gratitude for your compassion

I’m so grateful to each one of you who has contacted us during this wild ride with our dog. I may not have answered individually, and I apologize for that. Each message and phone call deserves a one-on-one response–and our attention right now is fully with Maggie. I believe you understand.

This is Maggie at four-and-a-half months, before all her facial “furnishings” came in. I find that face irresistable!

The vet is pretty clear that a spider bite catalyzed this outrageous set of symptoms. This changes the protocol. She with the vet today, as they assess her condition and make sure she doesn’t have kidney failure. If she does, that would be the end of the road for Maggie.

She has been dear and patient and sweet throughout all of this intervention, much of which has been uncomfortable, I know.

The word that arises in the mind is “courageous,” but I think that is human story. She is life, living. Quite amazing.
