[EXTERNAL] My dog, Pluto -- in a contest! Hello! We are down to the final days of voting with the contest wrapping up on June 30th. Help us pull ahead of our Michigan competitor to bring home the win for Fort Worth, Texas! Thank you.Press ReleaseFort Worth Dog Runs For Humane Society Beds AwardFort Worth, TX (June 25) — Not long after North Richland Hills residents Victoria and Hunter Nelson arrived to take new jobs in the Fort Worth area in 2014, the newlyweds bought a new home and began to acquire furnishings.But it was all too perfect.Something was sorely missing: Barking, veterinary bills, misbehavior, chewed furniture legs and occasional accidents on new, deep pile rugs, for example.To fill the void, they made the next move to adopt a stray black mixed breed pup from the nearby Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT). The Humane Society had found the puppy only days earlier, roaming the streets of Fort Worth, scared and hungry.It was love at first sight. And out of pity for the demoted planet Pluto and love of the Disney character, Victoria and Hunter named their new family member accordingly.Moved by the adoption experience, Victoria soon enough signed up to volunteer at HSNT. She didn’t need the Hubble Space Telescope to see the need for responsible rescue, quality temporary care and placement for animals that the organization provides to North Texans.Today, Pluto brings joy to the Nelson home, whether he’s awake or not. By day, noise from the refrigerator ice maker beckons Pluto for a favorite but rather odd snack, an ice cube or two he chews to pieces within seconds. By night, or whenever he’s sleeping which is often throughout the day, Pluto dreams, snorting, barking or kicking unconsciously in his slumber.It’s only natural that the subject of sleep motivated Pluto to track down the local Keller location of HSNT on the final leg of his June campaign trail to win the election for Dog of the Month as awarded by national pet bed manufacturer, Kuranda.Victoria shares that, while still subject to further
