Wilson's Lung Cancer Surgery Fund

If you have ever met Wilson he has likely eaten something right out of your hand, trampled your picnic, knocked over something you were drinking or ate some sort of precious roadkill artifact off of your wall. He is a bold dog and a giant pain in the ass who is still partying pretty hard. We have been together for the last 8 years and he has taught me a lot about patience and love. (Traveling around with an 85lb dog will teach you a lot about patience!)

Wilson was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and has a a lot of trouble breathing spending more and more of the coughing and gasping. The veterinarian says that the cancer seems to be just one spot of his lung and if removed he has a pretty good chance of living many more good years given his good health.

Despite all of the gasping, Wilson is still very interested in food, fetch, swimming, playing and guarding the house by running out and barking at people passing by. He is on his feet being the spry pup that he is and hasn't resigned to the corner or the closet yet.

Asking for money is difficult at this time, especially when there is so much grief, injustice and many causes to support. Current political climates have made my job difficult and money very thin. I was hoping to be able to wait until I returned to the west coast to work mid May to make money for this surgery but unfortunately Wilson's condition seems to be worsening over the past week and I don't think he can wait a few months.

If you think you can spare a little so Wilson can have a little relief I would greatly appreciate it.
