Story

On May 26th, I'll be running the Edinburgh marathon and I'd really like to help Cody (pictured above and in comments) walk an ordinary, pain-free, life by fundraising to help support the cost of the surgeries he needs to correct severe patella luxation and completely prevent eventual paralysis.

Whilst trying to be realistic with a target, I want to raise as much as possible! My sister Ally will also be doing the half-marathon on the same day!

Cody is my brother's 8 month old blue roan Cocker Spaniel.
After noticing that he doesn't walk quite right (and simply refuses to jump even for a treat!) he was taken for a check up resulting in xrays and consultations.

It turns out that Cody has very severe patella luxation in both his knees.
This means his knee caps are in completely the wrong place and requires a special orthopedic vet to perform surgery on both of his knees.

During surgery to fix the issue, the vets discovered he has no groove at all for the kneecap - so needs a prosthetic groove put in, meaning an additional 2 (very) expensive surgeries.

He also had a fracture on his shin from the stress of the knees up until now.. :(

Whilst Cody does have insurance, unfortunately even the maximum doesn't come close to the total cost of his consultations, xrays, surgeries, prosthetic implants and general recovery.

We're talking £10k+. :(

By donating absolutely any amount, you'll be directly contributing to his recovery, and I can't express how grateful I (and Cody!) am for the support.

He's an absolutely wonderful puppy, always happy and a joy to be around. You'd struggle to find a more loveable dog!
He's also got an absolutely amazing home and parents in my brother and his girlfriend Maria Grazia, and whilst they of course would do anything for him, I want to use the opportunity to provide support.

They also have no idea that I'm doing this!

Thanks so much! Promise visits and a trillion puppy cuddles in return for any amount donated!
