Hi my name is Teri Barnett, and I have a few questions about nonprofit organizations who help people with disabilities fund a dog.

In October I had make the worse decision of my life that I’ll never forget. My shih-tzu was 13yrs old who suffered with severe Arthritis. I keep thinking about that day wondering if he knew what was about to happen. In the waiting room he was scratching at my leg because he wanted me to pick him up. I broke down so bad that one of the receptionist came over to me, and said, “you can change your mind.” As much as I wanted to I just couldn’t. I tried everything possible to relieve his pain, but nothing was helping. Scooby was my emotional companion, and for my grandson.

I have a rare form of Cancer called Marginal Zone B-Cell Lymphoma. I’m no longer in remission, and at this point I’m going through non invasive Chemo. I also have Lupus, Sjogren’s Syndrome, Deep Vein Thrombosis, Pulmonory Embolism, Fibromyalgia, Chronic HTN, PTSD, Anxiety & Panic Disorder and depression.

Back in 1993 my husband and 2 children lived in Seattle, and we were on vacation to attend his sister’s wedding. We drove through the 16hr drive, and we were so tired. We took a couple of hours of sleep because that night was my brother’s birthday party. We were the only ones sober because we still were very tired. We decided to wait for my husband’s brother & his sister because they were so intoxicated. There was no way they could drive to my mother-in-law’s, so I was going to drive our car, and my husband was going to drive their car. We were watching T.V, and I looked out the window, and I saw my brother-in-law in an argument with someone. My husband and I went outside, and by that time they were literally fighting, and my husband was trying to break the fight up. Within seconds my husband became the victim. He was stabbed several times, and he died in my arms at 1:30am. His other sister‘s wedding was at 11am that morning. Our children were 6 & 7yrs old who were in the wedding. My husband was suppose to give her away, but that never happened. To this very day I’m still a widow. I never tried dating anyone, and not a day goes by without thinking of the tragic death of my husband. I had tried committing suicide twice.

In 2004 my daughter had a baby at the age of 17yrs old. At the time I was an RN working in L&D, and that day changed my life forever. I happened to be working when my daughter came in, and it was so beautiful and so amazing because to be able to deliver my first grandson. I worked 12hr shifts, and when I got home my grandson had a dried onesie on which was pee. She did everything wrong with him, so I started caring for him when I would get off work. My best friend watched him while I was working. I’ve had him since 2004 to present, and he’s now 16yrs old. My grandson has Asperger’s which is on the high spectrum of Autism. He also has Tourett’s, Cranium Pectus, seizures, Anxiety and Panic disorder and depression. He doesn’t know how to make friends, and he never goes outside. If I take him to the store he’ll start having anxiety and sometimes he’ll go into a full blown panic attack. My grandson sees a therapist every other week and a psychiatrist every month. When his therapist asks him why he’s so depressed he would tell her how much he misses Scooby. I remember a couple of days later after putting Scooby to sleep I started throwing his beds and toys away. Scooby had a bed in every room. My grandson took the bed out of the bag, and a couple of days later I found it on the other side of the bed. I asked him why, and he said, he didn’t want to get rid of it yet. Scooby had a gift, and I always wondered how Scooby knew it was 10pm. Every single night he would leave my room, and would go to my grandson Isaiah’s rm to sleep. At any time when Isaiah would have seizures Scooby would run into my room, jump on my bed barking and turning in circles until I would wake up. Scooby also knew when we would have panic attacks. He was amazing. I kept thanking Scooby for giving and showing us so much love. I kept crying telling him how sorry I was. It’s been 5mos, and I’m looking for another Shih-Tzu, but due to my disability we are on a fixed income. A friend of mine told me her mother had found a nonprofit organization that bought her a dog. I belong to every Shih-Tzu group on Facebook. Scooby was blk and white, and Isaiah wants brown and white. I was looking into a teacup or imperial Shih-Tzu, but they are outrageous!! We’ll stick with regular shih-tzu. My question is do you know of any nonprofit organizations that will help us. I have medical records of proof of our illnesses. I’m not worried about about me, but I Isaiah needs more support.

Sincerely, Teri Barnett
