HALLOWEEN TRICK NOT TREAT
It isn’t Halloween yet. But you now know that I received a cruel trick instead of a well-deserved treat. After being able to walk all by myself on newly mended front legs, I’ve been sidelined with a ligament tear in my right rear leg. The squirrels are much braver without me standing watch, but everyone else is sad about the latest obstacle in my short life.
Dr. MacKenzie says that surgery will put me back up on my feet with a life expectancy of 15 years old! He assured Mom that positive factors contributing to the success of my first surgery remain the same: I am young, healthy, able to withstand anesthesia, cooperative and a remarkable healer. So I am wishing-on-a-star for kind hearts to embrace me again like you did during my last journey. Dr. Mackenzie has offered a rescue dog discount of $1,050 (normally $1,400) to help the fundraising effort.

I posed for these photos in my Halloween bandanna so you could see my funky rear leg. Mom bribed me with some treats because she says I have had more than my share of tricks lately. Please share my story with animal lovers everywhere so we are able to raise the funds needed for my leg surgery. Thank you.
