Great video indeed! Thanks for sharing. Luke and the Boys have been walking across the country since we helped launch their cancer awareness walk at the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles kickoff barbecue in Austin, where we shot this video interview with Luke Robinson.
Their coming up on their final mile, and we sincerely wish we could be there for the walk into Boston. We strongly suggest anyone who can make it, please register to attend the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles Puppy Up! celebration events on Saturday, June 19.
Then, stay tuned for more information about 2 Million Dogs, the new nationwide effort spearheaded by Luke and the Boys to end cancer with a focus on comparitive oncology.
We’ll use this topic to provide updates about the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles walk as Luke, Hudson and Murphy reach Boston, the final destination of their two-year journey – the first phase in their continuing efforts to end cancer.
Just received this update from the latest 2 Dogs 2000 Miles newsletter …
Boston Puppy Up! Celebration Weekend
June 18 -20, 2010
Luke, Hudson and Murphy have Puppied Up! for over 2 years and 2,400 miles. They’ve walked through rain storms, snow storms and heat waves – carrying everything they need in packs on their backs and camping along the way in a pup tent.
They are going to walk their last mile into Boston on June 19th. Join them at the Memorial service to remember the companions, canine or human, that we’ve lost to cancer.
After the Memorial Service, walk the last mile into Boston with them. The walk will end at the Puppy Up! Festival where there will be vendors, food, entertainment, and more.
In the evening join us at the Puppy Up! Party and Auction at the Fairmont Copley Hotel.
The funds raised from these events will be used to launch the next phase 2 Million Dogs “Cancer. Touches. Everyone.” Comparative Oncology: A New Hope in Cancer Research.

The 2 Dogs newsletter also announced the final Memorial Shirt (#6) that Luke will wear on his 2,400 mile journey with the boys. Follow this link for more information or to order Memorial Shirt #6.
In just six weeks, Luke, Hudson and Murphy will walk their Final Mile into Boston. Hard to believe it’s been over two years since we helped kick off the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles walk in Austin. Please join us in supporting the 2 Dogs team as they help prepare for the upcoming big events …
Join Luke as he celebrates the end of one journey – 2 Dogs 2000 Miles, and begins another – 2 Million Dogs.
One man. One mission. Two dogs. 2000 miles. From Austin to Boston.
A walk for companions with cancer. A walk to commemorate the ones we’ve lost. A walk for solace for those who suffer still. A walk for hope. And a walk for a cure

Puppy Up! is the 2Dogs2000Miles version of man up or cowboy up neither of which can hold a candle to the undaunted spirit of the puppy. Their instinct for survival is so great that they’re unaffected by self doubt or discouraged by uncertain outcomes or the opinions of others. It’s that spirit that we carry throughout the walk and that of cancer patients who struggle physically and emotionally with challenges. We’ve tried to capture that spirit in our puppy up! brand. Every purchase supports the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles cause!

This fun, informal Meet & Greet will be at the Parkman Bandstand at the Boston Common from 6:30 to 8:00 PM EDT Friday evening, rain or shine.

After nearly three years and 2400 miles, Luke and the boys are getting closer to Boston every day! Check out today’s 2 Dogs Daily Report for the latest updates about their final mile walk and Puppy Up! celebrations.
Check out the latest special report from the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles headquarters …
Well everyone, Boston’s just a par 3 away. 10 days and 51 miles to go!
And the celebration once we get there is going to be really quite something. Already we have people from 20 states signed up to walk the final mile with us. It’s amazing the friends we’ve made on this journey.
But Boston is as much a beginning as an end. “What’s next?”, I get asked a lot and we’ll be making several important announcements Saturday nite. It’s been an adventure of a lifetime these past three years but it’s time for the next phase of my life’s commitment to cancer research.
Recently we partnered with the Canine Hereditary Cancer Consortium in the largest comparative oncology study. The potential of their research is tremendous and I hope you take the time to read more about it in the nearby block.
So many serendipitous things have happened throughout the 2,300 miles it’s not surprising that this opportunity came to us as the walk nears its completion.
I want to thank everyone who stood by us; believed in our mission and resolve; sponsored us and gave support whether it was a warm bed to sleep in or just a kind note of encouragement.
I want to thank the angels who have walked with us, kept watch over us, and gave us safe passage through the treacherous stretches.
Not all of you can join us in Boston for this historic celebration I know. Your presence will be missed. The pioneers who are travelling far for that final mile to remember the ones we have lost and rejoice in a new day and a new beginning…
