My brother’s beautiful husky died last Monday, September 1st, and not all of you may know the story of Kholton’s death. I share it now only as context for why I am asking for your help.
On Sunday, August 31st, my family was out in their backyard doing yard work with their dogs playing outside in the yard. After a while, Kholton came back from a run down by the river with a gunshot wound in his side. Since they were using chainsaws to trim trees, they never heard a sound. They spent the next 24 hours in the animal emergency room fighting for the dogs life. Sadly, the trauma ended up being too much for him and his heart gave out…leaving my brother, Dominic, with an unbearable loss and a $3,000 vet bill.
Kholton was a kind dog and loyal friend to everyone that was fortunate enough to meet him. He was a blessing to our family for four amazing years that we will never forget, and taught us so much about life and love.
In order to help him work on recovering from this tragedy emotionally, I and my family want to make sure he does not have to worry about the crippling financial burden it has also put him in.
If you could find it in your hearts to pitch in what you can to help alleviate the strain this has brought upon our family and to help a grieving pet-owner in need, my family would be forever grateful.
Thank you so much for your help and we love you all.
The second night hike of 2014!. Experience Menomonee Valley after hours with this 6 mile hike to the lakefront. Imagine a simpler time when the valley was nothing but wetlands and marsh and witness the developing area that it is today.
Meetup will be in front of the Blast Fitness in West Allis. We will take the HankAaron trail east and make our way down Canal St, through Marquette University until we reach the Lakefront.
This is a one way hike so return trips should be planned in advance. Milwaukee Transit System’s Blue Line will take you back to the starting point via National Avenue.
Flashlights are recommended as certain parts of the hike will not have any light.
Parking is recommended north of the Hank Aaron trail within the Milwaukee city limits as Milwaukee does not enforce night parking on Sunday mornings but West Allis does.
Meetup address is Blast Fitness 901 S 60th St West Allis, WI and will be at 2:30 am.
