HOUSTON -- A pair of champion pooches visited the young patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center Wednesday.
Stump, this year's Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show champion, was at the pediatric patients to help launch a new line of pet products by the Childrens Art Project.
He was joined by J.R., winner of the 2001 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

Both dogs live in the Houston area.
Stump and J.R. were both showing off a flag bandana featuring the artwork of three pediatric patients, who were at the event.
The Childrens Art Project features cards, stationary, clothing and other items designed by young patients at MD Anderson. The money raised helps send the children to camp each summer.
All of the pet products are available for purchase online at or at the Children's Art Project's Uptown store off the West Loop at Post Oak.
