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.

Thinking Of Getting A Dog

Taking care of a dog is a BIG responsibility. Dogs are totally dependent on their masters their entire lives so there are a lot of things to consider. Here are some things to think about before getting a dog.

I would love to hear from you. You can add comments on my blog posts or drop me a line from here anytime!

Hooray!

My PCV is at 42% and platelets at 396k. Whooopeee! That means even after all the excitement of the Eskie meetup I am doing very very well. So Mommie, that means I should go to more Eskie meetups. Hehe!

The specialist said that she was not going to reduce my meds at this point. I go back in 2 months to see how things are going. If the side effects are worsening then she might reduce them then. I am still on more meds now than at this time last year in my recovery. I guess it is just harder to overcome the second time around. But at least I get 2 whole months with no poking. Yipee!

Mommie is gonna find new food for me. I have not been finishing my meals for the past few weeks. I guess I am tired of my current dog food. My Eskie pals gave me a taste of their dog food and it was so yummy but the doc said the fat content was too high for me and I need to stay on a low fat diet so I do not get pancreatitis. Being on a diet is no good! Phooey!

Hi Casper,

This is the best news I have heard of. Congrats! When I was injured and couldn't walk last year, jie jie and daddy brink me for long walks on my stroller every day even thou I couldn't walk cos they say that the best way to motivate me to get better faster so I think your mum should really let you go for more gathering or simply bring you around the neighbourhood more to brighten up your days.

I am looking forward to more good news from you.

Luv,
Snowball
