Maggie's Knee Surgery

Well... I didn't think I'd ever have to resort to this, but here we are.

Due to some bad luck in the genetic lottery, my little Maggie's knee just won't be able keep up with her bouncy personality, and it's going to require surgery to repair her kneecap (which keeps dislocating and popping back in = ouch!). 

The sudden expense of such a procedure is going to be a significant burden for me financially, but it's one of those things that will only get worse with time until it's fixed. I can't stand the thought of risking further damage to her knee by waiting to do the surgery. I'm doing everything possible to cover as much of the cost as I can, but after crunching some numbers, I know I'm going to need some help. 

If you know me well, you probably know that asking for money is not something I would do unless I felt there was truly a need. I don't take this kind of thing lightly. And honestly, if this surgery was for myself, I'd probably just put it off. There are only so many pained whimpers and limps I can allow without doing something!

Anyway, I feel like I've rambled enough. I'll just end with this: I would **GREATLY** appreciate if anyone can chip in (no matter the amount) to help me cover the cost of her surgery. I love each and everyone one of you who took the time to read this, and I promise all the puppy kisses you can handle when she's all healed up.
