All of the funds raised here will go directly to the care of Gage. The kindest gentlest Chocolate Lab.

On May6th, of 2006, the love of my life passed away right in my arms after a lengthy hospital stay. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to overcome,watching the woman I love slowly degenerate before my eyes. All that I have left from my Becky, is our old pup Gage.

Gage is my partner, my friend, my confidant and more all rolled up into a beautiful Chocolate Lab. Having him, is like still having a piece of Becky with me.

Recently, Ive noticed that Gage has changed his day-to-day behavior by staying out in the yard for very long stretches of time.(He is of course, my best friend, so I notice any little thing) Then on August 11th of this year, he woke up in a puddle of his own urine. This was absolutely shocking. He never has accidents in the house, and will come wake me in the night if he needs to go outside. This continued throughout the weekend.(After many doggie baths and floor mop pings)

I took Gage to the Vet that Monday morning,on the 13th. There, they preformed an X-ray and took blood and a urine sample. The X-ray showed a large mass pressing against his bladder which is making it very hard for the pup to urinate.That is why he would wake in a puddle, his bladder was so full, that it would eventually just leak out.

When the bloodwork and urinalysis results came back, the doctor informed me that Gage will need an ultrasound and a biopsy.

I was recently laid of from work, as many other individuals have been,but I'm managing to keep Gage and I happy,but this was totally unexpected. The initial visit, with all of the tests and medication came to almost 600 dollars, and that cost me all of my savings.

To preform the biopsy and the ultrasound is another 661 dollars, which at this time, I just do not have.

Gage, is my best friend. He's all I have left from my Becky. If anyone can help, even just a little, I would be eternally grateful. I'm sure that I could get one test done, and then the other as I acquire the funds.

I look at him, and see that he's uncomfortable, and it breaks my heart. Please, when you read this, try and remember what its like to have a dog that loves you as much as you love him.

I believe in paying forward. When I get back to full time work, I will definitely return to this site, and make contributions.

Thank you for taking a few minutes to read this.
Very sincerely A.J. and Gage
