Harrilu (and muttsywonder- my Etsy shop) is named after my dog, Harriet (and a small sister Pippa Lou). We are trying to raise funds as quickly as possible to pay for some very steep vet bills. We are trying to get her to stabilize so the drugs that the doctor have given her (which take time to work-- sometimes as much as 2-3 weeks) can kick in and she can finally recover. The full story is below for anyone interested-- but if you're not, and you just want a good deal-- Purchase anything in my Etsy shop at 40% off -- just put in "Bearded Lady" in the notes-- its what we call Harriet-- check out my etsy shop http://muttsywonder.etsy.com
On Friday I came home to a listless, very ill Harriet. This was so unusual since she's been a robust, peppy little dog from the get-go. Shocked by her state, we rushed her to the Emergency Vet Clinic. After 2 Transfusions, and what seems to be countless moments at death's door later, we have made it through the weekend only to transfer her to a Diagnostician and their hospital. We are waiting for all the results, but they believe it is IMHA - an immune disease where the white blood cells suddenly attack and kill off the red blood cells-- leaving her organs gasping for oxygen and potentially shutting down her system. The drugs they put them on are cancer drugs-- to suppress the white blood cells, as well as steroids. It takes about a month for red blood cells to be created by the bone marrow-- so this is truly a waiting game. The vet warned us that she may need additional transfusions and more treatments to get her through the next couple of weeks.
We are now trying to scrape up enough to pay for the existing bill from today-- but then we don't know how we're going to pay to help her in the future. If you like my stuff then I hope you'll take advantage of this amazing sale and help us save our furry little loved one.
