Charley won…and so did Bone Cancer Dogs!!!

Tripawds is a user-supported community. Thank you for your support!



Charley won the Cru Vin Dogs Wine’s TLC photo contest!!!  That means we win a case of wine (we are picking The Loyal Companion Red Blend which was rated an 88 and a “Best Buy” by Wine Enthusiast) and Bone Cancer Dogs, Inc. will receive $100!


Here’s what was posted on Cru Vin Dogs Wine Facebook page: 

Congratulations to Charley! Our TLC photo contest winner. His mom, Ellen, will receive a case of The Loyal Companion wine and $100 donation to the dog charity of her choice! Thanks to everyone who participated.


And here’s what was posted on the Cru Vin Dogs Blog: 

Charley is a four year old chocolate Lab with an amazing story. When he was two years old, he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (bone cancer). He lost one of his front legs, but none of his enthusiasm for life. He runs, jumps and counter-surfs.

Ellen, Charley’s mom, says, “Charley reminds us every day to cherish life and to enjoy each and every day… he is living with cancer, not dying from cancer!”


Thank you to everyone who voted!!!  Since BCD just funded their 3rd clinical trial (in the past 2 years) at North Carolina State to investigate the use of Palladia with OSA, I know that the $100 will be put to good use!!!  Here’s more info about the trial funded by BCD:


Hugs and chocolate Labby kisses,
Ellen & Charley xoxo

    We are not at all surprised that Charley won! He could have won on charisma alone! Thank you, Ellen, for choosing to share the love with BCD and helping advance OSA research. If you hear more about this upcoming study, update us please.

    Hooray for super model Charley. Never any doubt in my mind that he would win!

    Wow! Congratulations from Ruby and me. How could a beautiful 3 legged chocolate lab not win? (We’re a litle partial to the color brown around here . . . )
