  1. Wish I would havd known earlier about this walk. My doberman Langston has bone cancer. He had his front left lef amputated in July. He has had five rounds of chemo treatments. He is doing well, but cancer has seeded itself in his lungs. We are hoping to continue treatments, but money is tight.

    I feel like commercial dog food and lack of regulations is somewhat to blame. I realize breeding is a culprit as well. Hope your walk raises a lot of money and a cure is found. The day I lose my best friend, (who is only 8) will bee one of the hardest days of my life.

    1. Stephanie:

      Please enjoy and cherish each day you get with Langston. Our pets do help to remind us to strive to live in the moment and not in the world of what ifs and should haves. Just got back from a pet conference and met Ginger Morgan, who represents Luke Robinson and his two dogs who did the 2 dogs 2000 mile walk to fight cancer. Inspiring!
