October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
A Pink ribbon is the official color and symbol of the Breast Cancer Awareness Movement. The color Pink is known to be feminine, sums up women’s qualities of being beautiful, good and caring. The pink ribbon symbolizes fear of breast cancer, hope for the future, and goodness of people and businesses who support the Breast Cancer Awareness Movement.
Did you know that dogs can get breast cancer too?
Yes they do, but it is called Mammary Cancer. The good news is that the disease can be treated successfully if caught early. It is common for unspayed female dogs ages 5 -10. A very good reason to spay your dog for best prevention. If you find a lump on your dog, make sure to see your vet immediately as mammary tumors in dogs often grow quickly.
In support of breast cancer month, mom painted my tail pink with PetPaint, a waterproof paint. Unlike a permanent dye, PetPaint can be washed off immediately with water and pet shampoo. Using PetPaint can be a PAWsome alternative for pet clothing/costumes.
Pink is the color of the fighters, survivors, supporters and the angels.
