2 Dogs 2 Thousand Miles

There was a great segment on the Today show this morning about a man who has spent the last 2 years walking from Austin, TX to Boston, MA to raise awareness of canine cancers.  His walking companions are 2 Great Pyr and he is walking in memory of a dog he lost to osteosarcoma.  The name of his odyssey is 2 Dog 2000 Miles and you can read his story at 2 Dogs 2000 Miles. When you visit this site, check out the very cool store they have with their logo - Puppy Up!

His journey to Boston is complete and now he is working on something called 2 Million Dogs as a way for every pet owner to get involved in the fight against companion animal cancers.  The goal is to get 2 million people to pledge to walk 2 miles with their dogs.  This is still in its very early stages but I will be attaching a widget to my blog so you can pledge to do your part.  The website is 2 Million Dogs.

I've never lost a pet to cancer but I have so many friends who have that I wholeheartedly support this.


  1. Having just lost our Rudy to lymphoma you can bet I'm signing up - bad knees and all!

  2. I saw that this morning too! Love the "Puppy Up" logo. :-)

    Oh, Laura, I did not know that Rudy had passed. I have gotten so far behind on blogging, I surely missed it. I'm so sorry, sweet Rudy...
