Come on Merrimack!! Keep voting!!!

Lots of cute doggies in Merrimack! Let's win a park for all 4,000 of them :)

Holly Morales

If we get lumped with towns in the 15K-30K population grouping, we are 6th. We need to rally, Merrimack, if we want that coveted 5th finalist spot!

Holly Morales

In towns 20-30K in population, Merrimack is currently in 4th PLACE with votes!!!!

j h

Yeah Merrimack, NH!!!! :)

Holly Morales

We passed another town! Keep it up, Merrimack!!!

Holly Morales

If we are placed in towns 20K in population and higher, we would be in 5th place overall and 3rd place in required criteria.

Holly Morales

It is very hard to know what place we are in. If you put us in the 15K-30K sized towns (who knows where Petsafe will put us), we are 12th with regards to votes, but 5th with regard to all required criteria.

Janie garza

Does anyone know what place we are in?

C Lavoie

It may look like a lot of votes but with the stiff competition, we need everyone to vote 2x daily! Spread the word!!! Check out the Friends of the Merrimack Dog Park FB page, stay connected with all thats going on!!

Holly Morales

I know it looks like a lot of votes, but there is stiff competition from a handful of other towns. We have to keep voting if we want to be a contender for finalist! Vote 2X every day to June 7!!!

C Lavoie

Come on Merrimack! Keep voting!! We need to get as many votes as possible! Spread the word!!

C Lavoie

Come on Merrimack, you say you want a dog park, winning this will be a help in fundraising!!!! Keep voting and spreading the word!!!

Holly Morales

Urge friends and family to help! Let's get to 1,000!!!!

Chris .

Thank you Clark! Keep voting everyone, check our FB page: Friends of the Merrimack dog park. Ask your friends and family to help vote too!!!

Clark Harvey

I already made a $50 donation and challenge all to match or better it!!!

Tara Perkins

Vote, vote, vote, we need a park in town for our dogs!

Janet Campbell

Our dogs are counting on us, don't let them down!

Holly Morales

We have moved up in the standings. Looks like we are roughly in 30th place. It going in the right direction, but we need more votes. Refer to Lisa's post before this one!!!!

Lisa Depalma

Double your votes by getting your spouse or family members involved. Just simply say, "OK, your turn now dear!" Then, get up off the chair and let them use your computer. Trust me, they will thank you for the easy reminder. And so will the dogs!

C Lavoie

Come on Merrimack! Our dogs need our help! If we win we get a dog park and to watch Bill Boyd take a Polar Plunge!!!
