Kirstie Alley asks fans to pray for ailing dog

The former Cheers star’s Corgi, named May, underwent a risky procedure on Tuesday (16Oct12), prompting Alley to ask her followers to send well wishes her way.

In a series of posts, she wrote, “My dog May needs… your prayers. She just came out of a difficult surgery… She is my beloved… Thank you… she means the world to me and my family.”

Alley continued tweeting about her pup’s prognosis throughout the night and into Wednesday (17Oct12), and it appears the pooch is on the mend.

She adds, “May came out of the anaesthetic well… her vital signs are good.. .pink gums… sleeping peacefully… recovering as hoped.”

But the actress warned her pet is “not out of the woods yet”.

Rising early to go and check on the sick dog, she continued, “have to drag myself up and get dressed… then off to the hospital to see May… I’ll show her all your love and tweets… thank u all so much… With prayers like this I feel confident May will be fine… Thank you more than you will ever know.”
