Lord Stafford was not impressed by the 5 am wake up call to make our way to Alta Vista Animal Hospital this AM! AND yes, that IS his hind leg in that position! 

He wants to send out a big thanks to all of his supporters and fans in helpingus get a deposit together for his two procedures today. I am very humbled by how much people really value and, believe in the work we do at BHRR! Thank you!

Today, he is having an urgent neuter to address his urinary issues – blood, frequent urination, straining to pee, enlarged prostrate etc. plus Dr. Bruce is doing an airway assessment under anesthetic. 

BHRR's Stafford's bills to date since his arrival to BHRR have been over $2,800 and, this is before his possible dental and, any airway surgery – depending on what Dr. Bruce finds. 

Today's bill procedures are over $1,030.00 and, he is worth every penny! 

The estimate put together should he need the larynx surgery is over $3,000.

Donations can still be made direct to Alta Vista Animal Hospital under 'Stafford' or under our rescue number of 613-725-4279 or the account number is #032738

Our honorary giant is incurring giant bills! 

He could not be in more expert hands today and, I shall update as I can.

AND, our 3rd ANNUAL 'Give It Up 4 Autumn' Fundraiser ended last night and, all monies raised will go towards his bills also. I am beginning to contact our 26 participants later today! Thanks to all that 'played' 

My last but never least thanks is sent to Lesley of KAH for covering me until I can arrive for my shift. With having to drop off Lord Stafford for 7 AM, I was not able to make my 7:30 am shift and, I keep saying it, I work with some of the best of the best! 

He even met a wonderful man that was dropping off his Shar Pei for eye surgery and, has owned two Bulldogs in the past. He sat on the ground and the both of them loved on each other for some time! He took our website info. to follow Lord Stafford's journey!
