POTP Needed

 This is really about a fireman who works for the same city that I work for. He was on a cruise in Mexico with his family and had a stroke. The POTP qualifier is that he was our firedog handler. He and Lola have been together a long time. 

Explaining fire & safety prevention to children. Oct 2011

The stroke was in the front part of his brain that impacts speech and motor skills. He is in a drug-induced coma. He returned back to our area Friday while many members of the fire department waited at the municipal airport. He is a much loved employee. Recently, he and Lola have been running and have both lost weight! 

Lola is having a very hard time. She used to crawl in bed with her mom & dad and wake up together. Now she crawls in bed with her mom and puts her head under her daddy's pillow and cried. As soon as he is moved out of ICU, Lola's official title will no longer be firedog but therapy dog. She will be able to be with her daddy everyday until he gets better. 

We need POTP for Mr. G, Lola and their family. 


  1. I certainly hope that they are all feeling better soon! How sad and scary!


  2. POTP on it's way!

  3. We are praying. How very sad for everyone and pup!


  4. Oh how terribles! Poor Lola and family.
    We is most definitely sendin' our most powerful healin' vibes to everybuddy dos had affected.
    Please let us knows how he is doin.


  5. Poor Lola! I hope her daddy feels better real soon.

  6. I will send some PAWerful Dachshund VIBES to them!!!

  7. My paws are crossed and my mom is praying for him.
    I hope he gets better very soon.
    Take care
    Kisses and hugs

  8. Sending lots of hugs to your friend and his family
    Benny & Lily

  9. Sending good thoughts that he is out of ICU soon and can have therapy dog visits. I know that will help him.
