We are only $205 short of what is needed to pick up Booty from the hospital on Monday! YEAH! Thank you Arthur and Rob for the NYC Challenge!!
Booty had surgery Thursday afternoon, Sept 23. He is in recovery now.
Booty came to us with an urgent plea from the shelter: ” Little tzu (sic) with HUGE tumor needs rescue NOW. ”
Well, when I saw the picture below, I gulped. After going through the surgery with Voltaire ( who is doing wonderfully, by the way), I knew a tumor this large could mean nothing good. But, I decided to pull him out of the shelter and at least give him the dignity to be put to sleep in someone’s arms.
I sent him to my vet to get a quick work up and you can not believe my shock when the vet said this looked like a hernia, not a tumor. OMG.
So, off to Gulf Coast and the amazing Dr. Heidi Hottinger went Mr. Booty.

This very adorable little lhasa boy was left at a local shelter. Very, very sweet. Beautiful coat. But, ahem – nasty larger tumor on his rear.
We had to schedule the surgery quickly. I was worried that his intestines might strangulate at any moment causing him to die. I was so worried, I didn’t leave him alone for longer than four hours at all.
The cost of surgery was estimated at $1800-$2200. Our vet has already done the bloodwork and x-ray workups for approximately $500. Please help us help this little cutie pie. Later, we’ll need to do heartworm treatment, but right now we just have to pay for the hernia surgery.
No more BIG TUMOR-ISH lump hanging off his rear. Isn’t he cute?
He stayed in ICU at Gulf Coast over the weekend. I suspect I’ll be picking him up on Monday. So, we need to have his funds available at that time. Right now, we are about $200 short of what we’ll need to get him out of the hospital.
