Olive's Surgery

We adopted Olive into our family in early 2017 from a shelter in Madras, Oregon, hoping to bring a little light into the life of our 7 year old Goldendoodle, Sophie. Olive was tiny and independent with a giant belly and even larger ears. She has grown into an intelligent, goofy and affectionate dog weighing 50 lbs that eats just about everything within reach. She loves to chase butterflies, torture bugs and throw her squeaker toys high into the air. From morning until night, Olive is constantly loving on her big sister by giving her hugs, tugging on her ears and cleaning her teeth.

Although this little mutt of ours is full of life, we just found out that she has a problem with her lymph node that needs serious attention. Her left lymph node is about the size of an egg, full of blood and fluid. She has trouble eating, is in a little pain, and sleeps much more than a normal puppy should. We are looking at a surgery that costs $2[phone redacted] along with the additional cost of pain meds and antibiotics. We have already spent about $500 on office visits and prescriptions in the last month. Chad has only 1 week left at work before leaving for medical school and we are at a loss for how we are going to make this work. With only 8 months of living life to the fullest under Olive's belt, we will do everything in our power to make sure she gets the procedure and makes it out healthy and happy. Please help us give our little monster the painless life she deserves!

With thanks,
Chad, Amanda & Sophie
