My beloved Turtle died from complications of lung cancer on Father's Day 2012. She was 10 years old and had given 7 1/2 of those years to me as my service dog. Turtle had a mass in her lung which had to be removed to determine whether it was malignant. She also had to have x-rays, medication, blood tests and follow up care. Unfortunately it was malignant and aggressive but the surgery allowed me to cherish her awhile longer. It also bought time for her to visit her favorite people and places one last time. I know everyone thinks their dog is special, and all dogs are. Anyone who knew Turtle can attest that she was extraordinary. As a service dog she broke down barriers for disabled people and exemplified what a service dog truly is. Her intelligence and demeanor made her seem more like a person than a dog. She truly represented. As a companion she was without parallel. The only way i could afford ther care was to take out a line of credit with an exhorbitant interest rate.This means that I'm paying around $90.00 per month in interest alone on a balance of over $9000.00. As I am subsiting on a fixed income plus whatever else I can earn it has been a struggle. But one I am grateful to undertake on behalf of my beautiful Turtle. I am making some art prints to commemorate her contribution to the world. I will send one to anyone who donates any amount towards her medical expenses or anyone who wants one but can't contribute. I will include a handwritten thank you note from both of us. Email your address to misterpuck60@aol.com. There is no limit to my gratitude to anyone who cares to help offset the cost of her care. Thanks to all my friends and family for all your kind words and support. sincerely, puck
