Friends, We did it. YOU did it. Nixie has been recovering from surgery for more than a month now & just this past week she started to climb stairs again...without pain! Now, every day we head out & practice stair-climbing & go on small adventures. She is so happy to be mobile again! Thank you for donating & sharing & caring! I reached the fundraising goal (all but two hundred) so I consider this campaign a total success. The surgery has also been a success (obviously), thanks to the wonderful Dr. Greg Kilburn at VEC. Thanks again to all who gave; if you find yourself still wanting to help (& are able) consider The Doris Day Animal Foundation or any of the many worthwhile organizations who help animals in need. Thank you very much!!
