Hi... My name is Christina and I’m mommy to a sweet/special boy named Biscuit. He has been by my side from the time he was just a few weeks of age, until now (almost 2 years..) He came along at a very dark point in my life, and was pretty much my saving grace. My children, whom are almost grown, were always on the go and busy and I had started feeling like I wasn’t needed. And then this fella right here came into my life and he has made sure to make me laugh every single day since the moment I laid eyes on him. He is more than an animal or a pig to me, he is my baby. I have been through hell and back with this pig, from him getting shot- to having dippity pig twice- to having a bad castration experience and even busting out of his pen and getting hit by a car. But he has always been so strong and has pulled out each time, and I have made sure to make his life with me a pretty amazing one. Labor Day while I had a sitter watching him for me (I had to go out of town for the night, my grandmother is not doing well and the family was trying to get time in with her), The neighbor cranked up his tractor and when he did, biscuit went to spin around and when he did- he done something that caused his hind legs/end to become paralyzed. I rushed to be with him and by the time I got there, he had drug himself down the driveway and was scraped up and in pain. So we loaded him up for a 3 hour trip back to My parents house where we had been staying for the last few months due to our home burning. We had recently moved 3 hours away, but I knew he would do better if I brought him on home. Well, at first I held out hope it might be dippity pig because he had shown the symptoms, plus we had it a year ago as well- however this time is seemed much worse. I held out hope until 2 days ago, when I knew dippity would have shown some sort of signs of recovery. I am currently in between jobs and a single mother to 2 children, so extra money to have tests run on him or have him put down are just not there. I have struggled with trying to figure out what the best thing to do is, but me not knowing for sure what I’m dealing with and if it’s possibly fixable Is really making it hard on me. I love him and if there was any possible way I could keep him here with me, that’s what I would want to do. I have set my clock for every 2-3 hours so that I can go make him eat and drink. He has stated having movement in his tail and can feel me pour water on his legs, he cries bless his heart, so that’s more feeling than he has had since last Monday. However, the longer he lays there, he is starting to suffer and I can’t Handle it. I wouldn’t have ever thought to or wanted to do a fundraiser for help, but being I’m having to make the decision tomorrow to put him out of his misery or not, I figured I would give it a shot. I’m embarrassed, but I love him so much I’d do anything at this point. If I could raise enough to at least get him checked out and xrayed to make sure we can’t get past this, that would be absolutely perfect. At least I could know there was absolutely nothing I could do to help him and putting him down was the best thing I could do for him. If I only raise enough to put him down, I am ok with that. Because my only option I have at this point is have someone go down there and shoot him to end his suffering, but the thought of someone putting a bullet in my baby’s head, it’s unbearable to even think of. I have worked so hard to keep him safe and happy his whole life, knowing this was the way he left and I was the cause of it- words can’t even describe how painful it is for me to think about. I hate asking for a hand out, especially when a lot of people don’t understand how anyone could love an animal this much or how anyone could love a pig, but I do!! this pig has been my life for almost 2 years now, and as much as I love him-he loves me even more. I have to try whatever there is out there humanly possible so that he might have a shot at the life with me I had envisioned for us. If all you can offer is your prayers, I will take those too. Sorry this is such a long post, I just want you to get a feel of what this sweet boy means to me. He’s not just an animal to me, and I want you to see that so maybe you won’t just pass him up without giving his life a thought. Like I said, I’ll do whatever might could give him a shot.. give me some hope ❤️Thank you all so much and just pray that I either have a solution come tomorrow or for me to make the decision I have dreaded for a week now. To have him put down the only way I can without him suffering.
