Our Dog Needs Help

A. Quinton — Jan. 21st 2010

We have a dog, Keesha, who has been my wife’s close companion for over 16 years. While I’ve been abroad, Keesha has developed significant breathing problems, and after a trip to the vet it was ascertained that she either has pneumonia or cancer. An expensive test is required to determine which it is, and by extension whether we can help her get better or simply help her be comfortable.

This has hit us both hard, but particularly my wife, who has never experienced the mixed blessings of a senior-aged pet. I won’t be home for another three days so if you have a few moments, it would mean a lot if you could visit the little site we’ve set up, to leave a kind comment. We’re accepting donations to help pay the $1,000 + bill, and any Werewolf News readers who chip in will get a stupid little thank-you doodle from me, plus an entry to win a copy of The Werewolf’s Guide To Life.

Thanks for your time, and we now return you to our regularly scheduled Werewolf News.

    I am so, so sorry to read this. I’ve been there before myself.

    Best of luck!

    I donated what I could, $3, and I’m really sorry it couldn’t be more. My own senior dog, Lucky, currently has mammary cancer and has to be put down in a week.

    I hope you can get the funds together for your dog, good luck <3

    God bless Keesha, I have lost two 16 yr old best buddys in the world, Wolfie a male siberian husky and Rusty a mad pomeranian. Wolfie went first on Jan 23 09 and Rusty followed on Oct 1 09 missing his buddy. Sometimes its not easy to make decisions but u have to think whats best for your buddy, will it have any quality of life if it gets better, its a terrible lonely place to be in but she brought u over 16 yrs of uneselfish undenying love and you can reward her and let her go and be free from her suffering. She will be young again waiting for you at the rainbow bridge with your other pets and loved ones. Take a look at this site http://www.chaplainofpets.com/heaven.html Keep in mind Andrew that your a wonderfull Dad for Keesha and she loves you.
