Whew!!!! WOW!!! and Ohhhh my gosh!!!!
"All of you reading these words have loved someone, have done someone a kindness,
have healed a wound, have taken on a challenge, have created something beautiful,
and have enjoyed breathing the air of existence.
Every moment you make a difference.
-Random Acts of Kindness

All day, my phone has been ringing off the hook, I have been checking my computer, bringing dogs to the vet, picking up dogs from my fosters, getting everything ready to transport and now I am going to try to get a few hours of shut eye..

I am not sure how this contest is going to pan out, but please don't give up:)
We still have time to spread the word..

I believe in meant to be things, so even if we don't get the prize money I'm pretty confident we'll figure something else out..
My heart is telling me that this is the year the shelter will be built..
You all have amazed me, this contest has amazed me!!!

If anything has come out of this, it has shown me the power of a cause.
That people are passionate about life, animals, causes and friendships.
If we don't win, I have won, no matter what. These moments will be forever remembered.
This contest has brought together the rescues that have been competing, for the better.
I have made friends with "Saving Georgia Dogs" and that is a wonderful thing for the animals!!!
My heart is so full of joy, I cannot even begin to put into words my amazement in all of you..
The networking, the outpour of support and the wonderful, wonderful people who make a difference in this life..

It kinda feel like David and Goliath:) We have done amazing, just being a tiny rescue, composed of Jeff, Terry & I.

In dog news: I took 12 dogs out of the shelter yesterday and 3 today, they won't be ready to go till the end of February, but gosh are they every precious!! Will post pictures when I get back..

Need some sleep, I have to get up in just a few hours..
Then on the road with all the doggies and one kitten:) 8-10 hours depending how many times they have to go potty..

I just want to put this out there, since I know all the other charities are checking out each other..
I wish you all the BEST!!! And may the powers that be, support all the good deeds, each and every charity does...

Bernie you are so amazing!!! This competition really could have brought out ugly attitudes and behaviors but your love, generosity and thoughtfulness have stayed true and strong!

The competition is so close I don't think it will matter who is in the unoffical top four. We'll only know the winners when they do an official count.

Keep on donating everyone. It's hardly over yet!!!

If you need extra incentive I'm holding a $200 raffle for each unique entry. THe details are on my blog:

Bernie, you're so wonderful. I KNOW we can win this for you!
I've already donated... but I've been spreading the word through e-mails and I just re-posted to both of my blogs.

We are SO close. I hope we can do this for you and the animals!!!

Folks... if you twitter or use forums of any kind, please link to A Place to Bark!!!

We can do this!!!
fingers crossed,,,,,,,,!!!!
I have a lady just like you here in my street in England, she rescues everything and is 70 years old - you and she are special people.
I was glad to make my donation to your cause and I hope that your dreams for your shelter come true. My dear neighbour works out of a garage and woodland that she owns to the back of her house - but as she says if an animal needs shelter she will find space and I can see that you do what you can for the dogs (and cats) who end up with you.
Take care and keep up the good work
This was such a beautiful, thoughtful post. You have such a huge heart. May all the love and good you do come back to you!

Thanks so much for all you do for the precious animals. You're an angel.
Love the picture of you getting a huge kiss. Such a great image of what you do - a happy dog giving you a big thanks!!!
