Hi, my name is Charlie, I am a chocolate Labrador aged 7 years old. I moved to my new owners 3 months ago which was a pleasant unexpected surprise as my previous owners decided to emigrate without me. I love my new family as I did have a serious weight issue which through playing, walking and a good diet I have managed to lose a significant amount of weight which has massively improved my life, as I am now able to go upstairs and watch over the little ones while I they are sleeping which means that I am with them all of the time. :-) Unfortunately a few weeks ago when I was play fighting with the little ones my new mummy noticed a lump on my tummy. I was wisked to the vets and my new family and I were given the worst possible news. The lovely vet who gave me lots of treats and cuddles explained that I have got a mammary tumour of a significant size which she believes is cancerous. She has quoted this price for the operation to remove 90% of it which will increase my life expectancy by at least 4 -5 years. My new owners are not rich by any definition except in oodles of love and cuddles. Everybody is very sad and even the little ones cry because without this operation I shall need to leave them soon. Insurance companies will not insure me as this is a pre-existing condition and I will need the operation straight away therefore I am begging for help with he costs something which hasn't come easy to my new owners who are desperate to not see me go. Thank you for reading my story. P.s any money left over from the operation will be donated to The Dog Trust charity.
