Hey everypawdy in Southern CA, sorry for the late notice but we just now realized that we can be there this Sunday to walk with Puppy Up Foundation's Luke Robinson, as he walks the last mile of his 2,000 mile journey from Canada to Mexico.

According to the PuppyUp Foundation blog announcement:

The public is invited to join Luke Robinson and his 2 Great Pyrenees Indiana and Hudson on December 14th  for their final mile from Imperial Beach Pier to the Mexican border. People can meet up with Luke, Indy, and Hudson at Imperial Beach Pier (2 Elder Avenue, Imperial Beach, CA) at 10 a.m. to walk the final mile with them!

This is bittersweet for us, as we and our fearless leader, Spirit Jerry, were with Luke during his sendoff party for his first incredible journey from Austin to Boston back in 2008. This time our big barker Wyatt Ray will be joining us, so put on your ear plugs and come out to celebrate Luke, Indy and Hudson's achievement in raising even more awareness about canine cancer research. Hope you can make it!

Oh how I wish I could be there.... it's a bit south for me (almost San Diego, right?). Or is it Orange County? 

I wish I had had the day off when they came through LA - they stopped at ACC (advanced critical care), Shelby's hospital and I would have love to have popped by but it was during the work week! 

Have a blast!!! What an amazing mission.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
