Acme Canine 2010

In 2010, Alexandra Horowitz, a cognitive scientist, explained how dogs perceive their daily worlds, each other, and that other quirky animal, the human. Her book, Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know; 63 weeks as a New York Times bestseller!

The top 10 durable dog toys of 2010 included the Planet Dog Orbee bone (one of our favorites), the Smugga Wubba Dog toy, Chuckit! ball launcher.  Several of these toys are now a part of The Woofie Shop.

Researchers identified a new target for the treatment of lymphoma and tested a potential new drug in pet dogs afflicted with the disease. They found at low doses, the compound, called S-PAC-1, arrested the growth of tumors in three of six dogs tested and induced partial remission in a fourth.  The results of the study, conducted by researchers at the University of Illinois, appeared in the journal Cancer Research.

Also in 2010 Acme Canine’s staff marched in the Cincinnati PuppyUp walk for canine cancer, were interviewed by Tracie Hotcher of Dog Talk radio on indoor dog games and activities, and participated in Culture Fest at Huntington Park.

It was a growth in the community encouraging Acme Canine to change it’s name to Acme Canine Resource Center to better represent our vision of being a resource to dog owners.

As part of Acme Canine’s 10th anniversary celebration we are sharing special moments over the years.  Each issue of the Bark will feature a different Acme Canine year.
