Ofbakische, or Offy for short, is a 13-year-old German Shepherd was diagnosed with some health problems and tumors throughout his body.
When he refused to eat, the vet suggested that he be put down. Offy’s owners knew he did not have much time left and they wanted to do something special to make the most of the time he had left.
The family took Offy to his favorite spot by the river. Lynn, Offy’s owner, reached out to the Fur Angel Blessing Blanketeers Group for additional support.
Linda Nadeau a member of the group, volunteered to make Offy a prayer blanket. The group does this for sick, abused, and dying pets all over the country, however, Offy was a special case.
Offy only lived an hour away, so Linda hand delivered the blanket to Offy and got to visit and pray for him.
Because she could not stop crying, Linda’s husband drove her. Once she arrived at Offy’s house, she put the blanket on his body, pet him and prayed that he would experience comfort and healing.
“It was a very spiritually and emotionally overwhelming experience,” Linda said.
Offy’s mom, Lynn, was emotional and very thankful for what Linda did for her puppy.
The group has sent hundreds of blankets each month, to other dogs, cats, even horses, and pigs. The Blanketeers make a difference in the lives of these precious animals because they realize they can live a different life, rather than being sick or abused. It gives them hope, love, and comfort, to survive.
A year after receiving the blanket, Offy is eating like usual, and he seems happier now. Lynn and her fiance are grateful for every extra moment they get to spend with Offy.
