    This makes me really sad – I hope you will consider getting pet insurance.

    Elizabeth: I’m so glad you had the courage and good sense to ask for help with Harlow’s vet bills. So many people would just put the dog down or turn it out. Please, please, please consider looking at pet insurance. We have spent thousands on our 10 year old Wheaten Terrier (allegies and skin problems) and recently rescued a pit bull. With two dogs, I knew I had to get pet insurance. The cost for the Wheaten is a little high because of his age and previous ailments. But the cost for the young pit bull is minimal and the peace of mind is worth it. We went with Petplan Insurance and so far, they have been great. Harlow is beautiful and so lucky to have your family!!

      We have actually had pet insurance before and found it not worth the deductions…but there is a new kind of veterinarian credit card that we are looking into. It’s basically the same as any other credit card, they pay the vet and you pay them + an 18% interest rate….

    I am so sorry about your puppy but glad that you were able to get the resources to care for her. I hope Harlow continues to improve.

    So happy your doggy’s getting better :) I had a couple of situations with one of my dogs back in high school and they were the scariest (and most expensive) times for my family. My love to you!

    And girl. Great minds think alike. It’s all about the pancakes, isn’t it? ;) xo!

    What a great story! I hope that Harlow recovers well and doesn’t need any more testing.

    I’m glad your dog is getting better. We almost lost our beloved George last year. There was an emergency situation and then later a cancer scare. The bills were so high that I had to go back to work on a contract position. For us it was totally worth the sacrifice because we just couldn’t bear the thought of putting him down because we couldn’t afford it. There may come a time where we will have to put him down because he is suffering, but thankfully we aren’t there yet.

    With the many things going on in your life, I’m glad that you can still pull it through. Maybe, it’s partly because of the Paleo meal that’s giving you that zest and energy. Is there a book or recipe book on this?

      Loads of great Paleo books out there, but I would start with Robb Wolf and Mark Sisson.

    I didn’t have the hemp hearts & was nearly a tbs short on coconut flour. I found the balance in supplementing the missing w the flax I had. Also am out of chocolate chips so we did w/o. Still was deeelish!! Thanks so much for the recipe! Just Eat Real Food had perfect timing in posting this one for me this morning. We enjoyed it for my son’s Kinder grad breakfast & he was really pleased. Said I have to start making it all the time now. Glad your doggy is getting better & nice to see how awesome people came together & helped out. Inspiring. Have a great day & thanks again!

      So glad I could help out with that one, it’s so tough sometimes to get the kids on board with the Paleo food you know? But once they’ve tried most of it, they love it!
