Funds collected will be used solely for Twinkie's surgery and aftercare.

Twinkie is my beloved English Bulldog puppy. She is 6 months old and is the sweetest puppy you have ever met. She makes a lasting impression with everyone she meets.

Unfortunately, Twinkie has succumbed to a genetic condition called Entropian in both eyes (this causes the eyelids to roll inwards into the eyes and the fur rubs directly on the eye) and also Distichiasis (abnormal growth of eyelashes which grow and touch the eye directly).

During the past month, Twinkies condition has deteriorated and was taken to an Ophthamology specialist at the University of Pennsylvania. Twinkie is already suffering consequences of her condition and has developed an ulceration on her one eye which can lead to blindness. As a protective effort, she has had a contact lenses placed on this eye in an effort to help heal the area and prevent further damage.

Twinkie is scheduled for surgery on March 27th, and unless she has this corrective surgery done, due to the extent of her Entropian and Distichiasis, she may lose her eyesight.

A donation of any kind would be greatly appreciated because I do not have the money to cover the entire cost of this surgery.

It is my hope for the future that Twinkie can be a therapy dog visiting Nursing Homes, etc... to brighten peoples day. She has a gift from God that makes everyone smile.

Thank you for your time and god bless.
