Poor Pipers Periodontal Procedure Payment Plan

First ever president and animal activist, George Wahington, once said "It matters not to have pet insurance. So long as one has kind friends with even kinder wallets and online banking, no animal shall ever suffer." 
 Maybe he didn't say those exact words but I'd like to think he did and I'd like to think he would have been thinking about Piper-Dog when he said them.

 On Saturday night (12/7) Piper wanted to open her Christmas presents early. Sarah and I explained to her how good things come to those who wait. In a fit of fury and rage Piper decided to destroy the house. Obliterating everything in her wake. It was chaos and horrifying. She eventually found her way to her favorite Nyla-Bone and began to thrash upon it with a thousand teeth of rabid wolves. In the process, she broke one of these teeth. One of her thousand rabid wolf teeth. Her favorite tooth at that. 

 The events pretty much happened like that. Some things may have been misremembered a bit but the important part is that Piper broke a tooth and it looks pretty gnarly.  Picture taking a razor blade down your molar, splitting it in half like your cutting a yule-log for the fire. Then pry both halves away from each other enough so your cheek is actually pointing out a little bit... Sorry for the imagery but we all share Pipers pain. It's what she wants. 

  A vet visit later and she is now scheduled to have the tooth removed this Thursday (12/12) This is somewhat of a blessing in disguise because along with the extraction, she'll be having an odd bump removed from her cutesy-wootsy snout to be biopsied and made sure it's nothing more concerning than just a weird... thing. Obviously this all costs money. Thankfully it's nothing earth shattering and it's not a life-or-death scenario but it is a decent chunk of change. 

 Grand total comes out to just under a thousand dollars. It's definitely a pain but every penny is worth it if it means getting this pup more comfortable. If you ever met this dog, I'm sure she's made you smile at least once. That's why we feel it's somewhat ok to be asking for money like this. It feels weird to ask but at the same time we feel like Piper deserves any help from any source, our shame aside. The procedures come out to around $850-$1,000 but our goal is capped at $500. Every dollar donated is tremendously appreciated but we wouldn't feel right with ourselves if we were to somehow raise more than half of the costs by donations only. 

  If you read this far, we can't thank you enough. If you donate anything, we'll love you more than you know. If you're unable to spare anything, we completely understand. Sharing the word will help just the same. We hope you have a safe holiday season and please please please watch over your pets. We're all they have to help them.
