This bridge used to be the former L&N Railroad Bridge between Newport,Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio, but it was reopened as a pedestrianwalkway. The "Purple People Bridge," the longest connector of its kindin the country that links two states, is 2,670 feet, or just over ahalf a mile long, and has been redesigned to provide an easy way forpeople (and dogs!) to move between the two statesBy the way, the more sedate name for the bridge is the NewportSouthbank Bridge.

This is absolutely wonderful!!!! Thank you for doing this! I lost my Hooper 2 years ago this May to Cancer and now have found out my Finney is fighting Lymphoma. He is undergoing chemotherapy which we did not get a chance to do with Hooper as his diagnosis was post mortum. I have found web site after web site of testimony and science but need to do something with my self and Finn. Thanks so much for this. You are an inspiration. Will try to get out to meet you some where on the trip.
Susan, Finn, Cobbie, Corkin

Met you and the boys in Wilmington, Ohio, today. You'll get a little additional photo coverage on my 365 Photo blog at Look for the post dated March 25, 2009. Best of luck to you. We have lost several dear family pets to cancer through the years, our young grandson had to say goodbye to his own Great Pyrennes last year and my husband has recently completed treatment for colorectal cancer so your cause touched our hearts on many levels.
