The Blogs:

NOVADog Blog
Janelle Welch is publisher of NOVADog magazine, and owner of two rescued Pit Bull mixes Chance and Nikki and a Torti cat named Savannah that bosses everyone around. She is blogging in memory of Jake her Beagle Basset Hound mix that succumbed to cancer in December 2009.

Chicks Love Beer
Beth Bates is a professional blogger and digital marketer, so starting a blog seemed the logical way to share her love of beer. Beth is also president and founder at GoodDogz.org, Inc, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating potential dog owners on dog selection and care and supporting the efforts of rescue groups. GoodDogz believes that by assisting with good dog-owner matches, it will give each family the best opportunity for a life-long relationship with their new dog and help to keep dogs out of shelters. Beth will be blogging in honor of Hugo, her mastiff who was diagnosed with cancer a year ago.

Daisy and Bob’s Blog
Lydia Best the owner of Everything and The Dog, a pet sitting and dog walking service that employs over 100 dog walkers throughout Northern VA. Best became involved with 2 Dogs 2000 Miles (now 2 Million Dogs) after her own dog, Princess Daisy, was diagnosed with a heart-based tumor in 2008. Daisy went on to be the first “Cancer Can’t Keep a Good Dog Down” Calendar cover dog in 2009 after she lost her battle to cancer.

Be sure and bookmark the blogs now so you can easily check in on February 5th.  You’ll have plenty of chances to win cool prizes, so stop by one of the participating blogs on February 5 to make a donation.

The Benefit:
