Friends this contest ends TONIGHT (11:59 pm Pacific time).

This is our last chance to help get $1000 for Fox Terrier Rescue.

As some of you may already know, Christine Downs, from the Wirefoxterrier list has entered her WFT, Dean-O in an online contest to win $1000.

Christine and Dean-O hope to win the $1000 with your help and donate it to the Fox Terrier Rescue.

Now the hard part. The website, seems to make people jump through hoops to vote.

Go to the site at and register you and your pet.

Submit a profile and a picture of your pet for the profile to be able to vote. (We know not everyone has a digital camera to do this, so I suggest that you save a picture from the web of a dog like yours) and save that to the profile). Remember to do this for all your animals, cats, dogs, etc.!

If you go to the website and click on MY ACCOUNT at the top of the page it should come up with a BIG grey box in the middle of the page. It has a check off section that tells you what steps you need to complete. It will show a green check once it is completed and a red x when it has not been completed. Part of what it says is :

-Edit your profile and upload at least one photo
-Add at least one pet to your kennel with a photo

Both of these must have a green check next to them to be able to cast a vote. If they don't follow the link. I still had to add a pet to my kennel to get to vote.

· Just as a note, you do NOT have to invite 5 friends to join to be able to vote!

Now you can vote for Dean-O! To do this go to and scroll down to “ Communicate With Kingaire’s Rosedale Valley Boy” in that list it says "cast your vote".

You are able to cast 3 votes per week, but only one per dog. So your vote REALLY, REALLY counts.

Like I said, we know that this site really puts you through the ringer to be able to vote, but the money will go to a worthy cause!

If you have any questions, you can email Christine at This has been posted tot he wirefoxterrier list on yahoo and the FTN list on yahoo. Christine has given permission to crosspost or forward this info to others you may know who will help.
