The new year isn’t always a time of celebration. For my guest this week it's an emotional time. Luke Robinson made headlines a few years ago when he walked from Austin TX to Boston MA taking 826 days and covering 2,300 miles. Why? Malcom, his Great Pyrenees died from cancer in January 2006, and in honor of the love they shared, he felt the need to do something important. What he started was a conversation and awareness of cancer not only in our animal companions but started asking the question… Why do humans and animals both get cancer? After his trip he gathered some great people and created the 2 Million Dogs Foundation to raise awareness and support research in this area. Join us in conversation with Luke and you will soon find yourself enrolled in his mission!

This weeks blogs…

Another week of fun and interesting articles culled from the blog sphere…  Some of Seattle’s most at-risk students are getting help with their reading skills, but not from people. Read about the special program in Seattle: Dogs, once-homeless kids share a love of reading (and each other). Next up is an article highlighting Susan Orlea, author, on NPR talking about her new book: Rin Tin Tin: The Life and the Legend. And completing a conversation we started last year when we had Helen Woodward Animal Foundation on late last year talking about the Iams Home for the Holidays Adoption Drive and their commitments. Well the numbers are in: Iams Home 4 the Holidays Helps Over 1 Million Pets Find Homes. Details; 1,267,541 pets adopted and 5 million meals donated to pets in need. What a great way to end the year!
