Tyler sladen’s 6 year old Golden Retriver, Archie tore his acl, we got a few quotes on the surgery and it’s upwards over $2,000 if it can’t be done we might have to put a healthy dog to sleep due to constant pain and suffering, he can’t even get a up a set of two steps. It’s the saddest thing I’ve ever had to watch.. he’s my bestfriend any donations are a HUGE help..
“I’ve never seen my dog so sad, in so much pain, so unammussed by his tennis ball or bone. 3,600 for surgery is obscene.”

selling prints to raise money and doing photoshoots to raise money so i can see my bestfriend walk again and won’t have to put him to sleep.”
Please help if you can.
RIP archie =/
Left side are the same boots after running 12 miles. I finished 6th place out of 53. Through rocks, sand and uneven tank trails. Ate a banana and some trail mix mid run.
I was asked the other day what I do to clear my head, how I stay sane and how I deal with distance from everyone I hold close in my life, usually I’m quick to answer, but I actually put some thought into my answer, because I don’t manage to deal with the distance I’m forced to deal with honestly, I’ve seen my mom, sisters and best friends 10 days since march 5th. before then I’d take time with those people for granted, I used to spend weeks with My Dog, Jimmy, Jcope, Danica and my family. now I’d give anything to spend an hour with them, I’d give my own life to see my Dog one last time. Over the years I’ve become to good at hiding my own emotions, true feelings and they’re the kind of feelings that will deteriorate ones soul from the inside out over time. I’ve given up so many great things in my life for personal gain and pride. The Army makes me never want to stop bettering myself, pushing myself. I can’t even begin to put into words how much it’s changed me honestly. I’ve been setting goals for myself and reaching all my goals, I signed up for college, bought a nice car, I can run close to a marathon, I can cycle all day, I can ruck for miles with more weight than I ever thought I’d be able to endure. I’m training up for Air Assault school and the spartan Death race in March, I’ve lost over 50 pounds this past year and begun to put good weight back on, but what does that all mean if you’re not happy, I’m happy about what I’ve done but not about how distant everyone important to me has become. It’s great to hear how proud everyone is but in reality it doesn’t change a damn thing.
