Byron Taylor  Slimbridge, ENG
Hi my name is Geo I am a 6 year old rare welsh mastiff cross. About a month ago I was showing symptoms of cancer of which has been confirmed. I have had 3 surgeries and been put on a lot of medication to help me feel comfortable my dad worries a lot he loves me with all his heart and I love him too I saved his life a few years back and he has been trying to save mine for the past month. Although my daddy has done his entire best unfortunately us pets don't have a service like the NHS and recently losing his job my dad is struggling very much so to pay my costly bill. Not only that my dad is a very big fundraiser and has raised thousands upon thousands for charities including dogs trust which helps my four legged friends and family. In order to pay for my bill my daddy and mummy and their friends are going to do a sponsored walk with all my offspring and even my grandson and great granddaughter will be walking by my side how cool is that I am aware I am going to have my moment of fame again (thanks dad!) In the local papers and news because apparently I have had a impact on a lot of peoples and children's lives!

I won best looking dog award in Gloucester 2011 and was in the paper then and i have also been on the news for being a Bristol rovers fan as I watch them whenever they are on TV and sit with daddy in the kitchen listening to them on the radio they are my favourite and the club has even called me their "Lucky mascot"

The next few weeks for me are going to be a bit sore but when I do get a bit more energy I am looking forward to do my walk not only will this help towards my bill my daddy wants to give a huge chunk to all the local dog charities nearby including teckels i would be really grateful if you can be part of my journey to some people dogs are just pets but my dad treats me like his own and I would like to enjoy the time I have left to make a little more impact on peoples lives and making my family proud ! I can't wait for you to see my children in the paper with me we are a well known doggy family in Gloucester Wiltshire Stroud all over the place although there is only 1 of me they carry my all important DNA

Please give what you can I don't want you to feel uncomfortable but every little bit will help not just me but for all the local dogs that don't have a loving family like I do my event will be a fun day and I would love for you all to attend there will be prizes and fun for all the kids.

LOTS OF LOVE FOLKS

Since geo left I found it hard to cope with the loss and hit the bottle hard becoming alcohol dependant i seeked help immediately and got myself into a detox centre I am now 11 days sober and glad I beat the demon I was literally cuddling goes ashes at bed at night and stayed in my bedroom with him all day and night drinking whiskey. I have come to terms with it now and although I don't have a job but am looking for one I have found a new dog which I fell in love with at 1st sight his name is rudley and he used to live with geo's son the owners kindly offered him to me for adoption to take my mind off things he is a rascal but I do love him I will never forget geo and I do and always will miss him xxx thank you all ever so much for your support

Just want to thank all the donors who have helped us out geo unfortunately as most of you know passed on but we still had a fun day and the sponsored walk was great and he was with us on that day ! Yesterday we handed over £1800 to teckels animal sanctuary and with gift aid there is a extra £450 on top so £2250 has been raised for them and geo's bill has been fully paid off including a private cremation which is what he deserved once again thank you all so much who jave supported our cause and shared and liked our cause it's been all amazing journey but it's come to a end .
Here's geo in his box the money in there also as he was guarding it!

Dogs are the most amazing animals we have! They know when something is wrong because that's how they was mad! My Toy Poodle, Princness, she knows when something is wrong especially when something terrible has happened, and does everything to make me feel better!! Dogs are fighters until the very end!! Geo was a great fighter, and a loving dog!!

I'm so sorry for your loss. A dog most certainly can be your dearest most trusted companion. Hope you can find joy in your new guy. They never replace the dog you've lost, but sometimes helping you look Foreword, instead of back, can be enough to start you on the way to healing. My heart goes out to you.

This is an amazing testament to the love Geo had for you and the way God sends us love in mysterious packages. I'm so very sorry for your loss, I had a very similar experience with my own "fur baby". Please continue raising money for the local shelters, but also please please take a small amount for yourself to get some help for your own depression. I have a therapy animal for my depression and I can't imagine getting through life without that support - you are a wonderful, strong person and you deserve to have help to get back to "right". Be brave, be strong. You have people pulling for you all around the world. Hang in there.
