THE STORY:

Smokey is the sweetest kindest dog, who has given everyone he has met a reason to smile. On the 10th of this month I was visiting a friend and her female pit attacked Smokey. As the dog was biting Smokey's ear than shoulder I dove between them and after several blows got it to release Smokey. Very traumatizing but lil did I know the attack has given me a chance to possibly save Smokeys life. The next day I took him to the vet and received news that left me scared, and Friday my fears were confirmed I was told Smokey has malignant lymphoma. It is a cancer that will kill Smokey if untreated as quickly as 60 days, or with an aggressive chemo treatment he could live another 2 to 6 years.
Many of you know I am still unemployed, some may know I got in a little trouble and have a felony on my record. That felony has kept me from even getting a second interview anywhere. As a former manager at P.F. Chang's and all together 15 years experience in Restaurants to not even get a second interview for serving positions is defeating. And not having the means to save my dog is crushing.
So at this point I am asking for help, saving the love of my life. I can't imagine him not being next to me when I wake up in the morning. He's only 5, and we're not ready to be separated. Thanks for reading this and stay well everyone,
Johnnie and Smokey
