The following causes are very important to me so we have set up these fundraisers to help out my fellow doggies. These designs are available on shirts and other gift items and all commissions earned go to each cause.

Find A Cure For IMHAI was diagnosed with Evans Syndrome in 2006. It is a combination of IMHA/AIHA (Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia/Auto-Immune Hemolytic Anemia) and IMT/ITP (Immune Mediated Thrombocytopenia/Immune Thrombocytopenic Purpura). I was hospitalized for over a week and received numerous blood transfusions and a cocktail of immunosuppressants to save my life. I was weaned off the medications due to complications such as Cushings Disease but after a few months off the drugs, I relapsed again so I am currently back on medication. I continue to fight this disease everyday. There is no cure for this disease so please help support the fight for a cure. Meisha's Hope Fund and Morris Animal Foundation has teamed up to find a cure for IMHA with Autoimmune/Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia Fund #338. Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia is a serious blood disorder and scientists estimate over 50% of dogs diagnosed with it will die from the condition. Affected dogs show signs of weakness, lethargy, exercise intolerance and anorexia. This deadly blood disorder occurs when something triggers the dog's body to attack its own red blood cells. Despite aggressive immunosuppressive therapy, this disease has a very high mortality rate. Many dogs die shortly after diagnosis, so an effective early treatment is critical. All commissions earned from this design will go to the Meisha's Hope AIHA/IMHA Fund #338 at Morris Animal Foundation.

American Eskimo Dog RescueEveryday, people are working together to rescue Eskies and to help them find their forever homes. Show your support for these wonderful people and organizations. All commissions earned from this cartoon American Eskimo dog design will go to Eskie Rescue.

Opt To AdoptMommie adopted me in 2005 and she always says it is the best thing ever. Loving dogs are waiting in shelters around the country to be adopted. Opt to adopt and make a loving forever home for these poor dogs. All commissions earned from this design will go to local animal shelters.

I Am Back!

Hello everyone! Thanks for all the prayers and good thoughts and help. I am so happy to be home again and seeing and feeling all the support from you all. I would not have made it out of the hospital without you guys. You are all such wonderful friends. The doctor said it would take a long time for me just to stabilize but I am doing my best to get better. I am full of drugs all day long. I've got steroids, immune suppressants, and antibiotics. I even need to take pepcid coz all the drugs can wreak havoc on my little tummy. The drugs make me so hungry and thirsty that I eat and drink practically all day and all night long. And the steroids make it hard for me to sleep so I just keep staring at Mom. Mommie does not get any sleep either coz I need to go to the bathroom every hour. All this has been disastrous for my sweater. All four of my legs were shaved for the iv lines and blood and oxyglobin transfusions and injections I received. They shaved my belly to do an ultrasound. They even shaved off my furpants. Now my behind feels so cold when I lift my tail or if I sit down. My gums and tongue are still really pale from lack of red blood cells. Mom keeps checking them every few minutes. She's become really paranoid. I need to get a blood test every few days to make sure I do not go critical again and the doctor said I would probably need to take these drugs for life. Yuk! Oh well, at least all the bruises on my legs are healing nicely. The one bright spot is I get to eat all sorts of yummy things. I've been scarfing down chicken, rice, cottage cheese, peanut butter and even steak. Yummmm!!!!! Hopefully, my immune system will start to act normal soon and stop killing my red blood cells and platelets. I want to be able to run and play again. I keep asking Mom to play but she says I need to rest. The doctor said I am not supposed to be jumping and running around otherwise I will only get worse. Mommie read on the internet about other doggies who are sick like me. It is so sad knowing that there are so many cases. Poor doggies! :(

Welcome back Casper! Glad that you are doing better, and mmmm...all that yummy food is making my mouth water! Sorry it's hard for you to sleep, but I do have to say that when I stare at my mom while she is sleeping at night, and she suddenly wakes up, it scares her! I just laugh at her!

looking forward to hearing about all of your adventures!

Casper,
I'm SO GLAD you are feeling better! You keep eating all of that yummy good stuff and making more red blood cells!

I am sorry they shaved so much of your sweater and your furpants - I can't imagine how cold my behind would feel without my fur pants!

If you need more blood I will send you some of mine!

Hi Casper, my Mom and your Mom emailed while you were in the horsepittle, but we hadn't met. It sounds like you need Diva Kitty's Mom to knit you something for your hiney til your furpants grow back out! We're real glad you're back home! At least you get to eat lots of yummies :)
