Unfortunately I would be one of those who would consider the money required would be better spent on several dogs rather than one so whilst I wish the poster and the dog luck I would not raise money for this.August 6, 2008 at 7:49 pm #82198
Didnt realise this was same Alfie – brain on another planet :-\August 6, 2008 at 9:06 pm #82199
Well we raised the money needed and Alfie had his surgery 2 weeks ago, it was a first time case & op for the vets involved and so far so good he’s doing well.
I completely understand those that might think the money is not worth spending on one rescue dog, but I have no regrets and certainly a lot of people wanted to help – 100% of the money raised was given specifically for him in his own fund, so every donator wanted to help him. I firmly live by the saying “saving one dog may not change the world, but it certainly changes the world for that one dog” ;DAugust 6, 2008 at 9:07 pm #82200*Nat*Member
Tricky one but I do hope he gets a better quality of life from it 🙂August 6, 2008 at 9:09 pm #82201
Emma am glad you can see it from our point of view :-* and while I might not agree I AM glad the surgery went well and I wish him the best for the future :-*August 6, 2008 at 9:10 pm #82202.dodger.Member
I’m glad the op went well and i hope he’s recovers well Emma 🙂 :-*August 6, 2008 at 9:12 pm #82203
Oh yes of course I understand I may have even had the same viewpoint at one stage in the past but a few cases have certainly changed it for me. Alfie is just as deserving of having the chance to live a normal life as any other puppy and I certainly wasn’t going to put him to sleep without giving him this chance.
