I took in a friend’s dog when they could not keep him back when I was going to school and working there with the money to care for him. His name is Tod, and he’s the sweetest little Schipperke. He’s my best friend, and I would do anything for me. I’ve gone through some rough times.
These have been some of the hardest times of my life. And, all of a sudden, my best friend, who has gotten my through so much, suddenly got sick. He was sleeping comfortably when he suddenly jumped up and starting yelping loudly, pacing the room. I thought it was perhaps a nightmare (he was a bit skittish when I got him), but he yelped when I tried to pick him up or touch his lower left side. I did not witness him hurt himself outside in the yard, and I keep a close eye on him. It seemed random and out of nowhere.
Please consider helping my Tod. I do not know what I would do without him. I’ve struggled through a lot of trauma in my life, and he has sometimes been the only presence in my life holding me together with a few face kisses and snuggles. I’m trying to find work to be sure I can care for him and myself, but I need help to take him to the ER or my regular vet as soon as possible. I would be eternally grateful if anyone could help. I love my Tod, and I know he needs to be seen.
