Prayers from Friends

Sweet Angel Chelsea!

As many of our readers and friends know, Little Chelsea is going into FHO surgery this Monday to fix her broken/dislocated leg. After that, the journey really begins. Her recovery will take 6-8 months. If you haven’t read about her surgery, you can do so here. We are looking forward to getting it fixed so Chelsea can live a healthy pain-free life!

We would like to thank everyone who has offered support, encouragement, prayers and donations during this time from the bottom of our hearts. You all are truly wonderful and we are so blessed to have you as family and friends. We are so happy to share with you all the funds for Chelsea’s surgery have been raised!!!!

Today, we would love to thank a few of our very special friends who have shared Chelsea’s story throughout their own communities, blogs and websites. Thank you, Bongo! Thank you, Collies of the Meadow!Β Thank you, Uptown Dog! We are very grateful for your support and words cannot express how much your prayers and support mean. Thank you for being such great friends!

If you don’t know these guys, you have to check them out! In addition to being wonderful, caring friends, they all have awesome blogs that are among our favorites πŸ™‚

Jump over to Bongo Dog Blog to say hello to Bongo and his family, including cat, Scratchy. Bongo is a hilarious pup who shares cool pictures and stories of his adventures with his Person (and occasionally Scratchy). They like to do all sorts of stuff, like hiking and jogging on nature trails. Thank you, Bongo for your awesome post about Chelsea. We loved reading everyone’s words of encouragement!

If you haven’t spent some time visiting with Chuck and his crew of 12 Collies at Collies of the Meadow, you are missing out. This big loving bunch is always up to something and their Dad, Chuck, shares beautifully written stories about his Collies of past, present and future. Chuck and the Collies also share some funny stories and gorgeous photos, so make sure to pay them a visit! Thank you, Chuck and the Collies for your prayers and such a touching post about our little girl. We are blessed to have you as friends!

Uptown Dog helped us campaign during our fundraising efforts by posting regularly to Twitter about little Chelsea. Uptown Dog is an adorable rescue pup living in NYC—Uptown Dog and Chelsea even have the same ears: one up/one down πŸ™‚ We don’t think it can get much cuter. Skip over to this blog to catch up with Uptown Dog. You’ll find adorable photos, posts to make you smile and even some doggy awareness stuff! Thank you Uptown Dog for all your support during our fundraising efforts; it means so much to us!

We’re looking forward to sharing Chelsea’s journey with you as we navigate through this. Thankfully, Chelsea is strong-willed and has the support of her family, friends, even complete strangers! Please continue your prayers for Chelsea as she goes through surgery and recovery. We’ll keep you updated!

Thank you for the prayers and support! It means so much to our family!
