Hubbell's Dental Surgery

As some of you know, my sweet dog and best friend Hubbell is starting to get up there in age.
Her dental health has been on a noticeable decline over the last couple of years. As she's gotten older, her drooling has gotten more and more excessive, and her breath has achieved levels of stink I did not previously think possible.
I've attempted brushing her teeth at home with the vet recommended meat flavored toothpaste and small toothbrush.
She destroyed that toothbrush with one swift chomp...

On our last vet visit, they informed me that her  drooling was potentially due to some of her teeth being impacted and her gums being inflamed. 
I took her in for a follow up, and got a second opinion.
Ultimately she needs minor dental surgery; a couple of extractions, and a deep cleaning. 

The initial estimate was somewhere in the realm of $1,600, not to mention additional associated costs.

Luckily I was able to find another vet that was able to give me a much lower estimate.
The most this will cost is around $900 even if follow up meds are necessary.
They also guarantee that she will not be held under anesthesia for more than 3 hours. 
This is comforting and a huge relief considering her age.

Hubbs had a leg surgery a couple years ago that cost over $4,000.

I am lucky that at that time I had a bit of money saved up to fall back on and help from family. 

This time around it's a little different...
As some of you know, I was very recently laid-off from my job without any warning whatsoever. 
Needless to say, funds are a bit tight at the moment. 

The health of Hubbell is the most important factor in all of this.
We are going for it!
She is in surgery as I type this, because I didn't want to put it off any longer.

This is the first time I have ever asked for help from friends...but
If there is anything you feel comfortable donating, please do.

Hubbell's smile means everything to me.

This dog is the brightest light I have ever known.

I just want to keep her happy and healthy for as long as possible.

I know there is a lot of love for Hubbs out there and I am asking for anyone who can to please lend a hand in keeping her smiling.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
