Buffy's Love Story
I’ll go to heaven forever being thankful to the people that give you money so that folks like me don’t end up being alone.
A Message from Buffy's Mom
It’s just Buffy and me. I’m 89 and I do OK but I’d be lost without Buffy. I don’t have much family left and I don’t get to see those I do have very often. I have a caregiver who came in 3 times a week until this virus hit but now my doctor says that’d be unsafe. I lost my husband 26 years ago to cancer. So when Buffy got these big warts and they started bleeding, I started praying for a way to help her.
I know how unbearable it would be to be without her. Two years ago when I had to go to a rehab facility after surgery, the groomer accidently let Buffy out. She was gone for 10 days!! I prayed and cried every day. All the nurses there prayed too. When she was finally found under my neighbor’s deck, they brought her right over to see me. It was one of the happiest days of my life!
You see, my girl is one of the best dogs on earth. When she was younger she played with her toys all the time. She wanted all my attention. If I would be on the phone, she’d throw her toys across the room until I would pay attention! Now she just rolls on them, but that makes me smile too. She’s afraid of other people but she stays close to me. I think that’s because when I got her at 3 months old, she had probably come from a puppy mill.
I’ve been taking my fur kids to Northridge Animal Clinic for 30 years. They are so good and so kind. When they told me Buffy’s warts could get infected or turn into cancer and kill her, I was frantic. I would do anything for my girl but my income is very limited. Then they told me they partner with Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund to keep families like mine together.
You are the answer to my prayers. My baby got the help she needed so that she stopped licking at herself and I can stop worrying about her being in pain or worse. I’ll go to heaven forever being thankful to the people that give you money so that folks like me don’t end up being alone
