Here in the Shaheen family, we’ve always known that Coach is a hero, but this year The American Humane Association took notice as well.
Coach has been nominated as a Hero Dog in the American Human Association Hero Dog Awards for 2016.
Voting closed on April 27, so we’re now anxiously awaiting the final announcement on May 11. If he wins, we’ll be off to California for a complete Los Angeles-style celebration, including a stroll on the red carpet.
Here’s the link for more information, and in the mean time, keep your fingers crossed!
The news is out… in a big way. Earlier this spring CNN visited our house to chat with Elle, and see how Elle and Coach live and work together on a daily basis.
We are always honored when national media is interested in our story. If you haven’t seen CNN’s piece, here it is:
We continue to be amazed and touched by the support Elle and Coach has received from readers. We are reminded on social media daily that Elle’s story has resonated with so many people, and earlier this spring we were honored to receive the official proof: the book landed on both the New York Times and USA Today Best Sellers Lists.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased Elle and Coach!
