    4.5 years later-Nikata the wonder pup! See #54.

    I have a special PT Prayer request. Dear friends, Jimmy, and his wife Mary Beth are going through a really rough time and things just got worse. For over a year MB has been badly handicapped with Lupus and other complications; Jimmy's tile work has been spotty, their finances are not good, but they're managing. Jimmy's Mom (a dear, dear, woman) was diagnosed with cancer, and passed away last weekend. It was expected, but still...

    Now, the latest: their sweetheart of a dog, Nikata (border collie/aussie mix), just the BEST dog, is badly injured. She was outside yesterday, they have a long lead since MB can't walk her anymore, and MB heard her yelp. Nikata was laying in the driveway; she evidently ran for something and severely injured her spine in the cervical region. The first 48 hours are key. Please send up BIG PRAYERS for a great dog; please?

    HUGE prayers are there! Wow, just when things can't get worse...

    I hope Nikata recovers quickly...they need her and she needs them.

    Prayers for the sweet dogger. First time I've prayed and asked Miss Sasha to keep watch.

    Prayers for Nikata, Jimmy, and Mary Beth. What a lot to be contending with all at once. May Nikata recover fully from her spinal injury.

    Prays coming. Tell them to look into UAN or other places that will help with vets bills for them.

    Update - prayers still needed!

    I just talked to the Animal Hospital where Nikata is; there is essentially no change. She's not getting up on her own, she's stable, and alert. There is no decision being made until tomorrow. They're trying to keep her quiet and comfortable to help heal. Thank you all - keep up the prayer chain - tomorrow's crucial!!

    I also talked to them about finances; I'm going to get all our friends to take care of this bill, it'll be a whopper and they don't need it. We'll handle it; there's a bunch of us that love Nikata!!

    Prayers for Nikata and the entire family. Hopefully the PT prayers and well wishes will work the miracle that we all know is possible.

    What wonderful friends - to pay the vet expenses. That's awesome Maggie.
