"I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me they are the role model for being alive." - Gilda Radner

This fundraiser is to help pay medical bills for Takai, our beloved American Pit Bull and friend, who spent many days undergoing treatment at Dove Lewis Animal Hospital in Portland, OR for Dog Prostatitis and an infection caused by this disease. Due to his condition he was in extreme pain and prone to futher infections so had to be kept under 24 hour medical supervision which many of you may know is extremely expensive. Unfortunately we did not have pet insurance for Takai and the costs to maintain his medical care quickly reached more than $6500.

It is with great sadness that I must report Takai lost his battle and on Friday December 3rd Leland was forced to make the most difficult decision to put Takai at rest. There is an emptiness in our lives but his memory will live on with all those who had the opportunity to know Takai. He brought such joy to our lives and taught us all how to live life and love unconditionally. You will be forever missed.

Thank you to all those who kept Takai in their thoughts and prayers. We know he gave all he could to fight the infection but unfortunately it was a battle he could not win. We know he is in peace and running the fields with the other loved animals we all have lost throughout our lives. God bless and if you currently have a pet please give them an extra hug in memory of Takai.
