The Parker Posey New Knee Campaign

Description

When I received the phone call asking if I would adopt Parker Posey back in the fall of 2010, it took my heart and mind a split second to know that I would. I had come to love her dearly through someone special who had decided a life abroad was her path. It was a cold day in December when I made the trek to a mid-way point between Louisville and Asheville to bring her to her new home.

As one can imagine, the adoption of a senior dog can become costly. Parker has managed quite well over the past couple of years with healthy check-ups and continued dose of Thyroid medication. We have continued to love her through thunderstorms and fireworks, and have grown to appreciate the "texturized" look of door jams and base boards in the aftermath. She fits in well with her senior sisters Gretel and Bindi. I have no doubt in my mind, that this was the home for her.

Unfortunately, we suffered a major set back yesterday. Parker, in her enthusiasm to greet an unleashed puppy at the park, suffered a complete rupture of her ACL. She is unable to walk on her back leg at all. Luckily this was a spontaneous rupture, and not due to a tumor or bone mass, which is a concern in older dogs. Surgery is a necessity as is months of rehab. The projected price tag is $2,000-3,000.00. There is no question that Parker will have the surgery. At 13 years old she still has so much joy in her life and lives for walks, meals, and daily yard inspections.

I am appealing to those of you who have known and loved Parker, or anyone who loves a good senior dog adoption story to help defray some of the cost of her surgery and impending rehab. Anything will help. She is a special girl and we are committed to keeping her out and about in the hood.

If by chance we should exceed our goal, all excess funds will be donated to the Humane Alliance of Western North Carolina -a non-profit that provides valuable care to the underserved animals in the area.
