Dylan Springer Spaniels Operation
This handsome boy had a difficult start in life, being neglected and mistreated. He was due to be put to sleep when his humum rescued him and gave him a loving home.
The issues Dylan has, mainly resulting from his poor start in life, have already cost his humum lots in terms of time, lack of sleep, stress - as well as cash.
The operation Dylan needs on Friday costs a whopping £700 (about$1100).
Dylan is well-known and loved by legions of beings - both two-legged and four-legged - for his fun and naughty antics.
Let's help shine a bit of kindness towards Dylan and his humummy in return.
When I set the target this morning the amount seemed to be so massive and the target far away.
I have talked to Dylan's humum tonight - she is overwhelmed by everyone's kindness and willingness to help.
Your generosity means that we are likely to exceed the target, so we discussed what to do with any extra funds raised.
Until Dylan has his operation on Friday, we're not going to know what the next step for him is.
I will keep everyone updated as we know more news.
Huge hugs and kisses from Dylan and his humummy.
BTW - Dylan does have pet insurance but the cover is limited given his age, his history and the type of surgery to be undertaken. The operation cost quoted is the cost of Dylan's humummy's contribution.
