She's Coming Around.....

To those who have had Harley in their prayers...THANK YOU!

It's been a week since, I had taken her to vet. A week of sadness and grief. A week of pondering over a decision that I did not want to make. A week of prayers. Its may be too soon to rejoice, but a miracle is in the works. Harley is coming around!

All last week, Harley seemed to be knocking on death's door. Laying on the floor next to the bed, practically unable to walk. She was very weak, short of breath, listless, lifeless, and didn't want to eat. A visit the vet confirmed a low red blood cell count and may need surgery. Unable to afford treatment, I resigned myself to lose Harley for good.

As I was getting closer to deciding to bring Harley in for her final visit to the vet, a miracle happened! She met me at the door wagging her tail! Just like she used to do all the time! I cried tears of joy.... Slowly, but assuredly she is progressing. She is now eating like normal, walking about on her own and "bugging" me for affection.

She may not be at 100%. She's still weak at times, but she seems to be getting better. I know that I shouldn't get my hopes up to high, but SOME hope is definitely better than none....

How wonderful! I'm not a dog lover myself but this post gave me a very warm feeling. I do hope it ends well. Good luck!

I pray every day for her and also for you to have the strength to get through this. And I hope this is a miracle for both of you. I check with Cheri every day on her. Janette

I have never owned a dog, but my sister has them. I saw how much they become part of the family. Her dog's name was Harley too. A golden retriever. I hope things turn around and all is well soon.

I hope she gets better and better . We have a dog named Bella we rescued 2 years ago and we love her to bits. I know if it was Bella in that situation and she had a miraculous turnaround like that I would be tearfully grateful. So glad to hear news like this. A good dog is like nothing else in this world.
