Original post from September: My best buddy is dying before my eyes. His every breath is labored and he is struggling. Chopper is the healthiest of dogs until last week when he started struggling to breathe. This dog has gotten me through nursing school the birth of twins the birth of a singleton. He is my husbands and my first "child". I owe it to him to be the best friend and Mom I can. To get him the care he needs. The only problem is that it's damn expensive. With the 3 kids around you can imagine that there's not a lot left hanging around at the end of the month! That being said I'm doing something that is so hard to do. I am asking for your help to save my friend. My baby. Please donate to help me get the "mass" that is obstructing my poor dogs airway removed. This dog still acts and thinks like a puppy. Even gasping for air his tail wags. This dog loves Everyone! He deserves the chance to live. Even if I don't raise a dime I will go into tremendous debt to help this dog live. I just want what's best for him but your help would be tremendously helpful. To make sure that I can afford to keep ALL my family healthy and happy. Thank you for even reading this from the bottom of my heart. Your prayers and well wishes are so appreciated!
As of 2/25/18 Chopper is in the ICU with a pneumothorax. Now that he has been tapped he is breathing much better! He is currently cancer FREE the aggressive procedure they did 2 weeks ago removing part of his jaw worked and his margins from the biopsy came back clear!! Cost continue to mount but our boy will hopefully beat the odds! In the last 6 months we have spent $11000. We are completely at the limit of what we can afford! Please pray there are no more surprises and that chopper can go back to being our happy family dog!
