Punchy Savings

Featured on Episode 9

When Punchy was attacked by another dog over Christmas, complete strangers offered to help his owners, Nanette and Brian. The assistance came in the form of donations toward vet bills, via GoFundMe.

Now that the crisis has passed, Punchy's owners are trying to get the other dog's owner to pay for the vet costs. Nanette and Brian don't want to keep the money, instead they hope to donate it to the Almost Home Animal Shelter and Adoption Center which supported the family during the ordeal.

Here are some images that Nanette posted about the process and endlessly entertaining pups...

Punchy after surgery with Nanette Nanette's Instagram caption: Punchy is doing as well as he possibly can be for everything he's been through. We got to visit him again today & was wagging his tail so hard despite all the hind quarter injuries. He was allowed to walk out of the cage & came over & just laid his precious little head on my knee (cuddle champion) & kept it there the whole entire time. They took him out today & he peed. Still won't eat, but sometimes he won't eat if he decides he's scared of hardwood floors that day. He's also resting more comfortably, rather than just standing all day. He still has a long road ahead of him & still has a high risk of infection, possibly more surgeries, but for now this is great news. I wanted to crawl in the cage with him & stay until he's able to come home, because when he put his little head on my knee, my heart felt whole again. Thank you all again, you're all part of this. Thank you for all of your comments of well wishes too & sharing similar stories with me , I read all of them & they mean so much, even if I don't respond. I was running on 3 hours of sleep & no food yesterday & also have a pretty sore hand still, so making an abundance of words go from my brain to my finger wasn't really happening. So much love to y'all! Keep sending good vibes!!

Nanette & baby Punchy Nanette's Instagram caption: Since it's #mcm & my main squeeze (besides the human guy I married whatever) is on the mend, here's a pic of us falling in love almost 6 years ago. Brian was working nightshift at the time (aka working all night/sleeping all day), so it was just me & this dude together 24/7. I'd only had cats before & wasn't too happy when Brian randomly brought home a tiny puppy (aka lots of work that he wouldn't be around to help with) after work. Obviously I got way over that way fast & an epic love story ensued. Don't mind my socks, I'm a hobo.

Go Go Nanette's Instagram caption: All of you, seriously. Thank you for all the shares too, please keep. And just for everything you're doing. A huge piece of my heart is missing. And positive thoughts are appreciated too, because Punchy needs to be ok too even if he's able to get the surgery.

Go Go & Brian Nanette's Instagram caption: Punchy is out of surgery. His injuries are very severe & they had to do a more aggressive surgery than they thought this morning. The surgery went as well as it could for him being so injured, but he may need more surgery & will definitely need more follow up care, so please keep sharing his page. Thank you all so much. (P.s. This is my view right now. Go Go is being so sweet & loving & understanding. We just all want out other puzzle piece back)
