I’ve been quietly researching and talking to more vets about my dog Dorian. So far every one of them is saying the same thing. He’s in need of a THR surgery. That means a total hip replacement. It’s the most expensive form of surgery for the hip situation.
Dorian, knowing his plight, has created a facebook page gathering friends and asking for donations. So far a few people have generously sent in some money to help him get a new hip. The goal is to raise $5,000. He’s currently at $300. The link to the facebook page is: Dorian’s Facebook Page. If you’re a concerned Single of the Day reader who would love to help Dorian get a new hip, and would rather donate directly with paypal here’s the link for that: Give Dorian a Hip Donation. Anything over $20 will get you a gift and thank you from me.
Tonight I’ll be performing a show in Canoga Park CA where I’ll be performing a bunch of my songs. I already know some people who are coming are planning making donations. Every little bit helps. Dorian is a great dog and I got him from a rescue as a puppy. There was no way they would have known he would have gotten hip dysplasia.
If you know of any charities that help with pet surgeries, I would be happy to hear from you about it.
Because of the dog nature of this post, I’m going to run with a song by Scott Henderson from his CD Dog Park. A full on rock and blue extravaganza by the infamous guitarist Scott Henderson. I actually took some lessons from Scott Henderson while at music school. He’s a mad man when it comes to theory and knowing the instrument. He really knows it.
He probably also has a real penchant for his dog or for dogs in general. Why else would he write an entire album about dogs and their doings? It’s a fun CD. Take the time and go get it for yourself. You’ll enjoy it.
