    Default Your vote will help fund SM studies!!!

    SM research needs funding and is the only way to conquer SM in our beloved breed. Others will benefit from this research as well. I have seen first hand how much suffering this disease causes - many of you remember little Charlie, our rescue cavalier who had severe SM, and many generously donated to help with his surgery and care. In memory of Charlie, Colin and I have been considering ways to raise funds for the research, and this is the first of several ideas. I will create separate posts for the other fund raisers. This one is FREE - your votes could make a difference!!!!

    I recently discovered that Bissell has a pet photo contest in which Bissell will make a $10,000 donation to the pet cause of the grand prize winner's choice. I submitted a photo of India - if she gets enough votes to win the grand prize, the donation will go to Grant No 954: Identification of Genes Causing Chiari I Malformation with Syringomelia in the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, which is sponsored by the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Charitable Trust

    If India wins the weekly prize, a Bissell Pet Hair Eraser vacuum cleaner, I will sell it (either by taking bids or on Craig's List) and donate the proceeds to Grant No. 954.

    Here is the Contest site - to vote click on India's photo (on the top left), then provide your name and email address.

    Here is more information about the contest:
    http://www.bissell.com/MVP_Pet_Photo_Contest.aspx

    We chose a photo of India for the contest, because she had formed a special relationship with Charlie, always looking after him and wanting to be near him.

    Please feel free to cross post. Voting is from April 15 through April 22.

    Thanks for your votes! I really hope we get that $10,000 for SM research!

    Here is a photo of India with Charlie doing his little crab-walk (this was due to his spinal nerves being compressed so severely from SM.)
