Vote for Us to Win $5,000 from Kurgo!



If you haven’t yet heard, Dave and I are incredibly excited to announce that we are one of 15 finalists up to win $5,000 and sponsorship from the Live Your Kurgo Adventure Contest. We’ve spent a lot of time working on our application and creating a video for the contest, and now we need your help. Please visit the link above and click on the thumbs up to vote for us. No need to give away any information or sign up for anything. Just vote!

Voting continues through April 29 and Kurgo will select four winners on April 30. We hope that we are among them!

We discovered Kurgo and this contest after a friend had forwarded me the link, telling me to apply. Based out of Massachusetts, Kurgo was founded by two brothers, Kitter and Gordie Spater, who grew up playing in the Vermont woods with their dogs. Inspired by an instance where Kitter’s pup, Zelda ended up wrapped around the pedals of the drivers’ seat in the car, the brothers developed a safety harness for dogs in the car and Kurgo was born.

Thank you so much for your help in propelling us forward towards our dream trip with Sora!
