Ofbakische, or Offy for short, is a 13-year-old German Shepherd that was found with a number of health problems and tumors throughout his body.
When he refused to eat, the vet suggested to his owners that he should be put down. They knew that he didn’t have much life left, and wanted to do something special to make the most of the rest of his life.
They took him to his favorite spot down by the river, one last time and 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. Fur Angels make blankets for sick, abused, and dying pets all over the country, but Offy was a special case.
Because he lived around an hour away, Linda hand delivered this blanket to Offy and pray for him.
Linda’s husband drove her to meet Offy because she could not stop crying long enough to make the drive. When she got to Offy’s house, she put the blanket on his body, petted him and prayed that he would experience comfort and healing.
After the experience, Linda said, “It was a very spiritually and emotionally overwhelming experience.”
Offy’s mom Lynn, was emotional and very thankful for what Linda did for her puppy.
The group sends hundreds of blankets each month, to other dogs, cats, even horses, and pigs.
Almost a year after receiving the blanket, Offy is getting eating like usual, and he seems happier now. Lynn and her fiance are grateful for every extra moment they have with Offy.
