The 2 Million Dogs organization is running a search for their 2015 calendar. Anyone can enter their pup, but the deadline is coming up fast on July 15th. The fee is $10 and counts as an automatic 10 votes for your entry. Additional votes are $1 each.
Voting continues through August 10th, so if you want to cast a vote, take a look at the entrants, read their stories and consider voting for a few of your favorites. The money raised will go towards canine cancer research.
I first learned about 2 Million Dogs a few years ago and participated in one of their “Puppy Up” walks here in Seattle, but they organized all around the country. You can find out more about the organization here, including information on upcoming walks.
With cancer taking the lives of so many dogs each year, I think it is important to contribute to finding ways to cure or palliate its effects. In the years since Porter had cancer, so many advances have been made that have extended the quality of life for so many dogs already. If you go back through my blog, you’ll see many of these posts. Hopefully, it is just a matter of time before we no longer have to fear the dreaded announcement of a cancer diagnosis.
