FORT COLLINS — After Luke Robinson lost a Great Pyrenees dog to cancer, he and his two remaining dogs took a walk — a long walk.

The trio walked 2,000 miles over two years, from Austin, Texas, to Boston, Mass., to share his story and raise awareness about cancer in dogs.

That effort grew into a foundation and a national effort to bring dogs and owners together to raise money for cancer research to benefit both people and dogs.

Fort Collins and 11 other communities across the country held the 2 Million Dogs Foundation’s first Puppy Up walks on Sunday.

One of Robinson’s other dogs, 9-year-old Great Pyrenees Murphy, was treated for nasal cancer at Colorado State University in August.
