1. Congratulations! Luke, Hudson and Murphy went to Pups On Parade Friday night in Richmond, VA (they drove) to the benefit for Fetch A Cure. (They're doing important work in cancer care and treatment. Please check out their website here: Joann Silverman, Director of Fetch a Cure, had a birthday cake for Murphy donated by Michele Lynett. Murphy loved the cake! And Luke was awarded the 2010 Humanitarian Award! They made it back in Rhode Island in their little rented Kia Soul. Luke said the Fuzzybutts fit in it just fine!

3. Can You Help? Can you help a beautiful sheltie/husky mix named Sox? She has a lump on her thigh/hip area that has been diagnosed as Mast Cell tumor grade 1. She is friendly and sweet. She has very good chance to be cancer free after tumor removal. She is guessed to be about three years old. She weighs 35 lbs.

4. In The News – Luke and The Boys are in the news:

Luke is on BARK Radio “Luke Robinson and his two Great Pyrenees, Murphy and Hudson, are very nearly finished with their 2,400 mile walk from Austin to Boston. Terry and Dee talked with Luke recently about the The Boys, the Boston celebration including the Puppy Up! Festival, a new comparative oncology study, 2 Million Dogs, and much, much more.

Also please check out the great article on The Boys posted on the Halo Pets blog:

5. Canine Health Foundation News Alert Blog --

The Canine Health Foundation is pleased to announce the publication of the final video recorded at the 2009 National Parent Club Canine Health Conference held in St. Louis. The October conference, sponsored by Nestlé Purina PetCare Company, brought together leading researchers and representatives from national breed clubs to discuss the current state of canine health research, and where the future will lead. The video released is Dr. Matthew Breen, "Canine Cancer & Comparative Genomics: New Technologies, New Opportunities."

We will continue to post important videos and articles on the blog.

6. Volunteers Needed -- We need volunteers to help with the Puppy Up! Festival. Volunteers needed from 8am-4pm for the Festival, setup and tear down. We have 2 hour shifts available so you can still enjoy the day with your dog. Contact Sheila at

7. Can Anyone Trade Rooms in Boston? Patty Gartmann writes: I originally had our reservations at the Fairmont for a King bed room. However, I am rooming with a girl friend. We would prefer to have a room with two beds. I called the hotel and asked that they put on my paper that we prefer room with two beds but she cannot guarantee that will work out as our block of rooms is all booked up.

If someone has a room booked at the Fairmont with two beds and would prefer the king bed, we could swap. I would need their confirmation number and I will call the hotel for us. Thanks. Patty Gartmann Please contact Patty at her email address if you can help. Thanks!

8. Condolences – We send our sincere condolences to Dianne Sihksnel who just recently lost her dog Monet Larue. Monet will be one of hundreds on Memorial Shirt 6.

And deepest condolences to our good friend and volunteer Beverly Alba, who lost her greyhound to osteosarcoma.

Don’t forget those deadlines TODAY!

Puppy Up!
