Then the winner will be chosen by popular vote an receive a $50,000 grant plus $50,000 in marketing support.

Your story got my endorsement, Julie! I think it's wonderful that your pet air beds are not only great for pets, but also for the environment! How your dear Gertie inspired the creation of the air beds is so sweet, and kudos to you for making such a great product. Hope your hard work and caring heart are rewarded. C'mon, Beagles... VOTE for the Gertie Gear story! Arrrooooo!

Thank you for your votes and kind words.
