THE STORY:

Our best friend, Buddy, will be ten years old next month. He is a wonderful, gentle and kind 90 lbs. Retriever/Black Lab mix. I met my husband when Buddy was two. I fell in love with Carl and Buddy after a very short time. Carl and Buddy have always been inseparable. He took Buddy in as a puppy; bathed him, fed him, trained him and, most of all, they gave each other unconditional love. October 16 started off like any other morning. It was 6:20am and still dark outside: Time for Buddy’s walk before Carl & I went to work. There are no sidewalks where we live, so our walk is always in the street. Our area is slightly country, so Buddy is not on a leash. THEN IT HAPPENED! Buddy was hit by a car. I was by his side and watch the whole horrible accident. Carl and I were inconsolable. The driver was devastated. It was not his fault: The morning was pitch dark and Buddy has a dark coat. We took him to the nearest emergency vet. After examination they found that Buddy had a Luxate left hip, right calcaneus fracture, several bilateral hip dysplasia and several minor lacerations. After a long discussion with the vet, we decided to proceed with the surgery. Buddy is a strong dog with no known health issues. The vet did a left sided FHO surgery and repair of the right calcaneus fracture. The cost was $7550. We had to borrow from all relatives and friends. This is only the beginning: We have no way of knowing what vet expenses we will incur in the future with Buddy due to the accident and surgery. Buddy needs 24-hour care. He needs to be carried to and from the house to take care of business. Water and food must be carried to him and he needs close monitoring for any signs of falling for a successful outcome after the surgery. Carl and I are trying to take personal family time off for 10 to 12 weeks to assist with the proper recovery of our beloved Buddy. I need to repay every person that was kind enough to help us. Buddy is our child. We want to always do the best for him. Our lives have been truly blessed to have him to love and receiving his unconditional love in return. Please help us with any amount that you are able. Thank you sooooo much! Intisar Keyes
