Before you start reading what is going on in Jenn (Viking) and I's life i want to say a few things. The information below is not exaggerated in any way shape or form, this is not about pity or guilt and both of us hate asking for money more than anything else we are required to do in our lives. We simply are putting this out there in case people have a few extra dollars and want to help us out.
As some of you may know back on Super Bow Sunday i was at a party and received a distress call from Jenn. Our two dogs Bert and Jazzy were fighting, she had been bit trying to break it up and she didn't know what to do. I was about 30 minutes away, got in my car and started driving home. I called the cops because i didn't know how hurt she was and i wanted to make sure she was ok. By the time i had gotten home the dogs were separated and Jenn was being treated by EMTs. Due to the adrenaline and injuries she sustained she had briefly passed out. This required an ambulance ride and an ER visit. due to the injuries of the dogs they needed immediate attention as well. So while the ambulance brought Jenn to the hospital i rushed the dogs to a 24 hour vet, dropped them off and rushed to the hospital where Jenn was. She has recovered from these injuries and so have the dogs.
Since this issue, we have issued routines for the dogs, implemented precautions to try and make sure the dogs stay safe and so we can protect ourselves. The hospital bills for Jenn have now totaled an estimated $3500, and the Vet bills from this fight were $3000.
While this next bit is more of just something that happens to homeowners it didn't make life any easier. our basement has been flooding for a while and we weren't able to figure out what it was. We had masons come out to take a look because we believed it was our chimney. They confirmed that it was and said it needed a rebuild. We had to make a choice between fixing the chimney or dealing with constant floods in our basement. We chose to fix the chimney, this was another $3500.
During all of this time we have been trying to save money to afford an behavioral therapist for our dogs so we can try to work further with them than we already have to try and figure out what is going on. Due to all the expenses we haven't been able to catch up.
Fast forward to today 4/7, i'm writing this as i just returned home from the vet dropping the dogs off once again after another fight. this time i also wasn't home, and Jenn had to break it up again. Thankfully she wasn't hurt at all this time but the dogs were hurt worse than last time. We dropped them off at the vet for overnight care but don't know the extent of the injuries, all we know is the estimate to care for them is $3400.
We are now in the process of weighing are options on future care for the dogs and are really not in a good place about it. I respectfully ask that you don't judge the breed of our dogs or how we care for them.
If after reading this you feel like you would like to help it means more to both of us than you know, and literally anything you can spare is helpful. If you cant afford to donate to this cause, I ask that you find it in your heart to at least share the gofundme so that maybe others will.
I appreciate your time reading this, and hope that none of you every have to deal with anything even close to this.
