Dear DeDe

A Sunday Visit with Dear DeDe!

Oh Dog! Is it already Sunday again? My, how time flies!

We were honored to learn this week that this blog is a finalist for the Petties Best Rescue/Cause blog.  What makes it such an honor is that it was your support and nominations that made that happen.  So I want to say thank you. You have no idea how much it means to us knowing that so many of you think that what we’re doing is worthwhile.

The winning blogs in each category will be determined by voting. You can vote for us once daily until July 31st.  

Now I also want to share something very exciting with you– starting July 23rd, DogTime will also accept nominations for the Unsung Hero Award.  This award is for someone who works diligently in the field of animal rescue.  The winner will receive a Petties trophy and a $10,000 donation to his or her rescue of choice.

Now I know that many of you know people who work in the field of animal rescue, and in my mind every one of them is a winner.  I also know every shelter or rescue out there could use a $10,000 donation.  And I know I’m having a hard time deciding who I want to nominate.

So start getting your nominations ready and be watching here or at DogTime for more information!

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  14. Wow – that is just brilliant and greatly deserved. I’ll be voting for you daily. Such a pity they don’t seem to have stuff like this going on in South Africa (boy, could you imagine the difference that would make to the shelters!!).
    Good luck – we are holding thumbs, paws and anything else we can reach for you
