Candles and prayers for Doug and Tia

After months of dealing with seizures, Doug has just learned that beloved Old Gold, Tia, has hemangiosarcoma. Their story is in these two threads: http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...-11yr-old.html (Our Seizure Roller Coaster has Begun - 11yr old) and http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...y-so-long.html (I have braced myself for this day for so long). Tia's prognosis is not good at only three months.

Way too many of us know what Doug is dealing with now. I hope you'll join me in holding them in your thoughts and prayers and also lighting a candle to show your support. I know from experience how much this small gesture means to someone struggling with bad news. I also know that this community has worked many miracles before and we need to work another one now.

Group *GRF* Candles - Light A Candle

Prayers for Doug and Tia,
Lucy
