Fantastic Friday!


Power of the Paw Prevails!!!


photo by Greg Nichols


So you guys remember Quigley's dad, right?  Well that's him in the picture.  He's my niece's (She's that really beautiful young woman holding Quigley) husband who was diagnosed with lymphoma in early January.  We asked you guys for some Power of the Paw. Well, Quig's dad has been doing some heavy-duty chemo, and has had a spinal surgery in which they replaced a vertebra in his spine and did some other repair work, and as of Tueday night, he is CANCER FREE!!!  OMD!! Praise the Paw!! He still has additional chemo to undergo, and a long recovery with his spinal surgery, but this is fabulous news!  

Thank you to all the paws!  Please continue to keep Quigley and his parents in mind over the next few months.  Thank you.


Speaking of the Paw...


Don't forget to visit Richie and Ronnii's auction!!

But don't bid on the stuff we've already bid on.  Thanks.  

Also, Minna Krebs and Miss Puddles are organizing a Kissing Booth at the Auction. See their sites (2/28) for more information.  Our lips are puckered!!  All the money raised from the kissing stuff will go to Richie and Ronnie

You guys are awesome.  Thank you so much.

I am always so excited to hear about cancer free news!! My niece was diagnosed with ALL (leukemia) at the age of 5 and let me tell you we did happy dances and partied when she was done treatment and declared cancer free. (they treated her for almost 3 years so it was long time coming!!). Anyway, lots of happiness here for Quigley's dad!!!

Hi Y'all,

I don't understand all you Humans "prayer" and "church" thing, but I sure can keep my paws crossed!

My Human says she and Papa can take care of the rest.

They have 3 close friends sufferin' from various cancers...so we've been busy with crossed paws and prayer.

Y'all come by now,
