pages emanating from the northern tip of Idaho,

local school or serving up
spaghetti at the Chic n' Chop during the annual
Cancer Society fundraiser.
Dr. Becker didn't come by fame, fame came to
him, because he has the uncanny ability to talk
to and answer the questions people have when it
comes to their pets, even on topics, such as a
cat's hairballs, that people don't much think to
It's his due, and Dr. Becker could be frolicking
in the limelight.
He isn't, though.

of new methods and ideas so he can keep
