Paws Raised for Mitch

I blew my knee out again this week so today was setting up MRI and perhaps surgery. But please stop in at the blog for

and see the link he put up for Mitch.  Sadly, Mitch made that long crossing to the bridge today. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Hugs and tail wags of support for his family.

    Ouch!!! Take care of that knee... YAM xx

  2. Oh, no! We hope the knee is going to be OK! We are very sad for Mitch's family too.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. We so loved Mitch and are so sorry to hear he has crossed the bridge. He will be very happy to be back with Maggie. Soft woos and gentle hugs to his family from us.

    Woos - Ciara and Lightning

  4. Thank you everyone - knee is resting and hopefully just needs some down time not surgery (the surgery when the meniscus was blown out the first time kept me off my feet six weeks) and I'm not a "sit still" kind of girl. Abby is helping her Dad with a plumbing project while I chill after working all day with what can only be described as a "leg corset" which felt REALLY good to take off.

  5. Oh no! Hope your Mom's knee gets better. We were so sad to hear about Mitch. We were all crying yesterday. And today too! You never forget your doggie angels!

  6. hugs to you such knee-woes are horrible... I hope the dogtor can lower the pain....
    we were very sad that Mitch had to much sorrows and so much tears in blogville...
