Woot We won!!! Ahem I mean Patachou won!!! LOL

Another edit lol: Just had to add the card that Dory sent to the Houston SPCA

Edit: decided to use the pic that Dory used officially to show his win :)

Wooohoooo. Patachou got 1st place on Dory's Smiley fest 2009. I'm soooo excited. Thank you everyone for voting for my very special boy. I miss him sooo much and love that his smile won so many hearts too. I've asked Dory's Mama to send the donation to the Houston SPCA. I got Nanuchy, my 14 yr old terrorX who is almost completely blind and deaf and in kidney failure from there when she was only 8 weeks old! And Dory's Mama even upped the prize to $40 donation, isn't that just wonderful!!!!

This was such a fun contest and for a wonderful cause. And congrats to the other winners too. So many totally awesome smileys and the competition was very tough!!!!

Thanks again to everyone!!!

I sure hope Patachou has met mom's rottie, Bella, who went to the rainbow bridge about 7 years ago. I just know they will be having a splendid time together!
