Prayers for Maddie

Those of you who are my friends on facebook already know that Maddie was hit by a car today (Saturday afternoon) and has some serious injuries.  She is going to live  but has a long recovery ahead of her.  We are all heartbroken at the state she is in but so grateful that she is ALIVE and will remain with us.  I have taken some photos tonight so that you can see how serious her injuries are and please, please keep her in prayer.  My sweet Maddie means the world to me.  Even when in horrible pain she never lashed out like many dogs do when injured.  She licked the vet while they were caring for her.  She gave kisses while Michele and Adam were binding her wounds.  She  never stopped being the kind, gentle and unconditionally loving dog that she is.  Thank you for adding Maddie to your prayer list.


Almost her entire face is normally white with the exception of her nose and actual eyes, and the outline of her mouth.  As you can see she has big black cuts and bruises all over her face.


Her right eye was missed by just a hair, and we are lucky she still has her right eye without any injuries.  Alongside it is a huge laceration.   This breaks my heart more than anything.


Maddie drinking out of a little bowl we brought to her.  Just seeing her strain so much to drink just tears me up.


You can see all the bruising underneath her legs in the back.  All that black or dark area is bruising.


Her eye laceration is the worst of the injuries.  
Again, thank you for praying.  I can't even imagine life without our sweet Madline.

We prayed for Maddie in children's church today. Poor girl! Just seeing her injuries breaks my heart. We will continue to pray for her and the family.

I remember when this happened to my "baby." She was the same way at the vet's office, giving them kisses while they worked on her, etc. What finally made the dam break and made me start sobbing uncontrollably was when I left the examination room to use the restroom and she strained really hard to turn her head to make sure I was okay wherever I was going. In the middle of all her pain, she was still trying to protect me :o). My girl is nine years old, and it was eight years ago tomorrow that she was hit by a car - today, she is a happy, friendly overgrown puppy that no one in the world would believe is in the "senior dog" classification. Praying for Maddie, that she will have the same results!!!
