My fur kids and I need some help.

Just after Christmas and before New Years I found out that my Doberman, Tulo had cancer. They told me that he had about 3 months without treatment. He has Lymph sarcoma, and I opted to keep him healthy for as long as I could without chemo.

It is now June and he is still having very good dog days with treatment by the magic vets at Aspen Park Vet. Clinic in Conifer. We have taken a holistic approach to all this and it has worked very well.

Then just 2 weeks ago Macha, our sweet tabby kitty that Tulo picked out suddenly started not eating well. We tried to save her with a chest tap that drained fluid but long story short on 6-13-2014 I had to euthanize my sweet Macha due to heart failure. She was only 7 and the sweetest kitty I have ever had. We miss her enormously.

Blake my tri-pawed Doberman looks like he is going to out live them both and is my constant companion through all of this.
All of my animals are rescues and I also foster animals whenever I can.

I know that as Tulo's health fails in the months to come I have to face the same fate with him as well.

As you can imagine, all of this has been very expensive and I have spent about $3500 so far with more to come. I am a potter and teacher and it takes a lot of work to make this extra money. As everything rises in price and my accounts are tapped out. So I have set up this site so people can help and get a piece of my art work in return.

I am appealing to you to help me through all of this. Every little bit will help even if I don’t get all the way to my goal. This is hard for me to do. Even if you dont donate, thank you for reading my letter. Please consider giving me a hand, or go to my website and consider purchasing a piece of artwork.

I love my fir kids, as they are my family. 
Thank you so much,
