Dog for Dawsyn

My mom's cousin's daughter (yes, I can draw you a map if you like) has a little girl who has some pretty severe health issues. Her name is Dawsyn and she suffers from a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet's Syndrome (Severe Myoclonic Epilepsy of Infancy).

Her mom started a website to help raise money for Dawsyn to get a Seizure Alert Assistance dog. Dawsyn has been approved, but now it's about raising money for her. The website is still in infancy stages and donating is a little complicated - you have to go to the 4Paws website and donate in Dawsyn's name (Dawsyn Harke).

Dawsyn is, from all reports, a real sweetie pie who has numerous seizures a day. She deserves to have anything to make life easier on herself and her family. If a couple of dollars can make a difference, then who am I not to try and help?


  1. Great Idea. I will promote it too.
    And make a contribution via the website, to try it out.
    Also I like your new header very much. Good old Monty boy.

  2. Love the pic of Montel in the shade. A whole lot better than Chuck Norris!

  3. To say Dawysn is a sweetie is not saying enough. Count me in for a donation.

  4. Thank you Bronwyn for your plug on our behalf! Your family has always been so precious to me. I wish we had stayed in closer contact over the years. I'd really like to rectify that!!
