Update: thank you so much for those that were able to donate share this story and/or give your warm wishes and thoughts to this wonderful family. They could not be more thankful to have Blue back at home with them! The money donated was able to help pay for Blue’s recovery. While he still has a lot of healing to do, he is making great progress! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for helping in a time of need. ❤️ They have reached the goal and were able to pay all the medical expenses for Blue, so the family asked to end the go fund me as they do not want to take any additional money. They hope another family in need gets the same love and support they have received. 


Last Wednesday January 9th, 2019 my friends Lauren and Mike’s dog Blue was attacked by a 80 lb  dog. While they tried to get the dog off of Blue they were unsuccessful with his strength. After a lengthy fight, they were able to get Blue out of his mouth and rushed him to the Emergency Vet. Unfortatetly Blue had his stomach ripped open and is fighting to survive. Blue is more than just a dog, he is this couples fur baby. To make matters worst, they have had to spend over $8,000 to help Blue fight for survival. The money that has gone towards his surgery and medical expenses was intended to go towards their plans to start IVF. Lauren and Mike have had their struggles in the last few years with starting their family and finally came to a decision that they would pursue IVF. The deposit money they had intended to go towards starting their family has sadly gone towards saving their current family member.
I would never ask for money if I didn’t truly think this couple was worth helping. These are two people that I know and believe will be the best parents for any lucky baby and have wanted nothing more than to have a family together❤️ The fact that without thinking twice they spent the money they had planned to go towards their dream family to save Blue shows the type of people they truly are. Any money donated will go towards Blues on going medical expenses and will allow them to continue to save for their future family. Anyone that has struggled with the lose of a pet or the struggle to conceive a child knows the pain this couple has endured and is continuing to endure as they fight for the life of Blue. We appreciate any donation and will ensure we update with Blues condition.
