Nuke is a very special dog. He's a rescue, who has now turned into a blood donor. He's saved ten lives! Sadly, he also donated blood to Annie, but she was too ill and we had to let her go. We still appreciated Nuke's sacrifice, and I'll never forget spending that last day in the clinic, lying on a blanket together, watching Nuke's blood going into her leg, and feeling grateful that we had a chance to save her life.
Though we lost Annie, there are many other dogs who can be saved by blood donors, and Nuke is unique in the fact that he has a universal blood type. I'd love to see him win this contest, not only because he deserves it, but it will bring awareness and hopefully more people will allow their pups to donate blood.
