Yesterday Molly's Back in My Garden
Do dogs get the same diseases as people? Have you heard of dogs with heart failure, diabetes, kidney failure, cancer, lupus or another diseases? I have and sad to say too common in both. Today it’s Molly, our precious dog, writing this article.
Here's Molly…that's me…
Let me tell you what’s going in with my health right now. First of all I could be 12, 13 or even 14. Who knows? You may remember reading I recovered from Lupus. I really did. My mom believed it was possible and it was a miracle. Well, recently mommy thought I twisted my leg or I stepped on to something. I was limping. I never cry but just like all good moms know when their kids are hurting, she knew when this pup was too. She waited a few days and nothing changed with my leg. She called my vet, Dr. Turie. I love Dr. Turie. She loves me and so going to the doctor’s office was a petting experience with Reiki and lots of hugs for me.
This time Dr. Turie told my mom “I don’t know what’s wrong with Molly.” It can be a small relapse. My mom was surprised so she put me on joint supplements and thought I would get better fast. Well, it didn’t happen in 2 weeks. So the other day I was back to Dr. Turie. She did her treatments on me. Everyone is watching and babying me. I've always been spoiled but now more than that. I love the extra attention, but what I really want is to walk again around that lake with my mom.
Imagine if a person got Lupus and got buried for this disease? Why are so many of my dog cousins killed with this disease way too early? Are the vets talking the owners into doing it out of shock? Yes! Where is the heart of their owner? Owners listen up: don't always believe every word your vet tells you. I'm proof. I will die but could have been dead months back. Yikes.
Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in? I think that's how dogs spend their lives. - Sue Murphy
My mom is a health nut and fighter for my health. She knows when it’s time to let me go, but right now it’s not my time unless God calls me home. I do believe there is a place in heaven waiting for me.
I don’t know how many dogs do have Lupus. Being a dog I don’t know if my relatives, the cats, get this but I am sad that owners are putting their loved pets down too early.
Dog lovers: the report may be bad but there is still hope till our last breath. Mine was bad. We love being alive as long as we ended up in a loving home. We tolerate abuse, but sadly why are so many of my dog friends abused by their owners or know of their dog friends who are? Not me.
Molly understands stay away from these.
3 steps to consider when any dog is diagnosed with a disease:
1. Don’t Quit
As long as their is breath, a great vet and loving parents keep moving ahead believing in your dog’s victory–total health restoration.
2. Alternative treatments
There are many alternative supplements out there without having to use drugs. What about natural herbal medicines? I call them natural dog herbal remedies cause I am a dog.
3. Natural Dog Gardening
Plant an organic garden, buy from the supermarket or farmer’s market more fresh vegetables to help the dog eat better. I love carrots. I hate lettuce. I really hate veggies but my mother disguises them.
One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why. ~Author Unknown
Since dogs have lupus, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and many other diseases common to people are you eating better? How about more fresh organic vegetables in your diet daily? Do it “now.” Or, "do the work." Imagine how good you can feel, or even better with more fresh eating.

Hugs from Mommy Carol
Carol Giambri is a back-to-basics person, author, leader, and holistically oriented. Adopting dogs for over 40 years she has found each to be precious and never returned one. Carol is a health nut and converted her husband and dog to eat this way. She chooses to be positive and upbeat refusing to accept the words “impossible" or "can't.” Her dog’s Lupus recovery is a great example of not quitting even when she got gloom reports from three vet clinics. As a result of her life experiences she is passionate about eating healthy, hunting for edible weeds, and teaching others to live a life fulfilled with dogs, eating well, and encouraging others who need an uplift through her voice. She leads a healthy eating group in her local community for years and called upon when health speakers travel to her area to promote them. Her programs and writings show people how living a simple healthy lifestyle with a dog is fun, easy and delicious without using chemicals. If you think this lifestyle is just about dogs living healthier she says it's also for people whether a dog owner or not. Carol's vegan days began when her husband had a seizure over 35 years ago, believed he would be healed and was in six weeks. Are you ready for Carol to encourage you and your dog along your journey?
