The Errant Dog Part III

First of all, Scott, thank you so much for the offer to donate funds for Sadie. It's very kind and generous of you, but I'm going to say no.

Second of all, I'm calling the MSPCA tomorrow to find out if we qualify for assistance to help with her bills. I'm really hoping that we do. I hate to take assistance, but I'll do it if it means I won't have to put the dog down. I thought I really didn't like this dog, but now that the choice is put her down or...nothing, then I'll suck up my pride and take the assistance.

I've been a mess all afternoon, having a major meltdown over this. Not just because it's the dog, but everything. Money problems really suck and we have more than our share right now. I started crying while I was giving Boo her bath and she looked so puzzled. And then she leaned over and wiped my face. So sweet. So heartbreaking.

I hope you can find some way to fix her. I love her name, by the way. My cat's name is Sadie.

Oh, darlin'. I'm sorry. Talk to the vet office, too - they will take payments.

Your shoulders must be getting tired.

I believe there's an interest free payment plan for pet health care... your vet should know about it.

I'm so sorry you're going through this sweetie. You and baby girl #3 deserve so much better.

I'm so sorry you're going through this, Julia. You are in our thoughts.

Let us know how this all works out. What a crummy situation to be in :(

I'm sure there must be some sort of payment option that the vet can offer you - it's not like everyone out there can afford it when these things happen, so I'm sure others have had to do the payment thing either (Hell, we'd have to do a payment thing as well!).

I hope everything turns out ok - I'll be thinking of you.
