Walk for your dog, walk for my dog, walk for all dogs. 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! walk comes to New Milford CT November 7th, 2010.
Join thousands of people across America who will be walking their dogs on November 7th, 2010 in the inaugural 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! walk. The walk is to raise awareness of our four legged puppy friends who suffer from cancer, the money raised will be used for the study of canine cancer.
A man named Luke Robinson lost his four legged friend Malcolm to cancer. He walked with his 2 other dogs, Hudson and Murphy 2000 miles across the United States from Austin TX to Boston MA to help raise awareness of canine cancer. You can read about it their journey here.
I know my pooch Duncan is part of our family. Dog he may be to outsiders and those that don’t understand, to me he is my best friend, my companion, my confidante. We love him dearly. My Duncan is not in shape to participate in the 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! walk, but he will be cheering you all on! Walk for Duncan, walk for all the dogs and their family members who have suffered through through this horrible disease. Pledge money if you can’t participate.
