contest update… 150+ lost dogs on their way!

a beautiful message from Francis Battista, Best Friends

The REAL comeback story — Mel, the sweet pit bull, read the story and watch the video too… something happened to the original link at the dallas news…

If you have already sent a copy of the Lost Dogs book by Jim Gorant to the White House or have called the White House and asked them to read the book,  just send me your email address and you are entered into the contest and can win a prize. My way of saying thank you for caring and participating in this important BadRap literacy project !!!

There is still time… it might also be wise when you call/write to let Obama know that you voted for him (if you did). thanks !

And thanks to those of you who have already emailed me with your messages, pls send photos of your dog(s) too, if you can.

and thanks to Jacki who mentioned she hoped to see media coverage about this. You can help ! Send a letter to the editor of your local newspaper, usually max. 200 words, and tell them all about the project and why you sent the book.  let me know you did, and you will get an extra special surprise.

here is the press release that I sent out yesterday with links included to mel’s story, badrap’s post, best friends and my contest link:

Here they are:

“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” said Mahatma Gandhi

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has,” said Margaret Mead.

here is the blog hop link, hope am doing this right…

  1. Best travel companion is a dog. My dog does not ask, “Are we there yet?” every five minutes. He does not say, “I have to pee, can we stop now?”. And when we stop, he doesn’t say, “I don’t have to go now.” He doesn’t say, “I’m thirsty”, five minutes after we stopped to pee, where there was water available in the fountain. He does not fight with his sister, and scream at the top of his lungs. He sits there quietly, looking out the window at the cars passing by. He licks my face occasionally to ensure I stay awake. He happily jumps out of the car at the rest stop, has a pee, a drink of water and is ready to leave again as soon as I am. What a joy, “To travel with my dog!”

    • lucky you, not all dogs are that easy to travel with… some polka dot princesses who shall remain nameless (cici) expects their door to be opened for them, their water fetched and at the rest stop, either she is too busy trying to chase squirrels, lick people’s feet, show off her belly, does not want to go, or spends too much time looking for just the right spot, and does not want to get back in the car. oh, what a joy, it is to drive miss cici around.

    I e-mailed the White House and opted for the first family and asked them to read the Lost Dogs to get a new perspective on Vick and other animal/human abusers and whether or not they deserve any kind of praise ever.
