Tissue alert! Corgi Mom Linh Tran contacted me back in July about her Corgi Nubbin, who had suddenly stopped urinating. Here is Nubbin's story in Linh's words:

"On the 24th, I realized my dog Nubbin was not urinating. I took her to the vet and they did x-rays and found out that she had bladder stones and that we would need to have surgery. They drew blood and we knew we would come back the next day. The vet had mentioned that her gums were pale and was concerned and told me to take Nubbin to the Emergency Animal Hospital a few towns over if things did not improve. After watching over her that night, things grew steadily worse since she wasn't taking her medication or drinking. I took her to the emergency animal hospital and they were able to move a few bladder stones out of the way and she started to urinate. They ended up doing the surgery at 5 in the morning and during the surgery, she had low blood pressure. She was placed in critical care and the vet told me that if her blood pressure did not improve, that I would lose her. Throughout the day, her blood pressure did improve, but now there may be issues with her kidneys (not enough urination with all the fluid going through her body) and we may have to do a plasma transfusion to improve her condition. As you can see from the estimate, the charges are already extremely high and I just need help. I hate having to need to ask for it but at this point, I have to.

Thanks for taking your time to read this and consider helping us. I just want my baby to get better and come home so badly."

Sadly, a few short days later I received the following message from Linh:

"I just wanted to update you. I lost my Nubbin yesterday went she went into cardiac arrest."

Linh's bill was astronomical, but she was lucky enough to have some friends offer to help her with the bill (which ended up being well over $6,000), and Linh is only requesting help for $2,000 of Nubbin's total bill. I have set her fundraiser to $2,200 to account for PayPal and Fundrazr fees. Please spread for the word for this sweet girl, and donate if you can.

RIP sweet Nubbin <3
