This is Charlie, my 4 year old chihuahua and my best friend. This past Wednesday, he took a dive off the back of our couch and dislocated his tarsal bone, tearing the tendons in his lower back leg. Due to this, even with a splint and time, he will not be able to support his weight on that leg without further damage, and so our vet has told me he would need tarsal arthrodesis to join two bones in his leg to create support for him to walk again. The splint is currently on him to prevent further damage to his leg but can not be kept on him longer than 2 months.
Asking for help from others is something that really took me to swallow my pride to do, but at this point I am desperate. So far I have about $1,000 for him but will need another $2,500 at least. My family wants me to put him down because they believe it is an exorbitant amount of money that I shouldn’t be “wasting” on a dog. Charlie is still as energetic and happy as ever despite the pain he is in and how difficult it is to get around; he is doing his best so that I won’t worry.
I’ve decided to do a mix of a donation drive and a giveaway, in which all money donated will go directly to Charlie’s surgery costs. I will be giving away my brand new medium Wacom Bamboo Tablet (worth $200) in a random drawing, the rules are:
- Up to 2 reblogs for 2 entries
- Donate to email@example.com on Paypal
- Every $2 donated will count as 1 entry, so $10 = 5 entries
- Make sure to include your Tumblr address in the Paypal note
- Post must reach 1500 notes, do not delete this informational text
- You do not have to follow my blog to win, but you can follow for updates on Charlie’s condition
The giveaway will end June 30th and I will contact the winner through both their Tumblr ask box and their Paypal email address so I can send them the Wacom Tablet, if there is no response in 3 days I will draw another winner and contact them. Thank you for taking your time to read this (and hopefully reblog)!
Help this doggie ;_;
