I'm not one to make a plea to all my friends and blog readers, but this is very special to me. Many of you know that my wife and I lost our dog Rudy to cancer last spring. As a tribute, we entered him for consideration in the 2011 Cancer Can't Keep a Good Dog Down Calendar. It is a fundraiser to fight cancer in canines. We are asking for help to raise money for a cure but also to win Rudy a place in the calendar. Voting takes place through September 12, and each dollar donated counts as a vote. We would appreciate any help, even if it's just the five dollar minimum donation. It's a good cause, and a great way to honor our special boy. Just click the Donate Now! button on the widget above if you would like to lend your support, and please share this with everyone you know. Cancer is not just a human disease.
