RALEIGH, NC (3/14/18) – The AKC Canine Health Foundation (AKC CHF) and the V Foundation for Cancer Research announce a collaboration to fund cancer research for dogs that may also benefit people.

In an area of research known as “Comparative Oncology”, the two national organizations find they speak the same language. Comparative Oncology is the discipline that integrates naturally occurring cancers in dogs into broader studies of cancer biology and therapy. Since dogs and people get many of the same cancers, the AKC CHF and the V Foundation have teamed up to fund research in this field to benefit both species.

One of the cancers that occurs in both dogs and people is bladder cancer. Bladder cancer affects approximately 40,000 dogs and 79,000 people a year. The first project the AKC CHF and the V Foundation is jointly funding will test a new, targeted immunotherapy against a specific gene mutation that occurs in bladder cancer. Nicola Mason, BVetMed, PhD, a veterinary researcher at the University of Pennsylvania will lead the research team in this clinical trial entitled, “Immune Targeting of the V600E B-Raf Neoantigen in Canine Urothelial Carcinoma”.

“The V Foundation is excited about this partnership with the AKC CHF. Our funding of research in Comparative Oncology represents our belief that this work benefits humans and dogs alike. We are honored to co-fund this grant in memory of David Kane,” said Susan Braun, CEO of the V Foundation.

According to Dr. Diane Brown, CEO of the AKC CHF, “As veterinarians, we are trained to understand disease processes across species and have a clear understanding of the field of Comparative Oncology and comparative medicine. What is important now is to see human medicine working closely with veterinary medicine to benefit all species, and in this case, dogs and humans. We are thrilled to work with the V Foundation to lead in this area of research for a new cancer vaccine. Together we are stronger, and joining forces for bladder cancer research just makes sense.”

How Canine Hip Dysplasia May Unlock the Mysteries of Human DDH

Modern medicine is increasingly turning to pets for answers, and when it comes to understanding the poor development of hips prone to dislocation, dogs may play an important part to gaining further insight. A December 2017 study in the Journal of Orthopaedic Research positioned canine hip dysplasia (CHD) as a model to help scientists better understand developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in humans. Here's what you need to know:

What Is Canine Hip Dysplasia (CHD)?

Canine hip dysplasia, or CHD, is a condition where a dog's hips are improperly developed. It causes the hip to get loose and deteriorate as your dog ages. It's a hereditary condition that's common in large breed dogs, too. Dog breeds that are prone to this condition include German Shepherds, Labrador retrievers, Great Danes, Irish Setters, and St. Bernards. However, small and medium-sized dogs can experience CHD, too. External factors, such as the weight of your dog, his diet, and excessive growth, impact CHD.

How CHD Is Treated

There are a number of treatments that can help manage pain and other ailments that come along with canine hip dysplasia. For example, your pet can receive physical therapy and surgery to correct CHD. You can also use discount pet medication, including the Carprofen Caplets, offered via reputable online pet pharmacies and medication suppliers, such as Allivet.

What Is Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) in Humans and How Is It Treated?

Developmental dysplasia of the hip in humans is a condition that is most commonly identified during birth and can also develop during the first year of a person's life. It involves an improperly developed hip joint, which can lead to a dislocated, dislocatable, or loose hip. It's also linked to pain in the hip and secondary osteoarthritis or OA. It also can limit your movements.

This condition can be treated non-surgically by repositioning the thigh bone with a special harness. However, surgery is often necessary the older a DDH patient gets or if the repositioning of the thighbone is unsuccessful. While surgery has certainly improved the results of the condition over the last 10 years, scientists still lack a full understanding of the causes and effects of the condition, the diseases common behaviors, and how changes in cells' and tissues' mechanical properties and physical forces play a role in the development of DDH.

How CHD and DDH Link

Scientists believe that by studying CHD, they can find an answer to not only the specific paths of that start the degeneration of hip joints of those with DDH but also plausible alternative treatments. Links between CHD and DDH provide insight. Here are some commonalities between both diseases:

  • Both are hereditary and Pre-OA. Just as CHD is hereditary, DDH also is likely to run in families. Also, if CHD is not treated, it can progress into OA, similar to how untreated DDH can progress into secondary OA.
  • CHD and DDH approaches to treatment share similarities. The approach to treating CHD and DDH is similar. Both humans and dogs can modify their diet and movement to better manage the condition. Surgery is also an option for both dogs and humans.
  • Weight plays an important role. Treating DDH by managing weight is similar to the treatment of CHD. That's because extra weight adds extra pressure on the joint in the case of both dogs and people. Losing weight can help reduce this pressure and the discomfort that comes along with it.

Turning to Your Pet for Answers

Looking to your family history for answers to current conditions and diseases may not be the only option to unlocking life's mysteries of modern science. Modern science is turning to your pet. Using CHD as a model and understanding CHD it may uncover valuable insight that leads to better treatment options in DDH.

PIONEER IN HOLLYWOOD PET-SITTING INDUSTRY RELEASES TALES OF CELEBRITY FUR KID LOVE

 

Funny and Full of Business Savvy Advice,
The Pet Sitter’s Tale is Currently Available on Amazon

 

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

Los Angeles(November 20, 2017) – Laura Vorreyer releases her book, “The Pet Sitter’s Tale,” (AuthorHouse) which was fifteen years in the making. Now available on Amazon, AuthorHouse.com and through Barnes & Noble’s website, this collection of short stories was gathered throughout Laura’s years with the company she built herself, Your Dog’s Best Friend. The book is filled with laugh-out-loud anecdotes and practical business advice.

With an impossibly determined and dogged will, Laura moved from Chicago to Los Angeles to become a make-up artist in the film and television industry. Knowing nobody in the city and with no road map to success, she stumbled upon her true passion of pet-sitting in the most hilarious and Hollywood-style manner.

“The Pet Sitter’s Tale” paints a vivid picture of what it’s like to witness, and be a willing participant of, the pampered life of a celebrity’s dog. Laura is always compassionate and understanding of the eccentricities of pet-parents as she tells her tales of overly-protective, dog-obsessed clients. She also adds helpful business advice as she recounts stories about the tough task of hiring good people in wacky Hollywood.

Each chapter in “The Pet Sitter’s Tale” begins with an introductory photo of an actual canine client, in order to highlight just exactly why they inspire such loyalty.

About her road to her career, Laura explains, “I have been many other things, but none as satisfying or rewarding as a caretaker for other living creatures.” Anybody who has loved a four-legged furry family member can relate and will laugh and cry along with Laura’s compilation of stories of her fifteen years in business.

About “The Pet Sitter’s Tale”

From the time she was a young girl growing up in Chicago to unintentionally becoming a professional pet sitter in Los Angeles, “The Pet Sitter’s Tale” is Laura Vorreyer’s collection of stories about her love affair with pets. Each story is infused with her unique sense of humor and observations about the foibles and adventures of furry children and their human counterparts.

Filling multiple roles as animal expert, companion, therapist, and friend, Laura muses over her client’s pet obsessions while always lending a compassionate ear. Both poignant and humorous, “The Pet Sitter’s Tale” will amuse anyone who’s ever had their heartstrings tugged by a cute pet.

David Frei to be Inducted into the DWAA Hall of Fame

Iconic dog show host and award-winning author receives highest honor

(New York, NY – December 6, 2017) – The Dog Writers Association of America (DWAA) has selected David Frei as the 2017 Hall of Fame Inductee for outstanding contributions to the field. He will accept the award on February 10, 2018 at the DWAA Awards Banquet at the Hotel New Yorker in Manhattan.

“I am truly humbled by this honor given to me by my peers and colleagues and friends,” Frei said. “To be a part of this collection of great and talented people who are already inductees is truly special. I know that I share with them the great fortune of having wonderful dogs making my life better every single day. I thank the Dog Writers Association of America for including me.”

Being inducted into the DWAA Hall of Fame is the latest of Frei’s many career accomplishments. New York Magazine once called David Frei "probably the most famous human in the world of canines.”

As the co-host of NBC’s National Dog Show Presented by Purina since its inception in 2002, David is seen every Thanksgiving Day by the largest TV audience for any dog show – more than 25 million viewers in 2017. It is the same role that he perfected in 27 years as the longtime (1990-2016) co-host of USA Network’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. He has now added to his duties with NBC/USA as co-host of the Beverly Hills Dog Show, which debuted on Easter in 2017.

Being America’s “dog guy” has brought him many appearances on network television, including "Today," “NBC Nightly News,” "Good Morning America," "Fox & Friends," "The View”, Martha Stewart," and more. The dogs have taken him to the White House for a visit with the President, for a ride on a float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, to ring the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange, to throw out the first pitch at two Major League Baseball games, to a role on HBO’s “Sex And The City” and even to an appearance as a pastry judge on the Food Network’s “Best In Show” competition.

A breeder-owner-handler and judge in the world of purebred dogs for more than 40 years, he has enjoyed much competitive success with his Afghan Hounds, Brittanys and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. His dog, Ch. Stormhill’s Who’s Zoomin’ Who, was the top Afghan Hound in the country in 1989 and retired as the top-winning female in the history of the breed. As a judge, he has officiated at shows in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Denmark and China. 

But David’s true passion comes from the work that his dogs have been doing as therapy dogs at places such as the Ronald McDonald House and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York (where his Brittanys, Teigh and Belle, were the first therapy dogs ever allowed into these facilities), and at New York’s VA Medical Center. After Teigh and Belle passed, David’s Cavalier, Angel, and his Brittany, Grace, took over for them at many New York facilities.

While at Westminster, he created a charitable activity, Angel On A Leash, to support a therapy dog program at New York-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital. Angel On A Leash later became an independent charity with him as founder and president, creating and advocating for therapy dog programs many places, expanding nationwide and receiving many honors for its wonderful accomplishments.

David’s second book, Angel On A Leash (named after the charity), is his view of his world of therapy dogs and his life in dogs, and was the 2012 winner of a Dog Writers Association of America’s Maxwell Award as best depiction of the human-animal bond. David was also the co-author, with Mike Lingenfelter, of The Angel By My Side in 2002. Also a DWAA Maxwell winner, it tells the story of Dakota, Mike’s heroic Golden Retriever service dog. David’s third book, about his years at Westminster, is underway.

He also served as director of communications for Westminster from 2003 to 2015, during which time he was recognized with awards from the DWAA (its AKC Distinguished Service Award), the World Dog Press Association, the Association of Purebred Dog Writers (the Stonehenge Award), and Purina (Better with Pets Award).   

Petside.com named him as the Pet Person of the Year in 2011, and in 2015, Dog Fancy magazine, in its final issue, included him in a retrospective, “45 People Who Changed the Dog World.”

He has been honored for his work with Angel On A Leash by the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club, the ASPCA, the Pet Philanthropy Circle and a number of other organizations. He is a past board member for Take The Lead and Morris Animal Foundation, and a past member of the St. Jude Children’s Hospital Sports Council. He has also been recognized for his volunteer efforts with Transfiguration Church and School in New York’s Chinatown for many years.

A native of Eugene, Oregon, David lived in Seattle for 20 years where he owned two popular sports bar restaurants and his own PR agency. He then moved to New York City in 2002, working fulltime for the Westminster Kennel Club before moving to Cannon Beach, Oregon, in 2016, and now works as a consultant for NBC Sports. Previously, he held public relations positions with the Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers and ABC-TV Sports in New York. 

“David Frei is such an inspiration to the dog-writing community,” said Jen Reeder, DWAA’s president. “He is beloved not just by writers, but by dog lovers across the country and world. We’re thrilled to recognize him with our organization’s highest honor, which he so richly deserves.”

Join LBWF As We Celebrate Our Founder & President
Linda Blair's Birthday!
Happy Birthday Linda
Linda
Make A Tax Deductible Donation To Our Fundraiser
 In Linda's Honor
Linda has made a huge difference in the lives of many and the LBWF team has started this fundraiser in honor of her birthday to celebrate a remarkable woman who has touched the lives of so many. Linda's birthday wish has been the same, to continue rescuing abandoned animals from the desert, home foreclosures, shelters and sadly emergency victims from natural disasters. Please help us give back to her and make her birthday wish come true.
Many have heard the stories of what inspired Linda to start rescuing and we know many may still wonder what is Linda Blair really like and what a day in the life of Linda Blair is like. As one of her volunteers I have been both privileged and honored to work with her side by side.  I will never forget the day I first stepped foot on the property of the LBWF Wellness Center. My mouth dropped open as I looked around. Linda calls it "design on a dime" but in reality it was designed with love. It is absolutely beautiful. You can't help but smile as you look around and see all these dogs celebrating their newfound freedom knowing they are safe in the hands of an angel.  There are a variety of dogs large and small, young to old at LBWF and they all have one thing in common; they are all really great dogs who receive an abundance of love. They are all very happy and quite entertaining. There are a lot of "zoomies" going on at LBWF. I was fortunate to also have met a few of the Katrina dogs that Linda personally rescued from Louisiana.
 When Linda says she works 24/7, 365 days a year she is not lying. I am a witness to this. Linda has no holidays, sick days, vacation days, or weekends. Even on her birthday I can guarantee she will put in a full day's work and then some. So for those that would like to know what Linda Blair is really like, the first thought that comes to mind is she is like the Energizer Bunny, she keeps going and going. She is compassionate, and determined. She has a heart of gold and she truly does want to make the world a better place for both people and animals. She is funny and highly intelligent. But what is truly amazing is to see the bond Linda has with the dogs. The love she has for them shines through her and that is when you know you are in the presence of an Angel on Earth. On her computer you will see thousands of pictures of all the dogs Linda has rescued throughout the years. She remembers every single dog's story and nothing warms her heart more than receiving updates on her dogs that were adopted. So if any of our adopters are reading this, please remember to keep in touch and update us with stories and pictures!  Linda has a special gift when it comes to animals and there is no doubt rescuing is Linda's calling.
Linda does not live an easy life. Within 10 minutes of her waking up her work day begins. Linda is actively involved in the day to day routine of caring for the dogs. That is usually enough work for one, but not for Linda. Along with caring for the dogs she also looks over each application that comes in for one of the dogs. She personally makes the phone calls and spends a great deal of time getting to know a potential adopter. She is an incredible matchmaker and her main priority is finding the perfect dog for the adopter and the perfect home for the dog. On the days when potential adopters come to meet the dogs, Linda meets with them, showing them a variety of dogs. When the perfect match is found, Linda then does the paper work and puts together the adoption packet. There are home checks that are done, dogs being delivered to their forever homes, shopping for supplies, dog food, and anything else needed for the dogs, phone calls to be made or returned, veterinarian appointments, freedom pictures and videos to be taken, dog postings to be done. This is a daily routine for Linda. Late at night, when she finally gets to sit down it isn't to watch TV or rest. This is the time she finally gets on the computer. Her email inbox is overwhelming to see. This is the sad part of rescue. The hundreds of emails from shelter networkers begging for help. These emails include videos and pictures of innocent animals whose lives are on the line through no fault of their own. It is heartbreaking to see. When Linda is not reading emails she is writing her posts for social media, and researching. Linda is very passionate about education, especially when it comes to cancer. Her passion is to teach others the information she has learned by working with the best nutrionalists. Linda's "Stamp Out Cancer" program works. I have seen the results. Linda has spoken many times about one of her founding dogs, Riley and through her research and program she was given the gift of more time with him. Riley was my buddy and I never would have known he had cancer if Linda didn't tell me. He would happily trot around in his yard, roll in the sunshine and he LOVED his pool. He enjoyed going for walks and he could out run me which I think he got a kick out of taking off running when we would go for walks together. He was very smart and curious. Many times I would be working on my laptop and Riley would watch, always sticking his head close to the computer to see what I was doing. I know without Linda's program I never would have met him.
 Linda is also very passionate about mandatory spaying/neutering, stopping puppy mills and shutting down backyard breeders. She attends meetings and speaks out publicly informing and educating along the way. She has fought against Breed Specific legislation, and her goal is to help change the laws regarding animal welfare.  Many weekends are spent traveling to different conventions around the world giving fans the opportunity to meet her, and she also uses it as an opportunity to educate nationwide. She truly cares about all animals in America and around the world. That is why she is always pushing "Emergency Preparedness" to inform people how to care and save animals from the high temperatures in the summer, storms, hurricanes and freezing temperatures in the winter. She wants to make sure this information is available to everyone.
2017 was not an easy year for anyone including Linda. Several emergency rescues were taken on by LBWF because of the fires. We also had several medical cases. Our emergency funds were depleted. Many of you have seen our Facebook posts showing the rescues. That is why we are holding this fundraiser. We want to give back to Linda. She works so hard and times have been rough. We have seen the stress, the worry and the discouragement in Linda's eyes but she fights through it and continues working and rescuing. She does this because she made a promise and she will never break a promise.  She is a force to reckon with.
Linda is truly an amazing woman. She is a mentor, and an inspiration. She is one of the strongest people I have ever met. She truly cares about people and animals. She is a true hero and I am honored to call her my friend. Linda has spent her entire life giving back to others. She has entertained the world for many years through her movies, traveled around the world meeting fans, she has given to numerous charities, and she has rescued dogs from so many shelters. Let us join together and give back to Linda for her birthday. No amount is too small, whether it is giving up one day's worth of coffee, or donating the price of a movie ticket. Any amount will help. Let's make this one of Linda's happiest birthdays ever by helping her to help the voiceless! She deserves it. To make a donation to Linda's birthday fundraiser please click the Donate button below.
