A man and his dog

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 4, 2010, 3:13 PM
Since I haven't been updating my journal I thought I'd use it for something useful. I read on Omar-Dogan's journal about this lad who needed money to save his dog. Read his note and if you can, donate a bit. I donated the little bit I had left on my Paypal account...:)

IMAGINeye said the following:

How have you been? I read you had a second child, congrats! We talked a couple of times years ago and I have been a watcher ever since. So even though we are basically strangers I'm writing because I need your help...


I have a 8 yr old English Bulldog named Tank. Raised him since he was 3 months old and we have been the best of friends ever since. Well he has fallen very ill...tumors, breathing problems, and a skin disease. It's so much, but there is a tiny light of hope. The doctor said if I could come up with $1500 :faint: dollars  that would be enough to save him and extend his life greatly. While it does sound like a lot of money I did the math. That if only 300 people donated just $5 dollars that goal could easily be obtained!

I need your help to spread the word. As shallow as it sounds far more people read your journal than they do mine...normally I'm one who could care less about page views etc. But in this case it could actually help and do some good! I wrote about all of this and posted a pic of Tank's tumor on my journal to show people what is going on. If you could write about it, let your watchers know, you have no idea just how grateful I would be. I'm also open to any other ideas or suggestions. Typically I would be able to have the funds myself. But seeing I got let go from Activision due to downsizing times have been tough. But I would do anything to help Tank get better, even toss my silly pride out the window. Either way thanks for your time Omar...I hope you have a good day :manhug:

I can't donate now because I have no money at the moment, but I'll spread the word!

That hits home because (1) I have a doggie named Tank and (2) My dog Max died of cancer in his legs. He had the tumor removed but it grew back twice as fast and took over his body :( so sadddd :( When I get my next check I might donate to this fellow :)

I really don't like bulldogs. :V

I think they're a bit too aggresive, but I appreciate that they're one of our national symbols and that's about it.

bulldogs aren't my favorite breed either, but that didn't stop me from helping ;)
