Mom does the Race for the CURE

Today was the Race for the Cure in Des Moines, Iowa.  We almost beat the record of New York, We had over 23,500 folks walking or running !  Here's some pictures. Yes, after I finished the boys got a long long walk, pictures tomorrow of them!

Everyone got balloons. I had two different ones but couldn't keep ahold of them. Let me know if you see my purple or pink balloon flying over your houses! 
Pink Cement? 
The Boys could have fun going to dog shows in one of these.
People everywhere! It was only 40 degrees but it got warmer.  
A Pink Crane! 
Here we are on the state capital steps for our survivor picture.  
Another shot 
Here's everyone taking pictures of the Survivors!!! 
Here I am with my friend, Ellen, a 6 year survivor, I'm a 11 year survivor!

Very cool! Congrats on 11 years cancer free. Wow. My mom's friend, Julie's mom, died of breast cancer when Julie was just a kid. Her sister also had breast cancer and this year is 5 years free. They did the 3 day walk and it was really cool to see their pics. Congrats again.

Hugs Kodak and Kathy

Tail wags,


Woof, Thor, Marco Polo and 3 Kats,

Woo-woo!!! Tell you Mom congratulations for being an 11 year survivor. That's so pawsome. Our Mom does the walk here in Tucson. We keep telling her to take us with her but she always says no(actually she always says there's no chance in hell that she's gonna take four crazy dogs to the Race for the Cure).

YAY for survivors and your Mom! Mom's nephew does the Boston Marathon for Susan B Komen! Mom is very proud to sponsor him every year!

oh wow! what a nice thing to do. it is a shame the woofies couldnt join you. woofies and kitties get cancer too, and the exercise would be fun with all the pets they would get.

i'm glad you broke records with your walk!

Do Marco Polo and Thor wear pink bandannas? Wilbur says real men wear pink, although I have yet to try it. (Wilbur used to have a pink name tag.)
