Hello, dear friends and supporters of Samson & Charlie! We hope this message finds you well during this holiday season. This Christmas has been unlike any other for us, the proud parents of Samson, our beloved 10-year-old Black Russian Terrier the namesake of our brand. We wanted to share with you the extraordinary journey we've been on with our furry family member, as it's a story of resilience, hope, and the incredible strength of the bond we share with our fur babies.
The Unexpected Battle
On 13th December, our world turned upside down when Samson's health suddenly took a severe downturn. Our gentle giant was diagnosed with immune mediated thrombocytopenia (ITP), a rare and life-threatening condition where the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys platelets, essential for blood clotting. Samson's platelet count dropped to a terrifyingly low level of just 7, far below the normal range of 200-500. It was a moment that sent shockwaves through our hearts and left us grappling with fear and uncertainty.
A Christmas Miracle
As the days passed, we watched Samson's condition remain critical, and the festive season felt anything but merry. Yet, it was on Christmas Day that something truly miraculous happened—Samson's platelet levels began to rise, inching their way towards the lower end of the normal range. This was a gift beyond measure, a beacon of hope that renewed our spirits and reminded us of the magic of the holiday season.
The Price of Love
Samson's fight against ITP came at a substantial cost, both emotionally and financially. The expenses for his medical care and treatment exceeded $20,000, but we were determined to do whatever it took to give our cherished family member the best chance at recovery. Love knows no bounds, and our love for Samson.
The Road to Healing
Though Samson has come through the darkest days of his battle with ITP, the journey to recovery is far from over. He remains weak and in need of round-the-clock care, but his strength and resilience are awe-inspiring. We have no doubt that he will soon be walking again, thanks to his indomitable spirit.
A Heartfelt Thanks
In the face of adversity, we want to express our deep gratitude for the overwhelming love and support we've received. During this challenging period, we had to make adjustments to our operations, reducing the frequency of order dispatches to focus on Samson's care. However, we wanted to show our appreciation in a meaningful way.
As a token of our gratitude, we've extended our Christmas sale, offering a generous 30% discount to our loyal customers. This gesture reflects our commitment to you and the love we have for Samson.
Samson's battle against ITP reminds us of the profound connection between humans and our fur babies. It's a testament to the strength of love and the miracles that can unfold during the holiday season. Thank you for being a part of Samson's journey, and we look forward to brighter days ahead with our beloved furry companion.
