Lord God, you are the Creator of all living things. We know that you care for each and every precious life. Please watch over all those whom we love and care for. We pray for healing and relief to all pets who suffer from illness or poor living conditions. We also pray for those humans we have come to know through our associations in Blogville. Give them strength when they are weary, health when they are ill, and hope when they feel hopeless. And we especially pray for those furiends and friends we have listed here.
LADYBUG ~ fluffy, adorable, cute as a bug! So much loved by Jeanne and her sissyfur Chloe, and the whole BICHONPAWZ family, and so we sadly share the news that this little one has crossed her Rainbow Bridge very unexpectedly. There is not yet a posting on their blog, Jeanne is in shock over the sudden loss of LadyBug ~ so you may wish to wait a bit to leave a comment of comfort ... but please do check in. Thank you.
This was reported to us by Lady Shasta & her mom: "I was just on the blog of Dachsies With Moxie - Tasha, Queen of the Unstuffed Stuffed Squeaky Toys, was found to have a mass on either her liver or spleen. She will be undergoing an ultrasound to determine treatment options. Also, the DWM's dad - his mom just had a stroke on top of other health issues and also in need of POTP." For more info: http://dachsieswithmoxie.blogspot.com/2017/05/potp-needed.html."
Casey and his Momma would like to ask for our POTP for Jessie.
Jessie is a fun loving girl and had such fun at our Park event she was
Dreaming of being Mary Poppins...look at that smile
This is from Jessie's Momma
We'd also like to ask for a little Power of the Paw. I went to the dogtor this week to have more blood stolen so we could see how my camel treatments are working. Momma was a little concerned because they don't seem to be making me feel any better, and I actually lose my appetite for a day or two after the treatments. Unfortunately, the blood tests don't show much of an improvement, and the dogtor isn't really sure what to do. So we're going to go back to visit the specialist who diagnosed me in the furst place to get another view of how my kidneys are working and see if he has any more suggestions. If you could keep your paws crossed for me, Momma and I would appreciate it.

Mom wrote to Flynn's Mom, Ms. Jackie, to check on how she was doing.
She goes back for a CT scan on 4/28 to see if the medication is shrinking her tumors.
She also wrote the below about Flynn.
We have just got back from the vet. Luckily Dr. Mark was on call so we were able to see him out of hours. Flynn has gone downhill a lot the past week and we have about come to the end of what we can do for him. Mark gave him a Rimadyl injection which is a painkiller to see if it will help him. He is hardly eating anything and has lost one pound in the last 7 days. .
If the Rimadyl works and he seems more comfortable in the next 24 hours we can continue to give it in pill form. We really thought he would be joining Eric today, but Mark has given us hope that he can stay with us for a while yet. The next 48 hours will tell so please keep him in your thoughts.
Flynn just turned 17 on 4/8....we all know he is a fighter.
Please send some prayers and hugs to his peeps and to him by clicking here
The below is from Dory's Mama Saturday morning April 8th:
We wanted to let you know Dory has been going downhill for the past 2 days. We took her to the vet on Thursday where they aspirated almost a liter of liquid from her abdomen and gave us new heart meds. She hadn’t been eating well when we took her, and the vet thought she would get her back to eating after draining the liquid from her tummy. To our dismay, with the exception of a few bites of chicken on Friday morning, she isn’t interested in food at all. Not even Zukes or Greenies. We even tried an appetite simulator yesterday afternoon with no results. Late Saturday afternoon Beth emailed me that it was clear that Dory had tried her best but she was too tired to fight any more. Saturday night they spent the evening surrounding Dory with LOVE.
Today April 9, at 9:30 am PST, Ed and I will be with Dory to help her make her journey across the Rainbow Bridge.
A member of the White Dog Army, Benson is having more problems. At one time he had kidney disease but now the fear is cancer. This is on the heels of losing their Anya just a couple of days ago. Please send them some POTP!
Recently Jessie's momma took her to the dogtor to test her bloods and pee to see how her kidneys are doing. Unfortunately, her levels are starting to creep up again, to the point that Jessie isn't feeling as hungry and is kinda tired. It makes me and Momma sad, but we keep up a brave face for Jessie. She's just a kid, she doesn't understand. She's going to start having a treatment where the dogtor puts water UNDER her skin to help her get hydrated a little easier. We're hoping that will help her out. Please cross your paws for her! Jessie will have her treatment tomorrow...please send her some
Paws Together please for dear sweet HOLLY
from Da Weenies of Florida.
Little Holly has had a hard time for awhile now, and recently things have been
worse for her ~ she really needs the power of the paw, as does her Mom and her
family. She is 17-years young, and the hope and prayer is that no
decisions will yet need to be made for her ~ your words of care and comfort
will surely help. Thank you http://amber-daweenie.blogspot.com/
For beautiful ANYA, the curious white dog ~ of the White Dog Army. So loved by Sue and Steve and all the white dogs in their care, she has crossed her rainbow bridge. Be at peace. Please visit with words of comfort for all. Thank you.
Handsome TROOPER, loving companion to Elinor, Auntie El to The Florida Furkids, has crossed his Rainbow Bridge to be reunited with her. Loved by Elinor and then by his new “Grandma” after Elinor passed, Trooper will be missed. We know the reunion of Trooper and Elinor was a joyful one and that they are happy to be together again. Please visit to leave words of comfort for Trooper and his family, thank you.
Many of the new citizens of Blogville may not know that Linda from Da Weenies and Ann from Zoolatry jointly keep track of our furiends who have traveled OTRB. Once a month a new post is on that blog site. Contact information is below.
Ann writes: I want to take a moment today to remind all pet bloggers about a very special blog, OUR RAINBOW FRIENDS. This blog publishes once a month, usually about mid-month, in memory of all our pet friends who have crossed their Rainbow Bridge. It has been publishing now since January of 2012 ~ becoming a permanent memorial for so many beloved pets.
With many bloggers leaving the community of blogging for Facebook and other social media, participation and comments have noticeably declined. This is unfortunate as our pets deserve better. We encourage everyone to consider "following" this blog, so you will not miss the publishing date, and be able to leave words of comfort for those who have crossed the bridge.
As members of this caring community ~ this is little to ask for. Also, when you become aware of any pet who has crossed the bridge, please let us know (it need not be your own pet) by sending an email to: our rainbow friends at gmail dot com. We can then reach out to the pet owner for information and be able to include their pet on the monthly blog.
Thank you for remembering and thank you for caring.
Sugar has one of the most beautiful and highly recognized smiles in Blogville. Wearing her purple boots she left pawprints all over our hearts. We followed her in her travels and now she is preparing for her last journey.
Sugar was diagnosed with lymphoma. It is not treatable and she is spending her final days/hours at home in the loving company of her humans. Please send them prayers of comfort as they move forward in this last walk.
Please send loving words to the family of beautiful TABBYwho crossed her Rainbow Bridge on Valentine's day.
Tabby was just 11-years young and had fought well against kidney disease, but it was time to rest, to be at peace. Your comfort and caring will mean so very much.
A special note: TABBY'S home is the blog RESCUES and MORE. This blog was formerly Homeless Cat Care and if you were a follower or visitor please note that recently the blog had a name and link change due to several issues. So please make note of the new name and link.
Gentle purrs and your prayers are needed please for dear little SOCKS from Alasandra, The Cats & The Dogs (ATCAD). They've received news that his dental problems are most likely an aggressive form of oral cancer. Your thoughts and care will be so appreciated, thank you.
One of our newer doggie pals in Blogville sure could use some POTP! Molly has recently been diagnosed with a loss of vision. She has lost all but about 25 percent now and they are hoping the meds will work to save her from losing any more! Please send her lots of POTP that her vision loss will be arrested and that her pawrents are able to continue making changes to accommodate her decreased vision. You can find Molly here!
