I can’t believe that it’s been over two months since I won the angel category in the Adopt 2012 contest. I’ll never forgot the feeling I felt when I found out that I was one of the winners!! It was an amazing and unforgettable feeling!! When I entered the contest, it was not with the intention of winning (my family and I have never won anything). My sole intention was to share my story hoping that any humans who read it will think twice before they turn away from a lone kitty or doggy on the side of the road and think that it possibly already has a home. That’s what daddy thought when he first saw me, but the truth was that I had just been dumped there a day or so earlier and when he saw me almost two weeks later, I was skin and bones. Thankfully, he saved me and I shared nine wonderful years with him and mommy.
I know this THANK YOU message comes kind of late, but things have been so hectic and crazy, I am just now having a free moment to paw out this message. Daddy found and rescued a 4 month old puppy that someone dumped in the woods three months ago. From what I see and hear from the bridge, he is quite the handful!! They named him Gunner and he is similar in color to me but I heard mommy tell daddy that that puppy will NEVER be the dog I was. BOL!.... I think I will take that as a compliment!!
I wish that EVERY doggy who entered the Adopt 2012 contest could have been named as “winner” but I hope you all know that if you found your forever home, you are a WINNER whether you were named as one in this contest or not.
My THANK YOUs are not in any particular order but the heartfelt feelings behind each is very genuine. I’m also sorry that I do not know how to hyperlink names.
My first THANK YOU goes to all of the judges who had the painstaking job of reading (and re-reading) each and every entry and having to choose the winner(s). I can only imagine how hard and emotional it must have been to narrow down the choices.
THANK YOU to Redford, Bailey, Cotton Plush, Dorothy, Rocky, MJF and Anya for the congratulatory messages.
THANK YOU to countless friends for all the congratulatory pmails.
THANK YOU to MJF and Redford for the pawsome personalized pictures commemorating my special recognition.
THANK YOU to Dogster, Murphy, River, Rigby, Trixie Bean, Flecken /The Weiner Dog Gang and Rudy Patudy (in honor of his angel sibling Patch) for the zealie gifts. They were very appreciated and I will make sure to put them to good use.
THANK YOU to Flicka, Louis and Cleo for the Donation to Best Friends Animal Society. THANK YOU to Snoop Dog Beagleys Group, Rocky, Gibbon and Mia for the donations to the charity of my choice (which by the way also went to Best Friends Animal Society).
THANK YOU to Alice for the Petco gift card and to Dogster for the PetSmart gift certificate and poop bag dispenser. I haven’t decided what to use them on yet but I promise they will be put to good use.
THANK YOU to Ama Bahama for the “Opt to Adopt” lanyard….. Mommy wears it around her neck to carry her cat sitting client keys on and it makes her feel close to me when she wears it.
THANK YOU to Dogster, Georgie, Jackson, Bailey and Shiloh for the Forever Stars.
I would also like to take this time to say THANK YOU to other friends who recognized some other special dates in August…..YES!!….AUGUST 2012 was an extremely exciting month for me! Not only did I win the angel category in the Adopt 2012 contest, but the 19th was my birthday PLUS in the same month I was also chosen as Dogsters Dog of the Day AND Dogsters Diary of the Day!! So for those special occasions, I would like to also say THANK YOU to: Redford and Family, Chiquito, Howard, Dorothy and Family, Trudy and Family, Sarge and Family, Sassy Girl and Dallas, Walker and Family, Tony and Family, MJF and Family, Rocky and Autumn, Cosmo, Onyx, Checkers and Family, Nala Sue and Family, Lexi and Family, Sammy Jo and Family, Scarlett and Family, Charlie and Family, Tinkerbelle and Family, Georgie Girl and Family.
Thank you to each and every one of you for sharing in my (and my mommy’s) joy and helping me celebrate some very special occasions.
With love and puppy kisses from the bridge…..
PS…..I hope I haven’t left anyone out, please let me know if I did so I can add your name.
