Artist's Description

“Dog” lost his home. His person lost his home and job. “Dog” needs major surgery.

I realize there are major areas to give as the world seems to be falling apart, but even a dollar will help this dear boy. He needs this surgery ASAP. I am not good at asking for money, but this is for “Dog.”


UPDATE***

I want to thank everyone who donated:))) There is still a small balance at the vet who performed his second surgery. “Dogger” is doing very well. I am copying what I wrote to Laura Retyi, Here:

Dogger is doing so well:))) Thank you so much for your sweet comments:)))) I’ve been pretty much absent from here,but am trying to become active, again. I brought him home March 15, 2011…exactly two years, on the anniversary of Grizz’s death. Needless to say, when the rescue org. and I met the owner at the vet’s I saw what bad shape he was in! It was a huge hernia, was bloody on the outside and he could barely go to the bathroom. The owner had lost everything and was standing there, looking at me, and seemed to be angry about everything. The rescue org. had nowhere to place Dogger, no foster was available because of his aggression and fear issues. If I would not have taken him, he would have been put down right there…I made a command decision to load him up and bring him home and boy, what a journey it has been, Laura! It was a seven hour drive from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma to Iola, Texas. I cried the first half of the trip, and prayed to God that it would all work out, and it did! I called my husband and told him how worried I was about the outcome of all that I had taken on. We already have so many animals to take care of. I could not leave him, Laura… You cannot imagine how this has all worked out. After his hernia surgery at Texas A&M, they biopsied the fistual they removed in his rectum. It came back as anal sac adenocarcinoma!! That was the same thing Grizz had died from. We were devastated! I found a wonderful vet that ended up doing the surgery at less than half of what A&M was going to charge for the second surgery and when he removed them and sent them off… NO CANCER!!!! WE believe that God intervened in his life:))) WE all prayed and hoped he would have a chance to be healthy and feel well. The vets think that he suffered with the hernia for a very long time. Part of his boweland bladder was trapped in the hernia. Wolfdogs magazine asked me to submit his story and I am going to start working on it. catherine
