Web Site of the Month

My pick for Web Site of the Month for July is 2 Million Dogs! This web site was created by the man who walked 2,000 miles with his great pyrenees dogs to raise awareness about canine cancer. It's a web site/plan that is still in the beginning stages since the creator only just finished his two year, 2,000 mile trek in June of this year. His current goal for the organization is to get 2,000,000 dogs to walk two miles to raise awareness. There aren't a whole lot of details on the site just yet, but there will be more forthcoming as things develop. I thought it would be cool to kind of get in on the ground floor and watch as things grow. If you want to join in, there's a pledge box towards the bottom of the page. You just hit the pledge a dog button and it asks for a little information from you. Things like your name, number of dogs, and an email address to contact you by as the plans come together and they figure out what they're going to do.

I think that cancer is something that has touched us all in one way or the other. It's horrible when it hits our canine companions and we're often powerless to do anything about it. What we can do is take the best care of them that we can, do what we're able to try and prevent it, and help those who are raising awareness and much needed money for research. I encourage you to check out the web site and pledge to walk two miles with your dog. Lets see where this goes! Who knows, maybe there will even be local events to be organized!! Either way, check out either of the web sites that I've linked to for more information.:)
