Wish: Bake sale to raise money for my Pup
6 Like(s)   

 
This wish has been granted!

ok...little nervous to post this but here we go!  
I am an owner of the cutest 3 yr old belgian malamois/german shepherd dog we adopted from Humane Society in April 2009. He has taught me soooo much, he is my boy, my best friend! So a few months went by and all is well and all of the sudden he takes a turn for the worse and we had to bring him to the vet, it was bad. The vet said its Kidney failure and we were going to have to put him down (this was Feb 2010), then our Vet (who I love dearly) thought of a test she wanted to do before we put him down, an Addison's disease test, it came back positive (thank god) and we started him on the right meds to keep his kidney's going! That bill was $1500. Plus Addison's Disease is chronic, his meds all together cost $200 per month, not including food. Then, July 2010 comes along and he is doing good with his Addison's disease, everything normal then....lump on his leg, went to to vet and they think cancer...AHHH...so we get that removed and it comes back negative (thank god). That bill was $1000. Then...yes more...his right hip starts giving him trouble (Dec 2010), went to the vet, severe hip dysplasia. That bill was $400. And he started hip treatment at a different vet clinic for $30 a treatment, and he needed about 10 treatments, so $300 bill. Then....we are having a good time in the back yard last December (2011) and he came out of the bush limping, badly. So yet again another vet trip to see whats up, ACL tear, surgery again, $1500 bill. Now he is doing great, and dont worry I have asked the vet numerous times if he is suffering and the vet assures me he is in no pain what so ever and he is not suffering at all. He looks normal! We see the vet once every 2 months for his blood tests he has to get to make sure his medication dose is perfect! which it has been since he was diagnosed. All together in vet bills we have payed $4000 just at the vet, not including his meds, including his meds its around $10,000. Worth every penny. So what I am coming on the ebrandon wish page for is a wish! here is my wish:  
I want to have a bake sale to raise money because I still owe for the ACL tear, its hard to keep up with this pup, I am hoping he is done scaring the crap out of me but his meds and vet visits will never end. Its an ongoing battle I cant seem to catch up with, only fall further and further behind. Also I just got married last September (still paying for that!) and....got hit by a drunk driver and rolled my Jeep, parents god divorced. So it hasnt been my best couple of years (except for getting married, that was the only good part) Thank god I have my son (dog), he gets me through alot, I dont know what I would do without him and my husband. I think about what my pup has had to go through and life doesnt seem so bad.  
Their is my wish! so if their is anyone out their willing to donate some baked goods for this bake sale it would be forever appreciated. I am thinking of having the sale June.16 in my driveway, what does everyone think?  
*for the ppl wondering why I dont just give him back to the Humane Society I could never do that, I adopted him knowing we would have some surprises that would be costly but not to this extent* He is my son, my dog, a part of my life. Family.

If you have a freezer I could whip up some perogies for you. I do make good perogies with lots of cheese, bacon and green onion.

K, well I don't think we'll fill it all up with perogies.lol But I'll do my best to get some whipped up. Hopefully I can get a few dozen. Won't be much but it'll be something.

I don`t bake but will buy. You should think about throwing a social for a fundraiser. I know I would buy a ticket and make a nice donation. Alot of animal lovers out there:)

Do yu have an account or trust set up at the vet clinic so if someone wishes to further assist you beyond bake sale they may do so? I believe that it has been done in the past for pets on here before?!

Absolutely I would donate what I can, maybe not much, but would love to help out. I have been in the same situation, and as many people on ebrandon know, I also love my pets as part of the family. It is tough when this happens and not knowing how you are going to make the ends meet, but just know that you will. Would it be possible for you to pm me the info? Where to bring and what time? I would also love to come buy of coarse! message me and I will see how much I can make, baking for both humans and animals! Good luck! Give the puppy a pat and tell him we are rooting for him and will do what we can to help him out so he can stay happy and healthy with the family he loves so much as long as possible!

have you found out any information about this? We don't live in Brandon, but i know if i were in your situation i would be doing all i could for my "children" I would love to help, and giving a donation at your vet would be easiest for me. I do hope you are able to provide for your "son" for many years to come.
