~~~She's Just A Dog, But ~~~

Post by Shirley Shaw » Thu Jun 06, 2013 2:21 pm

Dear Family & Friends, here on Nethugs; Today, I am asking Prayers, for my Akita/Boxer Mix, Sheba...She has been diagnosed with, Pyometra"...(Had Never Heard Of It Before)I can't seem to get her in, anywhere for surgery..She just turned 11 yrs. of age, May 16th....She is in bad way, and needs Surgery, fast ! I cld. not even get our own Vet, to take her in because I had asked Him, to let us make pymt. arrrangements, til I can get my check ! He told us point blank, NO !, because he had been burned, 'too many times';( not by us),cause (We Owe Him Nothing), and he has been our Vet, for 16 yrs., now..But, I guess by others !!! So, in the kindness of their Heart, I met a wonderful Family, on FB, who'se Daughter, just happened to be a Vet..She has sent me Anti-biotics, that arrived today, for Sheba, and I an going to pay them back, as soon as I get my pay..This, to Me, is Truly A Blessing, From God' ! She seems to think the anti-biotics wl. help her, but she still does need ,the surgery..I am Sorry, but I was Abhored, and Appauled, that our own Vet, Dr. Heath Rose, at ,The Raytown Animal Hospital, of 16 yrs, wld., not do Her surgery..He said, it wld. cost@ $600, and I wld. have Paid him back, everyhthing, cause that's how I ws raised ! Plus, my Husband, Charles is supposed to get His Award Letter, from Social-security, in this 1st or 2nd week of June !He has been Approved 100%, Fully-Disabled; have been trying to take care of Him too.. His Money should not B far behind ! We even asked him@that ! I called Him, again, this morning, and Literally, Begged Him, to take her in ! His Words,'I Am Sorry, Shirley", "I Have Paying PPL, Here, with The Money to Pay"..I said, Well, ok., Thank you then, anyway, I just don't want to see my Dog, Suffering, Bleeding badly, and in Pain..I just cannot & Willl Not, Put Her Down ! She had Never been sick, A Day in Her Life ! But, this Pyometra thing, I guess can Be Deadly, and can turn Toxic too....I had exhausted my searchings, everywhere from the side of Missouri, to Kansas..Anyway, Please say Some Prayers, For My Dear, Sheba !I Thank-You All, in Advance ! This Lady Vet, Named, Michelle, (Dr. Mock) ws even going to do her surgery, for us, til we cld. get the money,to pay her back(She Ws Going To Do It For Free), 'Bless Her heart", but I told her, we could Never Do that !, But they live in Springfield, ohio, instead of Springfield, Mo., so I cldn't go that far ! Am Thankful, and Hopeful, that these Anti-Biotices will Help Her ! (Some A Dog Is Just A Dog, But To Me, They R Part Of The Family)....Love & Blessings To All, Pastor Shirley ann shaw~~~~She still acts & behaves like a Puppy !

Dear Eva; Yes, I agree with You, completely..I thought Dr. Rose ws a caring Vet, for Animlas in need, as I have been going to Him, for@16yrs now..But, that's ok...By the ,"Blessings of some Wonderful Friends, on FB., I ws able to get Sheba into surgery, Yesterday,(Praise The Lord)'...She does have the Pyometra..She got in a very bad way, and we were having to help lift Her up, even to the couch...I got down on my hands and knees, and Cried out to God' ! Yes, I did, and we have her in a place called,'Angels', went down to Savannah, Mo...She had her surgery, took her right in..She ws So Bad, that when they did the surgery, it burst on them; ws filled with Pus, & poision toxics..They have saved her, and are keeping her until, Monday..She is doing well, but they want to monitor her, which I really felt better about, anyway...We R trying to make Her, a little ramp, as she won't be able to climb stairs, has to have much rest,etc..She is on some high sedatives & meds, too...They R hopeful that they got All of the poison out of her Body..(I Believe in my heart)Eva, I kept telling Sheba, that we were going to get her some help, somewhere, and I know that God', ws keeping her hanging on, til He cld. Perform His "Miracle Work"...She cldn't eat or drink, either..Among other things too..She ws checked for Heartworms,too,which it turned out, She didn't have, Thank God'..I had Never heard of this Pyometra, in my life, until Sheba got it..We never had her spayed & when I ws growing up, we had so many Dogs & Animlas; never had them spayed, or never even heard of this Parvo thing,until these past few yrs...All of our Pets, lived Long yrs. in Life, so I guess I learned something New, too..I am just So thankful", that she is going to B ok..Thank You, My Dear/Sis/Friend, for all of Your Prayers....I wl. post to FB too; as I ws told there R many Folks, waiting to hear from Me, about Her....I'm hoping that I can find a picture of her, in My Folders too; everyone wants to see a picture of Her ! Thank You again,Dear Sis in The Lord"...Love You Much, Eva.....'God Bless'...Love, Sis/pastor Shirley ann shaw~

Pastor Shirley,
I add my thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
I can feel your inner pain. Sheba was not just a dog, she was part of your family.
I also feel that my animals have always become my own children in many ways.
It breaks my heart to know that she won't be around anymore...
Sheba crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Today is Father's Day. My father is in Heaven too.
God may bless you all!
Peace be with you.
Monica.

Dear Eva; Thank You,Dear..Yes, sure do Miss and Love Her Much..I believe that too ! I believe there is a Heaven', for animals of all kinds; just hard right now..(The Hardest Pt. Ws having To Help My Husband, Charles, Bury Her)...Have Never had to do that Before ! Took her to a place called, 'Animal Haven"; however, You have to do it Yourself, (They will accept them), but if U can't afford a Funeral Service, then U must do it all, Yourself..(That ws Very hard)...I too, Believe that we will all see our Pets, in Heaven", again someday..Thank You for All of Your Prayers too..Much Appreciated..'God Bless"..Love Sis/Pastor shirley shaw~

Hello Dear Monica; Thank You so Much...Our Dogs, and Animals R a part of our Family"....It ws a very hard, Fathers' day, for Charles today..The Hardest part was we took her to, Animal Haven'..They will take them in, but if You don't have the Money for a Funeral, they make U do the whole Burial, Yourself...Never heard of this, in my life ! So, today, early afternoon., Charles and I, had to place her, all by Ourselves...(This ws very Hard); never had to do this before ! I don't know if the Laws have changed up here in Missouri, or not, but we were already torn, and this, This, I cannot even tell you, the Pain....We got through it, but wasn't Easy Task....Thank you, for all of Your Prayers, etc....(Hope I Never Have To Do This Again)....'God Bless"..Love, Sis/Pastor Shirley shaw....
