Unlikely Animal Friends - Second Place Finish!!!

First of all, I just want to thank ALL of you who voted and helped ME & My Piggies in the Unlikely Animal Friends Contest!!!

I can't tell you how many people with Facebook accounts shared and cross posted to others' accounts or online yahoo groups, and they in turn shared and cross posted too! I also know people that didn't have Facebook accounts sent out mass e-mails with the voting link to their friends should they have Facebook accounts. Cesar Milan also put my link in his newsletter and on his wall, so I now have a bunch of fans that talk to me in EspaƱol (thank you google translator!!). I feel so fortunate to have people from all over the world supporting me. We managed to close the gap between me and the first place contestants (from 800 votes down to 500) on that last day of voting, and we are extremely pleased with our second place finish out of thousands that entered!! Thank you to Judy, our Facebook friend for letting us know and urging us to enter in this contest. We were able to submit our entry last minute! Both mum and I have made so many new friends, well, new fans for ME, and I have made so many people smile, so we couldn't be happier!

Here are the links to the 1st & 3rd place contestants, check out their videos of special friendship:

Last but not least, The SuperDALE has her own Facebook page now, come check it out!! If you have a Facebook account, you can "Like" me, if you don't, you can still read everything that's on there! Just a note, some of the things I post on the blog will be there, some won't, some of the quickies I post on my Facebook page won't be on the blog. You get the idea :-)

(mum: Thank you all for voting!! The contest was fun, but I think the over-arching message, behind all these incredible stories is what will make the biggest impact on people. People will hopefully walk away inspired, or be more open to see and appreciate things that defy what we believe is the norm, and in some cases, change the preconceived notions they have on certain breeds.)
