2dogs2000miles event

hi every bloggie!
Last weekend I went to a very special event.

I attended the grande finale for the 2dogs2000miles trek across the country. Luke, Hudson and Murphy walked... yeppers walked from Austin Texas to Boston Massachusetts. It took 2 years but for a cause.. raising funds for cancer research. Please visit their 2dogs2000miles blog to learn more . Here they are.. live in person. Right smack in the middle! Pawsome!

And of course, we took a minute to remember all the canine pals who lost their struggle with cancer. In fact, I took a minute to remember Libby and Jazze who were Tula's predecessors.

I had to get close to these two amazing pups. I bet they're super duper tired.

I was suppose to walk the final mile but we got all lost in the back bay trying to find the meet up spot and decided to just watch them walk into the Boston Commons. Anyways, you can watch the final steps too. Ahem..never mind my blog assistant, she was a bit weepy watching them. What an amazing thing to do.

I took so many photos. It was a great event.

Oh and the Boston Snow Dogs were here which meant one thing. Hussie alert.. oops I mean Husky alert. I had my eye on this one..

She, of course, being a proper hussie- oops husky assertively stuck her snooter right up close to me.

I am not a shy guy and had to reciprocate. Remember that Miss Khyra kept sending me private part photos. Now I got to see these hussie parts up close. Huh? I know this is a serious event but a boy's gotta have fun too.

Then while we were watching the group photo shoot, I turned around and this guy wanted a photo of ME!

Okay okay.. I'll give you a super close shot.

Wait wait.. I'm coming in.

That's when I was interupted by someone who was worried I'd get stuck. Silly willy. I know what I'm doing. Oh well. You can still help by purchasing these super cool t-shirts and other stuff. Mom got a t-shirt. From what I understand, Luke's next venture is 2 million dogs to walk 2 miles. Stay tuned for more to see how you can participate.


  1. How cool! We've read a lot about that amazing walk, but you're the first and only dog we know who got to see the event when he finished. You are one lucky dog! I'm not surprised that people wanted pictures of your fuzzy cuteness!
