In loving memory of a Yorkie

I'm starting a gofundme for my neighbor who recently lost their 9 month old Yorkie puppy in a freak accident.

One of their youngest children was taking their sweet 'Pepper' for a walk to a friends house down the street and it was attacked by a dog that was loose.  Their loss is traumatizing in more ways than one, since their young child witnessed the entire attack and tried his best to pull their puppy free and get help.  

Part of the money will go towards the medical bills that were incurred from the incident and the other part will go towards paying off their remaining balance from their adoption fee.  

The timing of this loss couldn't be any worse, as the youngest children are expecting Santa to bring them a replacement puppy, while the family is mourning the loss of one of their "kids". 

While they might not have a new puppy on their mind yet, I would like to help eliminate the financial burden of their loss and help them focus on the Christmas spirit that we all love this time of year.  

I will post some pictures of their Yorkie as I get them, but the one I have is from a week ago when we were pet sitting Pepper while they were out of town.  

This family has been a huge help to me and my wife as we have recently moved into the neighborhood.  They have helped us in every single way that we have ever asked and more.  From house sitting, to pet sitting our Golden Retriever, to even babysitting out new born child.  

I want to thank everyone in advance, as every dollar counts and will go directly to the family.

Merry Christmas and God bless!
