My Concern about Mercy

Saturday, December 10, 2011

A lot of you know that my little Yorkie Mercy is my service dog and goes everywhere with me except to sterile operating rooms. The last few days, she has been bleeding from her bowels. Today I took her to the vet -- wanted to take her before but the regular vet has been unable to get to the office since his truck was stolen. The substitute vet is a nice young woman who examined Mercy gently and took the stool sample I had brought with me back to be tested for parasites. None, so Mercy is now taking antibiotics.

My son had asked me before I left for the vet, "what if nothing can be done?" Well, since she is 13, I have been realizing that the time may come when I do have to part with her and let her go to the Rainbow Bridge. I don't like thinking about it, but it is certainly in the back of my mind. I said to my son, that if she had any quality of life, then I would give her longer, but if she loses all quality of life, I will have to do the best for her since she is not a human and she doesn't understand about the source of pain. God will be happy to welcome her. And yes, I do believe there will be animals in heaven.

For those of you who do pray for pets, please pray for Mercy's healing.

    Did you ever find out what is causing the bleeding? Dogs I know can get Cancer? I just wonder what you are dealing with? I do will pray for her healing and die free of illness of a good old age. You are right no matter how much we love our pets they die one day. Death comes to all of us weather we be human or animal. Goodbyes are all ways hard. Hope God grants Mercy, as many dog years as possible.

    Don't know anything about Yorkies, but praying for you and Mercy. I'd be heartbroken if my beagle were hurting.

    I am praying for Mercy! I have two Yorkies [8 yrs. old]. Have had Yorkies for I guess 25+years. Other dogs before that. May be she has hemorrids. My one dog does.

    Keep that chin up, I'm not giving up on her yet.

    So sorry to hear about Mercy. These animals sure do get us attached to them, don't they? I will pray that the source of the problem is discovered and there is a remedy. If there is not to be one, that she won't be in any pain and that you would feel God's love and peace and comfort during a difficult time. Hang in there!

    Hi, Nellie! I love animals too, and I know how close we can be to them. I am praying for Mercy - she is God's creature and He loves her! Hope it's nothing serious and she is better soon!

    Peace, my friend! Hugs! Marge

    aw nellie i lost my sevice dog george about 4 years ago..he was a borfer collie and 18 and i'd had him the whole 18 years and trained him myself..i have hunted for some time for another service type dog and never found the right one..i gave up and several weeks ago hello dolly came into my life she was rescued from a breeder and is four and has had litter after littler of puppies and been in a cage for her full four years..she is afraid of the world but i came home with her because i realizzed that really i didn't need another service dog and i was going to be content with just companionship sorry i waited so long looking for something to replace george when i could have just had another dog and been happy with someone to wait on and talk to
    my george is up there waiting and i believe he is on the other side welcoming all the newcomers for sure because that's how he was
    blessings upon you
