Remembering 9/11, our Cousin, Mia and Mercy

Grammy had put up a post to Remember 9/11 on her Country Grammy's Blog, and meant to post a link to THAT today, but then we heard from her sister, Naunie, that her little Shih Tzu, Mia, had taken the Rainbow Bridge this morning and things got sidetracked.  

We DID get our flag put up in the frontyard for the day, and if you would like to read the 9/11 Tribute that she did, you can go HERE.

Little Mia has been fighting a bad case of Pancreatitis valiantly for the past week, as those of you from our Facebook friends know.  She decided that she needed to take the Rainbow Bridge this morning, and we are very sad for our Auntie, today.  We will see you later, Sweet Little Mia.  Run Free!

Grammy has also been busy taking care of Mercy, who has done something nasty to her nose.  We don't know if it was a spider bite, cat scratch, garter snake bite, or wasp sting (Tarantula Hawks are all over again).  It started off with a bunch of little scratch type marks on top of her nose, but the next day it got a lot worse.

She has to take several medicines (antihistamines and antibiotics) and have it cleaned off and medicated a couple of times a day.  She is eating well and has no fever.  She also had injured her leg the other day, but that is doing well now and she is putting weight on it again.  She will need to go to the vet on Monday if there isn't any improvement on her nose.

We are so sad to read about little Mia.
Poor Mercy's nose, we hope it gets better.
Bailey had a bee sting earlier in the summer on her paw and it was quite nasty but fortunately cleared up quickly.
We are sorry we are so very behind on your blog and hopefully we will be able to catch up!
We too remember the dreadful news of September 11th and find it hard to believe that nine years has passed.
Our mum tells us she remembers every second of hearing the news on the car radio.
Truly awful.

So sad to read about little Mia. We had a friend who lost her pug to that - it is a rough disease. Sandie

Oh Mercy! What a terrible trouble you are having!I hope it is not a MRSA type infection and it gets cleared up fast. We will cross our paws for you! Very sorry your pal went over the bridge. She will find lots of good company there but it is sad.
Big hugs and get better!

Oh my dog. This was such a sad post. And poor Mercy's nose! I bet while she's on antibiotics, she'll be getting the special healing yogurt treats you mentioned today on my blog. :(
I'll email to ask for the recipe, but I also wanted to stop by your blog. I rarely get a chance to do so nowadays and I thought this was a nice opportunity.
