The Dog Poll

Results of the dog poll: Sounds like we are getting a Labradoodle!
There is still some disagreement in the family. We will need to wait until Tyler is a little better, so we will re-do the poll then. If you think we should add another breed of dog, just let us know.

Kathy thinks the vote was unfair, but this was pure democracy. Kathy said it was unfair because she never was allowed to vote. You can only vote one time per computer, and someone had voted on every computer on the oncology floor, the parents lounge, and at home. I can not imagine how that happened.

Actually she did vote on one computer, but Erik saw her and went back and changed her vote. But do not tell Kathy.

Results:
1. No new dog - listen to your mother - 15%
2. Beagle - 10%
3. Jack Russell Terrier - 4%
4. Labradoodle - 40%
5. Any dog from the pound - 29%

I saw your story on a Buckeye Blog. I have no affiliation with Ohio State. I actually went to Kenyon College, which is about 45 minutes outside of Columbus, but grew up in Maryland and am a fan of the Terps. I only tell you all of this to let you know that people are out there supporting you from all areas of the country. Stay strong. It sounds like you have the right people around you to help you get better. If you were anything like I was when I was in the hospital as a teenager, you will take this time to become the best XBOX player you can be. Take care of yourself, and get a beagle.

I also saw your story on a Buckeye Blog, and clicked on the link to your blog. I am praying for you Tyler, we need all the Buckeyes and Browns fans we can to root our teams on to victory. I am in NJ, and will continue to pray for you, and visit your blog to check on your progress as you beat this disease.

How awesome to read the previous 2 messages from people not even connected to the Alfriend family in any way! We are continuing to pray that Tyler's blood counts improve tremendously now. We just got a Puggle (Beagle/Pug mix) and he is adorable and so loving! With my 3 boys he is a perfect fit as I think he would be for your family too : )

Take care and stay strong Tyler! We are rooting for your victory over this soon!!
God Bless you and your family,

Kyle,

"The Dog Poll" does seem unfair. There are 2 'girls' in the Alfriend household. Kathy & Oreo. It seems there should be a recount and Kathy's vote reinstated - she can also vote for Oreo. Girls' have to stick together.

We just had a call from our friend Michael McKee, from our Church. The men's Bible class has been in a prayer conference just for Tyler today and there will be another on Saturday morning. They all thank you for the web site as they in each day for the reports.

We are blessed as a family in spite of this difficult time.

Love,

Mom

I didn't vote (my oldest is 12 so I am just catching on to blogging) but I thought I might add my 2 cents- we have a 1 1/2 yr old labordoddle, they are great pets but I would not go the puppy route (with any breed). Ours had diarreha for the first 6 months. You have 4 kids, you remember what sleep depervation is like! Also I am told the teething USUALLY ends by age two- not holding my breath.
We are prying for Tyler and all of you. We love you guys and miss you!
