Dog prayers, please

Please pray for Twinkie, my canine niece. (Yes, my sister puts her in outfits for holidays. I do not condone this practice. This was the only picture I had on the computer, and it's from 2005.)

Twinkie had a run-in with a golf cart today. She's a dog of a certain age, and totally blind. When I talked with my sister this evening, Twinkie had decided to get up and hobble into the bedroom. That was encouraging, but they're not getting their hopes up until the 24-hour mark, which will be tomorrow afternoon.

So, prayers for Twinkie and her family, if you're the praying-for-dogs kind.

Is there Twinkie news?

Twinkie update: She seems not to have internal injuries -- she's eating and drinking and the other two functions that go along with that. But she's hobbling along sideways -- one of her shoulders took a lot of damage, and they haven't decided what to do about that yet. Also pray for my bro-in-law, who was behind the wheel of the golf cart and is beating himself up about what was clearly an accident.

Oh, dear. Puppy and human prayers ascending.

Terrier feist+prayers=hope. And your update about the other two functions is cheering and funny. But your poor Br-in-law--I'll send my feist and hope up for him.

Thanks, all of you... the last update included a bit more improvement. They know her shoulder won't look or function like it did before, but they're just hoping she can get to the point of being pain-free.
