In the Spotlight with Luke
Robinson: 2 Dogs, 2,000 Miles
Since March 2008, a determined Texan named Luke
and his Great Pyrenees duo of Murphy
been walking from Austin to Boston to
raise awareness - and find answers - for fighting cancer in people and pets.
They make this nearly two-year, 2,000-mile journey in honor of Malcolm
, Robinson's late-great dog who
succumbed to bone cancer.
On June 19, the trio will complete their
2,000-mile journey by walking their final mile into Boston. A weekend-long, dog-friendly celebration is
planned to welcome them. Friends, family and dog lovers from 18 states plan to
walk the final mile with Luke, Murphy and Hudson. For details on the event and
this courageous journey, please visit www.2dogs2000miles.org
As a guest on Arden's Oh Behave Show on Pet Life Radio
(Episode #97), Luke declared that this 2,000-mile
trek is just the first step in his lifelong commitment to find a cure for
cancer. We give paws and applause to Luke, Murphy and Hudson. To learn about
their next phase, visit www.2milliondogs.org
Who says dogs can't read? Or have a touch of rebel inside them?
How else can you explain why stores with open doors and signs declaring NO DOGS
are the only ones your leashed dog wants to enter during those downtown walks?
Cats could become millionaires by betting people in a game of
purrs. Cats are the only species capable of purring while exhaling and
inhaling. Don't believe me? Try purring while taking a breath.
In this political climate, It may pay to be non-paw-istan
and heed Harry Truman's advice: "If you want a
friend in Washington, get a dog."
Down Thunderstorm Fears
4th of July fireworks can be terrifying experiences for some dogs and cats,
triggering unwanted and harmful behaviors that can be difficult to treat. These heightened reactions to loud noises and
nasty weather can result in destructive behavior and injuries in panicked pets.
Pet owners in the
top 10 lightning-prone states - Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama,
Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and Oklahoma -- know
this panicked response by pets better than anyone, but separation anxiety and
noise phobias affect dogs and cats in every state.
