Hi, My name is Baba!
I'm a 10 years old poodle, living with my mom and dad who loves me so much. And woof! I love them too! Especially my mommy. We basically grew up together, she was 13 when I first saw her with my puppy eyes. But now, as you can tell, I'm an old lady... But not old enough to leave my mommy behind. I have so much bark to give and belly rubbing to get! I want to enjoy being the one who protect mommy from the post-man, or from the neighbor's dog who always wags her tail at mommy, woof! I don't like that beast! But all in all, i am the kindest and calmest poodle you ever saw. I don't have a fancy hairstyle like some princesses, but I love the one I get from mommy! Especially the warm bath and massage I get after haircut, those times are the bests! I love to stare out the window and follow the passing people, squirrels or birds with my eyes. Well, with one of them, that doesn't hurt. You see, I have a tumor of some sort just on my eyelid what irritates my eye. I try to rub it away with my little paws but it just won't let me be. What a sneaky fella it is... Just like the one on my chest. A year ago I had a big scary surgery to remove most of my nipples and many scary mammary tumors that were hiding under my skin. The doctors found out they were cancerous. I'm a dog, I don't know what cancer is, but it sure sounds scary. Mommy and the doctors were hoping with removing them they would never come back, but unfortunately, they did. My mommy spent a lot of shiny coins on the surgery and other veterinary bills in the passed few months, so that I could keep barking as a good poodle, but she seems to be worrying a lot nowadays that she won't be able to save me this time. She cries days after days, that she can't help her best friend. You see, mommy gonna have a baby soon, and I really want to see the little human to be born! I want to be the one to protect my new master during her napping! Woof, I want to nap with her! I would love to have an other pair of hands rubbing my belly and giving me kisses. That's my doggy dream!
So, if you can, please, help me and my mommy raise some of those shiny coins, so that I can stay with my loving family for a little longer! I am an old lady, but still young to give up the bark and belly rubs.
With all the doggy respect,
Baba, the poodle
And her parents, I.N. (Laura) and Jess. We appreciate all the donation we can get. We feel very ashamed to ask for help... But we feel very lost this time. Baba needs this surgery as soon as possible, or she might loose her sight on one eye and the tumors can multiply very fast, just like it did a year ago. Baba is family, she isn't just a dog to us. We don't want her to suffer, she deserves so much more. She isn't ready to give up...
