|Momma and Puppy Jake, May 1999|
|Jake at Booga's house, one of his favorite places|
Before I came to live with Mommy-Dog and Daddy-Dog (that's what I call my human parents), they had a black lab named Jake. Jake died of cancer when he was only eight years old.
To honor Jake's memory, mom, dad, and I formed Team Garth to participate in the Fetch-A-Cure Mutt Strutt to raise money for Fetch-A-Cure, a Richmond, Virginia-based 501(c)(3) organization that educates humans to raise awareness about canine cancer and its detection, treatment, and prevention.
If you are in or near Richmond, Virginia, please join us in the walk. It's only a mile long. If you would like to join or support our team, check out the Team Garth Fundraising Page.
Many thanks to those who have already made donations to Fetch-A-Cure in support of Team Garth.
