His nonprofit organization 2 Million Dogs is advocating for what he calls comparative oncology studies to examine whether there is a link between cancer in canines and cancer in humans.

Robinson points out that pets are exposed to the same environmental factors as humans. Veterinary oncologists believe there are between four and eight million new cases of cancer in pets every year.

Robinson has helped create what his organizations says is the largest "pet and people cancer community in the world."

He is touring 25 cities to share information with other pet owners. He is in Denver this week at the following locations:

Saturday, Sept. 22 in Arvada, they'll be at Street's Fitness from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at 12520 W. 64th Ave.

Sunday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., The Boys will be at the Barkly Manor Doggie Daycare, 5010 E. Colfax Ave.

Monday, Sept. 24 at 6:30 p.m., they'll be at Woof in Boots, 719 W. 8th Ave.
