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.

Great News!

Oh boy! Yesterday's blood test shows my PCV is at 50%. Wow! That is the highest I have every gotten. And my platelets are at 324K. Hooray! My doc said that my liver and blood glucose are normal and there is no sign of infection in my bladder. Wheee! It makes it worth it getting poked in my chest and belly yesterday for the blood draw and pee draw. I was bummed knowing I was gonna get poked so I had my sad face on the night before and during the drive over to the hospital. But after it was over, I was back to my smiling self and kept smiling at Mommie as she drove me home. It was good to have the poking over with. Teehee! I played and played when I got home.

And while we were there, the doc told Mommie my teeth had some tartar so she should get me those sterilized bones with a little meat on it. Knucklebones or something. Ooooh! That would make a great stocking stuffer. I can't wait to chew on that.

Thanks again to everyone. I owe it all to you guys for praying for me and supporting me through this. You guys are the best!

Hey Casper, we are thrilled the test results were so good! If there is anyone who deserves good news, it's you. You've worked so hard at keeping healthy and its definitely paid off. You have a really good Mommie. Yay for the sterilized bones with a little meat in it. My Mom is starting to let me have chewies again... they are fun, but I make my Mom hold my chewie while I do the chewing. :-)

Hey Casper, I am so very happy with your good news! I've been praying that you will be blessed with good health for many years to come. My late dog Jumbo had tick borne infection which developed into an auto immune disease. It was a roller coster ride monitoring his pcv, wbc and platelets- I can empathize with your Mommy.

By the way, I hope you'll be safe with the bone. My dogs arent, so I ordered I product called Petzlife Oral Care Gel from Singapore. I still have to try it with my dogs in Iloilo City as it promised to remove tartar in 30 day! The Animal Doctor told me those pesky tartars can lead to kidney and heart diseases.

kisses,
the Secretary

Mommie tried that for me but I became lethargic after each spray so she stopped using it on me after a few tries so don't know how well it works. I guess I am not healthy enough to use it. But could be ok for a healthy dog. But it is good to observe how your dog reacts to it before using it on a regular basis.

YAY CASPER!

Isnt it great when we go to the Vet and get a good report!!! You've been a really good doggie getting better!

My Momma brushes my teeth with beef-flavored toothpaste... that seems to be helping because I dont eat dry kibble much more these days...

Casper, it is so wonderful that you are in such great health! Your test results made us very happy! Maybe your mommie could also get you some cow hooves...humans think they are a little stinky but every dog I know (including me) loves to just chew and chew on them!
