While all Colorado voters receive a ballot in the mail, it is still vitally important to have centrally located Voter Service and Polling Center locations for voters who either need to vote in person with special equipment or simply prefer to cast their ballot in person. Voter Service and Polling Centers are places residents can drop off a mail ballot, cast a ballot in person, request a replacement ballot, register to vote or update registration information, or vote using equipment for persons with disabilities. The Colorado County Clerks Association will grant 4 regional one-time awards in the amount of $1,000 to seniors graduating from Colorado high schools to further their education at any university, college, junior college or technical institution. Financial aid awarded by the association will be remitted to the institution of attendance and will be credited to the student's account. Each district will select a finalist and forward their selection to the Executive Board by April 24, 2015. Any legal, permanent resident of Boulder County enrolled in, or applying to, a vocational training program or institution of higher learning in the State of Colorado as a full, or part-time student is eligible to apply. Scholarship announcements have been mailed to all high school offices in the eligible counties, and to all Colorado higher education institutions. To finalize the election, as stated by law, the Boulder County Clerk prepared and made available to the public a statement of the total number of votes cast in the election for each candidate and for and against each ballot issue. Last week, Clerk Hall received word that the Secretary of State’s office accepted the official statewide abstract of votes cast for state races and issues.
Although some have raised questions about the effect of the canvass board’s prior decision not to certify, Clerk Hall says the election results stand. Because the margin of victory was so large in all of the races and ballot issues involved, no recount was triggered or requested.
Composition of the canvass board: The canvass board is composed of two members from each of the “major” political parties plus the Clerk.
2014 Canvass Board Vote: This year, the canvass board signed off on the election audit, which tests the election’s vote tallying systems and processes to ensure accuracy, but in a 4-to-3 decision voted to not certify the election results.
Earlier this week, elections staff completed the 2014 election audit, a post-election quality assurance test that ensures the accuracy of the machine tally of votes.
Despite the fact that there were no documented discrepancies found in the audit or reconciliation that impacted the outcome of any contest, the Boulder County Canvass Board voted in a 4-to-3 decision to not certify the election. In regard to these actions, Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall had the following to say, “The Canvass Board’s decision not to certify is purely political, without basis and out of line with their role as defined by Colorado law. Hall continued, “The election judges and our staff did an outstanding job conducting the 2014 General Election. By Secretary of State Rule, if nothing found in the audit or reconciliation of the election impacts the outcome of the election, the results must be certified.
The Canvass Report, Statement of Vote and audit documentation is now available at BoulderCountyVotes.org. The server upgrade will enhance maintenance and support of the Colorado State Titling and Registration system, which means better performance for the citizens of Colorado.
The Division of Motor Vehicles apologizes for any inconvenience due to this important maintenance work. Boulder County also has three 24-Hour Ballot Drop Boxes that can be utilized overnight tonight and up until 7 p.m.
Voters who have returned their mail ballots can check BoulderCountyVotes.org to make sure their voted ballot has been received by the Boulder County Elections Division.
Additionally, for the public’s convenience, the Elections Division has added a new ballot drop-off location at the Lyons Town Hall. Visit BoulderCountyVotes.org to view ballot content, see if your ballot has been processed if returned, or find more information about the election. Specifically, the recent news article mentioned the need for additional Republican Party election judges for Signature Verification roles. During each open house, Boulder County Clerk and Recorder Hillary Hall will give walking tours of the election wing approximately every 30 minutes as needed. These tours offer people interested in local elections the opportunity to see how ballots are processed, understand how signatures are verified on mail ballots, and learn about how ballot resolution works among other ballot processing procedures and safeguards. Also, any citizen who has resided in Colorado at least 22 days may register up to and including Election Day. Please visit BoulderCountyVotes.org to view ballot content, see if your ballot has been processed if returned, or find more information about the election. Now that I’ve shared with you my affinity for bent plywood, here is another bowl stand with a completely different twist. My good friend Tim Haley (of Tangible Design, inc.) collaborated with me to produce this gem. This bowl holder is extremely sturdy – it is made of steel and has significant heft, which will keep it stationary while pets eat from it. I experimented with different textures by using the smooth cotton upholstry fabric in combination with the felt. We need to raise $3,200 in the next 17 days for the kickstarter project, or we get no money!
For those of you who have pledged, I’m asking you to try to find at least TWO friends to pledge. The way that most kickstarter projects succeed is NOT from a few large pledges… it is from a huge volume of people giving just a little bit (think $5, $10, $20). Additionally, I am offering “yummy!” surprise incentives for those of you who find friends to pledge! Today and tomorrow we are passing out postcards to local establishments (coffee shops, pet boutiques, veterinary clinics) in an attempt to spread the word about the Kickstarter project. If you would like to pass out postcards in your area or give some to friends, please send your name and address to christy =at= bigheartsfund =dot= org.


We also found a potential new metal former today who uses primarily CNC cutting machinery (as opposed to the waterjet cutters we used previously).
Even though I don’t have any pretty pictures of new products to show you today, I wanted to update everyone on our recent progress.
My board member Melissa and I are taking a seminar next week on writing comprehensive business plans for non-profits! Finally on the product front – the metal bowl stand designs (in 3 sizes!) have been finalized and we are simply waiting on price quotes from our manufacturers. The Cardiovascular Institute might be interested in our cause and subsequently in helping Lucy, thanks to the good work and endless generosity of my father’s cousin, J. Our 501©(3) application is well underway and in very good hands, thanks to the outstanding work of our dedicated lawyer, who I was so lucky to find just two short weeks ago. Here is one current idea for marketing our bowl stands in stores, while promoting our tax exempt mission – to raise funds and awareness about heart disease in dogs and cats. It has been a VERY productive weekend here at the Big Hearts Fund headquarters – check out our newly updated and spruced up website!
A brand new section where you can learn all you ever wanted to know about canine and feline heart disease. A list of all the special people who have helped support us this far – a list of all our generous kickstarter backers (thank you, thank you, thank you!!!) and the companies who have been helping us along the way.
We visited the plant yesterday where our bowl stands are being made, and we got to see them mid-process! As you can see if you look closely, the silicon pads at the base are coming un-peeled on the inside edges. The event will be held Friday, February 4th from 7 – 10pm at Bad Dog Tavern, a dog-friendly tavern in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago. Our silent auction promises to offer spectacular goods, services, and packages from many local businesses. Capacity at the venue is limited to 100 – we cannot guarantee that there will be tickets available at the door.
Fact: Preventative care is the NUMBER ONE THING that will save you from unexpected and costly veterinary bills. Here is a video put out by the American Veterinary Medical Association that tells us why pet dental hygiene is important, and details about how to adopt a tooth-brushing regime.
The thing that fuels this organization is the belief that some people out there will now have a place to turn to when they get similarly devastating news. I recently learned that dogs are the only other animals that understand what it means when a human being points at something. Thanks to EVERYONE for braving the cold, the horrible post-snowpocalypse traffic, and the difficult post-snowpocalypse parking situation! Send it our way, along with one reason why your dog or cat makes the best Valentine, and we’ll post it on the website! As you can probably imagine, developing The Big Hearts Fund’s Application for Aid is a tedious task wrought with potential pitfalls. Last Friday, I was lucky enough to have a phone conversation with Jacki, founder of IMOM (In Memory of Magic). Obviously with these documents, all social security numbers and account numbers should be blacked out before they are sent to us. Additional forms such as social security statements, unemployment benefit letters, food stamp approval letters, or copies of most recent pay stubs may be required of applicants who do not have federal income tax returns. 2) An itemized estimate for treatment, with cost broken down by procedure, for which this owner is applying for aid from The Big Hearts Fund.
As it says in our “about” section, we hope to begin accepting applications for aid sometime this spring.
The manufacturer says there is nothing they can do about this, as the punching process in this gage of metal creates this rough edge finish. We are doing several things right now to fix these problems and ensure that the product we release into the market meets our quality standards, ultimately because we care a whole lot about YOUR satisfaction with our product. 1) We have gotten quotes from laser cutting and water-jet cutting manufacturers to fix the edge finish problem. And here again is Charlie, cute little guy belonging to Big Hearts Fund Vice President Melissa Scaglione and her fiance Peter.
Here is an interesting article about the health benefits of owning pets, originally posted by the American Veterinary Medical Association. The primary role of our Vet Advisory Board will be to advise the Board of Directors on questions concerning veterinary matters. Aside from trading many fun and funny personal stories, I learned that there are only about 300 veterinary cardiologists in the entire world, and about 100 currently working in the United States. I happened upon the Cardiac Education Group website yesterday, and couldn’t wait to share it with the Big Hearts Fund community! Perhaps my favorite part was listening to the heartbeats and seeing the EKG rhythms of hearts with various problems.
I also found the following quote so hopeful, and right in line with what we experienced when Lucy was diagnosed with Tricuspid Valve Dysplasia. One of the major differences between a cardiologist and a generalist may be how they view heart failure prognosis. All handmade collars and leashes in The Big Hearts Fund store are 30% off with free shipping for Spring! The entire conference yesterday was focused on how Non-Profit businesses in today’s tough economic environment should explore self-generated income as an essential revenue stream for the future. It’s been a long day, but as long as I have my trusty platypus and my bone I am a happy girl. Yesterday we picked up our beautifully laser-cut and formed bowl stands from Prince Industries and transported them to Britt Industries for painting! The more I read about the prevalence of heart disease in pets, the more I wonder why we don’t hear more about this? For your enjoyment, here is Lucy and our Vice President Melissa’s dog Charlie playing at the Montrose dog beach earlier today!
We want to help other parents to find the best activities to do with their families, the best shops and websites to visit, and the most child friendly restaurants to eat in.

2) Faith-based organizations are continuing to express their outrage over Barack Obamaa€™s obscene remark during an interview on the Today Show interview. District Judge James Zagel, appears to be steering both the prosecution and the defense away from calling convicted felon Tony Rezko as a witness, and protecting Obama in the process. Boulder County will have 16 Voter Service and Polling Centers open throughout the county on Election Day with some of those locations opening as early as two weeks before Election Day. Members of the Executive Board of the County Clerk's Association will finalize the scholarship awards by May 1, 2015. There are no restrictions as to the course of study or training which may be pursued, and no restrictions are placed upon applications by reason of race, creed, age, gender, or national origin. Applications will be reviewed by a local committee appointed by Sheriff Pelle, and a selection will be made on the basis of criteria established by CSOC. Since then, this effort has continued as a meaningful expression of the sheriffs’ confidence in and respect for education and training. For more information, contact your local high school, college, County Sheriffs of Colorado, or the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office. At this point, challenges to the election of candidates to office or the result of a ballot issue election are allowed only in narrow circumstances, such as fraud or corruption that could change the result of the election.
In the 2010 gubernatorial race, candidate Tom Tancredo of the American Constitution Party received more than 10% of the vote statewide, the American Constitution Party (ACN) earned “major” party status until the next gubernatorial election, this year. This was in spite the fact that there were no significant discrepancies in the audit or in the reconciliation reports.
There was previously an election rule allowing a county clerk to certify local election results when the canvass board failed to certify. Boulder County used the state prescribed audit process which randomly selects the scanning systems, the electronic machines and the contests which to audit.
Our election vote reconciliation and audit show that the Boulder County election results are accurate.
Colorado currently has three major parties: American Constitution, Democratic and Republican. They have tried for years to get the courts or the legislature to change the way election canvass boards conduct their business, but have been unsuccessful in their attempts. Our office recommends that if you need a printed title immediately, that you either come in prior to the upgrade on Friday, November 7 or afterwards on Wednesday, November 12. Beginning on Monday, November 3, seven additional Voter Service and Polling Centers will be available to service voter needs.
If you need to register to vote, update your registration information, request a replacement ballot, or vote using equipment or facilities for people with disabilities, please visit a Voter Service and Polling Center. Those positions have been filled by the Republican Party Chair and any additional interested individuals must contact the party. No mail ballot is ever processed and counted without a bipartisan team of election judges verifying that the signature on your ballot envelope matches the signature on your voter registration record. Drive-by ballot drop-off locations open in Boulder, Longmont, Louisville, and a new walk-up station in Erie. The felt also adds some visual interest with contrasting color and adds a different textural component. We used it a bit on the bowl stand concept I posted yesterday, but here it is in a completely different context. This collar could also be used on small dogs, and the final would be made with several snaps for adjustability. Earlier posts show computer renderings of some colors we are considering – I’ll post my favorite color combo again so you can use your imagination with the photos of our current prototype! This will create a soft, non-scratch barrier for contact with the floor, as well as provide visual interest with textural contrast.
We are having two samples painted – one in a navy blue, and one in a light blue textured paint. Those of you who like materials and processes may find the following interesting: turns out spot welding will be cheaper and easier to perform than the bead welding we used on the original part. He suggested various ways to decrease weight without compromising structural integrity, and is making us another less expensive prototype. Well, we’re working on finding a bulk supplier for the stainless steel bowls (anyone know of one!?).
I am now searching for some good pro-bono legal help to look it over before sending it into the IRS. Cross your fingers our status gets granted… it’s looking hopeful that we will be officially tax-exempt by the end of the year! Also, you will notice that our site will change at this point – my brilliant husband, Chris Drackett, is bringing our site up-to-speed. We do everything from help you find a veterinary cardiologist near you, to telling you how to make your own homemade low-sodium pet food, to directing you to current studies about heart disease being conducted in veterinary medicine – this section really has it all. We are scheduled to pick up the finished products Monday or Tuesday of next week, and hope to have them for sale online by the end of the week next week.
We are working with our manufacturer to fix this problem and they have sworn to find us an adhesive that is actually permanent.
Money you contribute at the event will help us subsidize veterinary care of pets with heart disease!
Of additional note, please be aware that unfortunately, because the venue will be serving food, this event is for 2-legged creature attendance only.
Doing something as simple as brushing your pet’s teeth for a minute (or less) each day can save you hundreds, even thousands, of dollars in the long run. The Big Hearts Fund is not only a place where owners can find resources about how to care for their sick pets, but also is an organization they can support in order to channel their grief so that they do not feel powerless over the diagnosis.
Cats are completely different than dogs, but also emotionally smart companions – my cat Sgt. Scientific studies say they lower blood pressure and generally promote our health, both mentally and physically.


The Big Hearts Fund believes that all dogs and cats have a right to proper veterinary treatment, regardless of the financial status of their owners. All together, we raised $5,404.00 – which is equivalent to the cost of about 12 echocardiograms! I would personally like to extend a special thank you to some of our guests from the Chicago pet community, including Dr. And you can count on The Big Hearts Fund to share with you every heart-warming tale about the owners and pets we help treat with your money. Some of the questions I’ve been asking myself are: Just how do you objectively assess who really needs help? IMOM helps pet owners and shelters fund emergency veterinary care for pets who would otherwise have to be euthanized within 10 days of the diagnosis. This adhesive, paired with a lower durometer (softer) and thinner silicon, has fixed the peeling problem. Justin Allen of AETC centers here in Chicago, has accepted our offer to become the very first member of The Big Hearts Fund’s Veterinary Advisory Board! In short, they will be helping us maintain the medical information published on this website, and consulting with us regarding the applications for financial aid we will be receiving from pet-owners-in-need and their veterinarians who recommend treatment. Allen for your time and humbling dedication to the pet community – spending day-in and day-out caring for animals in your practice and then joining up with The Big Hearts Fund in your free time, I believe, raises you dangerously close to sainthood.
The Cardiac Education Group are Veterinary Cardiologists who aim to bring greater knowledge of cardiology into regular veterinary practice. Lucy’s heart sounds most like the mitral valve regurgitation, although I have not been told she has an arrhythmia. The vets in our regular office told us Lucy may go into congestive heart failure (CHF) within 6 months.
Many generalists are less optimistic about the dog’s chances of survival, whereas cardiologists tend to view CHF as a chronic condition requiring long term management strategies.
We are featuring our new, Special Edition BLUE large collars and leashes as part of this sale.
Faulkner is the President of Ways to Work, a unique economic empowerment program that helps working poor families solidify position in the workforce, build financial literacy and capacity, and attain self-sufficiency. We heard from several speakers, all of whom were directors of successful organizations that have embraced this idea (Ways to Work, Seguin Works, The Cara Program). They are organized, efficient, do quality work, and above all they do what they say they will do. Allen, the Veterinary Cardiologist heading up our Veterinary Advisory Board, the medical information on our website is being updated and added to! We believe in supporting local businesses and other mumpreneurs and in building communities. This ispirational teaching gives the viewer key insights on finding abundance by quieting their mind. Being a pastor, usually Ben leads with discussions about religion, and being a sports psycologist, Kevin generally is first to talk about sports. Stu saw first hand how dozens of children would flock around his casually tossed away soda pop can and play gleefully with it for hours.

In fact, since taking office, Secretary Williams and I have already met and spoken several times at length, and while our parties may differ, our dedication to administering proper and fair elections is aligned.
CSOC considers this an investment in the future and believes that our membership is helping to provide deserving students with an opportunity to make a positive contribution to society.
Additionally, the final Statement of Vote, a document that shows precinct-by-precinct results for every candidate and issue on the Boulder County ballots this year, will be forwarded to the Colorado Secretary of State’s office to become part of the official statewide election record and is available now online.
Despite this pre-calculated political action, the Boulder County Elections Division anticipates that the Colorado Secretary of State’s office will accept the results of the election as they did after both the 2012 General Election and 2014 Primary Election when similar political action was taken by a Canvass Board (see below for background details).
In Boulder County, like every other clerk office, we simply follow election law when conducting our canvass. The Elections Division also has several drive-by ballot drop-off locations where voters can turn in their mail ballot without even exiting their car. With the opening of these locations, that brings the total number of Voter Service and Polling Centers servicing the public to 13 within the County. Visitors will be able to observe workers processing ballots for the Tuesday, November 4 General Election. So make sure to sign your ballot envelope as you normally would – then check to make sure we received your mail ballot by visiting BoulderCountyVotes.org.
Avoid the rush and visit one our Voter Service and Polling Centers this Saturday from 9 a.m. In my humble opinion, it is the perfect medium to express modernity and simplicity, with the often-lacking-in-other-modern-design-mediums warmth. We’re experimenting by combining it with nylon webbing to produce some original collar concepts. If you pledged over $100 (because you love me!) and you don’t think you can find two friends who can match your pledge, can you at least find two friends to give what they can?
I got turned down by the Chicago Economic Development Law Project this afternoon because their mission excludes helping animals. I’m sure we will learn a lot, and Big Hearts will surely benefit from our effort to learn more and network!
And generous kickstarter backers – if you chose them as a reward, yours are being shipped to you TOMORROW! We missed the mark for Christmas due to some manufacturing glitches… but in product development, this happens on a regular basis.
The problem with the current adhesive is that it apparently does not stick to paint as well as it sticks to raw metal.
Pepper (usually referred to as Miss Poo Poo) silently follows me around, and runs to me meowing if I ever raise my voice.
The American Veterinary Medical Association says that 63 percent of ALL households in the United States have a pet, and about 75 million dogs and 85 million cats are owned in the United States. Justin Allen, the veterinary cardiologist at AETC, his lovely wife Kim (also a veterinarian), and his two gracious technicians Michelle and Gina. If you visit IMOM’s website, you will see for yourself that their application process is extremely thorough and streamlined.
Tolerances on the V.2 design are tighter on the bowl holes, eliminating the “rattle-trap” effect.
Versions of the bowl stands with these modifications are in testing as we speak with some of our resident doggie testers! Allen, I assumed that most of the applications for aid we may initially receive would be for pets needing diagnostic echocardiograms (around $500 each). The site is geared toward veterinarians seeking to further their own understanding of canine cardiology, but even as a layperson I found the information useful and interesting.
The other difference is that in Lucy’s heart, regurgitation is caused by deformation of the tricuspid valve, not the mitral valve (see illustration). Of course, the prognosis depends on the severity of disease at diagnosis, but many cardiologists have CHF patients that they have been managing for years. His organization provides small scale loans to working poor families, and then supports them in learning how to manage that money. I felt encouraged that The Big Hearts Fund is beginning with a business model that includes the sale of well-designed products to fund the charity. It took us a year to finally get a product we are satisfied with, but I’m so glad we did.
This week we want to tell you about the fantastic Rachel Dale, aka Girl Friday who advertises in our Parental Support and Helping Hands section.
Myers encourages the viewer to take the time to mentor others until the 'passing of the baton' is complete.
3) Taliban suicide car bomber attacked a convoy of NATO troops on Tuesday in Kabul, Afghanistan, killing five Americans and a Canadian soldier, plus 12 Afghan civilians. Senate race to fill the seat currently held by Roland Burris who was appointed to fill that position after Obama was elected President. I look forward to having a strong working relationship with Secretary Williams and his staff and am confident that our offices will have much improved communication.Last December, in the midst of closing out an election (which is an extremely detailed process), the now former Secretary of State Scott Gessler issued a report on our office practices. Additionally, Boulder County’s election had no documented discrepancies in the audit or the reconciliation that impacted the outcome of any contest. Nothing in Colorado law states that a canvass board’s decision not to certify the county’s abstract of votes nullifies the election of county candidates or decisions on county or local ballot issues. As of October 31, in Boulder County, the Republican Party represents 46,316 active and inactive voters, the Democratic Party represents 101,259 active and inactive voters, and the American Constitution Party represents 313 active and inactive voters. During this time, business at the Clerk and Recorder’s office Division of Motor Vehicle will be conducted as usual on Monday, November 10, except for a few small changes (Note: County offices will be closed on Tuesday, November 11 for Veterans Day). Any citizen who has resided in Colorado at least 22 days may register and vote, just visit any Voter Service and Polling Center and don’t forget to bring your ID. It also increases the weight of the product to keep it from sliding on the floor when the dog eats from it.
Taking this piece away is one potential solution for decreasing weight and manufacturing cost (read: welding cost). Bottom line, if we use these guys to produce our product line, all they have to do is walk across the hall for painting and finishing. They understand (probably better than we do!) exactly what we are feeling, the moment that we are feeling it. We were also pleased to meet Tina Wallace, the founder of BARC (Barriers Against Repeated Cruelty), and two other BARC board members Len Mayersky and Jody Haile.
To answer these questions, I’ve turned to other organizations who are doing the same thing in hopes of learning from them. It is very likely that our application process will require similar documents from owners and veterinarians. Allen to the BHF family (which will be officially happening at our next Board of Directors meeting next month), and have high hopes that our working relationship will enable us to help an even greater number of pets with heart disease.
We had met previously when he, accompanied by his lovely wife Kim and two AETC cardiology technicians, attended our fundraiser in February. Viewing CHF as a chronic health problem that requires occasional adjustments in medications when the condition worsens or when complications occur al- lows us to be realistic with owners about the goals of therapy. Starting the manufacturing process over again, though frustrating, has allowed us to make minor tweaks to the original design, helping us bring you a higher quality product.
Without such mentoring and modeling, there will be a huge leadership gap in the next generation. As I stated at the time, I was extremely disappointed in the accusations in the report and the manner in which Secretary Gessler released the report with no interaction with my office. A final report is issued to the Boulder County Canvass Board for verification prior to election certification. It is unfortunate and frankly a disservice to the voters of Boulder County that once again the Canvass Board chose to operate outside the boundaries of their duties as outlined in law and rule. Services available include: same-day voter registration and voting, in-person voting, ballot drop-off, replacement ballots, and voting using equipment and facilities for person with disabilities.
I designed and built this pet bowl stand 5 years ago, as a Christmas gift to my husband to use for his beloved (late) cat, Gorby. We have the second color combination chosen; more pictures will be posted by the end of the week. The good news is that the attorney I talked to was extremely helpful and suggested several other places I could call, including the Chicago Bar Association. We were also pleased to once again see Suzy Thomas, founder and director of Realtors to the Rescue.
There was only one problem with this – I can only find two other organizations in existence that help current pet owners pay for vet care. However, Wednesday was the first time we had a chance to sit down and have an uninterrupted conversation.
Allen supposed we may also receive several applications for readily available surgical interventions for common disorders, with a bill of around $3000-$5000 each. Although we are attempting to prolong the patient’s survival, the most important goal that we discuss with the owner is maintaining a good quality of life for their dog in CHF. Our process after each election is to spend a lengthy period of time examining our practices and how they can be improved upon. Things always take longer than expected, especially when you really want to make a deadline.
Our relationship goes back so far, and runs so deep, that they have actually EVOLVED to understand human beings. The vibration of her purring and her heartbeat reverberate through my body, soothing me back to sleep. The Big Hearts Fund is excited for what the future holds in terms of collaboration with these other great organizations! Work- ing with the owners, our job is to do what we can medically to allow the animal to maintain its appetite and energy level and to continue to function and interact with the family. She is my shadow, always in the background like a little grey-and-white guardian angel… and sometimes also a horrendous little demon.
And remember, Boulder County also has three 24-Hour Ballot Drop Boxes open every day, 24-hours a day, until 7 p.m. And finally, when we carried our dog bowl prototype into the facility through the office, the secretary barked at us.
I believe it is the human condition to constantly struggle with completely and unconditionally loving and accepting ourselves. If you look at it this way, its no wonder our relationship with dogs as companions goes back thousands of years.
