I've had a few dogs, and I've loved them all very much. Willie, however, has completely stolen my heart. An Aussiedoodle, he is beautiful, affectionate, funny, incredibly smart, and very energetic--before this, I'd never seen him run out of steam. I don't know if it's the shepherd in him, but it's difficult for him to let me out of his sight. In two years, he has helped me get through some of life's biggest challenges.
I'm hoping that you'll help me pay the bills for Willie's hospital stay and the rehab he still needs. (Some of his injuries haven't been fixed yet!) I'm a retiree, making ends meet with the usual soc. security and tiny pension, and I do have a part-time job working for a non-profit, but it pays less than minimum wage and won't help to make a dent in any bills.
When one gets hit with an unexpected financial bill like this, it turns your world upside down, and it's hard to focus on the things one wants to--loving the dog and taking care of him and myself (out of shock and pain, Willie chomped down on my hand and wouldn't let go---it is healing!!) I have never asked anyone for a nickel, but now feel it's necessary. I'll be forever grateful for your help and Willie will send kisses. Thank you for listening. LET'S PLEASE BRING WILLIE HOME!
