Boy, I think this has been one of the toughest events we have had all year long. So tough in fact, in the end neither myself or my unbiased supporters could agree on just one person!
I received many nominations for all deserving members. I think the reason it was so tough is because each member who visits this board and helps another is already an EBN Hero! Each person nominated was chosen for many different reasons. Maybe they helped with rescue, fostered bulldogs, help with questions more than any other, and so many more reasons. Each member who was nominated is so selfless, always wanting to help in ways that many of us only wish we could.
The first English Bulldog Hero award goes to Twice. Her journey with Abby was a special journey. She took everything she learned about nutrition from her and brought it here. Their story has so much happiness, and so much sorrow. When Abby went to Rainbow Bridge, I don't think there was a dry eye here, because we all grew to love her and her journey. Twice took what Abby taught her a step further and went to school to become a canine nutritionalist. She also opened her heart and home to rescue bulldogs when she became a volunteer for Mid Atlantic Bulldog Rescue. Twice is, without a doubt, an EBN Hero to us all.
Beverly, aka "Twice", you are our Heroine!
Here is what a couple members had to say about Twice:
David, aka "davidh", you are our Hero!
Here is what a few members had to say about Davidh:
For many reasons, but the few that stand out are...
1. His love for Bully's go far beyond his own. He has healed broken hearts and sad souls by matching up wonderful Bully's that need forever homes with Wonderful people needing these special Bully's.
He does it silently, without anyone knowing...for the Bully's and those that love them.
2. He is always ready to help advise new members and old. Never a negative word..Just for the Bully's and those that love them.
3. He's a fireman...and I love Firemen!
David as I see him is always there to offer help and advice and to find a home for a Bullie in need, also members of ebn when they need a bit of help he is always by with it.
