Our beautiful boy Beau, also known as Mr. Happy, is a 4 year old Australian Shepherd. He radiates enormous love and loyalty, who loves living every day exploring and adventuring with his family. Unfortunately, his and our world completely flipped when we were given some unexpected and incredibly cruel news about his health.
Within four days, we have been to many vet appointments and have now been referred to a specialist. We have learnt that Beau has a lot of fluid around his chest and lungs, so much so that it is pressing against his diaphragm, consequently making it difficult for him to breathe. From this, we have learnt that he most likely has cancer. In order to be given a diagnosis, Beau has gone in for a CT scan. Through this, we also hope he can have the fluid drained to support him. We have already paid $3,000 in the past four days on vet appointments, vet stays, bloods, scans and medication for Beau. We have additionally paid $6,000 for the CT scan so we can get some of the answers we need to support Beau moving forward and possibly drain the fluid. All totaling up to around $10,000, with every cent worth it for our boy.
Ryan and I wouldn’t usually ask anyone for anything, especially like this, yet we are kindly surrounded by loved ones who have suggested we create a Go Fund Me as they’d like to support Beau. Any small contribution you may be able to provide for our boy, even as little as your $3 coffee for the day, would be appreciated beyond words.
In 6 weeks time, Beau has the very important duty of being our ring bearer with Jax for our wedding. It wouldn’t be the same without him there. Not to mention, the many years ahead of him that he still has to be his crazy and fun self!
Ryan, Jax, Beau and I all thank you for your kindness.
