My life revolves around my five dogs, adventure, and gis. I started this blog to share gis data freely with the public. I never wanted my personal life, political views, or random jargon to appear here. But life happens. On the day after Thanksgiving, our dog was diagnosed with Hemagiosarcoma (heart cancer). Our local vet said he had a few days left to live. We immediately started a raw diet, got him on chinese herbs and supplements, and are moving forward with surgery on his heart to remove the tumor. Post surgery, we will be doing chemo. We started a gofundme to try and help pay for some of the vet bills that are starting to pile up. If you have ever used my blog or found the data I have hosted useful, and can help support Charlie’s surgery and recovery, my family would greatly appreciate it.
