  • Dona Hurt 07/31/2013 Two more hours and we will know the results. Nail biting!!
  • Dona Hurt 07/27/2013 Awww the new picture of the dog on the website looks just like Libby did when she was a puppy. Could this be a good Omen????? :-)
  • Jo Heil 07/26/2013 I realize this is a little late. But if you all are voting for MH and not your park you will not gain anything due to the fact aother parks will continue to vote for their park closing the gap and by passing you.
  • Dona Hurt 07/25/2013 One more day Pontiac. Lets end strong!!! Whatever comes we can be proud!!!!
  • Gail Songdahl 07/24/2013 Keep it going Pontiac! You never know what will happen! VOTE!VOTE!VOTE!!!!
  • Teresa Prien 07/20/2013 I wonder if Petsafe knows how un-nerving those ???????s are. :) I guess it adds to the excitement of this game. Go, Pontiac! Stir up interest in your city and do what you have to do to get that dogpark you're dreaming of. RUFF! RUFF!
  • Dona Hurt 07/19/2013 Go Pontiac!
  • Teresa Prien 07/17/2013 I think I understand your displeasure with someone from another city asking for votes. But the fact is the 20,000 vote lead you have over Brighton is not worth anything if Texarkana beats Mountain House. You guys have worked hard to move up in the rankings, but I truly feel at this point in the game you've got to do what you can to get Mountain House back on top. I'm not from there, and have been getting my friends across the country on facebook to back Pontiac since I first learned of this. I'm afraid the runner-up prize that looked like it was yours two weeks ago is getting further and further away. Thanks for your time.
  • Mark Harringer 07/17/2013 I just wish people from other communities would quit "trolling" on other sites, trying to plead their case to vote for them. Just vote for your community or state and let the rest of do the same. We're giving it our best shot and are not going on to other cities' sites asking those communities to band together. I thought this was a "friendly" battle, not all out warfare!!!!!
  • Monique Deluna 07/17/2013 Hoping Pontiac realizes if they help MOUNTAIN HOUSE get the grand prize, then Pontiac gets the top small city prize. Your votes do matter. Think about it...... woof woof for the little guy. its david vs. goliath
  • 07/16/2013 It is so hard to know what the best strategy is. What we do know is that Petsafe has given us an awesome opportunity to try to win a dog park. The contest, win or lose, has allowed Pontiac a way to bring publicity to the fact that there is a real need for this facility.
  • Dona Hurt 07/14/2013 We are so thankful for everyone's support! Who would have thought MH would lose their lead:-( It's not that we didn't want the $100,000 but we would be more then happy with the $25,000. We thought about telling everyone to vote for HM but we decided to stick up for ourselves. After Friday votes were over, it would not have mattered or helped giving them our votes. So, just keep voting for Pontiac. Lets hope MH has something up their sleeve for "Howl at the Moon" period. Keep positive Pontiac:-)
  • Teresa Prien 07/14/2013 If MH wins, then the small city that's in second will get runner-up. I <3 the pictures of the Pontiac pooches. Best of luck to all of you!
  • Monique Deluna 07/14/2013 so if Mountain House wins the $100,000 then you guys get the $25,000 for top city , right???
  • Teresa Prien 07/14/2013 It doesn't seem fair, but they're not breaking any rules. Different city, different state. They can vote for each other the same way some of us in Texas are voting for Pontiac! I hate that if they win the parks will be less than 5 miles apart. Somehow that doesn't seem fair. But Texarkana, Texas has tremendous community support and are totally on a roll. Two big cities, lots of publicity, plus familiarity with the contest and the benefits of winning are all in their favor, sorry to say. Don't give up, Pontiac. (I do have to mention, though, that you have what seems like a good lead over the closest small city (over 19,000 last time I checked). Still can't help but wonder if the top two teams are out of reach and if you might consider voting for MH so that you'll have a good chance at the Runner-up prize. Or do you think you can get twice as many votes as you got the first 3/4 of the voting period in the last 1/4? It's so hard to know what to do. Pulling for you. We've been a backer since we first learned of this.
  • Mark Harringer 07/13/2013 It's really not fair. Texarkana, AK. won last year. So they are voting for Texarkana, TX. this year. Double the cities, double the votes. How can you really compete with that? Just keep voting for Pontiac and we'll see where the chips fall!!!!
  • vickie jaime 07/13/2013 ok i made it to the site yea
  • Lisa Bahler 07/13/2013 Yes, that clarifies it! Holy moley, we better get on the ball. then! I've been trying to do my part here in Fairbury getting the word out. Lisa Bahler
  • Teresa Prien 07/13/2013 It is NOT the top 5 overall. There will be 5 winners. The top OVERALL winner is Grand Prize winner. Then the top NON-winner in each category (Lg, Med, and Sm) will be declared runner-up and win $25,000. It was good to vote and bring Pontiac up in the standings, but unless you can beat all and be the TOP winner, the only other way to win (unless things change dramatically) is for Mountain House to win. See they are a small city. If they win overall and you are second in Smalls then you'll be runnerup. Tex. is in a different category. If they win Grand Prize, Mountain House will be the runner-up in the Small one. I didn't get it for quite a while either. Does that make sense now?
  • 07/13/2013 I still don't quite understand how this works. Does Pontiac have to be in the top 5 overall in order to win anything? Because the way Mountain House is commenting over trying to get ahead of Texarkana, why would they have to do that if they are already in the #1 small town spot? Please explain the rules!
  • Dona Hurt 07/13/2013 Good job Pontiac!!!
  • Dona Hurt 07/12/2013 please please vote today everyone. Lets not give up!!!! Go to barkforillinois.com, it will give you quick links to vote and also tell you how to play scavenger hunt today (every Friday) Tell all your friends!!!!!!! You don't have to live in Pontiac to vote!!!!!!!!
  • Dona Hurt 07/11/2013 Well, I am challenging everyone to vote tomorrow. Friday is a big voting day. PetSafe has a scavenger hunt that allows someone to get 7 EXTRA VOTES!!! Each person can get 9 votes in one day, your reg vote, facebook vote & scavenger hunt vote(7). Get everyone in your household to vote. Vote for them is they are having trouble. Call your relatives, friends and neighbors and have everyone in their household vote!!! We want a FREE dog park. Vote for Pontiac. Go to BarkforIllinois.com and it will explain the process to you and give you direct links to the voting sites!!!!!!!
  • Dona Hurt 07/10/2013 Thanks Oakforest. We appreciate it! Gather all your dog lovers and send them our way!!!! LOL
  • nancy huemmer 07/10/2013 Stay the course and keep voting Pontiac. Another vote from Oak Forest for ya! Wishing you good luck! and remember, "it ain't over til the fat lady sings!"
  • Dona Hurt 07/09/2013 We are reading all your comments. Its like being in Las Vegas right now, should you or shouldn't you. We would like all our votes to stay for Pontiac, Il. We would like for Mountain House to have a Ace up their sleeve and get ahead of Texarkana. However if we vote for MH will we lose our lead from the cities below us. $25,000 is a lot of money. What would be the best is for us to have an Ace up our sleeve. We have tried contacting everyone from local state politicians,TV news,animal shelters,police and firefighters. We need to hit that group of people who will be loyal and vote everyday especially on Fridays. If we hit that group of people things could change drastically and we might be going for the $100,000 instead of $25,000. Can anyone help us try to reach that group of people? We might be behind but we could still do it. Try your contacts in Bloomington/Normal, Peoria, Pekin who have nice dog parks. Heck if you know a Chicago based group get them on board. I am challenging all of you to help find us votes!!!! We have 3 Fridays left. I urge you to go fourth and multiply Pontiac!!!!
  • 07/09/2013 Sorry, my votes are staying in the state of Illinois. Our state is so messed up with political rhetoric, this might be our only chance to secure the funds we need. Even if you're not from Pontiac, all Illinois should vote for us.
  • Patty Witte 07/09/2013 Mountain House, CA. must be the home of the Chicago Cubs of the west asking us to help them out this year and they'll help us "next year". Who ever said Pet Smart will do this next year? I'll take my chances and vote for MY home community THIS year!!!!!!!!
  • 07/09/2013 Thank you to those of you in Pontiac that are casting votes for Mountain House, CA! We want to show Texarkana that a small town can win the grand prize too! Good luck to you.
  • Monique Deluna 07/08/2013 Bark out to everyone in Pontiac, IL. Help MountainHouse, the leading small city who just fell behind bigass Texarkana,TX. Lets all join forces to whoop** Tx. Vote Mountain House, next year we'll have you back (and tail)
  • Teresa Prien 07/08/2013 Is the 1000 vote bonus (from 1000 views) a one-time thing? Or does a city get 1000 EACH time they hit 1000 views?
  • Mark Harringer 07/07/2013 Maybe PetSmart took the holiday off. Because Thursday we hade 28K+ and now we're over 34K+. They probably just didn't get around to putting the star on our site.
  • Teresa Prien 07/07/2013 Does anyone know when Pontiac will get their star? Yesterday (or the day before) the video had over 1000 views on youtube. Does it have to be viewed here to count? Let's keep watching it, just in case.
  • Thomas Prien 07/07/2013 I can't blame Texarkana, TX for wanting their own dog park, (who doesn't?) but do those joint cities need two of them, just 4 and 1/2 miles apart? NO. Does Pontiac need one? YES. If Mountain House wins, Pontiac can get runner-up, and Texarkana can, too!
  • Patricia Harrison 07/06/2013 Hi Texarkana TX has taken over our lead because they teamed up with last years winners Texarkana Arkansas! We had an 8000 vote lead over them yesterday and over night they took the lead away from us :( .
  • Ted Cagley 07/06/2013 Texarkana, TX has replaced Mountain House, CA in the overall lead, dropping Pontiac out of a winning spot. Since we have a 10,000 vote lead over the next spot, might it do us better to cast our votes for Mountain House to put them back in the overall lead, especially on the Friday 8-vote day?
  • nancy huemmer 07/04/2013 Oak Forest rooting for you Pontiac with another vote! Great video! Take those laptops and mobile devices with you to gather extra votes when you're out and about celebrating 4th of July holiday!!!
  • Gail Songdahl 07/04/2013 I absolutely love the video! It's sad, it's funny, it's true and it's RIGHT ON! A big thanks to Scott McCoy for your time and your talent! Everybody keep watching, we want the star!
  • Dona Hurt 07/03/2013 It's great to see the excitement from others. We appreciate all the help, votes and views!! Keep going :-)
  • Carolyn Headley 07/03/2013 LIVE IN BLOOMINGTON, GREW UO IN PONTIAC, MY HUSBAND AND I VOTE EVERDAY ! LET'S GO PONTIAC! CAROLYN (CURTISS) HEADLEY
  • Teresa Prien 07/03/2013 Getting closer and closer to the 1000 views. We can do it, folks! 1000 views = 1000 valuable votes!
  • Sharry Kuehn Murawski 07/02/2013 Another vote from Oak Forest...Good Luck!!
  • Dona Hurt 07/02/2013 Thanks Laura! We appreciate all the votes we can get:-) Glad you like the video!!!!
  • Laura Odette-Clemons 07/02/2013 Another vote from Oak Forest. Your video is awesome! Loved it!
  • Dona Hurt 07/01/2013 Mark, we need 1000 views. I don't think it matters if it is multiple times. However, I think they watch to see if it is sometype of computer program that keeps running the video. It doesn't seem to keep count right away. Watch it as many times as you want. We want a star by our cities name. It tells everyone you have gotten your 1000 hits!!! Take care!!
  • Mark Harringer 07/01/2013 Dona: I have a question. Does Pontiac need 1000 "hits" to get the incentive? Or do 1000 different people have to view the commercial? If it's 1000 "hits", I could do that in 1 day since I am still partially confined to my apartment because of my kidney transplant. But if this is OK with the committee, I will be glad to do it.
  • Dona Hurt 07/01/2013 Hey everyone! Please tell watch our video on the BarkForIllinois.com web site. We will get and extra 1,000 votes if we get 1,000 viewings. Tell your family, co-workers and friends. Tell everyone!!! Keep voting!!
  • Cyn Rock 06/29/2013 The Friday "sniff" has ended. But keep up with your voting daily!
  • Catherine McKee 06/29/2013 I just tried the Friday "Sniff" vote and it is still working if you didn't get your vote in yesterday. After you login, click on "petsafe.net" and the panel will come up with the clue. Put "magic" in the search box and it will take you directly to the toy you need to click on. Click on it and the screen with the question will appear. The answer is B so, be sure to vote! I don't know how long the site will be working, so good luck.
  • Jen Baker 06/29/2013 I tried the scavenger hunt on my lunch break. The clue came up and I started searching. I was on the page that I needed to be on, but nothing happened. I gave up and went back to work. When I came home later in the afternoon, I got on and tried again. Success!! They must have been setting it up when I tried earlier. Have to remember that Fridays I vote after work. Closing in on 25,000 votes. Way to go Pontiac!!
  • Ted Cagley 06/28/2013 The Friday trivia pops up on my opening page. But I clicked on every sale items in treats, toys, and feeders and never got a popup, so I don't know what I am doing wrong.
  • Dona Hurt 06/28/2013 Remember the "sniff out" scavenger hunt is today. It will start sometime after noon. They don't give us an exact time. Remember to go to BarkforIllinois.com. It will help you with everything you need to know. Right now we are in the position to get $25,000. Lets not let anyone get ahead of us in the small division!!! If we could get all of Illinois voting we might catch up to Mountain House!! lol that would be AWESOME!!
  • Dona Hurt 06/27/2013 We have made it even easier for people to vote!!!!! Barkforyourpark.com now has direct links both voting site, pet safe and now Facebook. Ther are complete instructions on how to play the sniff out scavenger hunt on fridays which IS SO IMPORTANT!!!!!!! Vote daily on each site and get those extra votes on fridays. Vote through July 26!!!!!!!!!
  • Gail Songdahl 06/26/2013 Thanks to all of you in New Jersey for your support!
  • Dona Hurt 06/26/2013 Mark, In the small division we are 2nd. If the contest ended right now, we would have $25,000 in the bank. Mountain House is #1. It would be hard to catch up to them so if they stayed #1, the next city in line in the small division will get the $25,000. We either have to surpass the #1 city with the most votes to get $100,000 or hope Mountain House wins and we stay ahead of everyone in the small category to get the $25,000 prize! We have our own website now called BarkforIllinois.com. We updated this site and made it REALLY easy to vote. It now has DIRECT LINKS TO BOTH VOTING SITES, PetSafe and Facebook. It also has directions on how to play the sniff out scavenger hunt. So promote that site. Really appreciate your excitement in helping us win this contest!!
  • Mark Harringer 06/26/2013 Dona, I think I got this right. We're #6 overall, but #2 in small market standings. Do we have to be in the top #5 overall for Pontiac to get the 25K? If so, citizens of Pontiac get your fingers a clicking on that key-pad and move us the ladder. Pontiac, we can do this, we aren't that far from 5th place and then the push will be on. Give everything you got P-Town.
  • Dona Hurt 06/25/2013 Well everyone, the video was uploaded to petsafe. I think they should be released for viewing on July 1st. We need 1,000 hits to get an extra 1,000 votes!! So, be ready and don't forget to vote everyday. Friday's are special. Go to barkforillinois.com and it will explain the scavenger hunt for everyone to earn and extra 7 votes!!!
  • Dona Hurt 06/24/2013 Mark, Love your attitude!! Help us keep everybody alive and voting LOL Voting everyday is what we need. However, Fridays are crucial to play the scavenger hunt! WE love cheerleaders!!!! VOTE, VOTE, VOTE
  • Mark Harringer 06/24/2013 We're #6!!! We're #6!!! Lt's keep this movement going north. We're a little behind #5, but I know the citizens of Pontiac have it in them to push us to the next level.
  • Mark Harringer 06/23/2013 This is the Pontiac I know and believe in. Give he citizens a challenge and they will come through for you. #6 is in sight and we need a BIG push in the last month to move into that #5 slot. Here's a novel idea. If youi know people who work in an office(and they usually have computers), get them all to vote on separate computers and that will generate a lot more votes... "When the going gets tough, the tough get going". And Pontiac is one of the toughest communities, not only in the state, but in the nation. Keep it going P-Town!!!!!!
  • Gail Songdahl 06/23/2013 Way to go Pontiac! We are moving up. It's still early in the game. Keep up the voting!
  • Dona Hurt 06/22/2013 Got my wish!! I said I wanted to wake up Saturday morning and be way ahead of Tennessee. We DID it!! We stressed Fridays were such an important day with the scavenger hunt. Thanks for being patient everyone and waiting for the hunt to start. It didn't start until 2pm yesterday. It was hard to keep my fingers from voting til then!!! Do you realize that if the contest ended today that we would be $25,000 richer :-)
  • Teresa Prien 06/21/2013 Wow, 2000 below Brighton yesterday, and 2000+ above Brighton today. What a difference a day makes. Keep it up, Pontiac. You can do it!
  • Carolyn Headley 06/21/2013 Our dog BEBE was adopted from the Central Illinois Humane Society ob 7-14-12. We take her to the Dog Pak on Shepard Road in Bloomington. Since i am from Pontiac and come to visit frequently, would love to bring BEBE to Pontiac to enjoy the Dog Park experience in my home town. Carolyn ( Curtiss ) Headley
  • Dona Hurt 06/20/2013 the scavenger hunt usually doesn't start till around noon.
  • Dona Hurt 06/20/2013 We are picking up speed!!! Less then 2,000 from Tennessee!! We use to be around 2500 below them. Vote everyone especially on Fridays!! Go to barkforillinois.com if you don't know how to play the sniff out scavenger hunt. Its really really important to play this it gives us a whole 8 votes per person. One is from your usual vote and them with the hunt you get 7 more. If you have face book you could get another vote. 9 votes in total. Get everyone to vote!!!
  • Carolyn Headley 06/20/2013 Grew up in Pontiac Illinois I now live in Bloomington Illinois Vote for Pontiac Dog Park Carolyn ( Curtiss) Headley
  • Thomas Prien 06/20/2013 Please post the link to your youtube video as soon as it's available. We can put it out there to make sure Pontiac gets the 1000 viewers and the 1000 votes!

  • Laura Clemons 06/19/2013 Keep up the GREAT work Pontiac! Awesome! Put flyers everywhere in town, attend festivals and events where you can find lots of people. We had a lot of success with mobile voting - we had laptops wherever we went!
  • Mark Harringer 06/19/2013 Marc Edwards I've just started voting for about a week. I see we are trailing to get in that 5th spot. May I suggest having both the Daily Leader and radio station make a "hard" push to get into that 5th spot before July 26th. Contacts for the Daily Leader would either be Cynthia Grau or Luke Smucker and for the radio station it is Todd Wineburner. Pontiac got the funds for Lions Park, let's do it again for the Dog Park
  • Mark Wepprecht 06/19/2013 Tuesday was a long but fun day. We made our 30sec commercial for the PetSafe contest. I can't wait for everyone to see it. Vote everyone!!!!! Thanks for all the encouragement from other communities!!!!
  • nancy huemmer 06/18/2013 Keep it up Pontiac, great to see you moving up! Those bonus votes on Friday are so important, be sure to send out your reminders via email, phone or however you get the word out best! Good luck from Oak Forest!
  • Kat Adams 06/17/2013 Good Luck Pontiac!
  • Dona Hurt 06/17/2013 We are moving up!!! We might not catch up to Mountain House but that $25,000 is right in front of us with hard work!!! Keep voting and on a consistent basis. Fridays are really important. Helpful hints on directions to play the scavenger hunt are on BarkforIllinois.com
  • Teresa Prien 06/17/2013 C'mon, folks! Message every online friend (especially dog-lovers) that you have to come vote. Ask them to vote today and every day! Less than 100 votes from nine place, and not that many more to reach eighth.
  • Dona Hurt 06/16/2013 Come on everyone call your friends and family and get them on board!!! They can live in Illinois or another state it doesn't matter. We want our numbers to rise fast!!
