My Dad lost everything he owned in a house fire on 8/23/11.

Betty my Dad's friend was staying with him, recovering from surgery to repair her hip from a fall a few months before.

Betty's lost both her cats and her young Shih Tzu in the fire. Insurance does not cover the cost of replacing pets or the cost of cremating her beloved pets.

My Dad is having a difficult time, he can't get past the vision of the firemen carrying that little dog out of the house. He is filled with the guilt, of not being there to save there little lives.

As you can imagine they are both heartbroken, losing a pet is one of the worst things to have to live with.

My Dad took Betty to Petland in Arlington Hgts. She fell in love with a puppy, that cost $800. My Dad would do anything to take her pain away.

Both my Dad and Betty are Seniors and living on fixed incomes.

The problems started just after the puppy came home. within days, my Dad spent over $3200 in medical bills for Fluffy.

She went to the Vet for a cough, when the cough did not improve an X Ray found that the puppy had a carpet staple in her stomach which required emergency surgery. Two days later it was determined that the cough was in fact pneumonia and she had to spend several days in the hospital.

Dad fully expected that Petland would cover the medical expenses. He was mistaken, he was told by the Owner that puppies are sold AS IS, with a limited puppy warranty.

He was offered $400. which he respectfully refused.

My father is a man principles when it comes to right and wrong
