POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 21,2011 Page7 TEAM DONNE 2000 FOURTH ANNUAL "Cure for Breast Cancer" Walk You can email your questions to postgazette@aol.com to the attention of Freeway. Don't forget folks, Freeway is not a vet, so please keep the questions light-hearted! Thanks. I can't believe Halloween is here already. Here are a few tips for my pooch friends. No tricks, no treats; that bowlful of candy is for trick- or-treaters not for us pooches. Chocolate in all forms can be dangerous for dogs and cats, and tin foil and cellophane candy wrap- pers can be hazardous if swallowed. A carved pumpkin cer- tainly is festive, but exercise extreme caution if you choose to add a candle. Pets can easily knock a lit pump- kin over and cause a fire. If you do dress up your pet, make sure the costume isn't annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict the animal's movement or hearing, or impede his ability to breathe or bark. Keep a look out for small dangling, or easily chewed-off pieces on the cos- tume that your pet could choke on. All but the most social dogs and cats should be kept in a separate room during peak trick-or-treat visiting hours. Too many strangers can be scary and stressful for pets. ID please! Always make sure your dog or cat has proper identification. If for any reason your pet escapes and becomes lost, a collar and tags and/or microchip increase the chances that he or she will be returned to you. To ALL my readers and especially my friends at the Post-Gazette have a "Happy Halloween" and keep safe. That's all for now! REMEMBER TO PICK UP AFTER YOUR PET AND KEEP OUR NEIGHBORHOOD CLEANHY To all my pooch friends and their companions on Friday, October 28 th and Monday, October 31 "t 9:00 am-5:00 pm. Please take your pooch to the Post-Gazette and pick up a doggie halloween treat bag. Freeway would love to see his pooch friends pick up their treats because every one of them is very special to me. 4 th Annual Halloween Party In Loving Memory of ROBERT SORRENTINO Hosted by the Sorrentino's Stompers Please join us on Saturday, October 29, 2011 at the Knights of Columbus located at 75 West School Street, Charlestown.

The team shirts read, Team Donne 2000 "Unite Conquistiamo', i.e., "United we will conquer. They raised over $3,400.00. They were very successful both in their fundraising and in having completed their six mile walk. Together we can all make a difference and with your continued support, the day will come when no one will have to hear the words, "You have breast cancer." Women forty years and older are encouraged to get their yearly mammograms and also perform their monthly self exams.
