Help Save Oliver James Blogger Opp!

Hello everyone! This is a Blogger Opp to Help Save Oliver James!
Oliver James, a Golden Retriever puppy, was rescued before he was even born by Laura Kody.
At 8 weeks old Oliver suddenly lost his ability to walk, and Laura began taking him to vets to find a cure. They saw 9 vets and spent thousands of dollars on testing, but no one knew what his condition was or could give them much hope for his survival. Finally, They saw a specialist and he was diagnosed with Hypertrophic Osteo-dystrophy.
Over the past year she has tried every treatment available for him and watched him go through recurirng bouts of joint swelling, lameness, and pain so terrible that he couldnt bear to be touched.
A few months ago he started screaming when she touched his mouth, and at that time the vet diagnosed him with his second condition, Craniomandibular Osteopathy.
Over the next few weeks his jaw went through similar bouts of swelling, pain, infection, and calcification that his legs had felt before. Finally his jaw closed shut permanently. He has been unable to eat, drink, pant, chew, or even lick his lips ever since. Laura bottle feeds him 6-10 times a day to keep his weight up, but despite her many efforts he weighs only a very scary 15.4 pounds. To put that in perspective, his littermates all weigh around 60. His toenails have begun to fall out from malnourishment.
Oliver needs surgery and Laura needs our help to fund it! I am asking that each blogger donate an item $5-10 or more if you are generous.
We will offer a FREE Facebook or Twitter link for each person who donates an item in the giveaway. In the giveaway we will ask our fans to share the word of Oliver's story as a mandatory entry. I plan on doing a 50 EXTRA ENTRIES tab as well for Anyone who donates to Oliver HERE.
We will take sign ups for this Blogger Opp until Sunday, Sept 16th at 9:30 EST time. And the Giveaway will last from Monday Sept 17th at midnight and close Sept. 23rd, Sunday at midnight.
This is my Sweet N Sour Deals donation to start it off. :) 
Squashie-Dipity will be donating a Diamond Candle to one lucky winner. Please, Please, Please Bloggers, spread the word far and wide. They need many more people to participate!
