In The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning

Posted by Erich Trapp on August 6, 2013

"In the wee small hours of the morning, When the whole wide world is fast asleep ..."

“In the wee small hours of the morning, While the whole wide world is fast asleep …”

In the wee small hours of the morning, that’s the time we miss them most of all.”

Our latest totals as of Tuesday, August 6. Yes, in the wee small hours of the morning, 4:00 AM CDT.

Please bookmark our blog. Keep in mind totals can change rapidly as we move into the final days. This year’s contest ends Thursday, August 8 at 12:00 Midnight EDT. Please plan accordingly. I’ll be posting totals again tomorrow and, of course, Thursday throughout the day.

If you need to make an off-line donation (a check from a friend or cash), please email me (erich@2milliondogs.org) and let me know. I can make the donation for you. But these donations HAVE to clear before we can mark them paid and applied to your dog’s votes.

Good Luck to everyone and Puppy Up! And remember, whether your pup wins or not, he or she will appear in the calendar in the “Gallery Of Dogs” pages. No one gets left behind.

VOTE HERE.

Proceeds from tickets will be donated to 2 Million Dogs!

Does your faithful companion (no, not your spouse, your dog) sit on the couch and watch endless hours of sports with you? Does your pup share your passion for basketball, popcorn, and hotdogs? Well then, what better way to reward your pup than to take him or her to a REAL game. Get up off that couch, go order your tickets online (see below), grab your best friend’s leash, and go see the San Antonio Silver Stars and The Tulsa Shock in action!

Yes, you can really take your dog. (Or, if the dog is better behaved, your dog can take you.)

When? This Sunday, August 4.

And the best part? (Well, besides taking your best friend and the hotdogs?) Proceeds from tickets will be donated to 2 Million Dogs!

 

How to Order Online: 5 Easy Steps

4. Select seat location
5. Print tickets at home (No Ticketmaster Fees)

Now, got fetch some tickets and have some fun! (Oh, and don’t eat too many hotdogs.)
