Harvey added to Sponsored Dogs

August 19th, 2014 · No Comments



Harvey is our first dog as adults. We never expected he’d feel like our first child, our best of best friends, the love of our lives. He’s gentle, soulful, his spirit strong and personality almost human. He gives kisses like they’re water he’s gotta unload from a sinking ship. He’s a total mush and flirts and cuddles with anyone that’ll allow it. He attracts attention everywhere: “What a handsome dog!” “such a perfect boy!” And yet it’s WE who have the privilege of receiving his love each day, with no expectation of anything in return.

The day we learned Harvey had thyroid cancer was the most devastating day of our lives. Cancer? How could it be? It’s our Harvey and God wouldn’t do that. It’s not fair. But then we put away the pity party and decided we would not let this disease take our son. We would fight it out of him, because it has no business being in such a sweet soul to begin with.

So we have fought, are fighting, and will continue to fight, despite financial hardship. Because of your support, we will get more days with Harvey, more years (God-willing), memories, smiles, laughter, and oh so many more kisses.

As I type this he trots up to me and puts his face to mine for a kiss. He knows we’re fighting this. I know in my heart that we’ll never love another dog the way we love Harvey, and we’ll do everything we can to make sure he has a long, healthy, happy, QUALITY life with us. We rescued him once, THANK YOU for helping us rescue him again. He has been an absolute blessing to us and those that meet him. May God continue to wrap him in blessings as he fights this battle against cancer.

May God wrap you in blessings for helping us fight it.
