Pixie & Nora Need Your Help!

Most of you remember the adorable amigurumi I made for my friend Nora Blansett. I made a pet tribute named Pixie. I absolutely loved making Pixie. I couldn't stop looking at her picture because she is so darn cute!

Unfortunately Pixie is now sick, very sick, and Pixie and her owner Nora need our help.

Nora has set up an auction on Facebook at her page http://www.facebook.com/BorealisArt Not only am I donating an amigurumi, but I'm also donating my proceeds from my November sales to Pixie's health fund! You can see the auction on Facebook. So please SPREAD THE WORD, and order your amigurumi today! Help this adorable dog and her loving master.

Pixie's situation, in Nora's own words:
My dog, my beloved Pixie, is very sick. She has multiple tumours and the doctor is pretty sure she has breast cancer. So here's the thing: I need to raise $1200. NOW. She has to have major surgery right away -- and fact is, I don't have $1200. I'm selling everything. EVERYTHING. The originals will start at $25. Just $25. The bidding will go for a week for each piece and bidding must be in $1 increments. Ever want a $500 painting for the cost of a pizza? Now is your chance. My art doesn't mean anything to me without my Pixie. Shipping is $10 and not included in the price. Multiple purchases can be combined. I *WILL* be adding more ART, DOLLS and JEWELLERY over the days and weeks ahead. If what you want isn't here yet, it will be. I've had some questions about donating -- and I will gladly accept them by paypal: BorealisArt@yahoo.ca I'm going to scan in the veterinary hospital estimate, Pixie's photo, give a little background and set up an "Event" with all the information. I'm really disorganized right now. I knew when I felt the tumours what they were and got her to the vet immediately, but the reality is setting in and instead of feeling more together, I'm actually feeling MORE disorganized. Pixie wasn't spayed because I'd hoped to have a litter... just one pup... for when she's gone. She has refused every single stud I've offered her. I suppose she always knew that she'd be one-of-a-kind to me. When I went to see about getting her spayed, I was informed she had a massive heart problem. I decided NOT to risk it, and now the fact that she never had litter and is still intact has caused her to develop breast tumours. She's seven, and the doc said this isn't "unexpected" -- but I prayed a lot over the years to spare her any problems associated with not being spayed. Unfortunately, my fears have happened and at the very worst time, too. Those of you who will be bidding or donating have my most sincere thanks. There aren't any words I can tell you to explain what this will mean to me.
