puck needs a new knee

One of the gang needs a little help. Etta, from Depression Marathon, has a beautiful lab named Puck. He’s her running/training buddy, and bless his heart, she’s run him in the ground. He’s only seven years young and certainly has many good days left. He needs an operation though, and that doesn’t come cheap. Etta needs our help to cover the cost and I for one think it’s a wonderful cause. If it weren’t for my pets I’d have blown my brains out years ago. I’ve been fortunate to have people (Mom and Grandmom) protect me and them from the horrors of this world. I can only imagine the hurt and fear Etta feels with her buddy’s life on the line.

So if you love dogs and people that love dogs click over and read a little about Puck. Make a donation if you’ve got a couple bucks to spare. It’ll make you feel good. Puck and Etta will really appreciate it.

    Karma, man, karma. Gotta help the pups, they do keep us sane. Ever hear of Robert E. Howard, pulp author, Conan, let’s just say he felt the same way about his dog……….

    She’s such a good friend. I’ll see what I can dump out of the ol’ piggy bank. We do need to keep lifting each other up.

    You are so kind, PJ. Thank you so much. Long day today. Long surgery. Quiet house tonight, which is probably why I am still awake rather than sleeping! Hoping he makes it thru the night in the hospital without too much pain and discomfort, and I hope someone is there WITH him! Should be able to come home tomorrow sometime, but he will be in quite a bit of discomfort for a week or so. I will update my blog, perhaps with photos and everything, tomorrow.
    Thanks again PJ, Michelle, and Misterbooks for the kind words. This has been tough.

If you're interested in reading a fairly detailed account of addiction and depression, Cracked Head Memoirs might be for you. It basically tells how it was and what happened. Writing it helped me go from active addiction to recovery yet again.
