So we entered this contest to be a part of the "Dogs of Blogville" calendar this year. I think Bella's picture is cute and have been pestering all of my friends to go vote for her.
But I'm changing my stance and asking them, and now you, for a different action.
The "Dogs of Blogville" calendar is a fund-raiser hosted by Jodi Stone of "Heart Like a Dog" and Julie Melfi of "The Daily Dog Blog". It's in its second year.
Last year they raised $500 that was donated to "Champion of My Heart" to help defray some of the medical costs associated with Lilly's vaccination issues. (It should be noted that some of the money was set to also go to "Life with Desmond" but Lauren wanted her share of the funds to go to Roxanne and Lilly. You are still my hero, Lauren.)
This year, the money raised from the calendar will be going to "Two French Bulldogs" to help with some of the costs from Benny's cancer treatments.
I really want to see the calendar be a huge success for Benny.
But I saw something today that made me think there was something "rotten in Denmark". Not that there's anything wrong with the contest - it's totally on the up-and-up: you can only vote once per IP address per day so Julie and Jodi did a bang-up job securing the process.
What I noticed though is that, based on the votes as they currently stand, Benny may not even make the calendar being made in his honor. And that's just not right.
So I'd like to ask everybody who reads this to please go over to the "Heart Like a Dog" voting page and register their vote for Benny and Lily. It only takes a minute and you can vote every 24 hours. Recruit your friends.
I'd really love to see Benny on the cover of the calendar and I'm going to campaign hard for them for the next several days the contest runs. Would you help me spread the word?
|You're gonna go vote for Benny now, right?|
