Cowgirl Needs Our Help

My business partner, and one of my dearest friends, Traci Suzanne Marvel, has the purest heart of anyone I know.  She has always given so much to so many with no expectations in return. Now it's my hope that she gets her turn to get something back for all she has done for others.  Her dog Cowgirl has Cancer. She has taken Cowgirl in for radiation which has helped, but Cowgirl needs more help. 

Some, believe this is only an animal and doing so much is ridiculous. It's okay to believe that way, but there are many others who feel that we are our beloved pets advocates and it is our duty to help them as much as we can. Traci is one of those people.

Cowgirl and Cowboy are brother and sister. They are the sweetest dogs. Cowgirl and Cowboy are not just dogs. They are souls who have found their way deep in the heart of Traci and so many others. They are pets like your pets. They love us, let us cry on their shoulders, wait patiently until we come home, tails always wagging, and doing their dances. They rely on us for food, water, shelter, warmth, and most of all love. We are their caregivers. We are also responsible for their health. Some of us take that farther than others. Traci feels the need to do ALL she can as Cowgirls caregiver and family. However without the funds to do this it makes it hard. Some would just say, "Hey, I can't afford to do any more." but not Traci. She is finding a way to get the money to do what needs done. She is not only planning on helping HER pet but others as well.

With every tragedy, there are lessons to be learned. One of the things we have learned through this process is that sometimes the people who desperately want to do everything possible for their beloved pets can't afford to do so. Because of this we have realized the need to form a way for people to get the money they need. Once Cowgirls needs have been met, the fund raising will continue in different forms to help others.

If you feel in your heart that you want to help you can go to Traci's blog. One of her fund raisers is a coffee and tea company, there is a donate button where you can donate directly using PayPal, and she has an etsy store where she is selling her art. 

Just remember. Everyone makes their own choices. Hers is to help Cowgirl and eventually other pets the best way she knows how. Your choice might be to help too. If so, I thank you.
