Pet Photo Contest Preview

National Dog Week | Day 6

Pardon Our Tongues
Pet photo contest in progress

While I'm working on our pet photo contest, you better be making the most out of this week. I hope the shelters are about empty by now (I wish). 

I would like to thank my close furiends for their furry "encouraging" comments, nooot! I hear things like:

... I have devoted my Saturday Post to YOU and your tongue contest. Hope you don't mind... a little more ADVERTISING.

...Snikhkering (at me)

...I have been following all the entries for your contest. Hehehe. There are some really wicked awesome photos, but not many of the doggies identified which is their official entry. Ha! ... Welcome to the world of blog contests.

I would like all of you to know  that this teacup chihuahua has no limits! Bring it on! I am on top of the situation and my numerous assistants are too. Thank you all for your lovely entries. Would you like a sneak peek??? Click on the page tab labeled: Show Us Your Tongue. While you're there, please make sure I didn't leave out any furiend. I even included a couple from the rainbow bridge, but I'm not saying which, because I  don't want to influence the voting. I have a few more entries to go, but if you emailed or posted (and sent me your link) as of Thursday evening, you should be able to see your faces, if not, please email me at twinkietinydog (@)

One of the contestant's parents sent me a lovely email I'd like to share with you. The names and locations are not included because I didn't have the author's permision:

***Representing The Center for Animal Health and Welfare (a no kill shelter in ***), here’s formerly homeless [dog's name].  Even though [dog's name] ended up at the shelter through no fault of her own (her family was moving and could not take her…BOO!), she retained her sense of humor.  [dog's name] hopped into the driver’s seat and proceeding to toss me a raspberry when I told her she was not driving us back from an off-site meet and greet.

[Dog's name] was a volunteer favorite due to her sweet nature and once we got her out strutting her stuff at a number of off-site events, she ended up with multiple families wanting to take her home…..she’s no longer homeless!

[Dog's name] would love her “still waiting” furiends to benefit from her tongue!***

I was so touched to see this email! As you already know, I am a rescue dog myself and one of my main missions through my blog is to increase awareness.

Have a lovely rest of the National Dog Week!

Wow, there are so many entries - we are so impressed! Of course, we do need to drop you an email because you missed one very important member of the family - of everyone I can't belive it is this one that is missing! Mom will have to send you an email when she gets a chance - we just popped in to say a quick HELLO and saw that the new link was there - so it will be a while (maybe you will figure it out - we know that M is a fan!)

We have seen so many entries all over blogville - it is a great contest despite all the work you have to do. We didn't enter, but you know why:)

Enjoy the weekend.

Whew! No wonder you're yawning there, Twinkie! You've been swamped by tongues! How's anybuddy ever gonna choose? HOW!? What if there's a 200-way tie? What if everybuddy looks at my picture and laughs? Or worse! What if they DON'T?

I dunno. This contest is stressing me out a little bit. I hope you can hold it together better than me.

Not at woo...

Along with Mango's wise words!


Dexter said...

Holy crap Twinkie! That is impressive. Totally over 100 entries just in the first part of the alphabets! I got almost dizzy looking at all those photos. Plus you made a little tab thing on your blog? Now that is more than the Mango can do. Must be a lot of synapses firing in that little head of yours.


Lorenza said...

I hope you can see it in my blog!

Holy Tongues, Twinkie! That's a LOT of tongues!!! And a lot of work!!! And Abby is first - heehee! Now EVERYONE can see what a doofus my sister is! We are super-impressed with all the tongues in the bloggie world, and your ability to herd them all, so to speak! You must be EXHAUSTED!!! Thanks for including TaiChi, too, BTW. (Besides, the rules didn't specify which side of the Bridge the entrants had to be on...) Good luck and thanks for all your hard work!

Those are some mighty talented tongues! The judges are gonna have a hard decided on just one, that's for sure. They all look like winners!
It's so much fun to see so many of our blogging furiends all in one place. You must have been working double overtime on this, Twinkie :)
