Open call for kindness

Lloyd the Dog in a favorite spot

Lloyd is having a very tough night. He's having a hard time breathing and his gums have lost a lot of color. We have administered some emergency meds, the call at the moment is to try to get him to sleep tonight so he can go to the nearby vet in the morning. Otherwise it's well over an hour to Ithaca and he just doesn't seem up to that.

We are hoping that he's just having a spell -- a not uncommon occurence for patients in his condition. Whatever the case, we will do what is best for him, no matter how tough it might be for us. We love him so very much and if you know him, you do, too. He's just that kind of a guy.

So Lloyd, Karen and I could use your prayers, kind thoughts and any good karma you can spare.

Thanks so much.
