Unfortunately, Taffe has been ill for some time, though no one would have known it since she still handled (and did it well) until recently. She has a very rare form of cancer and, in the last several weeks, she has had three major surgeries already and another one is scheduled early next year. Chemo and radiation won’t work for Taffe’s cancer.
Bill and Taffe have medical insurance, but the costs of Taffe’s treatment have long exceeded what insurance can cover. A website, www.friendsoftaffe.com has been established so Taffe’s friends can help. This is a terrible illness and Taffe is one of the nicest people in the dog world.
If you know Taffe – or have just admired her in the ring – and you would like to contribute something to help with her medical bills, the new www.friendsoftaffe.com website can tell you more about where to send a check.
