Daisy Needs Back Surgery

My dog Daisy (a dachshund) has slipped a disk in her back and is in extreme need of surgery.  She can't walk or even use the bathroom in her current condition.  All she's able to do is sit in a basket with a diaper on and look miserable.  It's really heart breaking.

The vet is currently giving her steroid shots to help her make it through the days and the pain, but have been very honest with us that surgery is only thing that can fix her condition.

The money raised will go directly to getting surgery on Daisy's back.  The vet told us it would be $6,500 at the most, since they can't predict complications or other needs that may arise.  So figure this would be the best route to go, so we can be prepared if anything goes wrong during surgery.

We need the funds as soon as humanly possible, because the longer we wait, the worse she'll get.  We want to get her this surgery before the effects are irreversible.

Daisy means a lot to me, and even though I don't see her as much, due to my wife and I's separation, that doesn't make Daisy any less important to me.   I mean, I even made her a character in my old comic Femmegasm, as a cartoon dog.  Daisy and my wife have a very special bond, and despite some issues I have with my wife at the moment, that's a bond I'd never want to break.  Daisy is also extremely special to my daughter.  So yeah, she's a very important part of the family, you could say.

I would be extremely thankful for any help I can get. This has been a heartbreaking experience for us all, and we just want Daisy to be okay.

Even if you can't donate, I appreciate that you took the time to look at this.  Thank you.

I had someone claim that I was asking for too much, but as you can see from the link above, the average for this type of surgery is $9K and it can go up to $15, so the amount I'm asking for is far from unreasonable.

Just wanted to give some verification that everything is legit here.
