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.

Eskie Overboard!

Yesterday, we took Grandma on a rafting trip. It is the same rafting place we went to last year. Since I did so well the last time, we were excited to take Grandma on the same adventure. They provide life jackets for doggies too but they do not fit me. They are either too small or too big.

I love being up front and feeling the wind in my face. This year there were even more mosquitoes. Mommie had to keep batting them away from me. Good thing I have such a thick coat so when they would land on me she could swat them away before they could get near my skin to bite me.

Mommie even got me these spiffy new sunglasses so I would not have to squint. It's got Blue's Clues on the side earpieces with some pawprints. And it's in my favorite color, blue! They are perfect for me! 

We stopped on an island for lunch and I waded into the water and played with my ball. It was nice and refreshing to get my feet wet but I was careful not to get in too deep coz I did not want to get my head wet. But alas, it was not meant to be. Once we were back in the water our friends who were on another raft kept crashing into the trees on the water's edge. And one time when they were tangled in the trees, our raft also got swept by the current into them. Usually when we get near the edge Mommie tells me to leave the front part of the boat and sit at her feet but this time I did not move fast enough. When our rafts collided, I was thrown overboard. It was a shock to suddenly be under water. Good thing Mommie always keeps ahold of my leash when we are on the raft. So when I fell into the water she had a hold on me and the current did not sweep me away. Mommie was going to jump in after me but she saw me surface and I showed her I could swim back. I swam back to the raft with her guiding me using my harness. And she got on her tummy and bent over the front of the raft to reach for me and bring me back on board. Everyone else was busily keeping the tree branches from hitting them and trying to get out of the trees without tipping the rafts over. At first, they did not know I had fallen overboard. I was so scared but I kept my eyes on Mommie and swam back to her with all my might. She reach down to grab me and at first could not pull me up as I was too heavy so I climbed on her shoulders and soon I was in her arms safe and sound. We were both drenched. And I got a red spot on my belly from all the stress. Sniff! I rested on the raft for a couple of hours getting dried and recovering from the mishap. After that I was ready to enjoy myself again. And today my spot is gone. So all is good. Whew! What an adventure!

You are so brave! Keeping a clear head and swimming back to mommie and then climbing on her shoulders was SO smart! You are quite the extreme adventurer my friend, I am proud of you!

Oh Casper, how frightening! Your mommy was so smart to keep your leash on you and to keep hold of the other end. So many people put their dogs in boats without leashes and they can so easily, as you say, just get swept away with the current. But how great that you kept your cool, didn't panic, and just swam right back--very impressive. You are such a brave and resourceful doggy! Sadie says "Go Casper!!!"

Have you ever swum before, Casper, or was this your very first time? If so, you're all the more to be commended for being so clever.
