MEET BB KING …. our newest recipient from the Maggie May Fund!

BB King is a 6 year old Pomeranian, (photo to come). When we were approached for financial assistance by the the animal hospital (whom we have worked with before, and who have once again discounted their fees for those in need), they described BB as “a really sweet dog”, that they wanted to help. The guardian, an elderly gentleman was very upset that his boy was not well and did not have the funds for the medical care BB so desperately needed.  Of course, we would help!  BB King required dental surgery with extractions. We have yet to receive a photo, but have been promised one very soon.  BB is doing well, his guardian is very grateful to all involved in helping him.

MEET DIESEL … our newest recipient from the Maggie May Fund

6 year old, Warrior Diesel, as he is affectionately called, suffered a fractured elbow from a fall. Diesel was seriously injured, and was taken to the emergency animal hospital. His guardian was devastated once notified and distraught as to what to do. She just couldn’t lose him. There were so many involved in getting Diesel the help he needed, the hospitals, the case worker and us. We are respecting the privacy of Diesel’s guardian, and are unable to provide further details.  The reports from the hospital say he was resting comfortably while waiting surgery, and described as a very sweet boy.

 

Today we are excited to have received these photo’s of Warrior Diesel, he is home now with his guardian, and doing awesome.

We couldn’t be happier!  Have a happy life Diesel!

PRESENTING OUR …. 2019 6th ANNIVERSARY QUILT “SWEET KISSES”

We have named this years anniversary quilt “SWEET KISSES”.  No matter, if its a quick lick on the cheek, or a nose rub, or a slobbery french kiss, its all about the undeniable love our pets have for us humans. How empty our lives would be without them.

We are dedicating our quilt to the furry friends we have lost this year …. Rainier, Maddison, Cubby, Squirt, Elijah, Jiggs, Annie, Dudley & Diesel. Forever loved and forever missed.

Our quilt includes the fabrics and names from our personalized blanket orders between May 1, 2018 to April 30, 2019. This gives us time to design, create, and have it professionally quilted in time for the reveal on September 12th. We will once again raffle it off on our anniversary October 11th, the anniversary of Maggie’s crossing over the rainbow bridge, with all proceeds going to the Maggie May Fund.

We have 32 names on 25 blankets, and this year they include: Buster, Jedi, Fender, Peppi, Sparky & Rose, Taco, Rainier, Seeker, Hyper, Whiski, Cubby, Fysti, Fender, Phoenix & Dakota & Solo & Levi, Jasper & Willy & Flurry, Cali, Perka, Momma Bee, Sloan, Terry, Penny, Jackie, Dallas, Jiggs & Annie, & Deacon

Our amazing friend Tammy of Sugar Town Quilting Co, in Cranbrook who once again donated her time and cost to professionally quilt our creations. We were also late again getting the quilt to Tammy but she did it right away for us and we got it back just in time for us to finish by reveal. Tammy has quilted all our anniversary quilts, and it’s her beautiful work that makes our quilt that much more special.

MEET TIGGER … the newest recipient from the Maggie May Fund!

TIGGER – August 2019

Tigger is a lovable Shihtzu Mix, adored by his Dad, but desperately needed medical attention. He needed tumors and cysts removed as soon as possible.

 

 

 

Once again, the veterinarian stepped up to plate, we were contacted, and together we were able to give Tigger a new leash on life!  He received the surgery he needed a few weeks ago and has just been back to the vet for his checkup.  As you can see, he is doing great, happy, smiling, and loving life, with his very grateful Dad.

The heart feels good!

Thank you for support, without you, we can’t do what we do!

DUDLEY … RIP, forever loved!

Dudley is described by his Mum as “the best dog ever! He carries his own leash and knows all his toys by name, he knows exactly what to do to cheer me up. When a growth appeared on his neck, he was still a big beautiful happy go lucky dog. I can’t lose him..he is my everything.  I have nothing without him in my life.”

Dudley, was originally diagnosed with a neck mass/abscess, the prognosis was good to excellent after surgery.  However, the mass was growing and beginning to restrict his breathing. We stepped in to help Dudley and his Mum. He was all set for surgery and we were all looking forward to success and a healthy future for Dudley. But, moments before surgery, it was cancelled, the pre-surgery tests revealed cancer throughout his body.  There was nothing they could do. Dudley went home with medications to keep him comfortable.

We were all devastated when we got the news.  We spoke with Dudley’s Mum daily during this time, providing support and encouragement, we knew she would know when the right time would come to let him go. A week later Dudley crossed the Rainbow Ridge, forever loved and never ever forgotten.

We haven’t faced this before at IMOMM, but we have all experienced loss, time does heal, we all grieve in our own way, at our own pace, and we truly understand the heartbreak. Our hearts go out to Dudley’s Mum, and although Dudley is no longer with us, he will always be a part of the Maggie May Family.

RIP Dudley, July 2019

A custom creation for Brodie, with the prints specially selected by his Aunt, his one of  kind MM Blanket arrived on Friday.  Brodie says thank you Aunt Carmen  and Uncle Chris  for his blanket, and we thank you for supporting the Maggie May Fund.

MEET BRUISER …. our newest recipient from the Maggie May Fund!

This is a story of people working together to get a sweet boy named Bruiser and his Mum the help they needed.

Bruiser is a senior who needed major dental surgery to lengthen his life, but you see, they, for the first time in their lives have been homeless, with no place to go and financially no way of paying for the surgery.  The outreach worker stepped in to find them help and a home. The veterinarian felt compelled to help in whatever way they could, and when we were approached for assistance, there was no question we would help too.

 

Bruiser, has been by his Mum’s side all his life, he is the main reason she keeps fighting every day and she doesn’t know where she would be without him. After being homeless for 3 months, the outreach worker found them a home, and a few weeks ago Bruiser had his surgery!  Bruiser and his Mum are doing well, Bruiser is healing and a happy boy again. His Mum is so very appreciative of all the help they received and sent us all beautiful cards of thanks.

 

His Mum wanted us to share a bit of her story to help spread awareness about homelessness. No matter what anyone’s situation is, a pet brings so much more to us humans than words can ever explain! Every life matters!

Your support enables us to help those like Bruiser and his Mum and we all thank you!
