Can I Get Some Power of the Paw for a Friend?

CoCo, a very sweet Great Dane of my aquaintance is very sick in the hospital right now. Some of you met her in my post about the Doggy Expo we were both at in June. Her Mom works with both my Moms and both she and CoCo's Daddy are torn up about this.

CoCo and her Mom, feeling great just last month
  I should tell you that the VET says it's all going to be OK. What happened was, she stopped eating and then over the weekend she got weak and her legs couldn't support her and the long and short of it is that she was diagnosed with Addison's Disease. The VET says that now that they know what's wrong she can be treated and will have to have maintenance meds once a month, but she'll be all right. But she's not there yet, and that's where the Power of the Paw comes in. She has to get her strength back.  CoCo is not a blogging dog, but if you could all just think some pawsitive vibes  for her to get better fast so she can be back home with her family  - well, it couldn't possibly hurt, right?


  1. Oh ABSOLUTELY...we got hers covered in our thoughts as well...along withs her family too. My mum has a spot spot fur Danes soooo nuff said.
    Please tell Coco's mom and dad that we be sending our most feirce doxie vibes to them and we hope hers gets betters real soon.
    PLEASE keep us updated withs her recovery.

    PEES: i knew hers sweet face soon as I saw her pikture.

  2. A Bondsman...WHY DIDN"T I thinks of dat. You is a clever one Miss Lola...must put dat on my agenda.


  3. You got it, Lola. Addison's is very manageable once they get the meds figured out. We will cross our paws for your friend Coco to do well.

  9. Anything for a fellow doggie! Sending lots of prayers and pawsitive vibes. PLEASE keep us updated. I hear Addison's can be treated with medicine and the doggie will be in great shape! There's a yahoo group for support, if CoCo's mom is interested.

    Hopeful wags,

  11. You are a good friend, Lola! We are sending prayers and best wishes to CoCo!

  12. I learned this in psychology class in high school. I guess they did this experiment where people thought about a random dish of plants, and they didn't think about the other plant. And the one they thought about flourished. And they did this with human experiments too (the person didn't even know they were being thought about). Anyway, we'll be thinking so hopefully this means a good recovery.

  13. We will keep all our paws crossed for Coco

  14. Power to the paw. I think all will be okay - one of my rescue brothers had Addisons and once the meds got goin all was right in the world. But is sure is scary until then.

  15. We are sending over our best and strongest power of the paw EVER for your friend to get betters.

  16. We're sending positive vibes all the way across the Pond. We know about Addison's disease 'cos my 'cousin' Izzy (Gail's brother's dog, a standard poodle) also suffers. It does seem to be something that the vets know how to treat, so we can hope for a good outcome for Coco.
    Toodle pip!

  17. I'm sending positive vibes right now. the power of the paw will win though.
