DOG CALENDAR ENTRY


Sierra, Sierra Tina Peters, Owner

Sierra is a 4.5 year old Chocolate Labrador and is the sister to Sam-Sam which we adopted from Labrador Friends of the South.
Sierra is spoiled rotten and goes every where with her mom. She loves to chase a ball, swim and go for rides on her mom's 4-wheeler.
This past April she become very ill to the point we thought we were going to lose her. She was taken to Auburn University where she lost all movement in her body with the exception of her eye movement. After going through extensive testing, great medical attention and A miracle from God she is back 100%. She is just as rotten if not more so than she was before her illness. Sierra loves to play with her brother and you do not see one of them without the other one is close behind. She thinks that she has to be snuggled up to her mom everynight at bedtime.

Sierra looks great. She obviously knew how much her mother needed her. You both deserved that miracle and a long life together.

Tina said...

Sierra:
Since you came into my life you have been a blessing. When your sister passed last year you helped me through it because I knew I had you to love and she had taught you to take care of me. This past April I thought that I was going to lose you. That was a pain I do not want to experience again. You showed me and others that know you that miracles still happen and prayer works. I am so thankful for you. Thank you for allowing me to love you and be your mom.

Love,
Your Mom
