Good Dogs...Good Cause!

Our friends from the UPMC Passavant Cancer Center invited us to join their team, the Passavant Teal Titans, in the Walk to Break the Silence on Ovarian Cancer this morning in North Park.

Here's Indy and Jazz in front of a teal balloon ribbon, the symbol for those battling ovarian cancer.

Before and after the walk, Jazz and Indy dispensed a good bit of pet therapy to those in attendance, from children to college students to ovarian cancer survivors.

Almost there!

At the finish line with Blaze and Sammie.

The National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's Pittsburgh Chapter organized a great event, and they even had a "Canine Corner" with goodies for the dogs and information on the benefits of pet-assisted therapy.  The dogs got toys and treats, and they provided water and a cool-down pool for the dogs after the walk.

Jazz and Indy and I enjoyed the walk this morning with Aunt Mariann, Uncle Jim, Sammie, Blaze, and our friends from the UPMC Passavant Cancer Center, Judy and her Boxer, Rock.  We were proud to be a part of the Passavant Teal Titans and to help raise some funds for this great cause!
