Stella has torn her anterior cruciate ligament - that's right, her ACL. Like she's a damn Olympic runner. Apparently, it's really common. The problem with this is that the surgery not only involves $1900 that I don't have, but will keep Stella on leash for a good two or three months. If you have ever met my dog, you know she loveslovesLOVES to run. In fact, she's doing pretty well for a dog with three useful legs. She's hopping after pigeons and rolling in the grass like nothing's wrong. Tell me you'd do that with a torn ligament.
Maybe I'll just have the vet prescribe some valium. For me. I think I'm defintely going to be more freaked out about this than she is.
If you want, (and I know you're all so tired of giving, my feelings won't be hurt if you can't) you can donate to her DropCash fund.
