Paws 4 Pogo

A friend of mine, Mandi, is a 100% service-disabled Navy vet. Her service dog, Pogo, is a rescue who was later trained to her current occupation. Pogo has a torn ACL (ligament) in her leg and needs a very expensive surgery ($3,500) to have it repaired. Due to her disabled status, Mandi is unable to work and is on a fixed income. She can't afford Pogo's surgery alone, and is largely confined to her home without her service dog due to her disability.

Here's where we can help! A fundraising campaign has been started at:

Paws 4 Pogo -

If you can donate, please consider doing so. Pass the word along to your family and friends through social networking. Please help us to reach our goal ASAP, as Pogo is in a lot of pain and suffers each day that she doesn't get this surgery.

    Unfortunately it's incredibly expensive sending money from here to the States so I have sent the details about Pogo to a friend in UK who has just replied mto my email to say a donation has been made from both of us. It is such a touching story.

    On a lighter subject, I have at last replied to a query you made about a blog I wrote in 2009. Yes, 3 1/2 years late but at least you should have got your answer AT LAST. heee heee

    Walaikum salaam, Aliyah

  2. I can't donate right now, but I'll pass the word and keep your friend in my prayers.
