Puppy Love

My BCF’s doggie has cancer. Heart break. Her poor dog Maggie was found on the streets after living on them for several months. My BCF rescued her and now she has a happy home, but unfortunately Maggie has tumors. Tears. Just as my cousin was warming up to her and Maggie was in a happier state and safe home, the bad news from the vet came.

The cost of tests just to figure out the stages of cancer are ridiculous. If you’re not a pet owner or dog lover, you’re probably like it’s just a dog. Yeah, I know your type. I used to be in your camp. But this cousin is the same cousin who rescued Bams for us and practically overnight I flipped the switch. I got it. I love dogs! Well, my dogs, but I get it now. The thought of anyone losing their dog makes me sad because I know how I’d feel if I lost mine. Even Nora.

So in an effort to raise funds for the removal of visible tumors and the tests required to determine the stage of Maggie’s cancer, my cousin has found the time between grad school and work to make jewelry available for purchase for $10 (+shipping & handling). Each piece comes with a hand-stamped doggy paw on a shining copper or brass tag. Just a little reminder of the cause you are generously contributing to. Pictures of different styles and colors will be uploaded as she makes them. Special requests are welcomed. All pieces can be made with a match bracelet, necklace and/or earrings.

It’s time to do up those good deeds. Stop by her Etsy shop and make your purchase.

Maggie thanks you.

I thank you.

My cousin thanks you.

Happy Tuesday!
