Today, Zoolatry is featuring one of our special grand dogs ~ Dougie Dog ~ who was the star of this blog for many years! We truly miss this wonderful boy, but he lives happily with his family, and his special boy. I've chosen to feature Dougie Dog, because though he thankfully does not suffer from epilepsy, he has had more than a few seizures and I have seen first-hand how terrible and debilitating these can be. But I can barely begin to imagine the suffering and trauma that our canine friends go through, along with their pet parents, when they are afflicted with this condition. And of course, epilepsy strikes our human family and friends as well. Today, for some it can be controlled through medications, but research goes on and support is still needed for the fight against this disease.
FIVESIBES lost their beautiful and amazing Siberian huskie, Gibson to epilepsy and they continue to support and fight the fight. Today, there is a special blog hop, the 6th Annual PURPLE DAY Epilepsy Blog & Social Media Hop. Add your blog LINK today to support this worthwhile cause. Thank you.
