To raise money for our dog Rooster to have a total (titanium) hip replacement. Funds will be used toward vet bills- the hip alone is $1800.

*Update: We have also received donations from Chris and from Barb, our total raised is now $450. Rooster says thank you, and we are moved beyond words.

Rooster Cogburn is a one year old Great Pyrenees/Husky/Old English Sheepdog puppy who needs a total hip replacement for his right hip. He was born with severe hip dysplasia and we recently found out only 10% of his hipbone in the right place. It is starting to rub together bone on bone and he is in pain. We had two choices: wait and see how it goes because the pain should subside in a couple months and then return when he is around eight years old, or get a total hip replacement. The latter seemed the most humane to us since the recovery is very quick and then he will be able to run and play at the dog park without getting trounced by the other dogs.

He will be undergoing surgery in the next few weeks at Tufts Animal Hospital in Massachusetts where we are being referred by our veterinarian. Please contact me if you would like more information about our poochy or the surgical procedure.

Thank you for any and all support; emails are welcome, especially personal stories of others who have been through similar situations.

Love, Rooster Haberdashery Cogburn, Emma & Tim
