We are now into the second week of the Dreaming of Three 2019 pet calendar contest, and I am overjoyed at the support we’ve received over the past two weeks. As of Saturday evening, through your entries and votes, we have raised $747, nearly doubling what we started with last week. Along with Dreaming of Three, I thank you for giving so generously to this incredible organization so that it may continue its Rodeo Kids Program for children fighting heart disease or cancer.
This week brought several new entries to the leaderboard, but it was one furry favorite, Gus, who maintained the lead into Saturday evening. Gus received a big boost from our Friday the 13th voting promotion and added 115 new votes to his entry, making him week-two’s mini-contest winner. He and his dad Robert will receive a personalized pet portrait watercolor from the talented CJ Mueller of CJ Mueller Art. Congratulations, Gus and Robert!
Next week marks the halfway point of the calendar contest! If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll join the fun. Schmoopsie Couture is donating week-three’s mini-contest prize. Its owner, Nancy, is a local dog mom herself who creates he most adorable dog neckties, necklaces, kerchiefs, collars, and leashes, each handmade right here in Pittsburgh. Win something special from Schmoopsie Couture by securing the most new votes by Saturday, Apr. 21 at 9 p.m. EST.
