DoggoneDirty Team - WOW!
Ashley & All the D.G.D. Team.....
You have touched so many lives this weekend you will never know.
The stories that were shared this event were more meaningful than I have ever experienced.
There was a man there w/his wife and his dog who in the last year was battling liver cancer. He had to wait and go through a transplant and so much more. The chances of him living were nonexistent but he kept his dog next to his side the ENTIRE time. His loyal bud kept the faith during all the hard days and nights. During his time of illness he watched the Dock Diving on TV and did nothing but keep his spirit alive by wanting to see & go to an Splash Dog event w/his deserving companion.
Yesterday they arrived for the first time. They considered it a magical time that made that man so unbelievely satisfied that he made it to our event.
That is just a behind the scenes affect of your efforts. The obvious is our Coats for Kids. I hope that we made the 250 goal, and if we did not everyone should know that Coats for Kids continues ALL Holiday Season. It only gets colder out there folks.
Thanks DoggoneDirty Team for all the midnight hours to fill the pool, the smiles and positive energy you kept with you to pull it off.
I would call it a COMPLETE Success and quickly confirm to us that 2010 will be the 2nd Annual..........Will keep our fingers crossed.! So many new Splash Dog members joining aboard, and 1 perfect choc. puppy named Lady that needs to make her mark there too!
Take care, and thanks for all that your team accomplished.
