Few things pull the heart strings more than a sick puppy - a chance to help can give you a warm fuzzy the size of Kentucky. On Monday, local rock music lovers can help Tic Tac (a white Labrador pup sick with the parvo virus) while getting down to some of the choicest music the Tel Aviv scene has to offer. Tic Tac's owner is Oren Mintz, a music producer and filmmaker who has put together a fundraising concert to help cover the high cost of treatments. Tic Tac and other parvo-suffering canines' digestive systems are attacked and unable to absorb nutrients, which causes an array of horrible side-effects including dehydration, vomiting, depression and particularly foul-smelling and bloody diarrhea. If left untreated, there is a high rate of death, often when the virus moves into the heart, causing congestive heart failure. With treatment there is an approximate 80 percent survival rate, though health will be weakened for the remainder of the dog's life. Hoping to make sure that Tic Tac has a fighting chance are musicians Dan Toren, Sharon Holtzman, Ran Orion, Yotam Shechter, Jango, DUBBA and more, who will begin to take the stage at 8:30 p.m. at the Sublime music club in South Tel Aviv. Admission is only NIS 30, so there's next to no excuse not to show up, enjoy yourself and help a sick puppy. You can also check out what's going on and learn more about the cause on MySpace (myspace.com/savetictac), where nearly 200 people have already signed on as friends of the event - including such distinguished MySpace users as Mashina, Tomer Yosef, Etgar Keret and Rona Kenan. Sublime is located at 53 Salama St., on the corner of Abarbanel, and may be contacted at (03) 629-8056.
