Thanks to all who participated in our first ever Weekend Dog Blogging/Food Contest. I am sure glad I didn’t have to vote, although if I did, Bailey and his beautiful green bean would have been tugging on my heartstrings. All the dogs are simply adorable!
Although there was a huge surge for Mr. Hugo at the end, a lot of those votes came after the midnight deadline, and could not be counted; that means the winner is Lady from Live, Laugh, Love. Congratulations! Judging by the photo submitted, I think Lady was definitely appropriately named, and what a way to celebrate a birthday!
More contests in the future, with the next one in February, so be sure to stay tuned for that.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t address the anonymous poster who was concerned about the food used in the pictures submitted. Although I can’t speak directly for entrants, I am sure most of the food was used as pure prop placement for the contest, and all these dog owners are responsible and know the dangers of specific foods for their pets. They would never put their pet in harm’s way for a little contest. :)
No dinner report tonight … The Husband surprised me and made dinner tonight, which was a wonderful treat. I went to the doctor again this morning, since I’m still not feeling much better, and got some more meds, so coming home to a homecooked, unexpected Cuban meal of Picadillo with Black Beans and Rice sure hit the spot.
Keeping the post short tonight, because I’m going to call it an early night. Have dinner all planned for tomorrow, so you’ll have to tune in then to see how cumin and goat cheese make their way to our dinner table.
