Well, their expenses were all probably paid for by whoever manages the money for Ellen's show (is that how that works?). And, they get to meet Ellen, which would be awesome.


I get that it would be all-expenses paid. I don't get that people do a good deed and then feel the need to soak up the sun or get their names in the news. I realize I'm likely in the minority on the subject, but I wish people could live their lives without feeling the need or want to be on TV for it. Do they really need Ellen and a live studio audience to pat them on the back and tell them they did the right thing?


That's a bit harsh. If you watched the original thread develop, it sure didn't seem like any of those guys were going into the search with hopes of gaining fame/fortune from it. They were just animal lovers who wanted to find an abandoned dog (and did so, despite odds against it). Just because that event was noteworthy enough to attract some media attention does not mean that these guys were looking for their 15 minutes of fame... the "fame" found them.

Personally, I avoid being on the news most of the time. I've been on television a few times because of work, and I don't seek out such adventures. But, given the circumstances that took place in this case, I'd have taken a free trip to Cali to go on the show.

Just read this story in my morning paper and its my first chance to comment. My first comment, I think the rescuers going on Ellen is cheesy as all get out. Many people do great unselfish things and expect no recognition, they wanted thier 15 minutes, whatever, I hope thier happy, and the gift cards, that makes it even worse, thats profiting from a deed, they should have donated those cards to a charity.
I lossed my dog of 11 years last month, I rescued her when I was living in Colorado springs. Its hard to say what we would do in a similiar situation but Ill try. IF and thats a big IF, I had to leave my dog, my ass would have been back up there the next day with help to get her, that is a fact pure and simple. As far as this dude goes, he's been jacked around enough, Ill leave him be.

And yet never mentioned/posted/linked as the Ellen show seemed to be the focus and that was same date of the last post. Hadn't read much of a version of the owner's side of the situation, only the reaction. Take from the article what you will.

...at some point the horse is going to come back to life just to ask you to stop beating it.

This story explains why so many people asked if my dogs paws were ok when we did the Sawtooth in mid September.
My fat old dog, Kia, was diagnosed with diabetes 2 weeks ago.
So how fat was this dog, if my overweight 10 year old diabetic mutt has no problem with that route?
