Victoria "Vicki" Rhodes - Wild Blue Dogs Founder

 I’ve always loved dogs, but when I finally decided to get one of my own I never dreamed how they would change me, my life and the way I see the world, and always for the better. Asta and Willie are my inspiration for founding Wild Blue Dogs. If two Welsh Terriers can create such profound change, creating a legacy worthy of them became my mission.

...When Willie was 11 he was diagnosed with transitional cell carcinoma (bladder cancer), a cancer that affects people too. I was devastated but terriers never give up and neither do their owners. With the help of a team of incredibly talented veterinarians we fought cancer every way we could; diet, chemo, radiation, surgery, acupuncture, cold laser, homeopathy. A three to six month prognosis turned into 3 years of life-real, high quality, play in the sunshine LIFE. My dog had the heart of a lion and the extra time we had was priceless. Now I’d like to help others to find their courage and get that extra time too.

Willie isn’t the first loved one I’ve lost to cancer and I hate this disease. I’m now committed to finding improved treatment, new cures through research and taking back some of the time cancer has stolen from all of us.
