Trust's, Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund, at the University of Guelph
A fund devoted to providing financial assistance for the advancement of health,
health care, and quality of life, for companion animals. More than 120 studies

investigations into common health problems, the development of new diagnostics
and therapeutic techniques, studies involving the human-animal bond and animal
behaviour, and the upgrading of the Small Animal Clinic's Intensive Care Unit.

programmes, under the University of Guelph's charitable status number.

help our animal companions, and change the punch line of the cruel joke we call
The Smiling Blue Skies Cancer Fund is in loving memory of our beautiful Blues
Man, who taught us the true meaning of being a show dog. He showed us how to
live, love, laugh, and learn.
