The article is interesting having just lost my 10 year old Shih Tzu to lymphoma. It paints a rosy picture and while it gives readers hope, I don’t mean to be a downer but what happened in my situation was anything but rosy. Though my dog was early stage, and we attempted chemo. Not all dogs will react positively to chemo. I spent $8K within less than a month due to two negative reactions to only the first two chemo attempts (two different drugs). Not to mention, not everyone has pet insurance though i was looking in December and my dog was diagnosed early January. So we went the non-chemo route…still far more expensive than the article mentions. I’m not just writing about the money…it seems far too many dogs are getting lymphoma and no one can tell for sure if it is the fertilizers/weed n feed products that are going on everybody lawns (without anyone knowing they cause this cancer – not labeled that they can cause cancer) or if it is genetic. My thought is if you don’t know for sure it was the fertilizers/weed products you also don’t know for sure that it’s not. If a product like weed/fertilizers were on the market and we found it caused cancer in children it would be regulated and off the market in a heart beat. Our pets are family, they are like children to many of us. We need to go after MONSANTO and have these products labeled!!! Or, not even used around pets.

The long-awaited Driftboard item will be coming soon to Fortnite for a limited time as announced via the in-game message of the day!

Since it’s announcement prior to week 9 of Fortnite Season 7, players have anxiously awaited the addition of a new mobility / vehicular item in Fortnite – the Driftboard.

Despite countless leaks of Driftboard gameplay and assets, it has yet be officially revealed aside from teaser images and the Season 7 Week 9 loading screen.

Stylin’ and Profilin’

Mobility. Style. Flare. Put your own spin on the game with the new limited time Driftboard!

It’s not yet known why exactly Fortnite’s Driftboard was delayed for such a long time. Many fans speculate that Epic Games simply wanted to be sure that the item was released in a well-balanced state to avoid controversy such as the Infinity Blade.

Despite being delayed for roughly 2 months, gameplay of the Driftboard has existed since mid December 2018 due to exploits used on the mobile Fortnite client.

It seems that Epic Games has since decided to make the Driftboard a limited-time item due to the design and impact that the Driftboard has on the game.

The v7.40 files contained assets for a Driftin’ Limited Time Mode, perhaps the Driftboard will be exclusive to this playlist.

Driftin’

Land near a Red Supply Drop, grab a Driftboard and some weapons, meet up with your team and race to eliminate the enemies. Last team standing wins!

What are your thoughts on the Driftboard?

Claw-biting Cutest Pet Contest Winners Unveiled with Top Honors Going to Pet Owners from Offices of Reps. Miller and Kelly, Sen. Rubio

Washington, D.C. – (September 29, 2015) The love of animals trumped politics tonight as the Animal Health Institute (AHI) brought together members of Congress and Hill staffers from both sides of the aisle for Pet Night on Capitol Hill. Tuesday night’s event marked the 19th year pet lovers have gathered for the popular event, which included the unveiling of the Cutest Pets on Capitol Hill. Top honors in this year’s contest went to “Killer” the dog, from U.S. Rep. Jeff Miller’s Office; “Mila” the cat, from U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly’s office; and “Mack” the horse, from U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio’s office.

         

[Winners: Killer from Rep. Miller’s Office, Mila from Rep. Kelly’s Office, and Mack from Sen. Rubio’s Office.]

“AHI’s Pet Night is a favorite on Capitol Hill. This gathering celebrates the bond between people and their pets and also shows us that regardless of politics, we can come together over a shared love of our animal friends,” said Alex Mathews, president and CEO of AHI. “Our fun event also serves as a chance to remind pet owners how the availability of medicine to keep animals healthy plays an important role in promoting the human-animal bond. Increased awareness and understanding about the relationship between human and animal health ultimately helps prevent disease transmission from pets and food animals and helps protect public health.”

During the event, U.S. Rep. Kurt Schrader unveiled this year’s winners, who were selected via a two-part voting system – demonstrating that even in election season not everyone on Capitol Hill fights like cats and dogs.

First, a panel of Washington, D.C. celebrity judges narrowed a competitive field of hundreds of furry, feathered and scaly entries – nominated by members and staffers – down to the finalists for cutest dog, cutest cat and cutest exotic animal. The judges included: Francesca Chambers of the Daily Mail Online; Ashley Gallagher, DVM, of Friendship Hospital; Erwin Gomez of Karma Beauty Lounge; and Michael Schaffer, editor of Washingtonian. After the naming of finalists, the public voted online to select the winners; nearly 12,000 total votes were cast.

In addition to the Cutest Pets on Capitol Hill competition, Pet Night offered attendees the opportunity to meet this year’s celebrity pets – Jagger, canine star of the movie “Max,” and Frosty, who plays Larry the white cat in the hit television program “Modern Family.”
