A Friend Of The Morning Waking Crew Needs Your Help

He didn’t know we were doing this, but we figured what better way to support “Bark Week” than helping a doggie that just had surgery. Many of you know Tom Dixon from his years performing around New England.  Tom packed up and headed to Nashville a little over a year ago and is working on making his dreams come true.  Tom has helped out WOKQ on several occasions so it’s our turn now to return the favor. Tom and his wife, Jen ran into a horrible situation over the weekend with their dog, ‘Gibson.’
The poor little guy had to have emergency surgery after his gallbladder ruptured.  There was never any question for Tom and Jen, they told the vet to do whatever had to be done. However, as dog owners know, surgery is not cheap.  If you can help by donating any amount, it would be greatly appreciated.  If you can’t donate, please send happy thoughts and prayers for a quick recovery, that would be greatly appreciated as well.


Partly sunny with a chance of a shower or thunderstorm and a high of 82. Clouds with some sun in the North Country, chance of passing showers or thunderstorms, high 80.
