Kelly and I and the 2 Million Dogs Virtual walk

I've decided to do something special each step along the way to celebrate the progress of my book, Dieting With My Dog. The first step is just for writing the book. (Stay tuned for more announcements!) So to celebrate completing the manuscript, I found just the right thing. This Sunday is The 2 Million Dogs 2 Miles walk.

The story of 2 Million Dogs began with a man and his two dogs who embarked on a walk from Austin, TX to Boston, MA inspired by the loss of his Great Pyrenees to cancer. Some of you have heard the story of Hudson, Murphy, and Luke Robinson.

They walked from town to town sharing Malcolm’s story and educating people about cancer in dogs and as they built a nationwide grassroots movement, Mr. Robinson had a vision: 2,000,000 dogs walking simultaneously all across the United States for cancer. If 2 dogs could walk over 2,000 miles surely it was possible!

And that’s how the 2 Million Dogs Foundation was born and the legacy that started out with just a man who lost his beloved dog continues...

November 7th 2010 The 2 Million Dog March Begins! In 12 cities across the country the first puppy up! walks will take place. Kelly and I will be participating in a virtual walk, and would be honored if you would join us in the fundraising effort.

I did hear about this inspirational story long ago and I have yet to catch up to what the results were afterwards. Thank you for reminding me to research this! I will donate $$$ at a later date as I've got to check in w/my budget!
