Service Doberman for Monika

It is time, once again, to start training my next Service Dog. For those of you who knew Tanzi, you know how much he meant to me.  For 11 years he was my constant companion, helper, and protector. His unflinching loyalty and dependability were unmatched.  While I can never replace him, nor would I even try, working with him has made me admire the amazing intelligence, loyalty, and incredible work ethic of the Doberman breed.  So it is with much excitement that I announce my service dog in training puppy, Odin!

Odin will be coming to California in less than a couple of weeks.  This means that I’m running out of time to get the money together.  The price of the puppy is $2500, plus the cost of the airplane ticket to bring him to California from Georgia, approximately another $600.  This brings the total to $3100.  With my limited earning ability, I have been only able to save $1600, leaving me $1500 short of my goal.  So at this time I turn to you, my friends, to help me raise the remaining $1500.  I do not ask you for donations, but rather loans, as I will keep a record of all the contributions and repay them as soon as I’m able to save the money.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and support. I can’t wait to embark on this amazing adventure!
