Romeo tumbled into my life nearly seven years ago, full of curiosity and devotion. I couldn’t have found him at a better time, I swear, it was those big beautiful blue eyes that helped me pull through an incredibly difficult time that would have otherwise defeated me. Romeo helped me get through the hardest years of my life, always present, always waiting to bring a smile to my face. Even now he stares at me, but there is a hint of something else in his eyes beyond endless love- a cry for help. The hardest part for me is that Romeo has a very positive future after surgical procedures but this is not an option at this time based on the resources my father and I have. It is hard to think that Romeo’s life could end years and years before his time.

Romeo is not only my dog, Romeo is my hero. Romeo is my father’s hero. When I left for college my father had just gone through a difficult divorce; he told me almost every day that “if it wasn’t for Romeo, I don’t know how I would get through this.”

I want more than anything to help Romeo through this. Especially after the time and commitment he spent helping us. It is hard to fathom the idea of euthanizing a dog that has such a positive prognosis for treatment. The neurological issue Romeo is experiencing has minimal pain, but progresses quickly. He is at the point now where he is an ideal candidate for surgery. I want to be able to stare into his deep expressive eyes and tell him everything will be ok, but I can’t do that, because I don’t know if it will be.
