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!
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!
What a week this has been!
Elle & Coach was released on Tuesday, and the welcome it has received in national and regional press has been truly humbling. We’ve had the opportunity to talk with so many media outlets to tell Elle and Coach’s story.
Here are a few of our favorites from this week:
In mid-August, just after we got back from a wonderful overseas trip with our family, Good Morning America visited our house to meet Elle and Coach, learn about the book and to see Coach work in person. Coach even alerted while they were at our house for the interview. You can watch the full segment here.
People Magazine is also jumping into the game, with an article in the issue that hits newsstands on August 28. We’ll add a link as soon as it’s available.
Regional news were on board as well. Boston.com gave us a very nice review (pictured below), as did NECN (click to watch the video).
On Thursday, we were honored to get an article in the Boston Globe .
There has been more media coverage than we can list here, and our sincerest thanks go out to everyone for supporting us.
