MISS MEEA IS DOING SUPER!

meea-14328903_10155016633745110_13250978_n

Miss Meea, as we affectionately call her, was helped through the Maggie May fund last May.  We had the privilege of meeting her sweetness soon after, and sweet she certainly was. She later took a time out to attend one of our fundraisers, wanting to help bring awareness to our cause, and of course she was the star of the show.

We caught up with Miss Meea the other day, and her Mom writes ….

“Miss Meea might not hear or see much but can always find her food. A bit gray and chubby. The best is no more ear pain. She spends most of her senior days sleeping ad eating. She is a happy girl in spite of her losses. She loves her family and stays very close at all times. Thank you so much again.”

“Flinn makes sure that she is going in the right direction, he is so good and enjoys being her ears and eyes. Meea’s new sister Cassie just gets on her nerves as Cassie is very perky and inquisitive. Cassie thinks Meea is playing until Meea let’s her know that NO she is serious…. leave me alone. Lol”

We are so happy to have been able to help Meea!

FOR JOEY …. thank you for your support!

joey-p1aOne of the best parts of the job is being able to personally deliver our Maggie May blankets and to meet our furry friends.   A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of meeting Joey, his 8th birthday was coming up in a few days, and the blanket was to be a surprise! We had to cover his eyes, before we could sneak his special gift into the house. Joey was absolutely adorable and we were honoured to meet him and give him tons of belly rubs! We were told he is a spoiled pup on his birthdays … with a fancy cake too!  A much loved pup indeed!

Joey will be in next years Anniversary Quilt!

JOSIE ….. AN INSPIRATION ❤️

Josie 11141162_10153158512746498_5228117454139582764_n

Josie was our first recipient from the Maggie May fund in 2014. She will always have a special place in our hearts and ever since we have kept in touch, following her antics,  her bad days and her good. Josie has faced many hurdles since, but she continues to be happy and defy the odds.

Josie’s latest hurdle …. Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, but the good thing is that once the diagnosis is confirmed, it is treatable!

 

Nalyn (Josie’s Mom) is an amazing caregiver, she does everything she can possibly do for her girl. She continues to make sacrifices for her, she faces each hurdle with hope and a positive attitude. Josie is one lucky girl ….. but sometimes everyone needs a little help, if you would like to help Josie & Nalyn, you can donate directly to:

Western Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Centre – Dr. Glenna Mauldin
(403) 770-1340 using her name “Josie Hill-Unwin”

Nalyn gave Josie a chance, a chance to live, a chance to be happy, a chance to be loved. We recently asked Nalyn to write us an update on Josie …..

“Josie is as happy as can be despite all her medical issues! She likes to run around and try to play with her sisters. She has so much fight to her and continues to fight and stay strong. She has defied all odds that have been thrown at her! She was diagnosed with non contagious inflammatory encephalitis in 2014. She was also diagnosed with invasive mammary cancer in December of 2015, but it has not spread as per her chest X-ray in June and no new masses have grown. She has a grade 4 luxating patella and arthritis in her right hip, but surgery is not an option, it’s just maintaining it with supplements and acupuncture. Josie has been giving me a hard time with eating. I thought I had created it myself because she would turn her nose up and she would get something different. She went for her cytosar treatment recently in August. Her neurologist felt really concerned that she wasn’t eating so he suggested blood work. Her blood work came back with an extremely high white blood cell count that was up by 37.9 from her last blood work and an extremely high lymphocyte count of 82%. Her oncologist strongly believes that we are now dealing with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. The good news is that it is treatable! However, we need to get specialized blood work testing done that is sent to the university of Tennessee in order to confirm diagnosis before we can start treatment. She is my warrior princess!! She is strong and teaches me every day what its like to be strong and I feel so blessed to have her love and trust. She hasn’t had the easiest life coming from her background and all her medical issues but she has so much love to give. She has blossomed from this scared, terrified , very fearful dog to this super amazing, loving , trusting, happy, dog.”

Josie is our wonder girl, we feel she has a higher purpose ….. to show others that no matter how many hurdles they face, always have hope and never give up!  Josie is an inspiration and we feel her story needs to be shared.

WE ARE WALKING IN MEMORY OF KIRBY & MAGGIE MAY – SPCA PAUSE FOR A CAUSE!

KIRBY

MAGGIE MAY

MAGGIE MAY

On Sunday, September 11th, we are walking (Maple Ridge location) with our good friends at HYDRO PAWS to fight against animal cruelty.

Let’s fight animal cruelty one step at a time!  Last year, the BC SPCA conducted 10,205 new cruelty investigations. This is a staggering number, and one that continues to rise.

The animals need our help. Donations to the BC SPCA fund cruelty prevention and education programs, and the enforcement of animal cruelty laws. With their team of specially trained constables, the BC SPCA is making strides. But there is still more work to be done.

This fall, our team will be putting our best paws forward to walk with animal-lovers across B.C. to fight animal cruelty. Every dollar raised will help the BC SPCA rescue and care for abused, injured and abandoned animals, and work to prevent cruelty before it occurs.

Please donate if you can or better yet, walk with us! Together we can put our foot down on animal cruelty.

Thank you for your support!

Janet & Eva
