I rarely deviate from the world of food/travel on Glass of Win, but this is one of those moments in life when I need to temporarily push everything else aside and ask the world for some help. Last week my childhood friend Annie told me her dog, Penny, needs surgery. Penny is not even five years old but she has to have TPLO surgery to help correct a abnormal knee angle, and repair torn ligaments in her knee. The vet told Annie this is more than likely genetics and was not caused by any one action in particular. Everyone in Penny’s life is coming together to try and raise the money it is going to take for her to have this surgery and her subsequent post-op therapy.
I’m not one for guilt-tripping tactics or going into excruciatingly saccharine detail on the love Penny’s family & friends have in their hearts for her; that is neither here nor there. The bottom line is that I would never post anything so vulnerable unless it was of the utmost importance. Penny is an essential member of the McKenna-Arellano clan and an animal that must rely on human intervention and technology to give her a better quality of life. End of story.
No worries if you can’t donate. This is my singular post on the matter, though I will update it as new ways to donate become available. Keep an eye out for virtual yard sales, Penny buttons, and some good old fashion geekery where proceeds will go toward the Penny Pool. In the meantime, for straight up donations please click the button below.
Thanks for reading. Please feel free to spread this post like wild fire, Penny needs all the help the internet can offer! <3
