While my husband was recently in critical condition in the hospital, he received many wonderful get well cards, and because people know he’s a dog-lover, many of them featured a dog. The wonderful variety of illustrations and wishes made me smile.

This pug enwrapped in the blood pressure cuff might be my favorite.


And there’s nothing like the homophone, “Heal!”

A dog in a cone always sends the right message.

 A poetic “Sorry to hear your tail is drooping” the inside reads, “Take all the time you need recouping.”

Some yellow labs never hurt.

I’m not sure why this dog’s bone is making music, but I love his tapping tail.

And someone threw in a cat card, just for variety.

So if you know someone who isn’t feeling well, be sure to send them a get well dog (or even a cat) and cheer them up….just like these cards cheered us!

p.s. After more than 30 days in the hospital (pulmonary embolism, internal bleeding, perforated bowel, surgery, fluid in the lungs, etc) my husband is finally home and doing well on the long road to recovery! :
