to have taken all the grief and anger at loosing Malcolm and to turn it into something positive for so many other people and their pets is astonishing and fabulous! All the pets that I have lost to cancer over the years and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I wonder what they will do after their walk is over? Going back to the "real world" will be hard.

My brother lost his dog to cancer and I have had many good friends go through the same thing - one very recently. This is definitely a topic that deserves attention! I applaud Mr. Robinson for his efforts.

This is so cool! But How would you carry everything that you need for yourself and then at the same time everything you need for these two big dogs. A smaller dog or a puppy may be easier.

Just hauling enough water for two big dogs would be a hassle. I wonder if he had someone following him in a vehicle? Or, maybe he pulled a cart of some kind?

Not easy for sure- but I think it is wonderful that he is bringing attention to this horrible disease.

That's an interesting story, but I'm not sure how walking all that distance with two dogs is going to make a difference or if the point couldn't have been made in a less drastic way. The walk had to be hard on the dogs, too. They probably enjoyed spending all that time with their "man", but won't they have to undergo a MAJOR adjustment once Robinson acquires some "stability" and "routine" in his life?

And if he has "gained substantial media attention", I don't know why I haven't heard of him before this. Usually Entertainment Tonight, Inside Edition, etc. air stories like this, but I never saw any.

Hi Michele! He has been interviewed all along his amazing journey by local radio and TV stations. He recently appeared on the "Today" show. He has also appeared at various animal welfare gatherings and volunteered at many animal shelters along the way. If you like, you may check out his web site at:
