Where to begin….
It all in my mind started when unfortunately we lost out dog Toby. He was diagnosed with GME, which he lived with longer than expected thanks to a new treatment. So he had chemo every 6-8 months I believe it was. Then one day he wasn’t acting normal, then once let out started to dig his own grave. Which is some thing i didn’t at the time know dogs do. And still to this day it’s one of the worst things I’ve ever seen. It turns out his stomach had twisted, which was corrected. But due to the muscle loss it happened again in the middle of the night. So it was at this point we had decided to put him to sleep. Watching your own father cry uncontrollably is one of the worst situations to be in as you feel hopeless. (Image is Toby that very day having his last walk with just him and my father sporting his pink bandage)
Then came to light news that my mother had got us £30,000 in debt. Which was followed by her getting a type of breast cancer. She is fine now and has been clear many years. This was the worst time for all of us, every one was so quiet. And I regrettably distanced myself from the entire situation. It was years to pay it off.
After this we moved to try and have a better life. How wrong that has turned out to be. As we went to renting my father spent some time off from working 60-75+ hours a week. Until the money ran out. But who could be blame him for wanting some time off.
Again cancer stuck again with our dog Chester, unfortunately it was to late for him. We had about 30 days until we had to put him to sleep. At least there is some comfort in thinking he is up there with Toby.
Now, our other dog Bertie just had surgery to remove a mass on his chin which turned out to be an aggressive cancer. So he is not long for this world now.
So with money being already tight it’s now not even their. And he’s just had an £800+ electric bill. Any amount would enormously help. Thank You.
