This a wonderful way to turn a loss into an effort to improve the world. I commend
Luke Robinson on making his dog's life and early death into a cause to save other animals.

With the world in such economic turmoil, there most probably would not be a job for him to go back to. I bet he enjoys this a million more times than what he was doing. I had some friends that traveled around the world and they lived on noodles and veggies,allowing themselves $10.00 a day between them for food, so it can be done!

I think it's very special that Mr. Robinson is trying to bring canine cancer into the public eye through his act, and it sounds like he and his volunteers are making certain that he and the dogs are adequately cared for along the way. They're also not rushing, so there's fewer chances of any of the participants getting too overtired.

I'm not sure I'd do something like this, but I have to applaud Mr. Robinson's dedication to his cause.

Follow Luke, Hudson and Murphy on their way to Boston by signing up for their blog at 2dogs2000miles.blogspot.com, go to their website at www.2dogs2000miles.org or follow them on twitter.

You can help them get to Boston by offering on the road support, a warm place to stay, or by droping off supplies. If you are not on their route you can get together with friends and pay for them to spend the night in a hotel when the weather is too bad for them to walk. Email Lori (lori@2dogs2000miles.org) or Ginger (ginger@2dogs2000miles.org) for more information.

Remember to hug your 'babies' often and tell them you love them.

Puppy Up!

WOW, this guy certainatly choose a good cause. My dog Sis, a two year old St. Bernard/Alaskin Malamute was diagnosed with bone cancer back in September. It manufested in her left hind leg. Otherwise healthy and active, Sis quickly lost weight and muscle mass as the cancer got worse. Luckly my vet caught it, and after x-raying the rest of her body for abnormal bone appearence, took the leg off. Sis now is again active and happy. She runs and plays again and has gained back the weight and muscle mass she lost. I hope and pray that she will be with me for years to come, but being cancer, I will be happy for every minute I have with her. Kudos for all who support finding a cure and fighting this deadly disease.

I would have been honored to give them a place to sleep for a night. And the dogs would have been allowed in too. I went to the site and found they are not going to be coming near where I am.

Hope they make it to their destination with no problems.

People should definitely be more aware to cancer in their pets. I think what he is doing is great...he should have carts made for the dogs so they can help carry some of the gear!

Our 7-year old Golden Retriever, Douley, died 3 weeks after his birthday of cancer of the liver and lung. There was nothing we could do for him except have the fluid that was accumulating around his lungs drained, but after the third time in three weeks that we took him in for this procedure, we decided we were just being selfish and we let him go. I hope this man's efforts help to find a cause and cure for cancer in canines.

I'm sure the dogs don't know what they are walking 'for', but what a great undertaking! I think it is a dangerous world out there, though, and to depend on the kindness of strangers -- well? I wish them all them best.

In my earlier comment, I "gave all the credit" to Luke.

I "sit corrected", Cudos for "Hudson" and "Murphy" too !! ( Although I seriously doubt that they have a clue what all the walking was for . . . it's STILL 2,000 miles !!! )

I am not on his route or near it, cause I would for sure offer assistance in the form of food and shelter if he were.

May God Bless his journey, and may he find a sense of fullness through his travels.
