It's Official - It's Arkansas

It's official - Luke and The Boys have crossed over into Arkansas!!! For the next two nights, they'll be happily camped out in a hotel (let's hear it for air conditioning and running water) on the Arkansas side of Texarkana. Not only will they be resting up before the next stage of their long journey begins, but they'll also be spending some time acquainting themselves with the area and the many supporters of the 2 Dogs 2000 Miles mission who are there.

Speaking of supporters, approximately 40 of them showed up today to partake in the festivities. Each and every one of them shared their Texas-sized, heart-felt hospitality and for that, we'll all be eternally grateful. The miles just seem to slip away faster when you know that there are so many folks sharing the journey, if only in spirit. And, of course, we'll have more on the border crossing , including pictures, soon.

One of the canine guests of the day was a sweetheart of a furry girl who had recently had cancer surgery. Talk about "puppying up!" The local gossip columns are likely to report tomorrow that hotty-Hudson could be seen shamelessly flirting with ALL of the ladies - both the two-legged and four-legged varieties. Hudson seems to have quite a fan club of his own.

Now that they've moved further on down the trail, work continues to help find Murphy a new temporary foster home while he recuperates. We'll keep you updated on the situation.

As the sun sets on another day and a new state for our traveling trio, please keep them in your thoughts as they start off on this next chapter in their adventure. We hope it's filled with fond memories and the absolute best of health for all of them.

puppy up!
