White Dog is five years old today! Born a simple farm girl in Kansas, White Dog has traveled more than a dozen states, visited Mexico and Canada, and has two- and four-legged friends all across the world. She loves a diversity of cuisines and has developed a respectful appreciation of the cultures and customs that populate this planet. She has grown into a compassionate, caring adult who wants to make the world a better place...and who knows with determined perserverance that she will. We are proud of White Dog and all that she is and on this very very special day wish her long life filled with adventure, accomplishment, peace, and joie de vie. She knows already that she could not be more loved. Happy Birthday, Siku Marie, White Dog!

As per White Dog's wish, we will donate fifty cents toward Canine Cancer Research and Awareness for every comment left on this blog today. In memory of her friend, Hana.

My wonderful friend Khyra sent me over! We think what you are doing is a wonderful thing! My friend Kelsey, a Siberian Husky, was diagnosed with a nerve sheath tumor this summer, and had to have his entire fluffy tail removed! Luckily, the vets at Colorado State University were able to remove the entire tumor, and he is cancer free. We continue to hope that through continued research and medical advances, that even more pups, and kitties, can survive this horrible disease.

Happy Birthday!

Dakota was a cancer victim as well although it wasn't what took her life in the end. We also had at least two other dogs who had cancer of some form. Our parents have both experienced the horror of cancer in several family members as well. We are wholeheartedly in support of all research to find a cure for this evil.

Happy Birthday, sweet Siku - you are a wonderful girl and we are proud to know you.

Happy Birthday Siku!! Heard about your generosity through our person's facebook account (dogbook is so much cooler...but whatever) and thought it was such an awesome cause. It's so sad when furkids get cancer, so we want to do whatever we can to help.

Happy, happy 5th Birthday, Siku Marie!

My father died of cancer when I was only 8 years old. It makes me sad when this dreadful disease strikes innocent pet animals because the decision for treatment rests solely on their human caretakers.

What a meaningful way to celebrate your birthday, I am proud of you Siku!
