If you pray for dogs...

Spring Break7 (1 of 1) Spring Break8 (1 of 1)
I am sure there are plenty of people that might think it a little crazy to pray for a dog. However, I know that God tells us to pray in all things and I know that because He loves us He cares for the things we care for. So...if you are one of those people who would be willing to pray for a dog we could use a few prayers for ours. Our sweet black lab mix, Indy, isn't doing so great. He's eight and a half years old and he has arthritis. Worse than that though is that he has a bone chip in one of his elbows. The combination is not good. It's been about a year now and he's gone through times that have been very bad and there have been times when he has rebounded quite well. Right now isn't such a great time. We accidentally ran out of his anti-inflammatory medication a few weeks ago and he went a few days without it. Previous to that he seemed great...no limping, able to go one walks, etc... but after a few days without the medication his elbow swelled up huge. Even though he's been back on the medication for a while now the swelling is still significant and because he doesn't like to bear much weight on it the joint has gotten really stiff. We just need to get the swelling down so that he can start walking again to loosen it up. We are trying a new supplement in addition to his medication and we are hoping this will help. I know it might sound kind of silly, but he's our baby and other than difficulty walking he is healthy and happy and it just kills me to watch him limp around. So...if you are the kind of person to pray for a dog would you pray that the swelling in his leg would go down and that he would be able to start walking and bending his joint again. Thanks friends!
