Fuel The Cure - With Oz and Zukes

We are joining in Oz's "Fuel the Cure" blog hop which is helping raise money and awareness of pet cancers in conjunction with Zukes pet treats who donate a portion of all their sales to research in this area.

Now PLEASE do join in as Zukes is donating $5.00 for every blog hop entry PLUS you have a chance to win to win some yummy Zukes too - what could be better. The Contest and Fundraiser Blog Hop will be open from Tuesday, June 24 through Saturday, June 28 - so you have NO excuses not to join in as the contest is open to USA, Canada and the UK !!!!!  But anyone anywhere can still join the blog hop in support of pet cancer!

Now we must admit we have been EXTREMELY lucky for over a life time of having pets, dogs, cats, birds, fish etc -  we have only ever had one dog with cancer. He was a beautiful doberman/greyhound mix by name of Tinto that developed bone cancer of the leg. Even though they thought they were able to catch it in time - he did eventually develop a brain cancer too and passed away at the age of 4. Sadly some 30 years ago when this happened there was little if no real treatment for pet cancers.

What these things do more than anything...... is remind us to live life in the moment and enjoy every second for all it is worth as all to easily it can be snatched away from us in a blink.  Now Oz wanted us to include some photos of us enjoying life and we couldn't think of anything better then seeing Mr Dweeb Denny playing with his favorite tennis ball and ME just smiling  because OCCASIONALLY I like too :)


  1. OMD! Love your photos, guys! Thank you so much for joining in the contest and fundraiser. Your family has been quite lucky to own dogs for so long and only lose one to the Big C. But at age 4?!? That is way to young for a pup to become an angel in heaven. I a so sorry for that.

  2. We are so behind with blogging but wanted to say we are SO pawleazed you are home, we really hope they can sort this out for you. Hope it wasn't the rock BOL. :) We will be back to normal next..WoooHooooo. Love and BIG hugs xxxxxxxxxxx

  3. I'm so glad you joined the hop too. It's sad that Tinto was there only for four years. And it's sad that this big C is still strong and destroys lifes. But I'm sure once we will have a cure and then the big c will spread fear and terror no longer.

  4. Is there really anything more happy than running in the sunshine with a ball? Well, rolling in mud, but that is apparently frowned upon, so we'll stick with the ball and sunshine. :)

  5. That sure is a wonderful thing for Zukes to do! Oh, and about that lovely tennis ball. It sure looks fun!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  6. LOVE that grouping of pictures you have up there.

  7. You two are definitely enjoying the moments!!! Great "happy boy" photos!!

  8. Zukes makes my dogs happy! Especially the salmon minis :)

    Love seeing happy Denny & Reilly.

  9. We hope they get lots of money. That Cancer has to be stopped. Our Daisy is the ONLY one of our dogs to get it. Mostly, we've been lucky, too.

    You boys look very happy and beautifully groomed as usual.

    XXXOOO Bella Roxy & Dui

  12. Hi Guys!!! this is a great hop for sure. Mom has been lucky too, pug owner more than 20 years and none with cancer. (knock on wood).
    But since we started blogging we have been saddened by the loss of friends to the evil C.

  17. What great photos of two obviously very happy dogs! You are so right, we have to make the most of every moment, because we just don't know....
    4 years old was far too young for your Tinto, so it's a good thing we are all doing what we can to help the cause.
