She is my 5 year and 10 month old Cocker Spaniel mix. I’ve had her since she was 4 months old. Sometimes she’s the biggest pain in the butt, following me all over and being constantly underfoot, but she sleeps curled up against the small of my back. She loves bouncing around in snow like a bunny and pulling the squeaky out of her stuffed toys. She’s my best friend and my everlasting comfort.
I decided to take her to my senior year of college to help me combat my stress and beat back my anxiety. She’s been great so far but I can’t help but feel guilty. A little over a month ago, she started to act odd about jumping up on the couch and the bed. Then one day when she was overjoyed to see me when I came home from a long day of classes, she got hurt jumping up on the bed to give me kisses. I don’t know how it happened which is possibly the worse thing about the whole thing. Turns out, my baby tore her cruciate ligament.
I mentioned I’m a college student. I’m here on scholarship and finacial aid. I have bills to pay. I have a heavy course load at one of the most rigorous universities in America. Until this week, I worked two jobs (I had to quit one to maintain grades). The job I kept is a 12 hr shift job I can only work on the weekends. I don’t have a lot of money for my bills, let alone vet bills. My family has already paid $490 for her bills, but obviously there is a ways to go. I can only pay $80 a month.
I could use some help… Even just getting $200 total would be a help.
