PRAY FOR: Kenny 9 yo. Lord Jesus we ask that the Vets would be able to determine today what the meaning of this mass and fluid is in his chest. We ask that You would protect Kenny’s heart and lungs. Enable him to absorb the fluid. Please give mom Lisa the peace that only You can give as she waits for Drs. to determine the cause of this mass. Please heal Kenny completely. In the Name of Adonai Rapha. Amen. <3 Caren

Hi there doll baby 🤗
Lisa Bridgewater
Kenny, a mass was found in his chest. He is hospitalized to try to determine what it is. (Con. below)

Exodus 15:26 And He said, “If you will give earnest heed to the voice of the LORD your God, and do what is right in His sight, and give ear to His commandments, and keep all His statutes,** I will put none of the diseases on you which I have put on the Egyptians; for I, the LORD, am your healer.” **If Jesus is our Lord and Savior we need only to believe fully in Him, then we will long to serve Him, He satisfied the law/commandments with the sacrifice of His life, death and resurrection.


Prayers for Pets
Oh my goodness I’m so sorry! Is he having trouble breathing?
Lisa Bridgewater
He was coughing and there is fluid in his chest.
Prayers for Pets Okay. I will post him as soon as possible. Hopefully within the next couple hours. How old is Kenny? If there’s any more you can tell me please do and I will add it to the Post. 💗🙏 Caren PrayersforPets1.Org

This is Kenny, Winners Dog at our National in NY 2013
Prayers for Pets
Ok. Oh wow! He is a rock star!
Lisa Bridgewater
And the sweetest dog ever.
Prayers for Pets
So sorry darling… This somehow makes it harder to bear. Such a noble history…
Congratulations on the win, that’s quite an accomplishment!
Lisa Bridgewater
He made me very proud, a special guy.
Prayers for Pets
So… We wait…
No kidding, momma!
Lisa Bridgewater
And the waiting is so hard.
Prayers for Pets
The worst
Did they indicate when to expect it?
Lisa Bridgewater
Hopefully within the next two days. They are also having it cultured for bacteria just in case.
Prayers for Pets
You would do well to share this specific information with the group under the post I put up for him. We have some Veterinary professionals who are part of the group. When Marsha Xxxxx speaks you want to listen she is a Vet. She’s had lots of experience.

Good I was going to ask about culturing. It couldn’t hurt to look. Especially in NY if you are near woods at all.
Lisa Bridgewater
I’m in South Carolina.

No, just went for the show. Our National is always the weekend before Westminster
Prayers for Pets
Ok. Did you take him to Westminster?
Lisa Bridgewater
I’m glad they are culturing, you never know.
No I didn’t, wish I had.
Prayers for Pets
Yes, infections can be insidious
Lisa Bridgewater
I’ll put the update on the page.

When I was a freshman in college We snuck in backstage at Westminster it was pawsome! That was decades before 9/11 – no security to speak of in Madison Square Garden at that time
[I w]rote this article about that experience https://prayersforpets1.org/backstage-westminster-dog-show-1975-2018/ 😀 a little light reading
Backstage at the Westminster Dog Show, 1975 – 2018 – PrayersforPets1.org
Story by Caren Brodt, President of Prayers for Pets: I was 18 years old in my first year of college when my boyfriend and I decided to go to the Westminster Dog Show. We worked in a pet store together and we were obsessed with dogs. This was the mid-70s, pet stores sold all kinds …[…] (see link above for story)


Lisa Bridgewater
Really. After 9/11 became much tighter. I have shown there before with other dogs. Such fun.
Prayers for Pets
You can put it on the page but put it on the group too, that’s probably more where Marsha is likely to see it. Good night Lisa. My prayers are with you and Kenny. 💗🙏 Caren

Oh how cool. Well I’m going to try to get some sleep. The internal med vet is supposed to call me early in am.
Prayers for Pets
Ok sweetie. Sleep well

Update on Kenny. The internal medicine vet did a needle biopsy. Results came back mixed cells, with necrotic tissue. White blood cells and mesothelia cells. The vet said the mesothelia cells could be due to inflammation, or can indicate cancer BUT no obvious cancer cells were seen.
No bacteria noted but he has been on 2 antibiotics since Friday. Cultures were sent but will take about 2 weeks. And due to antibiotics may not grow.
He is NOT coughing at present and his respirations are normal. So he goes back in two weeks for measurement of mass which will tell a lot. Vet is leaning toward infection…cyst or abscess.
Thank you all for the prayers and please keep them coming.
