    Hello everyone!

    I recently entered my pug's photo in our local newspaper’s Cutest Canine Contest. The newspaper has received over 6,000 entries! Yikes!

    There will be three rounds of voting over the next month. The first round includes every single entry and will help to narrow the field significantly for the final two rounds. I think the only way for people to advance to the next round is by campaigning for votes from friends and family. I can't imagine the general public will sift through over 6,000 entries to find a few they like.

    I thought I would post the link to the contest and my pug photo. If you happen to like it and think it deserves a vote that would be amazing! The contest website says you can vote as much as you’d like (it seems like you can cast a new vote every 60 seconds!). Voting for this 1st round goes from December 29 – January 8. You do have to register for the newspaper’s website to be able to vote but it’s super easy to do so.

    The voting just opened today and I noticed one picture already has 225 votes! I don’t know how they did that?!

    Entry entitled “Puggy Loves the Sunshine” on page 410 last entry on the page #4920. Direct link to photo:

    There are registration instructions included if you click the above link. Maybe a few of my fellow Minnesotans will already be registered users and able to vote?

    Thank you for your time and support!!!

            Ok... finally got to vote! For some reason the confirmation e-mail went into my junk box. That pic of him is too much! I just want to squeeze him!

              Thank you so much girls! The website has been a PIA. I was able to register easily, but my mom and FI had troubles. Hopefully it goes smoothly for you. FI didn't get a confirmation email and had to click "resend confirmation email".

                Awwww thank you so much Casey! I love him so much and he is very squeezable! If you click "next" at the top of his page the next pic is of my pug girl. I decided it made more sense to campaign for one pic instead of both.

                  Well, you're a shoe in!

                  Oh yeah, and I had to have them resend the confirmation too. Totally worth it though! Good luck

                    Thank you! I'm sitting here with the window open hitting refresh every minute. I need to stop this at some point :). If you hit refresh after 60 seconds it automatically submits another vote.
