Recently one of our dogs was horribly injured by another animal. We too were faced with a decision and a budget.

I was terrified to pick him up wondering how I was gong to pay that bill. When I got there the bill was for almost exactly what I’d said I could afford plus tax. After 8 weeks, he’s just about back to his old self. KIndness comes in all forms.
