We won!!

Who ever said that blogging was an unproductive use of time has never spent time in the "dogs with blogs" circle!  We entered a contest that was put on by Sugar the bull terrier & her mom, Martine.  To enter, one had to submit a pictures of their dog in a "compromising position" - basically somewhere they don't belong.  With Brutus around, it wasn't a matter of finding a picture - the challenge was picking the best one to enter!!

Despite some stiff competition (including a bull terrier peeking out of a clothes dryer), Brutus was chosen as the winner for his "Can you find the Frenchie" picture.  Our prize for winning was a $50 gift certificate to a really cool custom-collar site, Collar Mania.  We already picked out our new collars; Brutus will have quite the collection of chain martingales now!  And they said blogging would never pay off - ha!  Thanks again to Martine, who engineered & financed the contest - you are the best!

It was already the subject of blog post early last month, I'll include it again just 'cuz it's so darn adorable (so I guess this serves as a "Fave Friday" post as well).  So here is The Brute, surrounded by all his fabulous squishies!

The award-winning photo!

Another cute shot - classic Brutus!!

Hi Brutus, congratulations on winning you look so cool in your picture. I like to hide in my stuffies so my Mom can't find me and give me a bath. Happy 4th of July
