To All PUGSLIFE Members;

I joined PUGSLIFE yestersay (November14) and wrote A TRIBUTE VOTE FOR LEAH requesting that members vote for Leah in a contest I had entered her in.  When I looked at my e mail this morning I was overwhelmed by your reponses.  I can't say that I didn't expect any, as I know how pug lovers are, but was so surprised by the amount of reponses.  Somehow thank you does not seem adequate.

As I am writing this tears are flowing from my eyes.  The emotions I am encountering are so unpredictable.  I read all of your comments over and over again.  You have been so kind, caring and compassionate.   I held Leah at the computer and read each one to her so that she knows how much she is loved, even by people who don't really know her.  I copied all the comments as I am going to put them in a special place in Leah's urn so she always knows how much she was loved. 

I still can't accept the fact that I'll be losing Leah very soon.  I keep thinking that there must be something else I can do. I feel like I have failed her. Her vet tells me that I have done everying possible and that the love Leah and I share is what has kept her going so long.  She calls her the miracle dog.  Leah has lost the ability to walk but she's not in any pain.  I hold and talk to her most of the day.  I look into those big pug eyes and her cute little face and do all I can to make her comfortable and happy.  Sometimes I take her for a ride in the car as she always loved going for rides.  I take her to the park and put her in a baby carriage and walk her around so she can she and enjoy everything around her,  I try to focus on her all of the time.  I want to spend every minute with her before she crosses the rainbow bridge. I don't sleep at night as I check on her all of the time to make sure she is OK.  I don't want to lose her.  She's my world.

Leah is currently in eighth place out of approximately 3,000 entries in the contest.  I hope that anyone who hasn't voted yet will do so ASAP.  When your on Leah's board like her on facebook and write a comment about her costume at the end of her page.  Leah will get extra points for that.  I always called  her "My Girl" and told her she was a winner. I want that to come true for her.

I will remain a member of PUGSLIFE and be part of your pug family and adventures.  Keep your pugs healthy and happy and give them pug hugs and kisses from me and Leah.  Thank you.

Always a Pug Lover,

Can we vote more than once?  I tried but it wouldn't let me hover over the stars like it let me before.

She is a beautiful girl  Carol, but do not think you have failed her. She has outstripped many a Pug whose average life span is 13 years. We hope she wins, she is a so sweet in her costume. I lost my old boy Henry at two months short of his fifteenth Birthday, previously he had been running around like a two year old but unfortunately time caught up on him and we had to let him go. Leah is one of ours now, we are possessive of our own as you will find. Now I am off to vote again.

Leah is beautiful and although we havent known her from a long time ago, we love her a lot. Your story is really touching.

Quite a few pug lovers have voted from Ohio Pug Rescue and they are passing her photo along to others

Carol that was so beautifuly written, and now I have tears in my eyes.  I know what you mean about loving Leah with all your heart.  My Lily was that kind of girl, and in the end her being my third pet to go to the rainbow bridge, she was the one that touched me the most.  She was and always will be my special little angel.  If you get a chance, go and look at a couple of my little girl and you will see why I am so touched by Leah.

Your message has brought me to tears!!!  I know you are a wonderful Mom to Leah and what you have done and continue to do for her is wonderful.  I am touched at how you read her our comments and will be placing them with her urn.  I know how precious these Pugs are to us.  My boy was diagnosed with cancer almost a year ago and I was terrified.  He is now cancer free but it just goes to show how much we care for them.  I find myself constantly checking him for any abnormalities and doting on him like no other - we can't help but love them so!  Leah is truly precious and I have no doubt in my mind that love is the best medicine of all for her.  I'm so glad that you have joined our family and shared Leah's story and pictures with us.  Our family here has grown so very close to one another and there are a handful of us who have formed quite a bond.  It's amazing how the love and passion for Pugs brings people together.  Enjoy every minute with Leah and please keep in touch :)  HUGS AND KISSES TO YOU SWEET LEAH!!!

She's so cute!  I'll go on FB and see if I can find her page through Karen.  :0)

This is such a beautiful story.  I'll try to pass the link along again to the Ohio Pug Rescue folks (I think I goofed yesterday) and I am going to put it on my Facebook page tonight when I get home. Lets make her a winner!!
