White Dog and Quinn are aware that many many two- and four leggeds in our community know all too well that Cancer. Touches Everyone. And like our fellow bloggers, we are committed to fighting in every way possible to bring about an end to this terror.

On November 7, in 12 cities (and virtually), dogs and their humans will join together to raise money and awareness for cancer research in the 2 Million Dog Puppy Up! Inaugural Walk. We plan to be in Fort Collins CO, The White Dog Army, doing our part. Sagira, we know will be in Ohio, walking as well, our spiritual companion. Many of our generous caring friends will be there supporting us in spirit and in funding. They will be represented in a special way so that they, too, can share this small victory in conquering cancer.

For those who are not familiar, 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!

The walk benefits the study of canine cancer and comparative oncology. White Dog and our family believe that all creatures benefit from this research and that canine advances move forward the fight on the human front as well. And kitties are not immune from this killer, either...so lets all join together as partners for a new hope in cancer research.

Be a part of history this November 7th as thousands in cities all across America join in on the promise to bring awareness to cancer. Sign up now for the Inaugural 2 Million Dogs Puppy Up! Walk in your area… there will never be another first time like this to Puppy Up! against cancer. If there is not a walk near you, join us virtually at http://www.2milliondogs.org/ or support those who are walking.

A cancer-free world starts with one dog, each mile at a time. Thanks for your help and support.
