A very special request

Dear Friends
We have a very special request.  Some of may know about our big Aussie buddy Rory (the great dane) and how he had s spinal embolism that caused his not to be able to walk and scared his Mom and Dad and sister dog Stella half to death (he is now getting better thanks to all their loving care)

Well a couple of days before that happened back in December it also happened to our Dad's niece Andrea. She is a very beautiful 15 year old and basically lost all movement from the neck down when it happened. It occurred very quickly - she was at school and suddenly got a bad headache and by time she got to nurses office she could barely stand. They call her Mom and by time she got the school she could barely move at all and they rushed her to the hospital. She spent Christmas in hospital and then was moved to a rehab hospital where she has been slowly been getting some movement back.

Now Andrea is also legally blind....(although she can see a little) and just before Christmas she also got her first ever little dog who she has been missing a lot. So we thought we would ask all our dog blogging and other buddies if they would send her card each to cheer her up. That is all - just a simple card. If you would like to paw-it-forward then please email us at the link to the right -----------------------------------------> if you would like to send her a card and we will give you her mailing address. We do ask one special thing.....please write your message BIG so she can read it easily.  So come on pals - lets get those paws busy and make one very special, beautiful and brave young girls day a lot brighter :)
