Hello friends, family, and welcomed not-yet-met humans. My name is Nate Eggert, and my Chocolate Labrador Shady and I need your help.

Shady has a serious ligament tear in his back leg, or a "Ruptured Anterior Cranial Ligament" (ACL, basically the same as in human legs), which requires several more tests and a major surgery as soon as possible. He is currently unable to walk on it, and it's only getting worse each day, increasing his risk for irreversible movement loss and arthritis, and endangering the use of his other legs as well.

The operation is sadly very pricy and on a recent Art School Graduate's budget, I just cannot get there alone. I am not one to ask for help, so please know that if I am, it's a pretty serious ordeal. My dog is my child, and I know most you feel the same way.

It makes me so sad to see my big strong slobbery bear of a son hopping around on three legs, when I know there is something that can be done to take his pain away and get all of his paws back on the ground.

Anything you can give to help us make that happen is unexplainably appreciated and I speak for Shady when I say, "Bark bark, sniff sniff sniff, licky-kiss, head tilt, paw-shake, please give me your food, sniff bark I love you."

Thank you all for even reading, and please send this to anyone you know who knows what it's like to be loved by a furry someone no matter how bad they are feeling.

Lots of drooly love,
Nate + Shady
