    Hello fans of Spiderman the pit bull,

    Thank you all for your strong support of Spiderman!

    We just got back from the vet, and of course the vet bills are going to be much more than we anticipated! Spiderman's leg is broken with some splintering, so they are going to insert an external fixator, which looks like scaffolding on a dogs leg. His surgery is scheduled for Friday morning with AN EXCELLENT orthopedic surgeon that I used to work with at one of my previous vet jobs. His prognosis is excellent and they say a young dog like this should heal quickly and go on without any problems, and could EVEN excel at dog sports.

    The grand total estimate is $1300 - $1500.

    I need at least half by Friday, and I am no where near close. Please forward this to anyone you think may be able to contribute even $1, $5, $10!

    If you have trouble donating, FYI, it makes you enter a donation amount before you log in toward the bottom right. If you still have trouble, just send a payment to my paypal email address:
    amanda@pitbull-chat.com. I am not using the account for anything else so I will know what the funds are for even if it isn't specifically labeled for Spiderman.

    PS - Thanks Ivedtch for supplying the latest donation!! I had wondered who it was ... :)

    Ok, I made a note and then found yours and uploaded it. I also emailed some people too. It seems as though everyone I know is kind of strapped right now, but hopefull there will be some more donations.

    :aww: I am friggin falling in love with Spidey ... he doesnt act like any pit bulls I have ever met. He is really calm & sensitive & has confidence issues. We wonder if the man of the house abused him too. All we want to do is hold him and tell him it will all be different now ...
