The not for begging story....

We all know how expensive taking care of our pets can be.  Probably most of us here have spent more than we ever want to keep track of on our furry babies!  Years ago I made a promise to my husband that IF he let me rescue and have multiple Pugs, that I would support their vet needs with my Etsy shop.  I have been blessed over the years to have 6 Pugs and although sometimes money was tight, I was always able to take care of them.  Then came this year.  This year normal stuff became not so normal.   Now we face end of life issues with Cancer for Chloe, fighting the evil beast with Zoey, and we know Marty may or may not have some "C" issues himself. (but at over 15, nearly 100% blind and nearly deaf, we are letting him live out his life as it falls).  While one at a time, sometimes hard..all at once emotionally and monetarily blinding.

Many friends have asked if they could help or fundraise and I have been VERY reluctant to ask or accept any help.  I help others, I don't ask.  That's just me.  I have always directed those that want to help to visit my Etsy shop and that way I feel they get something for their money.   Many say, but my dog or cat doesn't like to dress.  I say "what's up with that"???? So, IF you are one of those people asking me "how can I help?" I still say visit my Etsy, although I honestly have not had much time (or drive) to add new items, you can always request a custom item, which I am happy to make.   Now for those of you who KNOW who you are IF you are still insisting I will put this out there..... our vet is Webster Veterianary Clinic - their telephone number is 585-872-6467   

Update - I make my items for all breeds and size dogs!  

Hug your babies....xoxo

Mom Kim here - I am at work rite now so not much time here but I took a quik look at your Etsy shop and know already that I want TWO of your red/white/blue over the collar bandanas - they will be perfect for the Fourth of July and I love the over the collar bandanas. I will officially put the order in when I get home plus look further at your store. I know most if not all of the clothes are too small for my two _Shiloh'n Diva Shasta) but like I said, I will look further later today. In the meantime.......
I can only imagine what a terrible, horrible ordeal this must be for you - two of your beloved pugs confirmed with the c monster and another possible - no way could I deal with it the way you have. I am saying prayers for you and sending POTP for Chloe, Zoey and Marty.

Just saw the top hat! Is that Marshmallow?
Our parade theme this year is Bright Lights, Big City, so it's all about glamour. I've sent the link to the top hat to some of the parade folks with boy dogs. And I've tweeted it. So cute!

I love all of your items on ETsy. Ive been planning on ordering a custom item for Weasley but I almost feel guilty to do so and not send money right to your vet. Ill send you a message about the item Im thinking off but I dont want to pressure you to complete it too soon

Sending lots of hugs and prayers. Mom is going to do a post sometime this week for you and show off the pajamas you made for us and let them know about your Etsy shop. We also have our eye on some things, as soon as Mom has another payday!
