Despite My Tendency To Snark
Pugs of War has a cause: Interstitial Cystitis. The link takes you to the IC Support Group of Manhattan which has collected several valuable links on one site. IC is a bladder affliction and as such is one of those things that most people just 'don't want to think about' and is not the subject of polite conversaton. However, for those it afflicts, it is a source of constant pain and is a fetter on a free and active life.
With all the pleading for donations for hurricane victims, PoW wants to call your attention to the PayPal button at the bottom of the linked page. Please consider supporting IC relief in your charitable giving. You won't see a telethon for it but you would be doing something very good for far more people than you'd imagine. I have donated $100 and plan to make that at least a yearly contribution. The tagline here at PoW will stay through the end of the year and I will be posting monthly about supporting IC.
