The results of the Mix 96.9 contest were supposed to be announced on July 5th. I was dying of suspense all day long. I had the day off of work (which was good and bad! ) Good- to have a day off to celebrate 4th of July with my family and friends. (and I even made Jaz get in the pool!) =) Bad- because I was thinking about it ALL day long- and was constantly sneaking back inside to check the website. NOTHING. (They took down the main link off their website all-together.) Finally that night, I found an old link that said they would be announcing the results tomorrow (July 6th). So that pacified me for the night! So then this morning the waiting game began again! Around noon, they finally posted the results. It wasn't Jasmine. It was a cute dog named Kona that got the most votes.
To be honest, I was kinda disappointed at first. But then I thought... Oh well! You can't say we didn't give it our best! I had all my friends on DoggySpace, all my friends on YouTube, and all of Jasmine's Facebook fanclub voting. So.... if that wasn't enough votes... well.. oh well! That's all I can do!
And I felt nothing but an outpouring and love and support from all my friends during this contest. Jaz had people voting for her from all over the world!! It's pretty amazing to me that the internet can bring all us dog-lovers together like that. It's a wonderfully supportive network.
I can't thank you enough my friends, for continuing to vote for Jasmine, encourage me, and support both of us through it all. I have wonderfully awesome friends. Some of whom I have never met... just talk with online. But I am so appreciative of how loved and supported you have made me feel. THANK YOU ... you know who you are!!!! =)
If you hear of any other trick contests, please let me know. (Those are more our specialty.)
I'll continue to learn new tricks and post them on my YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/MyFavoritePupJasmine
And the next time another trick contest comes around... we'll be ready! =)
So... I don't regret entering. You never know unless you try, right?? And now I also know what an awesome, supportive built-in network of dog-loving friends I have. =) You guys rock!!!!
