I really wanted to stay home. It's cold here and most of St. Cloud is the color gray with dirty snow and sad March skies...but what warm people. Tim & I are hunkered down in our hotel room in MN tonite after spending the day yakking up pit bull adoptions with a kind crowd of shelter workers and rescue groups. Networking is always the best part of conferences: We had the good fortune of hanging out with the smart (and beautiful) gals from A Rotta Love Plus and enjoyed dinner with pit bull celeb Roo tonite, who is owned the by the Disk Maniac Wallace
Okay, maybe the cold weather's not so hard to take after all.
The best news of the day: Our hosts, Minnesota Tri-County Humane Society, announced today that they're ready to put ambassadog pit bulls up for adoption. Tim's been talking with these good folks since his presentation last year piqued their interest in giving the bullpups a try. This news is gratifying, to say the least. Rachel and her crew from A Rotta Love helped us select a few dogs to evaluate in front of the crowd today. And while we hate putting dogs on the spot in front of 200 watchful eyes, the pay-off was that two did so well that they earned their way into two new adoption program. Huzzah!
This video shows a glimpse of a little brown monkey faced DARLING who will soon be Tri-County's first breed ambassadog. She tested beautifully: Warmly connected, cheerful, highly motivated to please and allllll about people. We wish her and her advocates well ... They have important work to do and we know that they'll be brilliant. Monkey Girl Kennel Clip
If you live in MN and are starting to think about adding a love machine to your family, pls check out Tri-County Humane MN (and don't tell'em I said so, but if you like designing websites, I bet these guys would love some help with a major website make-over to showcase their animals).
We fly to WI tomorrow ... Where I'm guessing it's still cold.
