UPDATE 1-9-2011—

Puggy is my 9 1/2 year-old, black, male pug. Recently, he was diagnosed with cancer. He had a mast tumor on his back. At first I was very confused about what action to take next, but my vet assured me that surgery to remove it and send it to the lab was the best option. The results from the surgery will tell me what stage of cancer he has. There are 3 stages. My vet said that she has only seen one pug with a stage 3 cancer. I asked for help from Canine Cancer Awareness. To my surprise, I was granted enough funds to pay for his surgery! So, I decided to go through with the vet’s advice. During and after the surgery, he was such a good boy. He was so strong and he came home with me the very next day. He was so hyper that it seemed like he didn’t go through it at all. I am trying to keep him from jumping on the couch, but he is so stubborn and so determined to be back to his old self again.

If it weren’t for C.C.A., I would have had to save money for a long time and the longer I waited, the more the cancer cells could have spread throughout his body. I do not want to lose him. I feel like he has a long life ahead of him. Millions of thanks for the help from C.C.A. No one has ever cared for my pet and I as much as C.C.A. I am truly blessed. One day I hope to be able to give back to C.C.A. I now feel it is so necessary to help pets who have a chance of living through problems and who deserve a better life. My two pugs are so very precious to me. They are my babies and I love them dearly.

Thanks again, C.C.A. You helped change my life and my perspective on helping people when I can do so. I will keep all the pets you care for in my prayers and I wish C.C.A. a very Happy New Year!!
