We made it! Jake is 8 years old today. So, what to give the dog that has everything? A few weeks back, I enrolled him in an amazing program at The Children’s Hospital called YAPS (Youth and Pet Survivors). They connect children and dogs that are both dealing with cancer and help them start a pen pal relationship. They share stories back and forth about their lives, families, interests and treatment. Jake got his first email this week from someone in the program. It was a cool e-birthday card, his first one of the week!
