Ovarian Cancer Awareness and Dogs; Fresh Wave Zaps Cat Odor
Ovarian Cancer Symptom Awareness does amazing work, to inform women about the symptoms of this awful disease. Listen HERE on my WGN Radio show, Steve Dale’s Pet World, as I speak with Dr. Kristin Junkas before the non-profit’s annual dog walk and fun run to raise dollars for research.
Dogs actually are being trained to identify Ovarian Cancer before medical science can. It turns out that it’s an easy task for dogs. Now, not so easy, is to create medical equipment to replicate what the dogs are doing. With this type of cancer, an early diagnosis can be the difference between life and death.
I answer a cat litter box odor question – thank goodness for Fresh Wave.
I also mention that a driver in Mexico – where we recently were, was attempting to ask me about Donald Trump. I do understand a bit of Spanish, but I just couldn’t understand what he was asking, which turned out to be, “What if Trump becomes President?” You’ll hear what I said.
September 18 is Puppy Mill Awareness Day. At noon I will lead a march down Michigan Avenue, from the Wrigley Building Plaza of the Americas (448 N. Michigan Avenue) and head north to about Oak Street, and then turn around and head back. It’s not a long walk, but it’s a walk in a high profile place to raise awareness, as sadly puppy mills still exists. People and their well-socialized dogs are welcome! Of course, there is no charge to attend – but the hope is that people will fill out this form, so the Puppy Mill Project organizers can let the city know how many people are expected.
A PAWS for a Sweet Cause is a family-friendly and candy-friendly event at Dylan’s Candy Bar, 445 N. Michigan Ave., also September 18, from noon to 4 p.m., to benefit PAWS Chicago. This is an adoption event, so who knows, you may find a new best friend for life.
