The Good Sami - And I'm not talking sandwich

You may remember my Boxer friend Sassy Mae, who was severely injured in 2009 and needed extensive veterinary care. So, Roger and I pulled our resources together and held a gourmet biscuit fund drive to help curtail the costs of her vast vet bills. Of course, I was the brains behind the operation while Roger used his dog-given French culinary skills to perfect the recipes.

Sami on the mend after surgery

Unfortunately, we are once again faced with a similar situation. Sami, named for the Good Samaritan who brought her into an ER clinic, is also in need of our help. She was found alongside the road on a very cold and snowy night, suffering from serious injuries after being hit by a car. Attempts to locate her owner have proven futile, so she was turned over to Adopt A Boxer Rescue (AABR) and surgery to correct the break was performed on February 25. You can read her full story on AABR's website.

Aunt Beth Downey, who is fostering Sami until she is fully recovered and available for adoption, reports that she is a very sweet, friendly Boxer girl despite the pain she has endured. Mom and I were fortunate enough to meet Sami when we recently attended the Celtic Classic Dog show in York, PA, and we agree that she is a cutie!

Aunt Beth gives Sami the much needed TLC to recover

Donations to help cover Sami's high medical bills, estimated to be more than $2,500, are desperately needed. If you can help AABR with a tax deductible donation, please note that the donation is for Sami in Maryland. You can submit your donation through PayPal or by check. No donation is too small and all contributions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you for helping us to save Sami and help her find her fur-ever home! Again, please note the donation is for Sami in Maryland.
