Thank You

WOW! Its been a busy and exciting day today.
Thank you all who helped to push this effort through the right channels. Before all of you got involved we where hitting dead ends and starting to lose hope of adopting Lex. With your help we went beyond the local level and got the information in the right hands.

Thank you John Burnam for you knowledge of MWD laws and many phone calls and interviews. Your letter written from the perspective of Lex was wonderful and a needed addition to our cause. We would not have gotten the story to Congressman Jones without your help.

Thank you Kelly and Ricky Hooker of Discover Canine for your help networking, your compassion for Lex and the Lee family and your professional adivce on MWDS.

Thank You Congressman Jones for your steadfast conviction to helping us accomplish our goal of adopting Lex. We could not have done it with out you. You never gave up the fight and pushed back at times when we could not.
Thank you so much for representing Lex, Dustin, and the Lee family in this effort. North Carolina is lucky to have an elected official such as yourself.

I would also like to give a large Thank You to everyone who signed the petition. All of your names made our case so much stronger.

Thank you MCLB Albany for doing the right thing. Semper Fi

As suggested in a comment on the blog, I too strongly suggest that
everyone send Congressman Jones of NC a wonderful Thank You Letter.

His address is:
Congressman Walter B. Jones
2333 Rayburn, HOB
Washington, DC 20515-3303
