Pay it forward

In my last post, I mentioned the tragic loss of our Frenchie, Stitch. And I cannot even begin to describe how we miss him in our every day lives! We missed him especially during the holidays – he would be sitting patiently under the Christmas tree and wait for our signal for him to open his little presents. This year we had extra cash that we decided to honor Stitch and donate to another Frenchie in need. Meet Bailey from Oregon. She is a very young French Bulldog suffering from pain that stems from a malformation of her spine.  Bailey started experiencing discomfort a few days before Christmas which made her whine and shake a lot. Her owner took her to the vet clinic right away only to find out the worst about her precious baby. Bailey’s x-rays revealed some malformation of the spine which could mean one of the following three: “a herniated disc, pressure on the spinal cord or instabliltiy in the spine causing it to pinch the spinal cord”. Surgery is Bailey’s best option, which costs a tremendous amount of money. Her owner was devastated to hear the high numbers, but made the commitment to find a solution.  She asked for pain medication and went to create this page right away.

Bailey is under heavy meds to manage her pain until she can get proper care.

One look at Bailey’s video and I knew where Stitch’s Christmas money was going.  And our family hopes that it will make a difference in Bailey’s future as a healthy and happy dog. If this story tugs at your heartstrings and you have it in you to give a little (every dollar counts), please consider donating to Bailey’s medical fund. Or if this plea comes at an untimely matter, please share this.

For those who do not wish to donate money outright, you may visit Jewelry in Candles and purchase something. 30% of the sale that usually goes to the seller will be given to Bailey’s!

And to those who have donated or are simply interested in Bailey’s progress, click here.

Next time you reach for spare change in your pocket for that latte you have been craving for, think about those who may need it!
