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.

Comfortable sleeper

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.

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?

Good article Carol! And Molly is such a wonderful dog! Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

Carol Giambri June 22, 2011 at 10:03 am

I appreciate your comment Solvita. Molly is hanging in and plus in a small battle. Today vet for acupuncture. Yeah. We love her vet. Plus we love her too. Thanks so much for sharing.

Great Article!
Knew about the dangers for humans, but since I don't have pets, never thought about it in that respect.  Thanks for the post.  x0x

Carol — Great post!  Molly's lucky to have such a faithful caregiver and friend in you!  Your lover for her is so evident.  Great tips that you share for a dog or anyone who is diagnosed with a condition that needs help!!!   Good work!

Kim Garst June 23, 2011 at 8:09 am

Carol, this is the cutest thing! Love the narrative from Molly's point of view! Ingenious!

Suha June 23, 2011 at 8:51 am

I hope Molly recovers real soon and I am sending you both lots of love and positve energy :) . Love your blog.

Carol Giambri June 23, 2011 at 10:32 am

Thanks so much Suha. Your words mean so much. Thanks for compliment on blog; will be evolving to include the health/wellness/gardening/transitioning to eating healthier as vegetarian, vegan or rawfoodist. Still going to keep the Molly corner that will be evolving as seen now so she talks from the side of dog about human interactions as outside observed: anger, health, people skills, etc. Look forward to knowing more about you and watching. Here to help.

Carol Giambri June 23, 2011 at 10:34 am

Oh, Kim. Sweet comment. Thank you. I was talking with our Rose M. and we shared so that was the first of many Molly points of views to be birthed. Molly needs a new header? Get my email from few days back? Appreciate your kind words and “you.”

Carol Giambri June 23, 2011 at 10:37 am

Sue, it is my honor to be a great dog owner and not Molly differently then I would treat people –she is still a dog so limitations for her to shop with me, but still do our best to be the care taker. Her vet is as amazing if you think I am . I am blessed. She has taught me many lessons. She will be having her point of view, Molly Corner, as we see the site evolving plus more of my identity into health/wellness/gardening/coaching levels of transitioning to eating better hoping to be birthed under the Mommy Corner. God’s in control. I appreciate your kind words. Thank you.

Carol Giambri June 23, 2011 at 10:44 am

Hi Norma, Thanks for stopping here. Site will be evolving to bring you back without a dog too. More people talk area comng. Even without a dog it is amazing on the commonalities between dogs and people: diseases similar: cancer, diabetes, lupus, heart, etc. They love massage, we do, they love to be spoken to, we do, etc. My site is in the works and will include people talk like: health/wellness/gardening/transition to eating healthier (as a vegetarian/vegan/raw food person) for decades. Live and learn. Can shave the learning curve fast and simple. So please stop by. Want to know you more. Will be on the look out for you now.

Carol Giambri June 23, 2011 at 10:47 am

Not sure if I responded to your comments, so if so, a double thank you; if not, thanks for being her adopted aunt in far away country. We love you. She surely is a great dog too.

Tina Winterlik June 23, 2011 at 11:52 am

I'm just curious, how did they diagnose lupus, I didn't think you could diagnose it.  I love the organic garden idea. I have a great blogpost about this woman that cured herself of cancer with juicing, smoothies. Changing the way we eat definitely is so important on our health and eating veggies and fruit are so important. My daughter just adores dogs…usually when we go someplace it takes 2x as long because we have stop and pet all the dogs we meet on the way. We plan to have a dog but not for a bit more, til we are more settled and Angel is a bit older. Thanks for sharing. Take care, Tina :)

Dear Carol,
Love the sweet voice of Molly. I frequently look at my dogs and feel I can read their minds. They always look like they have words sitting right on the edge of their tongue just waiting to be delivered.
Hope Molly will feel better soon!

Carol Giambri June 23, 2011 at 2:23 pm

Thanks Michele. Molly is resting drug free, tired but really itchy. Been there before so we are on top of the game. Doing our best. Molly has a mind that is getting explosive with her own point of view and she doesn’t do a good job of watching her tongue writing. I believe she will be speaking out more. I bet your dogs are amazing cause you are. Molly also talks with her eyes. That non verbal stuff. Thanks for sharing and dropping here to wish Molly great well wishes. It’s been 4 weeks since she’s on this natural stuff with joints. Should kick in fast now. How the flowers and talk is doing awesome. Love them all.

Carol Giambri June 23, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Hi Tina, I brought dog in for a drippy eye, (not having a vet) helped with eye and looked in mouth and looked over body. They thought she showed signs of Lupus on skin. Onto more more holistic vet: Vet #2 did biopsy, removed her tooth as reason for putting her asleep, and came back progressive. Dogs are wonderful and glad you and daughter have the love for them. I’m hooked. I have health ministry, health nut and believe what you said on juicing and smoothies to work. Curious if she became vegan. With juicing I’m sure she watched her amount of sugar intake that carrots may have. Does she have site? Would love to see your site. Send over private fb message. Thank you. Here to help in any way.

Carol Giambri June 29, 2011 at 9:50 am

HI Tina,
Not sure if I responded but if so same information. Dog went in for a drippy eye at vets, they did a whole exam, observed her and thought maybe Lupus by visual — not the eyes. I didn’t think dogs got Lupus either, never heard of one, but surely as I read I see more dogs and humans get similar diseases. Ended up doing biopsy, sent to Vet school and came back progressive. I saw no signs of a happy, active dog. your dog sounds amazing and a dog lover at heart. Dogs are wonderful and as a suggestion they make wonderful companions to little kids and big kids like me. We love our “angel.” Surely eating more holistic is key for both all animals and humans. My site will be bringing out the back to basics girl in me — healthy living/eating/coaching/products side of me that I lived doing for decades (of course keeping the dogs presence as well–getting the best of both worlds incorporated into healthy living talk. Health is wealth whether to a dog, cat, horse–other animal or humans. Thanks for commenting.

Carol Giambri July 4, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Organic, you are a new name to me so didn’t know you also love dogs. Have to check you out — common like minds rock without division. Thank you for sharing.
