I have just left Pennsylvania heading to Alabama. My blog is slightly behind, but I will be off the trail for the next few days and can hopefully update it. As of now, I am in Port Clinton, Pennsylvania (as far as my position on trail). I am currently heading to Alabama because my dog daughter, Sugar Belle, isn’t doing so well. She had surgery to remove an obstruction (some kind of cloth she had eaten) on Wednesday, July 15th. Because her intestine was perforated in multiple places, a large section of her small intestine had been removed. She was recovering pretty well, but things turned for the worse last night (Friday, July 17th) and she had to undergo another surgery to repair a spot where the stitches had torn away on her intestine. She really needs some prayers/good thoughts sent her way right now. I do not like asking for help, but don’t have much of a choice at this time. If you are able to, thank you! If not, I would appreciate you sharing the link just as much. Thank y’all for all of your support–
just read your latest update on Youcaring Fundraiser website. My thoughts are with you at this time.
Take some time out and go back and complete the AT ( you have done amazingly well to get half way

Hoping Sugar Belle recovers fully.
Jessica, I am so sorry to hear about Sugar Belle. I too have a pup who is the world to me and I can’t imagine the loss you are feeling. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family, and please take heart that she’s in a better place and one day she’ll be sitting there waiting for you. I hope you finish the trail, and if you decide to get back, dedicate the rest of the hike to her.
I am so sorry for your loss. I recently said “good bye for now ” to my sweet baby, Zara. I feel your pain. In the past, I also lost one of my dogs while I was away and never got a chance to say good bye. So I know that pain too. I will keep you in my prayers. I hope that the trail will bring you healing. And know that Sugar Belle will be right by your side every step of the way. I thank God everyday for my animals, both past and present. They are God’s sweet angels that He let’s us borrow to fill our hearts and brighten our days. She will be a part of your heart forever. I wish you all the best. I have been following your journey. You are an inspiration.
I just read about Sugar Belle crossing over the Rainbow Bridge. I am very, very sorry. I lost my companion of 17 years a while back and it was devastating. These next days will not be easy, but I sense that you will find meaning and inspiration in them. PS: When walking the Trail, clear your mind, she’s walking right beside you where she has always been.
