Report from St. Paul: A Moment for the Animals

By September 3, 2008General

(NAM Executive Vice President Jay Timmons is blogging from the Republican National Convention this week in St. Paul, Minn., following up on his reports from the Democratic Convention last week in Denver.)

OK – I admit this is self-serving, but hey it’s a blog! And, well, who doesn’t like dogs and cats?

Ran into NBC News’ David Gregory walking into the Xcel Center. In addition to being a highly respected and always prepared journalist, David is just an all around nice guy.

I took the opportunity to again thank him for being the special guest at the Washington Humane Society’s annual Bark Ball earlier this year. As the Chair of WHS in my spare time, I promote the rescue, shelter and adoption of companion pets in the nation’s capital with CEO Lisa LaFontaine and her staff and volunteers.

It’s a great non-partisan cause and David Gregory was a fantastic draw.
