWEET GEOFFREY know what it was like to have a home full of love. We will miss you so much SWEET GEOFFREY. Run free now little boy. You are whole and well again. We will always love you and never ever forget you!

 

Our Daddy Is Coming Home Today!

As many of you know (though Mom was too frazzled to put this in our Diary when it happened), our Daddy had a heart attack on Monday, June 15th. He was taken to our local hospital by ambulance and was airlifted via helicopter from there to Fairfax INNOVA hospital in Fairfax, VA. His heart had to be shocked twice in the helicopter and then twice more in the Cardiac ICU unit (for irregular heartbeat) following work done on him in the Cath Lab (where they put in two more stents in his arteries). This was Dad's third heart attack & Mom was terrified that he may not survive another one, but thankfully, he did. He also has an aneurysm in his groin which will need to be addressed once his heart heals, but we'll deal with that later. Mom is just so grateful for the outpouring of support & prayers from all you wonderful Dogster furiends and we believe all the prayers are what pullled Daddy through.

So, our Daddy is coming home this afternoon, but he's developed an infection in his left arm at the site of some injection or drip & severe pain in running up his arm (wrist to elbow), so the arm is pretty much unuseable for now. They took him down & did a sonogram on his arm this morning, which (we assume) is how they spotted the infection.

Doc is releasing him with antibiotics & pain pills & instructions to keep the arm elevated. We do feel that Daddy will be better off at home and he's so anxious to leave. We're waiting to get the go ahead that he's cleared to go...looks like its building up to storm again and is hot & humid as blazes...thank goodness for good a/c in the van!

We all got a good night's sleep here at home,thankfully and with a little help from Xanax! Mom woke up with a migraine, but took meds so it's better (and she's not driving).

We know that Sully & Socks are going to be elated to see their Daddy...we've had to give Sully homeopathic "Calms Forte" as he's really been restless and worried about why his Daddy isn't here. Socks has been better off...she sleeps most of the time anyway.

The gratitude we feel is beyond words for all of your prayers and continued support.

Much love,
Sully & Socks

 

Happy Father's Day & Thanks to All~

We can't begin to express our thanks to all you wonderful pups, kitties & families who sent support to our family this past week when our Daddy had another (the 3rd) heart attack. He is home now and doing very well...except for the struggle to quit smoking (it makes folks cranky)....but he must quit as his doctor said that's what has torn his heart apart and it's doubtful he'd survive another one.

Thank you Buhens little corner of hope for all the messages, phone calls & flowers and the love & support you give us each & every day...how we treasure you all! Flicka & Lucas Mom & Takoda's Daddy, oh how much those calls meant & the sweet cards from Rocky & Sarge!

Bless you all for the rosettes & pawmails from DarlaMae, Daisy & Ella, Baxter & MacKenzie, Maxwell, Roxy & Kodi, Kubbi & Toffi Bear, Petunia Grace & Phoebe, Dixie Black Pearl, Zaidie, Rocky & Sarge, Willie, Savannah Blue Belle, Samoa & Lil Dubs, Biscotte, Crouton & Tippy, Nelly, Redford's Pack, Kirby & Tribe, DaisyMae & Annie, Snappy, Russell, Tilly & Toby, Darby & Mom (Mom tried so hard to find everyone's name to thank, but if she missed any...please forgive & know how much we appreciated your thoughtfulness!).

We hope all the Dads have a very Happy Fathers Day !!

 

Here's to you, Angel Sam!!

When we first joined Dogster in March of 2008, it was only Sully and Mom (oh, Socks visited occasionally, but she wasn't in our pack yet).

One of the first friends we made was Sam (Dogster ID#676854) who was fighting cancer with all his might. Sam was funny & sweet and we so enjoyed our time with him until he crossed over the Bridge on June 27, 2008. Sam (in typical upbeat style) said it's so beautiful in Heaven and he was already enjoying himself...it made us happy that he was no longer in pain from the cancer that took him. Sam and his family fought a valiant effort during the last few months, but he finally succumbed and all who knew him were deeply saddened.

Our thoughts this week are with Sam's family...brofur "Charlie" & sistfur "LouLou de Labradoodle" and Mom and we know they have found peace in knowing their beloved Sam is now watching over them.

Sam was very, very dear to us and we were heartbroken at his loss. God gained a very special angel when Sam crossed the bridge!

So...until we meet again...here's to you Angel Sam...we love you!!

 

Dedicated to Dear Friends Who Went to the Bridge in July- 2008...

July 18-22, 2009 marks the one year anniversary of the journey of some of our dear friends to the Rainbow Bridge and we are dedicating our thoughts this week to them and their families, remembering all to well this week last year:

Remo the Red Turning White (Dogster ID#106064) was a beautiful red Golden Retriever who lived in Chicago with his Mom & Dad and sister "Lucky Lucy" (also a Golden Retriever) and brother WINston XXLP (a beautiful & sweet English Bulldog). Remo's family did all that love could do to save him, but he went to the Bridge with a big, loving smile to his family on July 18th (also his Daddy's birthday...can you imagine!) at 9:00am CST and joined his sister "Honey Bunny" (also a Golden Retriever who'd gone to the Bridge in June 2006, Dogster ID#106060). Many of us who knew Remo & were with his family in spirit during those last weeks will be holding tinfoil stars to the sun at 9:00am CST on Saturday, July 18th. Remo's family is celebrating Remo's life through his diary this week....to remember the joy, not the pain. Our hearts are with them in celebration & remembrance of dear, sweet Remo.

Snoopy was a little Boston Terrior (Dogster ID#608755) in Kentucky who was pregnant during this week last year. On July 22nd, 2008, Snoopy gave birth to 8 puppies and sadly went to the Bridge shortly after giving birth to the puppies. All of the puppies passed over very soon except two...Blossom & Little Snoopy, who survived for a short time after being born. Blossom succumbed first, but Little Snoopy held on for several weeks, however it was not meant to be and Little Snoopy went to join the others at the Rainbow Bridge. The family did everything possible to save Blossom & Little Snoopy, but their heroic efforts were not in the plan for Little Snoopy. We hope they know we are thinking of them this week and remember all they went through last year. We send our love & comfort to the family.

 

We're baaaaack!

Well, after a five month break from working on our page, Mom finally put some new picture of us on it...mainly to show how well our Daddy has recovered from his third heart attack on June 15, 2009. We were all beginning to think Daddy would never get any better...he was so sick for so long and we all missed him so much. But now, it looks like our pack is ok again and we can't thank all of our Dogster pals enough for all the support, cards, phone calls, rosettes and more while Mom was so busy taking care of Daddy! You guys are AWESOME!

Much love to all,
Sully & Socks

We want to wish all our Dogster pals and their families and very Happy Thanksgiving!

We are so grateful for all the wonderful friends we've met on Dogster and the outpouring of support from all of you during our Daddy's long recover from his third heart attack on June 15th.

Of course, we are so thankful this day (and every day) that our Daddy is still with us and is recovering. He's doing so well that he's actually going to cook our Thanksgiving dinner today! Mom made three pies yesterday and we're having some of our neighbors who don't have family stop by during the day...they've all been so wonderful to us and helped us during all those months that Daddy was so sick.

We wish all of you happiness and good health and our prayers go out to any pups in need. You are all so very special to us!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

WOOOHOOO...we're having our first snow today and it's coming down in buckets!! Mom let us go out on the deck and play in the snow and we had a ball wearing ourselves out & getting totally soaked...she got soaked, too, taking our pictures (it's a very wet snow).

Daddy went out front (we couldn't play out there 'cause the pawrents don't trust us not to make a jail break & take off) and knocked the heavy snow off our bushes which were leaning way low. Hopefully they won't break now.

We're having so much fun getting ready for Christmas! Mom is making most of our Christmas presents this year (lots of pictures in frames for our friends & family) and has been working on them for about a month now. It's very time consuming, but Mom's enjoying it and hope everyone will like their presents 'cause they're homemade!
We're going to try to put up our big white tree this weekend.

Our Daddy is so much better now and that makes us all really happy...best Christmas gift we could get!

We hope all our pup pals and their families are having fun and are healthy...and our prayers go out to any in need of POTP!

Enjoy this wonderful season everypup & peep!!

We love all of our pals a whole lot!
