    Story

    'Gorgeous George' - what can I say .....
    I have known him for just under a year - I am his ' dog - walker' !

    George lives and breathes for the sea ..... that and rolling in the sand !

    George needs unexpected immediate veterinary treatment for an aggressive growth that has appeared on his foot. His owner, Thelma , has been advised that George will need to have one toe removed to ensure the complete removal of all the growth.

    George is already booked in for his surgery, I will be dropping him at the vets first thing Monday morning.

    The veterinary costs have been estimated at between £550 - £800, depending on the length of time the surgery takes.

    Thelma is devastated, George is her sole companion now and the idea that she will struggle to provide for him is a heavy burden.

    George is a great dog, he lives for the moment and we could all learn how to enjoy the simple pleasures from him.
    I feel its a privilege to spend time with him, time that Thelma doesn't get because she is unable to walk him. George is a large, boisterous lad and rather a handful. Thelma has had to rely on other people to walk George since the loss of her husband.

    Thelma is lovely, a gentle lady who has had to sacrifice much recently, and most of those have been made to keep George happy.

    I know as pet owners we are responsible for them, sometimes though, we just need a little help and kindness.

    I am hoping that there is some out there and that we can help Thelma get George back on his feet - minus 1 toe of course !

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, Nikki

      Yesterday George had his first walk on the beach since his 'toe op' .... needless to say he was very excited ! It didn't bother him that we had to wait ages to cross the road to get to the beach and it didn't bother him that it rained ..... George was back on the beach :-) Thank you so much to everyone who has donated on George's page, and everyone who has asked after him. You have all been marvellous ......

      We have just got back from Georges second check up since his op last Monday. GOOD NEWS - it has been confirmed that the entire growth was removed and also that it was benign. George can now carry on with his recovery and dear Thelma can sleep peacefully in the knowledge that there will be no further surgery necessary. He is suffering a little from 'cabin fever' but I have promised him some special beach time once he has had his stitches removed and has the all clear from the vet ! Thank you everyone for your continued support x x x

      I have just been given an anonymous £50 donation towards George's ongoing veterinary bill, by one of my dog-walking clients ...... Thank you I will be taking George and Thelma along to the vet later this afternoon for his second follow up visit. Check in again later for an update on Gorgeous George :-)

      The pictures of George enjoying his walks always make me smile. His face express's the sense of freedom and pleasure he feels. I hope he is back on the beach very soon.
