Dear friends,

Our buddy Jonesy has had a tough time lately. On September 7th, he had a seizure, and his dad Brian rushed him to the emergency clinic. After a battery of tests, his doctors couldn't figure out what was going on, and he was sent home. Over the next few days, Jonesy was lethargic and sick to his stomach, and his dad had him back at the vet several times; each time, Jonesy got more tests, but no answers.


Finally, Jonesy seemed to be returning to normal, but this week, three weeks after his seizure, he's had a setback; he's tired, in pain, and not walking very well. Brian has had Jonesy back at the vet several times, and Jonesy has, again, had lots of bloodwork done, as well as urinalysis, and significant imaging (to rule out IVDD and look for other problems). After all this, Brian still doesn't know what's going on with his buddy, and the vet has started to test for more obscure causes of his symptoms.

As you can imagine, this has all been very hard on Jonesy, but also on Brian, who loves Jonesy more than it's possible to say.  Brain has spared no expense in Jonesy's treatment, which has, understandably, put a strain on his finances.  Brian was reluctant to let me post this gofundme campaign, as he doesn't like to ask for help, but he is a wonderful, generous soul who has helped so many of us, and I told him his friends would probably be grateful for an opportunity to help Jonesy get better.

Brian and Jonesy have brought so much joy into the lives of their friends, and this is our chance to show them how much we truly appreciate it.  I've set the fundraising goal at $1500 (CAD) with the hope of partially covering Brian's costs to date.

Knowing Brian is a little uncomfortable accepting help, I told him this:  any money we raise which is in excess of what he needs will go into a general fund (I think we'll call it Jonesy's Trust), which will be available to the next of our furry friends who needs our help.

For now, all we want is for Jonesy to get better, and get back to playing ball with his dad.

We love you, Jonesy.

Friends, we have reached our goal of $1500 CAD, and we are so very, very grateful to each of you who has sent love and donations to Jonesy and his dad during this difficult time.

We are turning off donations with the hope of not needing to turn them on again! Jonesy is continuing with his physiotherapy, and we hope we will soon have our little buddy back to normal. (We are well on the way -- as you can see from the photo, his dad even got a smile out of him this morning!)

Thank you all again, from the bottom of our hearts! When Jonesy is back to playing ball, we'll be sure to post an update and let you know.

Lots of love to you all!

We want to say thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to and shared this campaign. As you can imagine, this has been a very trying time for Jonesy and his dad, and your love and support have meant the world to them.

We thought we would share a quick update on Jonesy's condition. After more investigation, it's now looking as if most of Jonesy's recent problems have been caused by a mild-to-moderate form of IVDD. He continues to have difficulty walking, and is a tired and subdued little pup. His current treatment includes rest, pain medication, and physiotherapy. We are hopeful that time and love and patience -- as well as regular therapy -- will give us our bouncy, happy-go-lucky Jonesy back.

Thank you again to everyone who has sent love or donations -- we appreciate you all!
