Congratulations to Our 2012 Calendar Dogs!

Posted by Erich Trapp on October 8, 2011

Murphy Robinson, our cover dog for 2012.

From 2 Million Dogs’ Executive Director:

Thank you to all who shared photos for our “2012 Cancer Can’t Keep a Good Dog Down” calendar contest. Seeing all those faces in the contest and reading the stories are a constant reminder to me of how brave and strong not only the dogs are, but the people as well. Looking at the calendar all year inspires me to work harder, longer, and smarter to help find a way to prevent our loved ones from getting this horrific disease.

My wish is that someday we will not need to have a calendar contest because no dogs will have cancer. Unfortunately, this year wasn’t the year.  However, through the efforts and generous donations of those involved with the “2012 Cancer Can’t Keep a Good Dog Down” calendar we are moving closer to funding research that may lead to a way to prevent cancer and/or cure it. Cancer. Touches. Everyone.

Ginger Morgan, Executive Director 2 Million Dogs Foundation
