Thankful Thursday

Hello Friends.

Remember back in October I told you about Grace?  If not you can read about her Here, just scroll down past me eating tacos and you will see the story.  In short she was attacked by 2 street dogs outside St. Anne's.  Her companion lived at St. Anne's Homeless Center.  Grace received some pretty bad, life threatening injuries, but her companion could not afford to take her to the vet.  I ask for help from you and your response was overwhelming and she was able to have the surgery. 


Here she is right before her surgery.

 And here she is after her surgery.  It has been a long road of recovery.

Wednesday night my MOM had a board meeting at St. Anne's.  When it was over she was leaving and walking through the lobby.  And then she stopped short and who should she see sitting so pretty eating a Milk Bone?  GRACE!

Isn't she beautiful.  And she is all better now.  And most of her furs have grown back where she had to be shaved.  My MOM dropped to her knees and just hugged and loved on her.  She is just the sweetest pup you'd ever want to meet.  She is happy and healthy and did I mention she is sweet sweet Sweet.  

I know this photo is blurry.  MOM took it with her phone and the lobby was packed with people who where checking in for the night.

Friends I want to thank each and every one of you.  Many of you sent green papers to help pay for Grace's vet bills and all of you said a prayer and sent the Power of the Paw for her.  And just look at the beautiful results.  She was even wearing the collar I gave her and attached to the collar was the See Beautiful tag that Buddy, Lilly and Lydia sent to her.  And friends that is what I see, BEAUTIFUL.  Grace is beautiful, and each and everyone of you is beautiful for how much you cared to help save her life.   You will most likely never meet Grace but each of you are apart of her and her companion's life, and they are so very much thankful.  And me and MOM are thankful, grateful and blessed to be a part of a community that does not hesitate to do such a beautiful thing.  It means a lot to us.
Blessings,
Goose

    Mom got a chuckled out of your comment about sliding on our floors.
    When my peeps moved here 28 years ago they had a mighty mini Doxie named Toto. Mom said thank goodness Toto was vertically challenged because he only had one speed with was 'go fast'. He took most of the corners on 2 legs. Hugs Madi and Mom

  34. My goodness, what a touching story! There are many homeless in the canyons around here. I am often amazed that a human who has so little will opt to help an animal in need.
