Ruthie Mae is a very special dog. She is the assist dog and companion of a very special person. Ruthie Mae enables Michelle, despite her chronic illnesses and disability, to live a full, independent life.
As Michelle writes:
She inspires me. She gets me outside. She helps me want to keep going when sickness and all that comes with that, gets me down, and it does get a person down.
But, Ruthie Mae has health issues of her own. She has a rare, but treatable digestive disorder, Hemorrhagic Gastroenteritis (HGE). As a result, she must eat only special canned dog food that comes with a high price tag. As well, there is Ruthie Mae’s vet bill.
That’s why Michelle has set up a “gofundme” page for Ruthie Mae: Help the Sweetest Dog in the World. More of Ruthie Mae’s story is also found on Face Book: Ruthie Mae’s Tender Tummy, and Michelle’s blog: Dogkisses.
What ever amount you can give to help provide Ruthie Mae with her prescription dog food, existing and future vet bills, will be very much appreciated.
I think you will agree, after reading Ruthie Mae and Michelle’s story at the sites listed above, that both are very special and deserve compassion and assistance.
