“Each of our journeys with canine cancer are different, but together, we can help find a cure.”  bonnie benson

Bonnie’s story about losing her beloved dog, Checkers, probably hits home for anyone that has had a dog succumb to cancer.  They do get our diseases, don’t they?  Bonnie did not sit back; unlike most of us, she sprung into action.  After going through that painful experience, a non-profit corporation was formed.

Paws for the Cause,  Please visit this website to see what it is all about.

This charitable foundation has partnered with the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine’s Chase Away Canine Cancer Program

I have written about my dog, Addy, in the past.  She is a “rescued” dog and I have been thrilled to have given her a “forever” home.  But, years ago I had a Springer Spaniel named Koko and I loved her to death.  She developed diabetes and I went through the stages of helping her get through this devastating disease that also affects canines.  I know what Bonnie went through and I hope you help her raise funds for Paws for the Cause and the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine’s Chase Away Canine Cancer Program.

On her behalf, I thank you.

Talk to you later…..have a great week-end….
