Puppy Up! and Walk in Auburn, Washington State

Posted by Erich Trapp on July 28, 2011

Sadie was a rescue, a sweet tempered girl we got from a local shelter. We were just getting to know each other when she got lethargic. We took her to the vet and she had massive internal bleeding due to advanced spleen cancer.

Popeye was a goof ball. Once he was chasing a bird in his air space, looking up while running, and ran into a swing set at full speed. He got up and looked around to see if anyone had seen him! Popeye also died of bone cancer.

On November 6th, 2011 we will be having our second annual 2 Million Dogs 2 Miles Puppy Up Walk in Washington State, in Auburn, Washington at Roegner Park, 601 Oravetz Road.

Joker was a sweet boy who is pictured with Mocha the pet skunk. He lived to the age of seven when he was diagnosed with bone cancer.

This walk has a special meaning this year because of Murphy’s fight and bravery in the face of this terrible disease. We will raise money and awareness in his memory as we walk the path along the banks of the White River.

My wife Ja Cee and I have lost 3 Great Pyrenees dogs to cancer, two to bone cancer and a rescue to spleen cancer, so this is a personal fight we are in against cancer!

Last year we met several dogs at our Walk who had cancer; some were in remission and cancer free, and we knew for others this would be their last walk, but they were there walking with their owners so other dogs might live cancer free.

I invite you to join us on November 6th at 10 AM to noon local time for registration, and walk with us at noon to support those with cancer, honor those we have lost and walk for those we can help. For more information about our Walk and to sign up, please visit our web page.
