Joy's Birthday Bash on Saturday, January 20

Many of you have enquired about Joy and we are glad to report, by the Grace of God, he is doing fine. He has put on weight and eating well.

Furry Friends Farm also want to explain that the vets did look into making an artificial jaw for Joy but decided against it because it would have been uncomfortable or possibly even painful at first.

Their main concern in the early stages was for Joy to eat. The first few days were critical. He was only skin and bones when first rescued and coupled with the trauma of the attack and surgery there were fears he would not eat or respond to medication. Fortunately Joy's recovery was marvellous.

The healing of his tongue was a miracle. It was full of lumps, clots and lacerations the doctors feared they would have to remove that too. But the tongue miraculously healed itself without them having to do anything.

Those of you who are not familiar with Joy's story, may read about him in the Star newspaper. Here are the online links:

RSC and FFF thanks all of you for your prayers. God loves all His creatures - big and small. This is a picture of Joy. He is having a marvellous time alternating between the Farm and a family that loves to have him over often. Joy is quite the "star" now after some visits to the schools where children were moved by his story.

People need not worry that he is tired out by appearances because Joy also gets plenty of rest and leisure time. If you look at the photo, his lower molars are all intact. He has lost the lower front teeth where the jaw was removed.

Joy is having a birthday bash on Saturday, January 20, 2006 at Pusat Penjaja Jinjang Utara, Jalan Jinjang, 52000 Kuala Lumpur. It is sponsored by Madam Lucia Foo the hawker centre's Managing Director. Sketches of Joy done by a professional artiste with the messages LOVE HEALS and LOVE CONQUERS will be unveiled at the party. These sketches will be on children's pencil cases, among other things. Write to if you need directions.

FFF would like to thank all of you who sent in donations for Joy and the Farm. There are a couple of cheques written with the name "POEZEN BOOT" as two separate words. Unfortunately FFF can't bank in these cheques because the name has to be spelt as ONE word. If you can resend with the correct name, would be grateful. Otherwise just come to the party and you can make a donation there or bring a gift of pet food, etc.

Those who have already donated please come and see for yourself Joy's progress. Your letters, donations and prayers have been the result of why she and FFF is doing so well.
