Pillars of Strength - A Special Day for K


Hi KB!

You wrote me at Christmas time, so devastated because you just learned that K, the dog of your heart, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma and I sat and cried while I read it.

But I also knew that you had not begun to research this disease, or learned what you would need to do, or put your personal power (which is considerable) to work for you.  I  knew things would be different for this beautiful girl of yours (and ours!) once you got things rolling.  And they have been, haven't they?  I have watched you decide that K should be able to live her life with however much zest she could muster.  That has been considerable too.

I have written you e-mails asking how "our girl" was, and knew that
many, many of us felt exactly that way.  We can't wait to check your post everyday, to learn how K is on that day, whats happening treatment wise and how you are managing it.  I and many others pray for her daily, and feel that she is getting the best care, medically and spiritually, that she needs (and that includes you.)

So,  while I would like to be able to say she will be fine, I can more easily say with the Power of the Paw, the Power of Prayer, and your Power I believe some miraculous things may happen for K.  That is what we all want.

With love,

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

KB's blog Romping and Rolling in the Rockies is a wonderful daily look at life in the Rockies, with wild life, bears, mountain lions, Bobcats, elk and deer.  Stop and take a look!

  9. What a great little letter to KB. It's so nice to see so many bloggers coming together to rally around another. I am so thankful to be a part of this community!

  10. Excellent post to our shared friends K and KB. We too envision that the amazing K will beat all the odds and live longer than anyone expects. We think at least 2 years would be good. Thanks for being a Pillar.
