Losing a pet to cancer is one of the hardest things a person has to deal with. It's heartbreaking to watch your best friend fade because of something they didn't deserve. You can see the pain in their eyes and you feel helpless against it. I personally have faced this disease twice and both times my furry children fought a hard battle but eventually their little bodies couldn't take it anymore. So no one else has to face this pain, I've put together this blog to help raise money for canine cancer research.
This way there will always be a furry, friendly face on the other end of the leash!

A - B - C's

Thanks to Melissa (WannabeRunner) for the idea.  She listed out her answers to these questions on her blog and I thought they looked like something fun to do for a post on Wednesday.  These are my answers.  Enjoy!

(A) Age: 42. And still single!

(C) Chore You Hate: Dishes...I don't even like loading the dishwasher.

(D) Dogs? 2 - Summer & Scout!
