DEAR DR. GOTT: My husband was diagnosed with a rapidly growing malignant brain cancer in 2004. He was 57 years old.
DEAR ABBY: I have seen several dogs and cats left outside in below-zero weather this winter. Yes, animals have fur to help them keep warm, but that doesn't mean they don't get cold (even in dog houses).

These innocent animals can suffer from frostbite and hypothermia just like humans.
