My Friend Ollie

I had been away from Facebook and my blog for about 5 days now, and today when I finally logged in, my heart sank a bit.  My Facebook friend, Ollie Doodle, got some upsetting news.  I wrote a few times about Ollie back in November, and kept you updated along the way.  Well, yesterday Ollie went for a follow up/review of his major surgery back in November.  The news wasn't great.  He is accumulating fluid in his chest cavity once again.  They believe it's the same troublesome fluid as before.  It is building up more slowly, but nonetheless, it's still there.  Ollie and his family are in good spirits, but we all can imagine what that news would feel like.  He is awaiting his vet to contact the specialist to see if anything more can be done.  Whatever the outcome, I would love to be able for his mom to see lots of prayers and good wishes here.  I know the POTP is a strong force to be reckoned with and I would sure appreciate it.  I know it makes me feel better to know there is an entire world of dog lovers behind him, so I can just imagine it must help his family too.  Hug your pups and give thanks for their good health and happiness.  I know I am.

Ollie posted on 1/16/13: "Thank you everyone for the good wishes. I am very happy and I feel great at present, I intend to continue living life to the max. I am so happy and loved and have absolutely everything I need.
We knew that the odds were not good, and this could happen when I had my op, we just hoped that we would get longer before it reoccurred. I am lucky, the fluid is accumulating at a much slower rate.......
It was just a such a shock to have it confirmed yesterday."

  11. Ollie and his brother, Oscar, are friends of ours on facebook. Even though we've never met in person/dog, we feel as though we've known him all his life. Ollie is always there with a witty comment and is such a wise chap.

    We're asking St. Francis, the patron saint of animals, as well as St. Martin de Porres, who is the patron saint of veterinarians, to watch over Ollie and his medical team.

    XOXO from Earl and Floyd Schnoodle
