Terry and Bonnie

This is so important; coming from a guy that loves his dog so much I wish more know how crucial this is. Is that your doggy in the picture?

No, Tom, it is our son's dog, Pigford. He has a great personality and is quite a character. Our dog buddy is about 9# of cuddle. Bonnie

I don't think I've ever heard of this, but what a great idea, I bet it helps save lots of lives in the dog world.

Todd, it was new to me too, but makes lots of sense.  Wish we could take advantage of it for our pooch.  I think she will be a beneficiary some day.  Bonnie

Terry and Bonny, I have never heard of a doggy blood drive but it makes sense.  Our dog would not be a candidate as he is at 45 pounds.

Marchel: We had never heard of one before either. With all the complicated medical procedures they do for dogs today, it is probably going to be more common.
