Put Your Paws Together For The Luke

Bunny here with a short note today.  We usually save Wednesdays to be wordless, and we do have a wordless post up today, too, but I have something important to say, so I decided to slip a few words in anyway.  I do hope you all understand.

Back in the second week of November, we were stunned when we found out that my sister, Blueberry, had cancer.  We really thought it would just be a silly little knot on her head that we'd joke about later.  Of course you all know that it didn't turn out to be a silly knot -- it was a serious knot with cancer in it.  Before we knew Blueberry had any of those cells inside her, we were cheering on our friend The Luke as he fought his brave battle with cancer.  By the time he'd finished his last treatment, we were cheering for him because it gave us hope that Blue would beat her cancer, too. 

If you know The Luke, you know that he's a fun loving Golden Retriever with a big heart for his mom and his brother, The Bleu.  He faces all the challenges in life with a quiet dignity and courage that we all admire here.  Whether it's scary storms, fighting cancer, or just putting up with the mystery narrator following him around with the camcorder, he takes it all in stride.  He's one of our heros!

We just learned that The Luke may not be done fighting his battle with cancer.  His mom is probably just beside herself.  I was just hoping that maybe you'd all offer The Luke the Power of the Paw that has made us feel so uplifted in the last weeks.  If you would drop him a line and let him know you're thinking of him and saying a little prayer or wishing on a star for him, I think it would make him feel a lot better!

To The Luke, we're thinking of you and have our paws crossed for the very best for you!  We know that you can beat the cancer and that the Love Protocol will help conquer all things.  Remember that we're cheering for you and that we admire you tons for what a brave and wonderful boy you are!

  2. We are thinking of the Luke too! We hope he keeps fighting the disease!

  3. Thanks for telling us about Team Luke. We'll be cheering him on and hoping the Power of the Paw does its stuff again.
    The LOTH sends lots of love to his mummy xxx

  4. Song and I are sending Luke positive healing thoughts and huge hugs.

  5. I'll keep Luke and Blueberry in my thoughts and hope for healing and wellness in the new year.

  6. We are headed over there to send our Power of the Paw prayers to Luke. Oh, Mom said she is only attempting human cookies once. She said no wonder it had been 20 years since she baked cookies. Hee Hee. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and Santa Paws brings you everything and then some. The HoundDogs and Mom

    P.S. What did you think of Frankie's own snowman post....

  12. Yikes. I am definitely on Team Luke as well. How disheartening to think it is all over, only to have to begin the struggle all over again. Luke sounds like a wonderful and strong fellow. Hugs to him and his family. I will be thinking of them.

  13. We are pulling as hard as we can for Luke. You know how we feel about the evil "C". Sadly we heard this morning that another of our good furiends has crossed. Just so very sad.

  17. Great post. We're praying for The Luke!!

    Hopeful wags,

  18. Hey Bunny!
    Great post about Luke and fighting those nasty sickies. I saw a post this morning about a blog that is collecting comments at 50 cents each to go to doggie cancer research. Soooo I commented right away. I have been bouncing all over doggie bloggie land and I can't remember which blog this was, but I'm sending those healing vibes to Blueberry and Luke.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  19. To everyone, both animal and human, going through treatments, our thoughts and love are with you.

  20. Me and mom are just all sorts of worried about the Luke. He is just the most special boy and I know he means the whole wide world to his The Mom. We continue to keep our paws crossed and send pawsitive thoughts to him across the miles.

    Gentle wiggles & wags,

  21. Good thoughts for your friend
    Not naughty, but nice,
    Benny & Lily

  22. Hi Bunny! I will pray for sweet Luke! And for sweet Blueberry!
