Our heads are thinking about our funding.
But our hearts are thinking only
We received this message on Friday…
We have a lovely senior beagle that
seems right up your alley
– 15yrs? (Of course we don’t really know).
Medically, she needs lots of support:
Oct 3/23- dog requires: senior bloodwork, cardio consult +/- chest radiographs, dental prophy and
extractions, spay, +/- mass resection +/- ophtho consult (Schirmer tear testing and medication for possible KCS +/- enucleation.
She is on eye meds. We also did
Please see attached medical, bloodwork
and pictures. Let us know if you can help her.
We want to call her Islay. A fine Scottish name!
is silent so like Miley (without the M or the attitude).
At least that's how we dream of pronouncing her name as we welcome her to the fold.
It's a tribute actually. In memory
of a very special little poodle named Islay.
She was the "big sister" to BOB Grad Lollie (now Molly).
She was glorious AND gracious given how she generously
allowed a lowly beagle to not only be in her prestigious poodle presence but to actually live with her too.
We’d like to think she'd
find the humour in having a beagle named after her now.
But we are taking such risks considering Islay, with all the costly medical attention she needs.
And yet, is that not the very reason we built this
beagle repair shop?
that not the very reason we are here?
So sweet old beagles like Islay don't end their lives in a shelter after being abandoned by their owners?
Yes, indeed that's why we are here.
And it's why we need
a Thanksgiving Miracle…with all the trimmings.
PLEASE HELP US REPLENISH OUR FUNDING IF YOU'RE ABLE. JUST CLICK THE LINK TO OUR CANADA HELPS GIVING
IF WE COULD RAISE OUR GOAL OF $5000 OR EVEN
HALF OF THAT, WE MIGHT JUST BE OKAY, AT LEAST UNTIL OUR SWEET 16TH BEAGLE BASH FOR CASH IN NOVEMBER.
WE ALWAYS SAY THIS.
IF EVERYONE ON OUR LIST
OF FOLLOWERS, FRIENDS, AND SUPPORTERS MADE JUST A $10 DONATION, WE'D BE THERE IN NO TIME.
WE'D BE BACK ON TOP…FOR ISLAY, FOR BETSY,
AND FOR THE REST OF THE BEAGLES CURRENTLY DEPENDING ON US FOR THE VERY BEST HEALTH CARE WHILE SURROUNDED BY THE LOVE OF THEIR
AND JUST ANOTHER HEARTFELT REMINDER TO OUR MONTHLY SUPPORTERS --- THANK YOU FOR KEEPING US GOING RIGHT NOW. IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD, YOU ARE THE VERY FOUNDATION OF ALL WE ARE AND
ALL WE DO. THANK YOU.
