HARLEYSVILLE, Pa. — If man’s best friend is a dog, then who is a dog’s best friend? That would be Rover. Or Glow. Or Ivan or Raina. The four canines recently donated precious pints of blood to their fellow pooches. And they did it without having to travel far from home: They visited an animal bloodmobile. Similar to the Red Cross vehicles for humans, the University of Pennsylvania’s traveling veterinary lab goes to where the donors are to make it easier to give.
