Medicine for Kiva

I waited my whole life to have a dog - until I had a yard, a stable life - and when he came in, he cracked my heart open in ways I didn't know were possible. He is magic. The realiziation of decades of wanting and waiting. He quite literally saved my life - and now we are fighting to save his.

After one full and frightening week at Dove Lewis watching his kidney function flail, maxing out all care credit and depleating savings we were prepared to say goodbye this morning, only to learn even the doctors were just as heartsick over his strange case. Even in sickness he weaves everyone under his spell. He was taken into care of a specialist who thinks he has a fighting chance - but it's going to be a long road ahead. Care includes us feeding him and giving him fluids through a tube - thankfully here at home. Maybe for a month.

At this point, given toxicology reports we are left with no other option than someone poisioned our 2-year-old boy in our yard. We are horrified, confused and simply raw with grief. 

I never imagined I would ask for help this way. In fact - Ari and I DON'T just want your money. In exchange for donations we are willing to schedule photo shoots, present wine futures from my upcomming label release, I'm skilled at writing and editing all types of materials from web to press releases - and Ari is one heck of a great handiman/builder. What can WE do for YOU. Email me at [email redacted] and let me know what you need and how we can thank you for an in kind donation to help make our baby boy well again.
