Two dogs, 2000 miles to find a cure for K-9 cancer

This video has the power to move the soul of anyone who has ever cupped a furry head in their hands, looked into loving eyes and had to say good-bye - not because a life was lived long and well - but because of a menacing disease - the word we all hate cancer. After you've watched the trailer, please visit the web site, too. This walk began last year and continues on. This man and his two dogs have made many stops along their way to educate others about their venture and to emphasize the need for cancer research to find a cure - a cure for our beloved dogs who give us unconditional love until they breathe their last breath. If anyone should try to tell you that human beings need more help, remember, most cures for humans began with our best friends on four feet.


To learn more about this wonderful trio, just click on the photo. It will take you to their web site and links that give a volume of information and their media coverage about this remarkable journey. If you have ever loved an animal, there is no way you will not be moved. They also have a facebook page and you can follow them on twitter as they tweet quite often!

Keep up the good work so one day we won't have to worry about this dread disease taking our friends from us.

Hi, Thanks for leaving the comment I lost the love of my life dog Jake Sept 25th 2008 to Hemangiosarcoma. HE was just past his 13th birthday - I miss him every day and agreeing to euthanse him and saying goodbye that day was absolutely the hardest thing that I have ever done.

We'll be back xo Susan & Winnie Dixon
