Toby's Foundation asks you to please support the combined efforts of USASA and ASHGI this year at the National Specialty in Greeley,Colorado from April 21 - 25, 2008 by participating in the health screenings and blood draw being offered. The health and wellbeing of our breed depends on your cooperation. In particular, Toby's Foundation asks you to please give blood for Dr. Ned Patterson's Epilepsy Research Project at the University of Minnesota. For more information please visit the USASA website at www.australianshepherds.org and click on the Health and Genetics Committee Notice and ASHGI at www.ashgi.org/nationalspecialtyclinic.htm.
The University of MN research project for the Australian Shepherd breed has been made possible through the combined efforts and donations of USASA, USAS Foundation, ASHGI and Toby's Foundation. Please continue to help us collect blood samples and raise funds for this important research so together we can defeat canine epilepsy. For more information on this research project please visit our website at www.tobysfoundation.org and click on our research page and blood sample submission page. If you are
