OP has made a post with some basic info:
Quote:
Now, in abreviated format:
Dog sleeps sprawled out, rarely curled up (as usual) sleeps with head either propped up, or spilling out of bed with head at lowest point of body.
Often wakes from dead sleep, hot and panting-almost ready to sweat, wants to: go outside-cool off, drink or want chilled food.
painfully moan with every move throughout the night, often during day.
Eyes red and almost appear bulging-off and on
having difficulty going upstairs, uncomfortable going down
Collar appears to be getting tighter
stomach slightly distended.
still eats, drinks, deficates/urinates
been on Cephalexin for extended period for perpetual ear
infection
often seems stiff and sore
intermitently seems almost usual self then miserable
been coming on slowly over last few weeks. Sleeping issues-
infrequently since summer.
 
This took 2+ hrs, Hands quit-gotta stop now

Check on the top right of the basset.net page where it says "private messages". That is probably where she sent it.

Soundtrack now you have me thinking. Was in the process of sending money to a rescue called Dogs in Brazil. Checked out the web site and googled them and everything looked ok. Now I wonder.

Guys, i just read this for the first time and it's clearly a troll/joke. Enough posting that you can't post, and picking all kinds of font things and bold and losing posts. This looks exactly like something my husband and I would have posted 11 years ago as a joke to each other making fun of online people when we were dating (we met online lol).

Just use the private message feature on the board. If you click on my username a menu will come up including the option to send me a message.

Exactly my thoughts. This one D@me..... but every stroke takes time ...like it's not easier to punch the letter... a... instead of pushing cap and going up and punch @.

But here's the other thing, if indeed it's not a hoax then this person is going on day four of letting this hound be sick and hurting. There is no way I would let my dog hurt this long without coming up with something if I wanted people to help. I don't think I would be thinking of myself at a time like this. And this may sound bad but if my dog is hurting badly I would put it down before I would sit around and watch it suffer.

Four days? Really...... come up with something better than can;t type meds not working. Maybe like dog is doing better or something. We were suppose to have an update where is it?

My personal take on that is that I prefer to give locally, so that I know that my hard-earned $$$$ are going to people and dogs that actually exist. So I support organizations like Basset Hound Rescue of Ontario with donations and occasional emergency fostering. Ive dealt with them for years, I know the people (heck, a former board member has one of my "pups"). You can support your local rescue or shelter - if you can't give them money or are worried about how it is spent you can donate items (ask what they need) or that most valuable commodity - time. Not necessarily on the front lines either, one volunteer job I had was doing administrative assistant work in the office. As far as the big national organizations, there is often a lot of wastage and overhead - and sometimes they are actually misleading. For example, most people who donate to HSUS believe that their money goes to help shelter animals, whereas HSUS only gives less than 1% of what they make to shelters, most of their money is spent on lobbying and legislation. If you support lobbying and legislation, fine, but if you're expecting your money to actually go to caring for animals you might be a bit ticked. But there are plenty of needy people and animals right where I live that I can help if I want to make a difference.

Thanks Soundtrack. I do support our local Basset Rescue and have fostered, adopted, sent $$, and went to fundraisers. In fact just sent off email to ask if I can take donations for the garage sale the week before when I plan on going to one of the adoption functions called bark in the park. Also trying to arrange for the 2 girls to be in the Henderson Basset Waddle and will donate the $100 for them to be attendants. LVBR is about 90 miles away and so can't do as much volunteer work as I wished I could. I have done a home visit for them. But for some reason this article I was reading about Dogs in Brazil caught my eye. Since I have already started the process I guess I will send a few dollars and hope for the best. But I really want to thank Soundtrack for making me think about all the ways to get scammed and volunteering to find out if bassetdependent is a real person that needs our help or if it's a con job.

Yup, we give local. We've brought goods that were on a want list to daphneyland before. Hopefully when my new job starts on Tuesday, I can do more giving. But yeah...
Anyway...
