While I worried for Ke-ola today it was also a day of positives for us. We are so grateful to Michelle and Joe from I.C.A.R.E for getting us some wonderful goodies for Ke-ola. Tomorrow he'll have his beautiful new collar and snazzy lead. Thank you for the support. Pet Hospital called to see how Ke-ola was feeling today. They were so kind and encouraging. I was very grateful for the call. I try to keep a positive attitude towards Ke-ola's recovery but he is so very sick that sometimes the fear takes over. I don't want to feed that energy so I try to share positive things. But today I felt quite overwhelmed thinking of Ke-ola and what his life was like before I met him. He is such a special soul.

When I looked at Ke-ola today, struggling so hard to stay alive and to get healthy all I could think of was, "What is wrong with us?" (I'm referring to "us" as the human race) This dog has a heart of gold. He is kind, loving, loyal, understanding, patient. What more could anyone want from another living being? I couldn't help but wonder what his story is. I found myself asking so many questions. Did you ever have a loving home and a boy or girl to call your own? Has anyone ever shown you kindness? How old were you when you ended up on the streets of Carson? How did you get all these scars? Ke-ola just gazed up at me with his soft beautiful almond eyes and erased all my questions but one. How can I help you to know you are loved and wanted?
|Who loves belly rubs?|
Kadante stepped up immediately with Ke-ola's favorite thing…belly rubs.
He didn't finish his lunch today. He was dealing with coughing and trying to breath so I think he was tired. Ke-ola heard the gentlemen that care for our garden in our backyard. Getting up is not easy for him right now but once he heard someone in our backyard he sprang to his feet ran to the window and barked then coughed and barked then coughed until I took notice of him. Kadante began to pet him and his barking stopped but his coughing got worse. I couldn't believe he expended so much of his precious energy to protect my sons and I, especially after such a short time with us. This boy never ceases to amaze me.
He is still puddling in the house but thankfully, no mountains today. Hurray! I need to count my blessing big and small. Paws crossed he finishes the rest of his dinner.
Wishing you and your pack Peace, today and everyday. Thank you for visiting.
