      Igor and Zhu Zhu have asked me to thank everyone who has been so very kind in making donations. Zhu Zhu has now seen a vet in Kyiv and is on medication to reduce the swelling in his injured leg. He has had some X rays and some blood tests and the vet is looking into what else might be done to help get him get back to full health

      Give sweet Zhu-Zhu hugs and kisses and cuddles for me! I know as well as you do that there is no such thing as “just a dog”—they’re our family. God bless both of you.
