A man and his dog.

Normally i don't do this sort of thing, and there are scams abound for real, but the sincerity of this fan seems like it's believable.

I'll let you decide, but read his note and at least give him a kind word if anything. Hope this helps pal!

IMAGINeye said the following:

How have you been?  I read you had a second child, congrats!  We talked a couple of times years ago and I have been a watcher ever since.  So even though we are basically strangers I'm writing because I need your help...

I have a 8 yr old English Bulldog named Tank.  Raised him since he was 3 months old and we have been the best of friends ever since.  Well he has fallen very ill...tumors, breathing problems, and a skin disease.  It's so much, but there is a tiny light of hope.  The doctor said if I could come up with $1500 dollars :faint: that would be enough to save him and extend his life greatly.  While it does sound like a lot of money I did the math. That if only 300 people donated just $5 dollars that goal could easily be obtained!

I need your help to spread the word.  As shallow as it sounds far more people read your journal than they do mine...normally I'm one who could care less about page views etc.  But in this case it could actually help and do some good!  I wrote about all of this and posted a pic of Tank's tumor on my journal to show people what is going on.  If you could write about it, let your watchers know, you have no idea just how grateful I would be.  I'm also open to any other ideas or suggestions.  Typically I would be able to have the funds myself.  But seeing I got let go from Activision due to downsizing times have been tough.  But I would do anything to help Tank get better, even toss my silly pride out the window.  Either way thanks for your time Omar...I hope you have a good day :manhug:


I really do thank you guys and I hope I have been of some use to you.

Asalaamu Alaikum = Peace be upon you!

Were I in a better position myself, I would send $5 at least. I've been through many a pet death, and it is saddening. However, I don't even have a dollar to my name, seeing as I can't seem to find a job (Michigan sucks) and I can barely afford to buy groceries with what money I do acquire.

Sometimes..... dead is better.

Oh man, I actually know this guy. I worked with him.
I gotta talk to him.

Unfortunately I can't see myself giving to this particular cause, if it were his mom or father , brother sister, maybe.This is going to sound mean, but sometimes we have to accept that death is part of the natural process. I'm sure tankster is an important part of his family, but maybe it is his time to go, now this may sound callous and it is not meant to be, but $1500 is alot of money for an operation. I think he should get a second opinion.

I would've donated... But a cop gave me a ticket, so now I'm 280 dollars short on money. Blame the cop >_>

I'm sorry for your trouble - I wish I could help.... but alas I too am poor. You could set up a donation pool at your deviant page.

It sounds like a scam to me... My mom has a friend who has had all kinds of special operations done on her dog and even the total amount doesn't come to $1500. It's possible it's real, but honestly I'm not inclined to believe anything over the internet... if it was a friend, or even a friend of a friend, I would be much more likely to help.
If this is a legitimate thing, I would encourage IMAGINeye to try this by word of mouth rather than the internet... It's less about the trustworthiness of the individual and more that you just can't trust ANYTHING on the internet.
