  1. My service dog Bella Starr is in need of a total hip replacement. The surgery is going to cost at the high end $6400 and that is discounted because she is a service dog. If I cannot get the surgery for her so that she can do her stability/mobility job the way she is supposed to then I am going to have to put her to sleep.
  2. Hello everyone, I am writing to introduce Molly, my service dog and best friend in the world. Molly and I have been together nearly 7 years and she is no doubt an angel and without question the reason I am alive today. She has been my little partner throughout many challenging times. We have watched people enter and leave our lives together, but our bond has never been broken. Molly is in desperate need of an MRI and I have no income presently to make that happen. Molly was referred for this procedure about 4 months ago and has been deteriorating slow but steady for about a year now. She limps with her right arm and has most recently been decreasing mobility and declining in energy. I feel like she is fading before my eyes and it is tearing my heart out each day. The cause of the limping (and subsequent atrophy) of this arm is unknown as she has had x-rays on all limbs which showed no inflammation whatsoever. The cause appears to be located between her shoulder blades which is the reason for the MRI. While awaiting for my disability benefits to be approved through Social Security, I have sought assistance from numerous sources to get Molly the necessary medical attention required to interrupt the progressive suffering and decline in quality of life she has been experiencing, to no avail. I stumbled upon this site and though I am honestly feeling pretty discouraged at this time, am giving this cause another go in hopes of a different outcome. Any and all feedback, suggestions or questions are welcome, and thank you for allowing us to join your community.
  3. Stewart came into my life at 6 weeks of age. He is now 20 months old. After enjoying an awesome Christmas, the news came the next day, that Stewart has bone cancer. It is a very aggressive disease. There is a tumor on Stewart's right front shoulder preventing him from putting any weight on his leg. So, like his owner he makes due with what he has, and walks on three legs. Surgery has been scheduled for next Tuesday, as we are running out of time to get help for Stewart so he can eventually go back to doing what Stewart love's to do. He loves to pick things up for me that I have dropped. He stops me from falling down, and gets me back up if I do end up on the floor. Stewart brings me his leash, collar and my outdoor shoes when he wants to go outdoors. When we come back indoors, he often beats me to my slippers. Stewart has learned how to go for help, if my daughter and son in law are at my home when I need help. So, far that hasn't happened. I want Stewart's quality of life to greatly improve. He is in a great deal of pain, and although he is in pain meds and anti-inflammatory meds, he is still hurting.....Stewart takes care of me, and for now it it my turn to take care of him, and fight for him. Happy Friday
