Hero Dog Loena Needs Help Healing

Loena is not just any Belgian Malinois.  She is a hero, she is a soldier, a partner,  but most of all, she is a beloved family member.  Josh (her Dad) is a United States Army Veteran serving with the 299th Engineering.  After serving overseas, Josh came back to work protecting our homeland. See Loena and Josh  were part of a team that protected our country from harm.  Loena was trained to sniff out bombs, explosives, and Josh is her handler.  They trained, worked and slept together, for years.  
When it was time for Loena to retire, Josh arranged for Loena to be with him forever.  The two are inseperable.  Loena goes with Josh wherever he goes.  She is a favorite at family functions, a smiling face on a rainy day, and her obsession with her ball is as entertaining as it gets.
Loena was just diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor.  You and I know that terminal, inoperable, are just words, and that we all know someone who we were told was going to die.  And guess what, they made it.  And thrived.  There may be options for Loena.  But they are going to cost.  We need your help.  Without the money needed, Loena's fate will be sealed.  If any dog deserves your charity, it is this one.  She would have gladly given her life for yours, won't  you give a little for her?

Please donate.  And please share this with as many people as you know. I know we can help Loena.  And I know that she and Josh will be happy for ever after.  It is NOT her time.
