Be All You Can Be . .
-US Army Slogan
Sergeant Oliver is an energetic 2-3 year old who would love to "be all he can be" but is currently a wounded warrior. He wants so much to run and play but has recently spent much of his time in the infirmary.

Upon enlistment at the Cocker Inn, we observed something going on with his back leg. We tried physical therapy but when that failed, he was taken to an orthopedic specialty clinic where it was determined he had a fracture at the L7 sacral vertebrae. That injury has his sciatic nerve pinched which has resulted in atrophy in his right leg. When he walk he flips the foot under and walks on top of it. His spinal injury is causing him immense pain and we would love to help him get his life back. Surgery to correct the problem and eradicate the pain will cost around $4,000.

We have taken a leap of faith and scheduled surgery on Monday, December 22, so please consider a donation to help get this guy back in tip top shape. Please keep Sgt. Oliver in your prayers.

UPDATES..... Sgt. Oliver came through surgery just fine. They were not able to get his spine where they wanted but got it moved enough to help him and got it stabilized. On December 23, the specialist called and said he is doing much better than expected. He was up, walking and ready to go home that evening. Sgt. Oliver continues to recover quietly at home. He is now up and walking a little. Recently, during a bath, he surprised his foster dad by jumping out of the tub. Not a desirable action, but it does indicate he's feeling much better.


A PINK RIBBON for FITZ


Why does Fitz deserve a pink ribbon, the symbol for breast cancer? Because although he is a two year old male, he is suffering from breast cancer.

Fitz came from a hoarding situation so the first thing we did was neuter him. A few weeks later an alert volunteer noted he a small mass near one of his nipples. Surgery confirmed the diagnosis and the vet recommended a second surgery to "clear the margins." Even a second surgery did not get all the cancerous cells. Fitz's "angels" stepped in to help with the cost of chemotherapy and a third more invasive surgery. It will be sometime in January before this round of chemo is completed and the surgery is done.

Breast cancer in male dogs is unusual but we are optimistic Fitz can beat it and go on to the live a happy, long life. Please pray for Fitz and we will keep you posted on his progress.

UPDATES..... On January 12, Fitz underwent two and a half hours of surgery. The pathology report came back and it looks like all the cancer was removed. Fitz may not have to undergo chemo after all.
