A Mix of Thanks, Peace, Reflection, Sadness, and Hope

Thanks today to a very special lady who visited our blog and offered to make us a peaceglobe. Even though Thursday was the big day for posting about peace, our peaceglobe is just so beautiful that we wanted to share it with you today. Thanks, Anne - your lovely creation filled our hearts with peace and thanksgiving.






In our Wondering Why post on Wednesday, we told you about this wonderful event that will be happening across BlogWorld on Sunday, November 14th, the Second Annual Worldwide Moment of reflection, meditation, contemplation and prayer, sponsored by Two Special Wires, Jake and Fergi, and their Mom.

You choose.


With the power of these two special events described above, we are holding in our hearts very special thoughts and prayers for all the furries and their families out there who are in need of our love and support AND there are just so many, too many, way too many.

We were deeply saddened this morning to read some sad news about two of our special furiends. After the posts done by Stella here and us here a few weeks ago, many of you have become regular followers of the beautiful chocolate lab named "K" and her human KB at Romping and Rolling in the Rockies. Yesterday was the big day for the removal of K's foot cast. We were shocked, stunned, and saddened to hear the possibility of another invasion of the nasty "C" word. Please be sure to visit K and KB and offer them once again the power of the paw and your prayers.

While visiting KB's post, we noticed a comment from Houndstooth of Tales and Tails. Blueberry had a vet visit to have a suspicious lump on her head checked. They too now need the power of the paw for good news from Blueberry's lab reports.

We also want to give a special request for good thoughts and prayers for two special kitties, Inigo and Tinkerbell. We know the list of those in need goes on and on, and so rather than risk missing any, we ask you to cross your paws and bow your heads for all those out there who really need to feel the love right now.

We are sorry for such a sad post on this beautiful autumn day. But sometimes we have to feel the sadness of others to bring on hope and strength. We will always remember the special warmth of love we have felt from all of you for our moments of sadness too.

Wishing you all a love-filled weekend with your families.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Pee Ess - thanks to all of for making us smile with all your clever wonderings:)

I am so excited about the minute of meditation on November 14 and have added the clock to our blog.

It's been a rough few weeks with lots of animals and people in need. We are thinking and remembering all of them! Thanks for this special post.

Your pal, Pip

Frankie Furter said...

Do not worry about this not being a FUN post. We KNOW that we all live in Blogville together and that we are here to share the BITTER along with the Sweet. Thank you fur telling us who is in need of our Pawsitive thoughts and crossed paws and special VIBES.
You are very much grrrreat furends to Everybuddy. And Furends stick together through thick and thin.

Stella said...

I agree that KB's post about the possibility of K having cancer in her foot was so devastating. We were expecting a cast removal and K starting PT for her life of action once again.

I agree that it would be good to offer your prayers or good wishes to K or any dog/cat with difficult times.

Thinking of them all and wishing for wellness!

Kisses,
Stella

The power of the paw is an awesome force and we'll definitely paw it forward! Thanks for sharing this information!

Raising Addie said...

It breaks our heart know that so many of our friends are in pain.

We couldn't believe it when we saw K's post yesterday. We have also been following along with Tinkerbell.

We are praying for all our furry friends that their pain is eased.

BIG hugs all around!

Lots of Luv & Kisses
Addie, Lucie and Hailey

Sierra Rose said...

Thank you for this post. It has been a heart string tug these past few months. Lots of unexpected furpal happenings and tears with each change or possibility. A good time for the Worldwide Moment.

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
Sierra Rose

houndstooth said...

We were stunned yesterday when we read KB's post, too. It was not the news we were expecting at all!

Well, we weren't expecting our own news yesterday, either, to tell the truth. I really thought they'd tell me it was a fatty lump and nothing to worry over. We are so thankful that so many people have been so supportive of us already! Blueberry is such a sweetheart, and still quite young at eight years old. We are hoping for better news after the lump comes off and gets biopsied.

Thank you so much for thinking of us!

Bunny and her mom

It's so hard to be reminded that we have these special fur kids for short a time. While we celebrate our good times with our pets, we keep special thoughts for those who are going thru rough times. We've all been there.

It fills us all with such sadness when we find out that our friends are not doing well. We are sending out good thoughts all around.

Cheyenne -Millie said...

We hopes that all those who are sad find comfort. We will purr and pray and bark for all those in need.

sprinkles said...

There are so many animals needing our prayers. I worry about them all.

I really like the idea of this Worldwide Movement and am thinking about participating.

Clive said...

Thank you so much for your kind comments about Tinkerbell over the past few days and for remembering her in your post today. There is such a lot of sickness out there.

Hopefully the next few days brings good news not just for Tinkerbell.

take care
Clive and Murray

Santa, Minnie and Christmas said...

We really don't know what to say. It is so sad and it hurts us to know that there are some furry friends out there that are sick and in pain. We will pray, in our own ways, for them to get well soon and that they do not need to suffer too much pain.

Tanuki Maxx said...

Hi Friends!

We will send prayers and good thoughts and keep their memories alive forever!

Cheers,
Maxx

BeadedTail said...

We're sorry to hear about K and are saddened by all the news of furiends in need lately but we believe in the power of the paw (and the purr)! We're sending out positive thoughts and prayers to all the dogs and kitties to get better soon!

KB said...

Thank you so much for your kind words. The OP pack is so wonderful to all of us blogging friends.

We're still researching bone cancer and talking with vets so there's no news on our front. It's always so hard to be hit with something so surprising and to rapidly learn enough to be a good dog owner. I know that you've been in my shoes. Thanks so much for your kindness.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

The peaceglobe is beautiful and a very good idea. I remember it from last year. Its time for a healing to begin.
It is a time for those who are sick and hurting, to be healed.
We need hope and maybe the peaceglobe can help.
I am so sad for all of those who are sick right now,,,, yes, too many to name them all.
We are very sad. We have sent the Power Of The Paws.
And now we also hope for peace.
love
tweedles

Samantha said...

Ohhhhh... we know we know. About most sadnesses except about the kitties. Thank you for telling us. It seems that blogworld has either lost some special friends or a disproportionate number of our furpals are experiencing sickies of a bad kind. We will be pawticipating in the amazing worldwide Moment on Sunday, knowing how many others will share in that incredible event.
With Love and Hugs xoxoxo

Aksharaa said...

Hiii,
This is such a beautifully written post, so poignant...
We are trying to catch up & have just found all about the MOMENT. will go grab the clock .Thanks for the info.

Thanks for all your wishes & love.We think we are lucky to have friends like u who truly care.

Woof is trying hard to fit in & is doing rather well.We are trying to teach him to walk on the lease. his paw still hurts & w want to make him use it slowly so that he dosn't develop stiffness.
As for the toys, he is least intersted in any of them unless it is a chew toy!!
Ciara, Phantom & Thunder, u better not let him get to your treat cupboard, at least not till he learns to be a little less hungry!!!!
wags, Ginger & Buddy
