Positive Thoughts for Foxy

August 1, 2011

My dear friends, I am not a terribly religious person. I was raised Catholic, but I am not currently a devout member of any kind of organized religion.

I do, however, believe there is a higher power. The details of which I am not so certain, nor do I wish to be. Yet, be it God, Jesus, the saints, the universe or just Grandmother Willow, I ask you all to please pray, send good thoughts or good wishes to my poor little Foxy.

My darling pup had kennel cough which turned in pneumonia and now could be influenza or distemper. She has been in the hospital since Friday and I had to take her to the emergency vet before that. She has improved a little bit, but still won’t eat. I have only had her since July 12th, but I am attached. She is precious and I love her, so although she is currently costing me a fortune, the universe told me today that I need to keep trying. We have a wonderful vet, but even so there is that chance that she may not pull through and just thinking about that breaks my heart.

So please keep her in your thoughts and/or prayers. St. Francis is the Patron Saint of animals and I have a prayer to him and one to whichever Lord you believe in, if you would say them for Foxy. It is a Novena if you say one of the prayers for nine consecutive days.

Prayer for a Sick Pet

Heavenly Father,
Please help us in our time of need,
You have made us stewards of Foxy.
If it is Your will, please restore her to health and strength.
I pray too for other animals in need.
May they be treated with the care and respect deserving of all Your creation.
Blessed are You Lord God, and holy is Your name for ever and ever.
Amen.
 

Prayer to Saint Francis for our Pets

Good St. Francis, you loved all of God’s creatures.
To you they were your brothers and sisters. 
Help us follow your example of treating every living thing with kindness.
St Francis, Patron Saint of animals, watch over my pet (Foxy) and keep my companion safe and healthy.
Amen
