Help Little Trista Get Better!

 photo trista_zpszrmcp4mz.pngFor being only a year old Trista sure has been through a lot. Originally housed in a shelter in Louisiana, from there she was driven all the way to a shelter here in Vermont. You see down south shelters are overcrowded and pups are often euthanized if a home is not found for them fast enough. It’s because of this that volunteers have started to transfer pups up north so that they are spared and given a chance to find a loving home.

Trista was one of those pups. When we adopted her late last year all we knew really was that she’d come from Louisiana and that she’d been treated for heartworm. We were assured that she’d completed treatment and was in good health. Given how happy, playful and loving she is we had no reason to think otherwise!

We bring our pups in every spring for yearly check ups to make sure they’re healthy. Because of her previous run in with heartworm Trista was tested for it and to our shock it came back positive. Trista was given a second more thorough test for heartworm as pups who’ve been treated for it sometimes give false positives. Unfortunately that test too came back positive.

In addition to that unfortunate development a lump on her abdomen that we were assured by the shelter was nothing was in fact a hernia.

Trista has been a beacon of love, joy and entertainment for us in the short time she has been a part of our family. We love her and are committed to seeing that she gets healthy. We need help though.

All told, between the heartworm treatments, the surgery for her hernia, and the follow up visits for both, her Veterinarian bills are expected to total at least $1600, possibly more. This is simply too much for us to handle on our own. So with great reservation we’re asking for your help.

If you’re in a position to help we’d truly appreciate it. Any amount, large or small, helps. We love Trista. She enriches our lives so much that the least we can do is make sure that she is healthy and happy.

Please help if you can and share this please. Thank you so much.

Love,

Adam, Cathy, Scooby & Trista

WATERLOO, Iowa—The most decorated amateur wrestler in professional wrestling history, Kurt Angle, will attend the 2015 George Tragos/Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame. Hall of Fame weekend takes place on July 9-11 in Waterloo, Iowa.

Angle was inducted into the Tragos/Thesz Hall of Fame in 2013 but was unable to attend.

“Kurt Angle is arguably the greatest athlete to step foot in a wrestling ring,” said Kyle Klingman, director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum. “His athletic background is second to none. We are honored that he will participate in our hall of fame week. This is truly special for everyone involved.”

Angle won NCAA championships at heavyweight for Clarion in 1990 and 1992. He went on to win a freestyle World championship in 1995 and an Olympic gold medal at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, both at 220 pounds. Angle continues to have a highly successful professional wrestling career, winning every major title at every level. He has won World titles with both WWE and TNA.

This year’s induction ceremony marks the 20-year anniversary of Angle’s 1995 World championship. The National Wrestling Hall of Fame Dan Gable Museum will have a special ring presentation to recognize Angle’s historic accomplishment.

“I’m excited that Kurt will be in my hometown of Waterloo,” said museum namesake Dan Gable, also a World and Olympic champion. “Kurt was part of a very successful era of international wrestling for the United States. We need to have that kind of success again.”

All-access passes to the George Tragos/Lou Thesz Hall of Fame induction weekend are available for $100. They can by contacting the Dan Gable Museum at dgmstaff@nwhof.org or by calling (319) 233-0745.

A full schedule of events will be released on a later date.
