Thanks for the info about the Canine K event - great cause and looks like a wonderful program. I learned about Dr. Kay when I heard her Marth 19th on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross -

Terry has an excerpt from Dr. Kay's book and the interview is well worth listening to - what a wonderful, compassionate veterinarian - our dogs are lucky.

I hope we can raise lots of money for cancer research on Saturday. It sounds like a woofing good time.
