we've got signatures, help us get to 3,500 by January 9, 2014
Wallace the Pit Bull was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer and was given only a few short months to live. He recently surpassed the months given to live and is completing as many bucket list items as he can! He doesn't know how much longer he has but one bucket list item is to get on the Ellen show! Let's help get him there! Maybe this petition will make it's way to the Ellen producers so he can check Ellen off his list!
A little about Wallace (copied off his Facebook page): Wallace was a shelter dog turned disc champion. He won the 2006 Cynosport World Games and the 2007 Purina Incredible Dog Challenge National Championship for flying disc, changing minds one disc at a time. He has been enjoying retirement for a couple of years since. Now he has hemangiosarcoma, an aggressive cancer, and is working his way through his bucket list adventures.
Jim Gorant has also written a book about his life! Find book here: http://www.amazon.com/Wallace-Underdog-Conquered-Championed-Bulls-One/dp/1592407315
*UPDATE 1/10/13 @ 6:20A mst* When I checked status of this petition, I was amazed at the love and support Wallace has! I had gathered 1,020 signatures! I have now increased the signature goal to 3,000! THANK YOU SO MUCH AND CONTINUE TO SPREAD THE WORD!*
I am writing to nominate Wallace the Pit Bull to be a guest on your show. I created this petition and was hoping to collect 1,000 signatures in support of having him on your show but I received over 1,000 signatures in the first day of launching it so I have increased the limit to 3,000 signatures! Thousands of people love this pit bull for so many reasons! He has a lot of support from animal lovers far and wide because of who he is, where he came from and what he is currently going through! He is an ambassador of the breed but unfortunately also has a very aggressive form of cancer.
Short version of his story: Wallace was a shelter dog rescued by a wonderful family, went on to become a 2 time disc champion, has had a book written after him by famed author Jim Gorant (http://www.amazon.com/Wallace-Underdog-Conquered-Championed-Bulls-One/dp/1592407315) and most recently was diagnosed with cancer. He was given a few short months to live which he surpassed in December! His Vet might not know how much time he has left but since finding out his unfortunate fate, he created a bucket list. His ultimate goal, to be on your show! He would be an awesome guest and so many of your viewers would fall in love with him! He has an incredible story to tell! Please help him achieve this bucket list item! From one animal lover to another, please consider Wallace as a guest!!
