Tonka and I have a couple of FB friends that are really awesome people working hard for a great cause. The cause is canine cancer which is now something that has struck Tonka twice and will be what eventually ends our journey. The fact of the matter is that cancer is becoming more and more prevalent in not only humans but also our companion animals and we need to find out why.
Recently I had a phone conversation with Luke about my boy Tonka and his tumor, unfortunately Luke has become quite an expert on canine nasal tumors. Not long after their legendary walk his boy Murphy was taken away from us all too soon by one. The thing about Luke that resonates immediately is how much he truly cares about life and how passionate he is about stopping this insidious disease from taking it away so quickly. His passion has fueled the 2 Million Dogs 2 Miles organization whose tag line is - cancer. touches. everyone.
The premise is simple, get 2 million dogs to walk in a series of smaller events across the US.
These walks are known as the PuppyUp! walks and are spread out all across the country. My friend Pamela Pyle is doing the Texoma walk in November in honor of Tonka and Swee'Pea. You can find out more about the walk here and help her out on her personal donation page here.
