New charity helps dogs with cancer
“Eileen’s Pike’s Golden Retrievers Skyler and Kiana were literally family. If you don’t believe it look around her house. The walls are covered with their pictures. ‘They were our babies,’ Pike said. ‘They were in our wedding. We took them everywhere we could.’ Pike says her world fell apart earlier this year when not one but both of her dogs, although from completely different liters were diagnosed with forms of canine cancer. Pike was even more heartbroken when she learned one third of dogs suffer from the disease and golden retrievers and boxers are for some reason most at risk.
That’s when she decided to start a chapter of the National Canine Cancer Foundation.”
