Post your Dog's pics on Facebook's "Photos for Anthony"

A friend of a woman whose son has cancer loves dogs, and she created a facebook page to bring the dogs (or photos of them) to cheer him while he's in the hospital battling cancer. What an awesome thing to do.   
   We posted pics of our kids on it, and please post pictures of yours,too!  - Rob and Tom

Here's what the page is about:  

In December 2014, links to a Facebook event page titled "Photo Doggies for Anthony" began to spread via social media. According to the page, 16-year-old Anthony Lyons was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in July 2014 and is receiving treatment at Phoenix Children's Hospital where, during inpatient stays, he is visited twice weekly by therapy dogs.

   Hi all, my friend Kristen Lyons has her son Anthony at Phoenix Childrens hospital. Some days he gets doggy visits and some he does not. They make him smile. I thought if I create this event, you can post a picture of your dog to help make him smile. His mom shows them to him and he smiles.
REMEMBER: THIS IS NOT AN ACTUAL EVENT, ONLY TO POST YOUR PHOTO OF YOUR DOG FOR ANTHONY....AND....PLEASE PLEASE NOTE WHERE YOU ARE FROM. This event has gone viral and Anthony and his mom Kristen are smiling happily. Me too.



Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
