Here is BFM Liz with another Down by the Creek Rescued pup. This pup lost all of its teeth because of the poor conditions it lived in earlier. Still cute as a bugs ear with its little tongue hanging out. It brightens Liz's day up. You can't help but smile...

May is Asthma and Allergy Month. Each year, the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) declares May to be "National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month." It's a peak season for those with asthma and allergies, and a perfect time to educate your patients, family, friends, co-workers and others about these diseases. There is no cure for asthma and allergies, and many deaths are preventable with proper treatment and care. Ten people a day die from asthma. Asthma affects more than 24.5 million Americans. More than 6 million children under the age of 18 have asthma. More than 50 million Americans have all types of allergies – pollen, skin, latex and more. The rate of allergies is climbing. Please join us in raising awareness for these common diseases.
