A Chance to Meet the Heroes of the Dog World

10616488_10204088958438781_1234218457561906932_nI'm so excited to be heading to Bloomington, IL this month. On November 15th, you can find me at the Barnes and Noble on E. Empire Street, where I'll be hanging out with some incredible two-legged and four-legged heroes.

If there's two things I love, it's law enforcement and dogs! State Farm has been gracious enough to put together this awesome event, and I can't wait to hang out with these life-saving dogs and handlers. State Farm's Heather Paul has been working her tail off to make this a fun event for everyone, so be sure to say hello if you see her there! I'm excited to see her and to spend a few hours with my dog-loving fans.

Joining me will be 'Arson Dogs' star Jerry Means and his retired arson dog, K-9 Sadie. The pair won the 2011 American Humane Association Hero Dog Award in the Arson Dog category. Jerry is one of the funniest, nicest guys I know, and I hope many of you will get to meet him!

2012 American Hero Dog of the Year MWD Gabe will also be at this awesome event. He will be joined by his guardian, Sergeant Chuck Shuck of the US Army.

Last but not least, another amazing duo joining us will be 2014 American Humane Association Hero Dog Winners in the Arson Dog category, Arson Investigator Justin Davis and K-9 Kai.

I hope to see many of you at this fun event! Here's more info.
