Did you guys read the update on Tink and Pink this week? After reading Johanna’s update on Tink the Dachshund and Pink the pig I got to thinking about poor little Tink and her medical problems. I was hoping that she was going to be okay and that her tumor would not be cancerous.
It’s funny how sometimes when you hear news, good or bad, you often times hear more related stories. In this case as I was thinking about Tink’s health a friend of mine emailed me this upcoming dog event:

Pet Cancer Awareness Walk For Linus, Stetson, Or Derby
This is one of those events that any of my dogs can participate in. The question is which one should I bring. By this time Derby will be over 6 months old and should be able to handle a situation like this. However, Stetson is probably the most prepared to be in an environment with many dogs some well trained and probably some that are not so well trained. Finally, there’s Linus who would definitely not enjoy being in the company of so many strange dogs. Linus would probably be best suited to watch the other dogs walking and be allowed to choose how far or close he’d like to be to the action.
Regardless of who I decide to take this is definitely an event I’d like to participate in. How about you? Are you interested in joining us on supporting the Animal Cancer Foundation?
