Dopey Davila

78 posts in this topic

hello everyone i see that u guys have been wondering about Nelson walks with the dogs but he DOES NOT take the dog for walks. He was saying that he used to before he popped his hip, he was sayin that Dopey missing walkin with Scrappy and misses playing outside. Nelson carries him up and down the stairs of our house and he carries him outside to our backyard. Sorry if you guys misunderstood. Like we have been saying this whole time we love our dog and trust me we would not take him for walks with a hip out of place.

Don't worry, we KNOW you love Dopey and Scrappy...we figured out that he was talking about their walks before Dopey hurt his hip...

Your love for your dogs shows and shows...don't you worry about that...the IMOM angels know that you love Dopey...

We want him to get fixed up as quickly as you do...

I think it was great that Nelson posted on the forum...tell him thank you from me...that was wonderful of him...

Give Dopey a hug from his friends at IMOM...we care...we truly do...and we know that you do too...that's what's going to get Dopey fixed up...all the caring and sharing. Judy

Really looking forward to what today brings for Dopey...I am hoping that the week end has been kind to him and we are getting closer to scheduling his surgery.

Nelson Family...do you know how soon the surgery can be done once the money is raised?

I am praying that it can be done SOON...sending you all and especially Dopey wishes for a good day today and hope that he's having an especially "good" day today...Judy

Dopey has such a winning smile. How much more does Dopey need to get to AFR?

I hope the Angels can help Dopey soon

Kathy, I checked the funds update this AM and Dopey has $213.00 towards his surgery, isn't that GREAT!!!

Now, we have to work hard to see what we can do in the next day or so...

IMOM angels...we are working towards a goal and it's such a DOABLE amount to raise..let's get this sweet boy out of pain and back to playing and walking with his brother...

The season of giving is right around the corner...what a better way to start out the Holiday with a donation to help this little fellow walk again. Judy

I just spoke with Dopey's vet. The specialist who can perform Dopey's Femoral Head Osteotomy (FHO) surgery will next be in on Sunday and Monday. If we can get Dopey to All Funds Raised before the weekend, the vet will definitely take care of Dopey on either Sunday or Monday.

Angels, I hope we can make this happen for Dopey. Maybe we can even get him to AFR before Thanksgiving, so that his family will not be worrying about this over the holiday.

Thanks to the generosity of those who donate to our general fund, IMOM is happy to pledge $300 to help get Dopey to AFR.

Can we make sure, before Thanksgiving, that Dopey will be able to have his surgery on Sunday or Monday? I know what a relief it would be to Dopey's family to know that he will be taken care of very soon.

Ilsa had an FHO done on her hip (she had arthritis and wasn't even 3 years old)! She does really well on it, and just today was jumping up on me, which I thought she wasn't supposed to be able to do...hmmm...

I hope Dopey gets the help he needs soon so he can have surgery on Monday.

Nelson...Dopey is doing well with his fund raising...

I know you feel sad but soon he will be feelling better again...

Right now he has $519.00 towards his surgery...he only needs $359.00 to get all fixed up!!!

IMOM angels...Nelson feels so bad...they are trying hard to get the money for Dopey and it looks as if he can get his surgery on Sunday if we can get the balance of the money raised by then...

$359.00 is all that is keeping Dopey from feeling well again...that's a very DOABLE AMOUNT to raise in a couple of days...even 3...

Nelson or Dopey's Mom...I don't know if Laurie gave your vet an update on the fund raising going on at IMOM, but I would let them know how you're doing with that...I do think Laurie did that today when she talked to them...so they are alerted that Dopey is getting CLOSE...

Let's see what we can do to get these funds raised...PLEASE...that little guy is in pain...how sad for him and his family. Judy

Good Morning, Dopey and Mama Zoila and Papa Nelson-

We know how hard this is, but please stay with us - we are more than half way to the goal of funds that Dopey needs to have his surgery on Sunday.

We know it breaks you heart to see Dopey in pain. Can you tell us about the beginning, when you first brought Dopey and Scrappy home? Were your children still young and at home?

Angels, this little dog needs all the angels he can find. Please help. I think the MAGIC number is $361.

hello everyone. i would like to start by saying THANK YOU SO MUCH for everything you guys here on imom have done so far for us and my dopey. i honestly did not think it was possible to reach our goal for the surgery but thanks to you guys are are almost there, and its like dopey feels it to. Dopey has been a little back to his self today. its still a little hard on him not being able to fully use all his legs and play with his brother Scappy our my grand-daughter, my grand-daughter loves to play with both of them, so im pretty sure she is more than happy to know he will soon have his surgery thanks to you guys..

Checking in to see if there's a more recent funding update for Dopey.

Dopey looks so much like Taffy, a cocker my sister had many years ago.

Dopey has $593 in donations! Thank you to all who have helped Dopey.

That leaves $281 that Dopey needs in order to have his surgery after Thanksgiving.

IMOM :Angel15:

In honor of Taffy, Champion Prince and the first dog I had as a little girl, Troubles (alittle bluff colored, cocker mix), I am going to do a MATCHING CHALLENGE for sweet Dopey...

He is patiently waiting for us to help him...I wish I had more and I am going to keep searching pockets, purses and coats...but right now I will MATCH up to $75.00 towards Dopey's surgery...

That gets him alot closer to all funds raised...every $1.00 donated will double...

If you can't donate, please pass his story on...we want to see him scheduled for surgery this Sunday...

Judy

I wish I had more to MATCH and I hope that everyone that reads this will find it in their heart to HELP!!!

As always, I am overwhelmed by the generosity of the wonderful people here at IMOM who give so selflessly to pets in need.

Thank you to all who donated. I will email Zoila right now to tell her the great news, and I'll also call the vet.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
