Woofs, Sugar here.
Last week on May 5th, Day 2 of my Golden Woofs road trip to BlogPaws / Day 1 of my Colorado Adventure, Golden Delight to visit Morris Animal Foundation.
We shared with you on a previous post that on June 22nd Morris Animal is hosting a virtual pet cancer walk. We joined and hope you do too. Dog lover Jonathan Goldsmith, The Most Interesting Man in The World, joined in too. He is also helping Morris Animal to recruit Jimmy Fallon. Did you know Jimmy has a golden retriever name Gary? Gary is Golden Cute.
Cancer is the cause of death in about 1/3 of all dogs, and 2/3 in some breeds. Sadly, Golden Retriever is one of a number of purebreeds that suffer a higher than expected incidence of cancer. Based on study, approximately 60% of all Goldens will die from cancer, 57% of females and 66% of males.
We invite you to visit FightPetCancer.org and Join Unite To Fight Pet Cancer Virtual Walk.
Watch the video below. Share and help by posting or tweeting it.
Help recruit Jimmy Fallon by using the hashtag #AskFallon.
Help pets enjoy longer healthier lives.
Lots of Golden L♥VE n Woofs

Peggy Frezon says
Hi Sugar! The Morris animal Foundation studies are so important, especially for goldens. We need to figure out why they have such a high risk for cancer and how we can help. My son fell in love with our goldens, and he’s getting a golden puppy in 3 weeks!!

What a great cause
Two of the woofies that have been in our family went to the Bridge too early because of cancer. We think this is a great cause and hope Jimmy signs up to bring more awareness to it too!
PeeS: Our mommy talks all the time about seeing you at BlogPaws! She adores you Sugar!
Jackie Bouchard says
