Being a petsitter, I check up on my clients at least every 6 months if I don't hear from them. I emailed Debbie a lady that has two pugs that I had the honor to watch 2 times. 15 months ago, she gave me the upsetting news that Buffie her older pug died of cancer and it broke my heart to hear this. I sent her a card sending my prayers and thoughts. I emailed her on August 23rd and I just received a response. I remember her saying that she would need me to watch her Coco near the end of this year, so I emailed her to see how everyone is.
I received the worst news :( her husband passed away this May, and now Coco has cancer that is spread throughout her body and can't not be controlled, she needs to be put down :(. I sat here and cried. I really did, I loved these dogs. I was asking her what she was going to do. Well since her husband's passing and Buffie passing, she said that she has two things that she can sell to be able to put Coco down. Her car or wedding ring, and she said that she won't sell her wedding ring. Well she can't sell her car either, she needs it to get to her doctors, and grocery shopping, she is 67 and needs a vehicle.
She said that she needs money to put her down, cremate her and get an urn to put next to Buffies :( I can't imagine losing a dog of 12 yrs that she had from 4 weeks old, a husband of 40 years and now her second baby that is now 8 years old, she has had Coco from 7 weeks old. This is horrible. She has thanked me for being here and checking up on her but sadly I won't be her petsitter any longer since she will not be getting anymore dogs.
I feel I need to help her if I can by starting this fundraiser so she can put poor Coco down so she can join Buffie and no longer be in pain. Being a cancer survivor myself, the battle is horrible but if you don't have a chance to beat it, I can't imagine, even for a dog. I was thinking of getting a blank Money order and sending it to her saying " Buffie is sending Coco a ticket to heaven". I don't want her to feel that she owes anything to anyone, just give this poor woman some relief that her baby is no longer in pain. I just want to help like people have helped me.
I wish there was a cure for cancer, bad enough that people have to deal with it but animals, just not fair. So if you can help, thank you, if not, thank you for reading this.

The picture is from when I watched her 1.5 yrs ago.
