For my fur baby Cobbler

When I met Cobbler at Stray Rescue last June, it was love at first sight. I didn't care that she was heartworm positive and had hip displaysia from having way too many puppies. I knew she was meant to be a part of my family. Stray rescue is a great organization! They covered Cobblers preexsisting conditions 100% and even covered her heart worm treatment! After months of treatments Cobby was heartworm negative.

On May 3rd I took my fur baby in for her routine vaccinations and check up. She had been a bit nausea but nothing too alarming. The next day things took a turn for the worse. As we were leaving to go to the salon for work, she dropped to the floor and had her first seizure. After she came out of it I rushed her to the vet. Everything seemed to be normal with her blood work so they sent us home. Things progressively got worse during the last week. She had 6 seizures and was hospitalized. The anti seizure medication did not help her health to the point that she needed an MRI. Unfortunately the MRI has shown us that there is a large growing mass in her brain. The doctor has given her a couple weeks to a few months left to live.  I wish I could say she seems well enough to live a few more months but at this point she can barely get out of bed. Her quality of life will never be the same. A few good friends recommended that I start a "Go Fund Me". I would never ask anyone for money so honestly this feels a bit uncomfortable for me. If you feel you can donate to help cover some of Cobblers medical bills it would be greatly appreciated and if not that's completely understandable. If I'm able to raise more than expected I would like to donate the funds to Stray Rescue.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
