The Miracle Joy of Pony Boy

Update posted by Mia Semuta On Jul 21, 2014

They said I would only last three months. They said October 23 would be my last day if I was lucky. They said that I was destined for the Rainbow Bridge sooner, way sooner, rather than later. But Mommy and Dr. Dana said maybe they're wrong. Now I'm getting ready to celebrate my second birthday with no end in sight! Please come join me in the happiness and joy that is Pony Boy.

Well-socialized dogs can join me in the park while dog moms and dads can enjoy cupcakes in the parking lot. Miss Jillian will be there so that moms and dads of not-so-well socialized dogs can get a free evaluation and find out just how Riverfront Dog Training turned me from a wild animal into a perfect gentleman.

I really do not need anymore toys, and I'm not allowed to have most treats, so Milkbones are out of the question. However what I would like most for my birthday is for my fundraiser to reach its goal so Mom can relax and for all the dogs at the shelter to get a little surprise. If you would like to make a donation at https://gogetfunding.com/project/the-miracle-joy-of-pony-boyand bring a gift for the shelter that would be awesome! Here's theHumane Society of Harrisburg Area Wish List: http://www.humanesocietyhbg.org/wish-list

Good morning!  Things are trudging along here at Villa Mia.  Three big, specialty cakes added to the offline love total.  Thank you!  I also spent some time this weekend trying to convince Pony to let me make a gold paw print on a piece of paper so I could make some thank you notes to put in with the vinyl labels when I send them out.  He finally convinced me that I’d have a better chance getting his feline brothers to march in a parade.  The labels will go out in the mail this week with a nice picture of the Po on the thank you note.  J  Speaking of Pony’s feline brothers, I just scheduled Clay’s dental surgery for July 3.  The kitties are 11 and Clay has two teeth that need to come out.  L  Is there any objection out there in Pony Boy fan land to my using $300 of his donations for his brother?  I’m so appreciative of your support and never want anyone to feel as though I’ve misled them; please let me know and I’ll come up with a Plan B if I need to!  I hope this Monday morning finds you all well and the week ahead brings a pleasant surprise to your world.  Stay Gold, friends.  <3

Thank you to everyone finding a reason…ahem excuse…to need a specialty cake! :-)  We’re approaching our goal bit by bit.  I managed to pay just enough on the house to keep the wolves at bay for another two weeks and I’m praying that I can raise enough by Wednesday to keep the water on after Thursday.  It’s hard to keep a kidney-compromised pup well-hydrated without water!  (Not to mention bake specialty cakes…)  Please keep sharing and keeping Pony on top of your social media feeds.  Some way, somehow, Ellen DeGeneres, Miranda Lambert or Betty White will hear about this amazing boy and I know they will find a way to help.  I want nothing more than to turn the tables and be able to help others instead of begging for help for ourselves.  Stay Gold. <3

Good morning!  Thank you, again, one and all, for your support and for continuing to champion this campaign.  I’m all set for food for Pony for at least 6 weeks thanks to the amazing Siobhan and I have a few bucks to pay for the medicine for his ear- another infection.  (Shepherd’s ears are supposed to stand up but malnourishment as a baby led to my floppy-eared fella.  The floppy ear is often an infected ear.  Other, healthy-bodied dogs can fight an infection fairly well but with one organ system already compromised, Pony needs meds.)  I’m confident that we will surpass our goal.  I so want to share some of the love with Noelle and Clairabelle’s family and send a little to Operation Ava who saved Jermaine and Jeffrey.  I also want to send some help to Diane Buhl at Charwell Kennel and to the Humane Society of the Harrisburg Area; they were instrumental in Pony finding his home with me instead of getting a needle in his arm. 

 

I have a house payment due by Saturday and a water bill due by next Thursday that I just don’t have the money for.  Please continue to share and reach out to celebrities and philanthropists on our behalf.  $4,000 will change our lives but to others, it’s barely a blip on their radar.  I’m working as hard as I can between my full-time job, babysitting gigs, laundry services and specialty cakes- trust me, Mamma is not sitting around waiting for another miracle!  I’m actively creating the conditions to make it happen.  I couldn’t do it without all of your love and prayers so, again, I thank you.  Stay Gold, friends!  <3

*sigh* I just applied for a personal loan to help bridge the gap and was told that while I have very good credit and excellent income, I simply do not have enough credit to support the loan. :-( This campaign is now more important than ever.  There are so many worthy causes to support, we would so like to be able to get out of our tight spot and really pay it forward.  Prayers that we will soon be able to. <3

Thank you all so much for the love and kindness you’ve been showing.  We can feel our goal getting ever closer and have already been looking for other worthy causes to give our extra money to because we know we will get there!  Please continue to share this page and tell everyone Pony’s story.  Miracles can happen; he’s living proof. <3
