Willie aka “wee-wee” has a broken back

49442126_1594092546306223_r.jpegI guess first of all, I have to tell you about
Willie Nelson. He is the second dog that I actually have had as an adult. I got him because his brother Taco looked lonely every time that I
would come home late from work. I’d see Taco just sitting in the window waiting for me. I got Willie and fell in love immediately...and Taco
did too. Taco showed him the ropes and finally had a friend to hang out with during the day
and they became inseparable. They honestly
became brothers from another mother. Yet, I would still find both waiting in the window waiting for me to come home. They were my first children and they would wait for their daddy 
to come home, even after me and my wife had our first child last year. Both of them took to our newborn instantly and I knew I had the
family that I had always dreamed of. 

In March 2020 Willie suffered from
Intervertebral Disk Disease (IVDD). He was
initially paralyzed, but many weeks after 
surgical repair he recovered and was able to
walk again. The surgery was expensive, but I knew that I couldn’t give up on him after
everything that he has given me. There was noway that I could turn my back on him. That
initial surgery hurt, but I knew I had to do whatever I could. 

However, just this past week something
happened and his back legs are again
paralyzed. I can’t pay for the surgery again. I will not give up on him, but I do need some
help to pay for his dog crate and additional medical bills. He is getting medical treatment at  
the moment (no surgical intervention) and
they think he will have a good outcome. He may be paralyzed, but I don’t care. I just love that little guy and want to do everything that I can for him. It probably doesn’t make a lot of sense to most people, and I realize this but I am not ready to put him down if I can spend some more years with this guy.
