May 11, 2012

Voting for the first round is CLOSED.
The top 5 will be posted tomorrow.
Please come back tomorrow (Tuesday)
to vote for your favorite in the finals!
========  
It's time for the 
"I'm so beautifully handsome,
they should make a book
just about me" contest!


Will YOU win??
(Well, obviously if you didn't
send in a picture, you won't win.
Don't blame me.
Talk to your peoples!)

Yes, someone is going to win a magnificents picture book,
ALL ABOUT THEM.  But we had so many wonderful-est pictures, it is going to be really hard to decide which one wins.  So, I'm going to ask the Tall Guy to explain how we are going to pick the winner.  

Take it away, Tall Guy.  And then bring me a cookie!

TG:  Thank you, Bobby and Cissy!*  As Jack said, we received so many great pictures, we are going to have to have a run-off.  The first round of the contest will last until 5:00 PM, Monday, May 14.  You can vote for 5 of your favorite pictures.  (You have to be honest and not vote for more than 5.)  You can vote by selecting your choice(s) in the box on the right.  After the end of the first round, we will tally the votes, and the top FIVE who have received the most votes** will go into the finals.  You will then be able to vote for your favorite.  So remember, vote for your top 5 between now and Monday.  And you've already had 2 cookies today, so no more cookies until bedtime!  (That last sentence was meant for Jack.  Everyone else can have as many cookies as they want!  Unless they don't have any cookies in their house.  Then I guess they'll have to go to the grocery store if they want a cookie!)

Jack:  Thank you, Tall Guy, and who-the-heck-ever Bobby and Cissy are.  This is more exciting than the Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes and the HGTV Home Giveaway all rolled into one!  So here are our contestants, in the order that they were received:

    i want to vote for every single one! i love them all.
    except... #14? is that a horse with only part of his neck showing and a back leg? or is it a dog crawled up into a backpack with his tail hanging out? LOL.

  12. I wish they had names. I like to be able to put names with the furry faces. Woff Esp, who is the sheepdog with all the llamas? Is he a moviestardog? a modeldog? workerdog? I'd like to know his story. BOL And is that horsie being horse-napped?

  15. This was most difficult. All of the entries are good, and many are outstanding. After viewing the first entries, we were beginning to wonder if this contest was opened only to Labs and Goldens, clearly two of the most popular breeds in the contest.

    Yes, mama remembers Bob & Cissy. We have old people, Jack.

  19. That's no problem, Jack! This contest is a riot, and as Madi and her Mom said, we are all very appreciative of everything TG has done to host it...all of the entries are adorable. I wish I could take each of the animals home with me.

    Your friend,

  21. Well, congrats - we're confused. When we came back to vote again [we just love a system where you get to vote early and often :)], we read the new disclaimer. But then we saw that our check marks from last time were still checked. We weren't sure if that meant our first vote had not been counted and you were giving us another chance to change our minds, or what. So we voted again [no changes]. Hope that's not a problem.
