Please help Abby, who was hit by a car TWICE in the same day! It is a miracle she's alive and her family needs our help! <3

Please help Abby and her sweet family. abby recouperating

Abby lives next door to me, with her awesome family, The Goodsons.  I've known the Goodsons for 13 years--we are dear friends--actually, we're more like family.

Abby and her family have had a rough year.  Abby was hit by a car, not once, but TWICE on the same day.  She and her brother snuck out of their fence to go on a walk-about and she got hit crossing the road.  She laid there stunned, and a nice nurse lady stopped to help her.  (YOU are an incredible human being, nurse lady!!)

As the woman was stopping to help Abby, another car went out and around her car and hit Abby AGAIN, badly crushing her front legs.  That's the bad news.  The good news is, SHE'S ALIVE, which is truly a miracle!!Abby resting

This sweet nurse was late for her shift at the hospital, but two other local heroes took Abby to the emergency vet.  Can you believe that the nurse covered the vet costs until Abby's family could be located?  An angel on earth! Truly! So, Mama Goodson finally found Abby (which is a story in itself) and was SO relieved she was alive!!!! WE ALL ARE! YAY! After much medical treatment, she's in two casts and will require months to heal, as well as weekly visits to the vet for her bandages/casts to be changed.

Unfortunately, Abby's bills were really high, and the Goodsons have already had a tough year, with Abby's human brother having been life-flighted to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta several times just this year alone, with several extended stays.

It hasn't been easy for them, but anyone who knows them, knows they take it in stride.  They are so positive and generous and strong. And Abby follows suit---look how happy she is to be alive and laying in the sunshine! Abby in sunshine (And for those of you who remember Mama Dog, the Goodsons were the ones who let me build a giant hay bail igloo in their yard for her!)  They are truly the epitome of what it means to be compassionate human beings, and it would be so great if we could help take this one worry off their plate.  

Please consider donating to help Abby's bills and to help the Goodsons.  Even $5 would be great---when we come together as a community, the funds add up quickly and we can move mountains!!!  Thank you so much!!!! 

All donations will go directly to the Goodsons and will be greatly appreciated.

Finally, for those of you who remember my dear Sunny dog, I put her pink monkey collar on Abby a few months ago---not exactly sure what inspired me to do so--but, she was wearing it on the day of the accident, and still has it on today.  I really believe it brought her good luck and protection to be able to survive being hit by two cars---sweet Sunny smiling down on sweet Abby and watchin out for her. <3
