Saydee's Wonderful Update #Two

From JL:
Your prayers are indeed helping. I took her to the vet a few days ago for an eye pressure recheck. The pressure came down all the way to 9 !! Last week when the first pressure was checked and when her eye was so painful and bulging it was a very high 53. At this pressure damage to the eye can occurs. I was completely in shock and thrilled when the vet told how far it came down. I think the vet was also surprised that the number dropped this low and this quickly.
She has not had anymore pain as far as I can tell except when I place the eye drops. She will close her eye for a few minutes and that is it. This left eye is almost the same size as the other. All the cloudiness is gone, the pupil is no longer large. The vet said is was almost hard to tell which eye is affected.

Saydee is back to her outgoing, happy, spunky and sassy self since Christmas Eve. She's playing with toys and back to being sassy with the other pets.

Please continue praying for her as this is proof that prayers work. She will be going to an Opthamologist in a few weeks and I want this vet to say that she doesn't see any signs of Glaucoma in either eye. I have been praying to St. Anthony, St. Lucy and St. Francis everyday several times a day. I asked for the pain to be taken away, the pressure to be lowered and the Glaucoma to gone and all health restored to her eyes. I thank you.

Updated Prayer Request for Mystee the Cat

From Stephanie:
Thank you all so much. Mystee is still with us and she has good days and bad. She's going to the vet tomorrow to get an injection of anti-inflammatory which will help make her mouth more comfortable since surgery is not an option due to the location of the tumor. I will keep you updated. Thanks again. This site has given me a lot of comfort.

Urgent Prayer Request for Sparkey the Dog

From Shaquille:
My dog sparkey has ingested something called gramoxone. It's said to be always fatal. He's hung on for so long, but he keeps having seizures, can't stand, and he seems to be blind. Apparently someone deliberately fed him this poison. Please pray for his immediate recovery. He's always been so protective of my family and I. Please help.

Urgent Prayer Request for Luffy the Dog...and Owner Shannon

From Jan:
I have just now gotten an email from my daughter, Shannon, she has been reading your blog.

I sent her your email address so she could send you a prayer request for her dog, Luffy but I have been thinking about and praying for Luffy for sometime now and would like to copy/paste Shannon's email to you as a prayer request from me for Luffy and Shannon.

Here is her email, Esther: some nights now at the end of his day hopping about he cant get up due to his front leg being so misshapen i just pet him and say "its okay Luffy." I know its only weeks before the inevitable happens. (you know the shot) i didn't realize till the first night he couldn't move that his mind will be strong and fine like if i could take it out and put it in a new body he would be fine. very sad and makes me cry. i just feed him and love him and am glad it wasn't today.

Thank you so very much

Updated Prayer Request for Scruff the Dog

From Nicole:
Blood work back...elevated numbers that can indicate kidney failure (from the trauma and shock of surgery at her age). Doc wants to keepher on an IV overnight to keep her hydrated and re-run labs tomorrow. Doc was concerned but relatively positive. He said he has seen much worse and if we can get her eating we may have a fighting chance. Michael and I truly appreciate all of your prayers and I believe that they are making a difference. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts...

Updated Prayer Request for Idea the Dog

From Manoo: Many many Thanks... My Idea is doing much better now. Her tumor was remarkably reduced a week after you started the prayers & the vet was surprised to see that. At first, he could not even locate where the swelling was. The fluid oozing also stopped in the first week. Her arthritis looks better too as she is able to jump on sofas and beds now which she really could not.

Now, the problem is with her cough that happens mainly in the nights & goes on for 2-3 days at a stretch & then stops & comes again.

Please keep the prayers going for her as she is receiving them & feeling them. Please pray that her tumor does not return in the body; that arthritis, cough & other diseases also get cured & healed in Divine Light.

I once again thank you for praying selflessly for my Idea. May you be blessed too!

Much love & joy to you all,

Urgent Prayer Request for Mollie the Dog

From Haley:
I came across your blog while searching for prayers for my dog, Mollie. She was diagnosed with AIHA yesterday after she was unable to get up off her bed. She's normally bursting with energy so we took her straight to the vet. It's not looking good for her and she's currently undergoing a blood transfusion. Hopefully her medicines will start working. Any thoughts or prayers would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Urgent Prayer Request for Scruff the Dog

Please pray for my little Scruff. Someone shot her with a pellet gun last week. She had to have surgery to remove two inches of her intestines, which were then reattached. She has survived a week, but is now refusing to eat. She has been with us a long time and does not deserve to go out because of this!

Thank you and God Bless.

Update on Saydee the Dog

From JL: ...Christmas Eve she began to feel much better! She was finally getting out of her bed and so much more active. Her outgoing, happy, loving and sassy personality seemed to have come back. I could tell her one eye was no longer cloudy and as bulging and the pain was not so bad as she was keeping it opened.
Today she seems to continue improving. She is back to giving huggs and kisses! I am so very thankful.

I have been praying to St Anthony to preform a miracle on her. To take away the pain, the pressure and the glaucoma and not to go in to the other eye. I will pray to St Lucy as well.

Prayer Request for Quija the Cat

From the comment section:
Please pray for the safe return of my beautiful Ragdoll boy Ouija (Wee-Gee). Today is Christmas Day and he has been missing from our home since Tuesday. I have searched day and night and have only gotten a few hours sleep over the past several days. He is such a beautiful kitty so I hope no one has taken him. If they have, I hope they've cared for him until I can claim him. He is a strictly indoor cat and I am so worried. He has all of his claws but is such a sweet baby. Our house isn't a home without him. Please pray for his swift and safe return home !

Urgent Prayer Request for Toby the Dog

From Ronald:
Thirteen years ago this month (December) I was blessed with a little ball of white fluff whom I named Toby. This blessing was bestowed upon me completely by chance as I was walking past a pet shop and noticed him sitting there, staring at me through the glass. His little stare seemed to go straight to my heart. It was love at first sight and he has been my loving and faithful companion since that day. He changed my life (for the better) in so many ways.

Throughout his life he has had many illnesses and has courageously fought through them one at a time. He is nicknamed the “miracle dog” at the veterinary clinic because of his fortitude. However he now has a heart condition that I fear will, soon, take him from me. I pray that he passes peacefully if that is God’s will. I pray that there is room in heaven for him and that the love and kindness he has shown to me be rewarded there.

Would you please say a prayer for my little "angel from heaven", Toby.

Respectfully yours

Urgent Prayer Request for Brady the Puppy

Animals in Heaven?

Good article! But Do Bad Dogs Go to Hell?

Zeb the Dog's Beautiful Death

My friend Mary gave me permission to share her story about Zeb with you. Thank you for your kind comments and prayers for Mary.

My dog's name is Zeb. He pretty much died of old age. He hated the vets so I prayed that he would have a gentle death at home. The veterinarian had given us pain medication to ease his final days so he was pretty pain-free.

He died while I rocked him and prayed the Rosary. I asked Mother Mary to speed up his passing and I guess she certainly did because he died by the 3rd decade. Even though his death was expected I bawled for hours. Dogs are just so sweet and loving, I can't seem to resist them. Good thing Michaela was in school yesterday, I had no control over the tears and it would have upset her terribly. Thank you for offering to post his name on your blog - we will miss him so much. The puppy, Caesar, seemed to understand that Zeb was very sick and was very gentle with him at the end :)

Esther, I sure hope there are animals in heaven. Some say no but I think there are.

God bless!

From Vikki:
Thank you... for posting our prayer request for our precious Bailey Boy. His pathology tests results came in today and it was good news. They were able to remove all of the tumor, no cancer cells were left behind. The tumor removed turned out to be benign, and not a malignancy as suspected by the doctors. Our family thanks God in all of his mercy for this out-come. We also thank you and your prayer warriors for your kindness and prayers. We will continue to pray for other pets and their people in need. Words cannot express our profound gratitude for prayers received. God bless you all.

Urgent Prayer Request for Bailey Boy the Dog

From Vikki:
He recently has had a tumor removed, a very aggressive tumor. While he recovers from the surgery, we are awaiting the pathology report to find out if the good doctors were able to remove all of the tumor. We pray that no cancer cells were left behind and that he may restored to whole again. He has been our faithful friend and companion for the past 9 years. The center piece of our family and we love him dearly. Prior to the surgery he showed no signs of being ill. He was his normal happy go-lucky self. We pray that we may see the light in his eyes once again.

Updated Prayer Request for Ferlitz the Dog

From Kit:
Please pray for my 6 year old dachshund Ferlitz. She had her back injury on Thanksgiving. I'm not sure what happened but she can't use her rear legs properly and won't go up/down the stairs since. She's been in strict cage rest for a week with strong steroids for anti-inflammation and paid meds but her condition did not improve when we took her back for her follow-up today. Her vet recommended for her to consult with a neurologist and set up an appointment with MRI to find out exactly what's wrong with my baby girl. She will see the neurologist tomorrow and will have an MRI and prayerfully, the result will not require back surgery. Please everyone I ask that you include her u your prayers and I also pray for all your pets and other family members who are sick or going through something. I really appreciate all the prayers. God bless!!!

The Power of the Dog

One of my good friends in Hawaii shared the following with me. She said she has been wanting to do so ever since Coco died.

The Power of the Dog
by Rudyard Kipling

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie--
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart to a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find--it's your own affair--
But ... you've given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!)
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone--wherever it goes--for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em, the more do we grieve:
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-term loan is as bad as a long--
So why in--Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

Please pray for the healing of Jasper, he is in the pet hospital dehydrated with possible kidney failure and is a diabetic.

Prayer Request for Ferlitz the Dog

By her owner:
Please pray for my baby girl Ferlitz...she is a 6-year old long-haired dapple brown dachshund. She has injured her back while on my watch during Thanksgiving with family and since then she's been unable to walk properly and almost undergone surgery, but thankfully, her slipped disc on her lower back can still be fixed with strict rest and pain meds. I feel terrible that it was fault and it pains me to see her sick and sad. I miss her bubbly character, her wet kisses, sweet lovely face, etc. I appreciate all the prayers and thank you all in advance. I also pray to all animals that are suffering and sick. They are also God's creatures and should be treated kindly. God Bless!

Prayer Request for Luna the Cat

From Tricia:
Luna ran off from our new home and is lost. He loved the home he grew up in and didn't understand why we moved and why he had to share with another boy cat already here.

Prayer Request for Diana-Faith Joseph

From Stacie Ann:
Please pray for my cat Diana-Faith Joseph she is in pain from wounds on her paw that resulted from an unknown injury. I don't have the skills and supplies to help her as she needs here at home, she needs a vet, I have no money for that or she would have seen one already. God is her only hope, He is the source of her miracle. Thank you. God Bless.

Happy St. Nicholas Day!

The following is from one of our friends/prayer warriors:

Thank you for everything you do, and for all those who pray on behalf of animals. Since today is St. Nicholas' day, I thought I'd share this lovely picture I found on the internet, depicting the kindly St. Nicholas taking the time to feed animals as he goes around delivering his presents...

New Pet Dog

Dear Friends of this blog:

I just wanted to say mahalo nui loa!!! I had been praying for and also asked for prayers that God would send me (my family) the right dog. We were hurting so much from Coco's death that I had to leave it in God's hands.

Well, we found the "right" dog! We adopted an older pup from our local humane society. We all fell in love with her almost from the time we spotted her.

She truly is perfect for our family. She loves us so much in such a short time!

Thank you again. And, please consider adopting a pet from the humane society. When I was searching for a dog, I was shocked at how many "owner surrendered" pets were there all begging for someone to take them home and love them.

Sad News - Staffy Jax the Dog

From Staffy Jax's Owner:
Thank you to everyone for all your prayers for our dog Jax. As I said in my post a couple of weeks ago, we were told by the vet that if he didn't get better by the next day (Nov 25th) we would have no other option but to put him down. Jax continued to fight and slowly we started seeing minor improvements. Unfortunately it wasn't enough and yesterday we had to put him down. I just want to thank everyone for their prayers for Jax, it gave us an extra week and a half with him :-) I will keep all the other sick animal on this website in pray, hoping for their total and complete healing and if any owners unfortunately go through what we did then I pray that God will strengthen you and your family, they may be only 'pets' to some ppl but i know just how difficult putting down an animal can be. Thank you once again for posting my prayer request for Jax D'Amato xxx

Prayer Request for Chita

From Cindy: I am asking for prayers for my Chita.

Thank you.

Urgent Prayer Request - Alex the Dog

From Beth:
Please pray for the safe return of Alex, a young Samoyed, to her beloved family in Nebraska. Alex was last seen nearly a week ago after she escaped her home, and may be in danger or injured and held captive by a disgruntled neighbor. Law enforcement is afraid of the neighbor and will do nothing to help. Please pray that this lovely dog is not suffering, and that her family with young children find their beloved pet.... these are good people and this is a wonderful, kind, sweet dog.

Many thanks,

Update on Pierre the Dog

From Lou Ann:
Joan reports that Pierre's biopsies came back with no sign of malignancy, no cancer, and all the prayers so much appreciated! Special thanks to all here.

Please do continue prayers, however, as Pierre's accompanying surgery was rather extensive and the dear boy has quite a large incision to heal - making it somewhat difficult for him to navigate.

Also, Pierre does have inflammatory bowel disease, and the first meds. and diet change to treat this caused him to get very very sick on his stomach and hard to keep anything down until that settles. Poor little fellow!!

So continued prayers most appreciated for Pierre and Joan; and for Pierre's sister doxie, Peaches, for her Cushing's disease to remain in good control.

... the prayers are truly so appreciated. Joan can't thank everyone enough.

Many thanks,...!!
It is really good news that Pierre doesn't have cancer. Thank you all for your prayers.
