Please Help Save Norbit the Chihuahua

NorbitsmileUPDATE : You Did It!

We had enough for everything with $5 left over.

Wow my friends are awesome friends. Thanks to YOU we had enough to cover it. Exactly enough. Now we need to talk – what art do you want? Message me here and let’s talk about repaying your awesomeness. Do you want cash in a few weeks when the IRS will be allowing me to have some of my own money back? Let’s do that if you want.

Norbit got better in the waiting room (do your furry babies do that to you?) with only minimal labored breathing and no crying, but the minute the vet touched his neck, he started hacking, really laboring to breathe and gagging. But his lungs are clear – thank goodness. There’s no definitive diagnosis right now. He left with a cough suppressant, and a course of antibiotics because there may be some bacterial action causing this in his windpipe.

He may have early collapsing trachea – and we’re getting him checked for that again the end of the month when he goes in again. But fortunately, even though it’s a chronic condition – it is manageable from what I am being told. So we’ll watch for that.

I could not have done this without you – and you and YOU Thank you for being there, thank you for being my friend, and most of all – thank you for helping Norbit.

To Jenn, who suggested Pet Insurance – I am subscribing. Lesson learned.

2014 was a horrid year income-wise – 2015 is already looking up.

I attached a couple of photos of Norbit being awesome at the vet – man he is so good for them. My dog I had years ago bit a vet square in the face.

Good morning,

It’s 5 in the morning and I’m looking for payments today to cover a trip to the vet, and I want to give you something for your money-this isn’t just asking for $. Please read on.

I need your help. In the past 48 hours something has gone really wrong with our chihuahua Norbit. He is coughing, gagging, and his breathing is super labored, he cries a little with every breath.

It’s heartbreaking and instead of getting better in the past 24 hours- it’s gotten worse. This dog is more than a dog, he’s a member of the family and he owns my heart.

I need to get him into the vet TODAY and it’s embarrassing, but I’m broke. November and December are usually awesome months for art sales but this year I made about less than $500 in a time I normally pull 2K a month. Holidays were really lean this year. And you know vets don’t see you unless you can pay. Nothing against vets – that’s how it works.

===For YOU===:
I will either repay you for whatever you give with my tax refund the first week of Feb. OR you can choose to have an artwork created just for you!
My paypal is 3@3amgallery.com -write a note with your payment to tell me which you want.

If you can’t help at this time – please share
Maybe someone in your friends list would like something custom painted. Gotta save our dog.
