Over the past few days many of you visited the Best Friends Photo Contest website and voted on a brand new photo of 14 year old GREYHOUNDS cover boy Slim for People’s Choice. It was a VERY close race and those of your who were following know that Slim was in 1st place for a good portion of the day yesterday! Late in the evening we ended up in 2nd place, but we are so thankful to everyone who took the time to participate!
Slim also would like to thank everyone who voted for him and his little IG friends. He congratulates Lisha Platta and her photo of the happy brown dog for a great competition. In the end he is really the winner no matter what… He had a good racing career, he has wonderful sister greyhound companions and a nurturing home where he has been happy for almost 10 years. All he wanted was for lots of people to see his picture in order to raise awareness for all the greyhounds who are currently about to be in need of homes when the Dairyland Park Racetrack closes 12/31/09. Slim wishes them the best and hopes that some of the people who have looked at his beautiful 14 year old continence surrounded by the vibrant IG pups will consider adopting a greyhound as a lifelong companion. If not now, then in the future.
Happy Slimmaversary, 10 years…
How lucky are Barbara, Turtle, Fancy, Easton (somewhere with a knowing smile) and Slim on 12/27/09.
