On June 19, 2010, Luke, Hudson and Murphy of 2Dogs2000Miles are walking the final mile of an epic two-year, 2,400 mile journey to help end canine cancer. From the time we met them at their kickoff party in Austin, Texas in February 2008 to today, this dedicated trio has walked through hazardous conditions, bad (and good!) weather and carried everything on their backs for the journey.

Please join them as they walk their last mile into Boston on June 19th.

For all Boston area tripawds, fans and those who can make it, now is the time to register to attend the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles Puppy Up! celebration events. After the last mile and memorial service to remember all those who have been affected by canine cancer, a festival will be held with vendors, food, entertainment, and more. And in the evening there will be a gala Puppy Up! Party and Auction at the pet-friendly Fairmont Copley Hotel.

All funds raised from these events will be used to launch the next phase of 2 Dogs 2000 Miles, which is 2 Million Dogs “Cancer. Touches. Everyone.” Comparative Oncology: A New Hope in Cancer Research.

Tripawds sends a hearty “Puppy Up!” and all out wags and licks to Luke and the Boys. Although we are very sad that we can’t be there in pawson, we hope that there will be lots of Tripawds family members there to help celebrate with this amazing trio!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

Bob really wanted to take Trouble and go, but I just can’t see it working logistically for us.  He has the COPD issues and Troub isn’t going to make a mile without lots of rest – and then we still have to get them both back to the hotel.  It would be so cool to be able to be there, wouldn’t it!
