Announcing a New Fundraiser

All of the Items for this Very Special Fundraiser were created and donated by Willem Wijnberg, a very talented artist from The Netherlands.

This Fundraiser is for Grant #336 and the money raised will be matched at a rate of 300% by the Canine Health Foundation CHF and is tax-deductible. That means that for every dollar you donate, the CHF will match it with $3, turning your $1 donation into a $4 donation!

Losing a dog to MH and how you can help with latest research


"Since we wish to find the MH genes as quickly as possible, the laboratories of Dr. Elaine Ostrander in the U.S. and Drs. Catherine André, Francis Galibert and Benoit Hédan of the CNRS / Medical University at Rennes in France have been recently funded by the AKC-CHF to collaborate on this extraordinary project. This offers an exciting opportunity for a group of long term colleagues and friends who have collaborated many times in the past to work together again to pool our resources and talents to expedite the search for the MH gene.

This funding also complements an ongoing project in the laboratory of longtime collaborator Dr. Matthew Breen who seeks to understand the changes in MH tumors that are associated with rapid onset and progression of the disease. Our now three laboratories have a long history of collaboration, and the proposed plan represents the most efficient way to tackle this complex disorder!"
<click here for more information>



The latest news on this research from Dr Matthew Breen
"We have developed a way to get some useful information from the paraffin blocks that are used to establish a diagnosis of MH by the Path lab. It would be a great help if you can spread the word to owners of dogs who have lost their BMDs to MH to see if they can get hold of this biopsy sample (in the paraffin block) and send it to me. This block may be either with the vet or more likely the Path lab that the vet used to obtain a Path report."


Those of you who have lost Berners in the past may still be able to help here.

" I Will Lend To You a Pup "

I will lend to you for awhile, a pup, God said,
For you to love him while he lives and mourn for when he's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you; and should his stay be brief,
You'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life's land, I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take back my pup again?

I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy will be done",
For all the joys this pup will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness each and every day
And for the happiness we've known, we’ll forever grateful stay.
But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.

If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve
In memory of him we loved, do help us while we grieve.
For when our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We'll have yet another pup and love him all his life.
