7 DAYS ONLY~
This is Merrie's Story & her pic is attached~
From: KatNB@aol.com
Subject: Merrie
I have a foster dog here named Merrie. Merrie was in a shelter waiting to be
euthanized. She's around 10 yrs old and has a fatty tumor on her upper chest.
I took her to the vet last night. Had cells aspirated and an exam. The vet
wants to schedual surgery asap as the tumor is large (tennis ball size) and
is affecting the movement of her shoulder.
She is a loving dog who really tries to keep up with my boys, and Rosie.
Appears healthy in every other way too! She was a stray, we think abandoned
by owners who didn't want to deal with her problem. The shelter considered
her a loving dog..but thought her to be unadoptable because of tumor and
wanted to put her down for that reason. Attached is a pic of her so you all
see who we are helping!
Thanks, Kathy

Our five year old baby Lucy has a cancerous tumor on her neck. She will have
surgery on Nov. 17 to remove what they can. Please keep Lucy in your prayers.
So in order to help us raise the money for the vet bill I'm having to part
with my collection of Boston Terrier items. If you've been looking for
something you might drop by Yahoo Auctions. You can see the BT items at

THIS IS AN URGENT SITUATION!!!

There has recently been a rash of dog thefts in and around Lake County, Illinois. This is north of the Chicago area. Dogs have also been stolen in southern WI, which is in very close proximity. These theives are BOLD, they are stealing these dogs right off owners property in broad daylight. One report has them driving a white van with back windows. So far, reports of several stolen Great Danes, a Collie, and also Debi Grunnah's beloved Anatolian Shepherd, Beefy.
The Grunnah's are offering a $5000 reward for the arrest and conviction of these individuals. It is believed, but not confirmed, they may be associated with a dog fighting ring.
PLEASE~IF YOU HAVE ANY KNOWLEDGE OF WHO MIGHT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THESE DOG
THEFTS PLEASE CONTACT DEBI AT : ISLAND FARM@AOL.COM
These are family pets that are deeply missed. Families are grieving. If
you can be of any assistance, please contact Debi ASAP!!
