I went to his page today after reading a post by one of our DK family memebers, Sally. Sally's insirational story is "Week 2" but while there, I clicked on "Week 1" as well. Made me think of you and Anny.
Heidi, One of DK's very active members also suffers from CF, Jennifer and Jack. Jenn is an inspiration to many of us as she posts encouragingly and hopefully about living life to the fullest. I hope and pray your sweet friend Anny gets her transplant soon. My husband's sister died of CF at 12. It is a vicious disease. Thank you for posting this story and raising money for your friend. (I will donate as soon as my daughter gets up. She has a paypal account and I don't.)
Heidi! We got your card today and it brought big smiles and laughter to my DH and I. Even Libby was wagging her tail when we showed it to her! Love the card and love Mr. Milton. Thanks so much:) I love this card exchange and all the Doodles who are absolutely the cutest doggies ever:)
Hoping you are figuring out how best to take care of Milton with this new development in his neutering surgery. I'm sorry this has been such a worry. Your relationship with this sweet boy is lovely, and I am sure you will be grateful to have this ordeal behind you. Please keep us updated on who does the surgery and how it goes.
Heidi, here's an older discussion that may interest you, posted by another doodle mom who felt uncomfortable about neutering her male doodle puppy. That was the way she expressed it- "uncomfortable"- not "hurting him" or "like a human lobotomy" or "extremely unnatural". She found my response "very helpful", although it was basically the same as the advice I gave you. It's all in the way you say it, as you know:
Hi again. That is exactly how it works. You will sed out cards to all members on your list and you will be receiving cards from all those members. It's really fun going to get mail each day to see how many cards have arrived. I think this will be our sixth year of doing this and we really look forward to it each year. I hope you decide to join!
