This is Baxter a.k.a. The King of Narnia a.k.a. Moofer. He is the beloved dog of Randi and her 10 yr old daughter Moya a.ka. Beanie. He is also the brother of a beautiful big black hound named Irie and a little chihuahua mix named Copita. They are all rescues. I started this campaign as his aunt and servant (and as Randi's and Moya's good friend) because he was diagnosed with bone cancer a few years ago. The original tumor was in his right front leg. He had to have the leg amputated. He adapted very well to his tripod status and continues to fill our hearts with love. Recently they found a tumor in his lungs which was removed with a very costly surgery.  He now will need regular x-rays and continued chemo therapy. With treatment his prognosis is unknown but we are hopeful and desperately want years more of Moofer love! Randi is a hard working single mom and needs help to pay for Moofer's treatment. Her Care Credit is already maxed out or else we wouldn't even be asking. Our goal is to raise another $6,000 to cover the surgery and chemo treatment. PLEASE HELP! We love Moofers so very very very very much!! PLEASE PLEASE HELP!

Moofers has been doing great these last couple of years thanks to all of you kind folks! Recently they found a tumor in his lungs which they were able to remove. He now needs regular x-rays and continued chemo. All of these expenses have added up for his mama Randi. We need your help again please! Anything you can do will make a difference!!!! Thank you for the love and support !

He everyone! Moofers had his first chemo treatment yesterday, and (knock wood) so far so good! I was just visiting him on my lunch break and he laid right down looking expectantly at me for love and adoration - which of course I showered him with! We had a nice snuggle session by the end of which (why do any of us have to work?!) he was snoring his sweet Moofer snore, so clearly he was content and happy which makes me happy!! He also went back to his regular dog park for the first time yesterday - he smelled things, he peed, he dug a little, he got love.... a perfect wonderful afternoon at Beecher! The Dr. will be giving him chemo treatment every 3 weeks for the next few months (for a total of 6 treatments) and I will keep everyone posted (on how wonderfully he's doing of course, because he will be!!). Thank you all for your support and kindness - I know I say it every time I post an update but there really are no words to express our gratitude!!
1st day back @Beecher post-op!Happiness!

Special thank you to Cuteoverload.com and their fabulous and kind writer Brinke for posting Moofer's and Irie's story again!

That's Randi in the video on CO greeting Moofers and me hollering in the background about how handsome he is while I take the video! Be forewarned: turn the volume DOWN - I've always been told my voice carries (oops!).

Thank you again everyone for your support and please share so we can hit our goal of $4,000!!
