My Little Harley

About a week and a half ago Harley and Chopper were in the yard playing rough. Later that night I was scratching Harleys neck and there was a lump under the skin what was pretty big, and a scab on top of it. Since the lump had a scab I figured it wasnt a tumor or anything like that. My Jack Russell group also said everything was finw with it. I had avoided the vet. Monday night Harley didnt come to bed, which was unusual for him. He always sleeps at my feet. Tuesday he was acting weird. He was staying downstairs and not playing like normal. Tuesday night Chopper was licking Harleys neck where the scab was. I didnt think anything of it. Today when Harley jumped on my lap thats when I saw how bad it was. The hair is missing around the sore at least as big as a nickle if not larger. The sore is pretty deep and nasty looking. I asked my JRT group what they thought and they said he needed to be seen. I was really worried about how I was going to pay for it. One of the ladies said a rough est. was around $200!!! I made a comment about the vet taking payments. I got a private email off list from a group member telling me that they would take care of everything. They said give me the number to the vet and it will be taken care of! I started to cry when I read those words. This person doesnt even know me! They have never met me, never talked to me on the phone. We just wrote posts on the group site. I was amazed at how nice they would be to a stranger. Im still in shock. They dont even know whats wrong with Harley or how much it will cost to fix! Thank you god for nice people! So now the worry is gone and I get to take Harley to the vet tomorrow and get him fixed up. Thank you for that! The world would be a better place if there were more people like you in it!
