It’s the day after #GivingTuesday and we’re speechless.
Here’s a photo of Winston at Auntie Meredith’s back door. Many, many months ago. As many of you know, Auntie Meredith is a true Scottie neighbor if there ever was one. What you don’t know is that she’s lost all of her furry friends over the last few months. No more pitter patter of 4-pawed traffic in her house. Nothing. No more Abigail the husky. No more Sniglet (Stuart’s girlfriend). No more Mama Kitty.
But, we stay in touch even though we’re not neighbors anymore. That’s what furriends do. Right?
We’re so grateful to her for her years of loving friendship.
And we’re so grateful to YOU for your loving friendship.
Yesterday, on Giving Tuesday, you supported Stuart’s Fund with gifts of financial support.
Thank you. I continue to be amazed at the kindness of others. And I continue to be amazed at how much you mean to me and the Dad Peep. And to Winston.
Here in the U.S., it’s #GivingTuesday. Where non profits across the country stage online fundraising campaigns. It’s part of what I do at my J.O.B. and I completely forgot about Stuart’s Fund. You can be a hero today. By making a gift to learn more about hemangiosarcoma. Just yesterday, I learned of more and more dogs succumbing to this horrible cancer. For which there is no cure. No test.
You can help. You have the power to change the future for dogs who will cross the bridge because of it. And who will cross too suddenly. As if they’d run into a brick wall without seeing it. This research is translational, which means it’ll help humans too. Simply follow the DONATE NOW button on the Stuart’s Fund blog and choose the College of Veterinary Medicine from the drop down menu or go here to do the same thing. That’s where Stuart’s Fund “lives.” Be sure to identify your gift – any amount helps – as designated to Stuart’s Fund.
Thank you. I can’t say it enough. Thank you for all that you do.
Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a dog blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. He would have been 12 years old in March 2018. The Scottie Chronicles is dedicated to Stuart and the joy he shared with everyone who met him or saw him from afar. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!
