I began the Ricky Fund after my Devon Rex, Ricky, passed away back in 2001 of feline hypertrophic cardiomypathy (HCM) – the most common heart disease in cats, yet little understood. We’ve raised a lot of money, and better understand the incidence of HCM. Also we now have a genetic test to screen for the gene defect in two breeds (Ragdoll and Maine Coon). And thanks to Dr. Fine, we’ll be $50 closer to understanding more.
You see, the honorable Dr. Fine is a native of Montreal, Canada at that is where the trouble begins. Dr. Fine opened his practice in Claremon, CA in 1987. His practice specializes in treating children with ADHD, learning disabilities, developmental disorders and parent child relations, and he is one of the most renowned experts in his field on the planet at using animals in therapy.
But calling Dr. Fine:
You are confused.
You see, this one-time Montreal Canadian fan, and long-time friend of professional hockey teams as a motivational coach – really believes the Ducks might waddle by the Blackhawks. Of course, he is mistaken. If for some reason that does occur – which I repeat, it can not, then I will donate $50 to the non-profit Pet Partners, which is an excellent organizations that supports the human-animal bond, particularly though support of human-animal interactions such as animal assisted therapy. Otherwise, when the Hawks win, the Winn Foundation’s Ricky Fund gets $50.
Dr. Fine – it’s fine by me, your team is up a creek without a waddle.
