A man willing to sell a car and lose his job to save his canine friend
R-B musician Randy Etter knew something was wrong with his dog, Gemini when the puppy started vomiting. Gemini’s rapid weight loss – from 95 to 70 pounds – over a very short period of time was also a concern.
The culprit? An intestinal blockage caused by the ingestion of a plastic bottle cap three weeks earlier while playing.
The verdict? Direct.
Gemini will die today if he is not operated on, the vet told Etter as they sat in the examination room.
The price? More than Etter could afford.
They went down the street. Another clinic. Another dollar figure well beyond Etter’s reach. Each time, it seemed to increase. Three thousand dollars. Four thousand. Six.
