Default Uhm.... wow....

I just got a call from Animal Planet - apparently I am one of the 10 finalists for their Hero of the Year award. *blink*

I don't even have any words......

Hmmm. Looks like the cards and letters may have had some effect.

Could it be that the ACOFunStop crowd offered a little pay back for all the wonderful things you have done to improve the lives of pets all over the country? Could it be that you devote so much of your personal time and finance this mostly on your own? Could it be that you really DO make a difference EVERY day?

Nahhhh.

Its that cool Bronx attitude that helps you kick butt and take names when it comes to those who abuse animals.

But then again, maybe I'm biased.

You're too sweet, M-Dawg. There are plenty of people who deserve it as much or more than I do.

BTW - I got your email.... not ignoring you. I just got the 'net hooked up at home yesterday, and my house is still a pile of boxes (movers finally showed yesterday too.) All of your requests are do-able and I'll attend to them within the next day or so. And yes, regarding NACA 2007.

Oh, and I finally got to read the Animal Sheltering article - THANK YOU!! (And you two, Liam!!) That article came out so nice, I was just blown away!

You don't realize the impact that you have had Alison. If you could see what we see, you would say to yourself " how the hell dose she do all that stuff?!?". There are sooooo many of us that are unsung heros. that take those few extra mins to make a differance. It's nice that we can final give credit to someone that really deserves it. And you really do.

I'm just waiting to post on another of my favorite forums until the voting starts. Every one should know about this.

Congrats on the nomination. It is a very much deserved honor.
