So it has been about a month since Sophie has passed. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about her. I miss her like crazy. I am in the process of adopting a new little friend so I can use all the information Sophie has taught me and give all of the love and kisses and cuddles that I have left for Sophie to another deserving dog. She really has taught me so much.

I was thinking about ways I can honor her and pay it forward; something I can do to continue being an advocate without having a little one to advocate for. I decided to run a half marathon in order to raise funds for the National Canine Cancer Foundation. My best friend/roommate, Teasha and our friend Amy will be running and fundraising as well. We are combining efforts in order to raise $5,000. The race, The St. Luke’s Half Marathon in Allentown, PA, is on April 28th. If you would like to donate, and I hope you do, please visit our donation page. 100% of your donation will go to NCCF in hopes that it will help fund research to find better treatment options and a cure.
