I have collected 45 photos of your wonderful, happy pets and I DON'T KNOW WHAT I WAS THINKING WHEN I SAID I COULD PICK MY FAVORITES! [sigh] But I did (based on how well the photo and caption demonstrates a true moment of pet joy). And so after a long, painful process, I got the number down to 17. [sigh] :)
And now, without further ado, here they are (in no particular order).*
(Note: I've decided - to help level the field - NOT to list pet's or owner's names while voting is open. I will share that information after I announce a winner on Nov. 2.)
Hints for viewing photos in more detail:
- Click the first photo (once) to activate a slide show in Blogger.
- Click the photo a second time to scroll.
- Record the 'numbers' for your favorite(s) (up to five).
- Click the 'X' to return to this blog post.
Are you ready to vote?!
- Use the poll (below) to vote for up to five of your favorites.
- Each person may only complete the poll once (so send your friends and relatives).
- The poll will close at 11:59 p.m. Eastern (US) Time on Oct. 31.
- The reader who submitted the photo with the most votes wins a $25 donation to a shelter/rescue organization of choice (and eternal bragging rights). :)
*If you don't see your photo here, it's not because I didn't LOVE it! Remember, I will post "honorable mentions" the week of Nov. 2.
