|To Dogster for the honor of Dog of the Week. It is a comfort to have her honored on the annifursary of her wings but a rather novel way for 'her quest for a cure' to get the attention it so truly needs. Thank you.
IMHA takes way too many dogs & cats. 3 new cases on Dogster just last week and already one new Angel, Zoey. It is the leading immune blood illness and second only to thyroid in reported immune illness overall. There is no cure to date, yet even the maintenance (by medication) is often as dangerous as the illness itself. It can trigger other immune-mediated (IM) disease all on its own, and other life-threatening problems in its wake.
I understand now what 'as sick as a dog' means.
I honestly never want to see it again.
We have been doing research and seeking answers hoping in some way to make a difference in this plight since mica so tragically left us 2 years ago this afternoon, at 4:21pm. If you would, please, stop and say a prayer for her and ALL those suffering with this despicable disease.
We really do appreciate the opportunity to reach even more dogs through this prestigious honor, than just our pages allow for. WOW. Mom always says 'knowledge is power'. Mirra says lets add the 'power of the paw' & hope together (there have been a number of really stand up dogs who have joined our fight) we can spare even ONE loved one this indignity. PAWlease, remember the humans that must endure the pain, uncertainty and utter powerlessness to watch their beloved held captive by IMHA.
Our Blessings to all.
angel mica, mirra & mel
