Dogs rule, as do you.

As many of you know, Sola suffered a throat injury from a stick with a hidden agenda. Come to think of it, that sounds a bit like prom night, so you may want to go here for context if you did not catch up with us last week.

First, let me apologize – the crush of comments, e-mail, and messages on Facebook offering wishes for Sola’s speedy recovery have been humbling, and it is impossible for me to reply to individual messages at this point because of the sheer volume. Dog lovers are a different breed indeed, and I could not be more thankful for the outpouring of support.

Now to answer the big question. Sola is on the mend. In fact, the vets were amazed at how quickly she is healing (more on that in a future post). Considering the extent of her injury I am as well. I can only attribute her speedy recovery to the tremendous care and love Mrs. Author has besotwed upon her, and the positive vibes flying our way from well-wishers near and far.

A bit of that healing love came to us in the form of a generous care package sent by one of our close new friends, Chester’s Mom. I was blown away to come home to a box overflowing with goodies for the critters. A hilarious letter (see photo above) hinted at the contents (which Sola should be ready to attack in the next few days).

Chester, something tells me that when Sola has recovered, she’ll be booking a Greyhound ticket to PA to come thank you personally. You may want to check your Blackberry 😉

My sincerest thanks to all. If I have not replied to any of your messages I will try to get to them, but know that we remain in your debt. Because in the end, it’s all about the dogs.

  1. Hooray, I’m so glad to hear she’s doing well. Dogs rock and so do dog people. Your blog is great, I always love reading it.

    Kisses and a little sneaky people food to Sola from Boston.

  2. So glad you liked the care package. The timing was coincidentally good considering the rough week you all had. The addition of the bully STICKS was not meant to be bad humor. They too were a coincidence. Just be sure to downsize them to make sure no one in the family carries a whole stick in their mouth, even Mr. Author. ;0=)

    Happy High Fives to hear Sola is on the mend.
    Woofs and ecstatic slobbers,

  3. Great news that Sola continues to heal well. Hope he is appropriately making his human dad feel bad for all of the trouble caused with a simple toss of a stick. The Herd are masters at limping after some injury, even if they forget to do it all of the time or even use the right paw. Just going for the sympathy.

  4. So happy to hear Sola is healing nicely. Dog lovers are a special breed, I got so many comments and emails after I lost Benny, it was very comforting to know there are people who understand how much my dogs mean to me.

  5. Hey, be sure that Sola and Chester are Sexting! arrf arrf ruff [wagging tail]

    My three are sending doggie felt warm fuzzies to help Sola with her recovery. It’s scary when are furry friends are sick or hurt. ♥ ∞
