Did you know that cancer kills one in every four dogs over the age of 2? If you’ve never had to live through watching your beloved animal being eaten up from the inside, let me assure you, you don’t want to. We finally had to put our fox hound (pictured above) down several years ago after the chemo failed.
Anyways, Fox 42 in Omaha recently aired a segment about this very topic. Click here, then do a site search (at the top right) for canine cancer. The video clip should be the first thing on the list that returns. The second thing is a link to the Morris Animal Foundation, which is trying to raise $30 million to find a cure for cancer.
Sorry to end the week on a down note.
Good day, and good dog.

Warren – I’m so sorry for your loss. Thanks for sharing your story.
I just lost my best friend a 6 yr old Parson Russell Terrier to cancer. What a horrible thing to deal with.
They say that more dogs used to die of old age. I am really wondering if the dog food industry has contributed to the rise of cancer, by producing low grade foods. People need to start feeding their dogs fresh food, instead of grocery store bought kibble.
