Voting started today and goes until July 26th. You can vote once a day, so you can vote for different shelters each day, or give lots of votes to one!

I voted for the Austin Humane Society, as Sophie and I are both from there. Who will you vote for?

Bling Contest – The Winners

Filed under: Contests, Pictures — FF @ 9:18 AM

Yes, winners, plural. Originally there was only going to be one winner, but SO many animals participated and they all did such a wonderful job, I’ve decided to choose a grand prize winner and a runner up! The grand prize winner will get $20 in prizes and the runner up will get $10 in prizes.

First, I’d like to thank @emmythecat and @fergusthedog for helping me judge. It was a long and tedious process (thanks to Twitter exploding last night), but our decisions were UNANIMOUS! How often does that happen?

Without further ado…

First Runner Up – @PerrytheBirman!

That's one cool cat...I mean bunny!

And, the moment you’ve all been waiting for!

The Grand Prize Winner – @LacyDog!

What a great bunny pose!  Marvelous effort =).

All three judges were greatly impressed with Lacy’s bunny pose – it really made the bling picture stand out.

Thank you to ALL who participated. It was great fun seeing all the animals dressed up! I’ll leave you with a list of honorable mentions – those who made it to the final round of judging:
