10/5/2012 - Thank you Cletus

10/5/12 -  I am so sorry Cletus that you have to fight this horrible condition but you are not alone, I am right here with you and always will be.  Thank you Cletus for being so sweet.  Thank you Cletus for fighting as hard as you do.  Thank you Cletus for being my best friend.  Most of all Cletus, thank you for your unconditional love.

The $1,000 a month hurts but not having Cletus here with me would hurt so much more.

If you can, please donate to Cletus' campaign

I really can't believe I am writing this... today marks 10 weeks since Cletus' last seizure!!! We have been to hell and back several times and I am sure that we will have many more hurdles to go over but right now, at this moment in time, Cletus is HAPPY and HEALTHY and I truly could not ask for more than that.

As far as Cletus' doctors are aware of, Cletus has the only known reported case of open lipped schizencephaly in a canine. The key word here is reported. Most vets are not aware that schizencephaly exists or they are not aware that this condition is possible in an animal. Cletus is living proof of this possibility.

According to the Humane Society of the United States, there are 78.2 million dogs in the U.S. ( Some sites state that schizencephaly affect 1.54 per 100,000 people. According to, schizencephaly affects 1 in 2719 people or 0.04% of the population ( The fact is that no one is sure how many people schizencephaly truly affects. If we assume these same statistics in dogs, it equates to up to 31,280 dogs out there with schizencephaly in the U.S. alone.

Please help me to get the word out about Cletus and schizencephaly. Contact your local news organization about Cletus or have your local news organization contact me directly at

Thank you for your support,

Doug & Cletus
