But due to some WONDERFUL WONDERFUL friends- who dedicated a lot of time to supporting Jasmine.... we did it! She finished in spot #4! Wow- that was a close race!!
And I'm just so thrilled!!! And overwhelmed with gratitude!!!
I had friends voting from the hospital, before/after school, all during the day, and night. I had friends having contests who could vote the most for Jaz! I had friends who still voted for Jaz even though their lives were full of hard times.) (and I tried to talk them out of voting- but they said it was a good distraction.) And the last night of the contest- when the #'s were SOOO close, I even had 2 friends that stayed up- and pulled an all-nighter voting for Jaz. Wow. All I can say is wow.
Because of all of you, I feel so loved. And am so grateful for all you've done. Every night when I was voting, and the votes kept jumping up... it was so cool.... knowing someone else was out there voting for Jaz at the same time as me! I can't thank you enough!!!
Today, I got an email from the magazine. They're having a meet & greet at the end of the month for the Top 5 Dogs- and then the judges will decide who the main winner is. So.... wish us luck!! (The main winner gets some other prizes too.) But I'm mainly interested in the editorial spread in the magazine! The other stuff... is just stuff! I'll probably have to end up donating it- so I don't have to pay taxes on it!! (I learned that lesson when I won the Mighty Dog contest!!)
Well my friends- I don't know how else I can express how grateful I am for all of you- and how supportive you are of me and Jasmine. You guys rock. That's all I can say. =)
