I LOVE LIL MOE!
This article was in the Bozeman Chronicle. This little guy and his owners are amazing! Great job-I will be voting for Moe!
Bozeman's favorite skateboarding bulldog is putting his celebrity to use.
While he boards around parking lots, owners Keri Nelson and Dan Yarnell get a change to talk to people who stop to take a look. "I kept thinking, 'We should be doing more, we should be doing more," Nelson said.
So Nelson and Yarnell changed their tactics, talking with other pet owners about the importance of spaying and neutering and the work of shelters with no-kill policies. Then, they designed a Lil Moe sticker, with proceeds going to the local shelter, Heart of the Valley. Lil Moe made an appearance at the Heart of the Valley's open house and plans to be at kids' camps and Woofstock.
"(The outreach is" fresh and new, but there's definitely more to com," Nelson said.
Most recently, Lil Moe has teamed up with a doggie friend, Charity, as Bullies against Bullying, another cause nelson said is important.
Due to his efforts, Lil Moe is nominated as an Emerging Hero Dog for the 2012 American Human Association Hero Dog Awards (www.herodogawards.org). Online voting is open through June.
