I won, I won!

Winning Photo

Yeah!!!  I won, I won!  I actually entered a photo contest, made it to the finals and won!  I am so excited!  I want to thank my mommy for taking my picture and helping me submit it to facebook, my family and all my 2 and 4 legged friends, fans and followers for voting for me!  I really have a great crowd behind me and I truly appreciate each and every one of you!  My Kuvasz sister Katie usually wins all the photo contests because humans are looking for beautiful dogs and that she is indeed.  She is even in a calendar this year because she is so pretty.  I’m the family cutie, but

Checking to see if I am really the winner!

most contests are not looking for a goofball so I never win until TODAY!

The finals were pretty intense.  I got some votes fairly quickly but then others were gaining on me so I had to really ask all my family and friends to vote or I would not have won.  I had a great lead Sunday night but then they extended the deadline for a day and that is where it got a bit furry.  I worked really hard while mom was at the office getting all my pals to like my picture.  When I went to bed I did not know what would happen.  When I got up Tuesday

Checking Troy’s Online on fb to see what I won.

morning mom told me to check my facebook page on the ipad so I did.  I did not think I was reading right so I got my nose right up to the screen to be sure and yes I had won.  I was so excited!

We had to go for our walk and eat breakfast and then I decided to take my time and look into things.  First I went to Troy’s Online as they sponsored the contest.  I wanted to see what they posted and get my instructions for claiming my prize.  Since this is serious

Getting ready to pick out my new collar!

business I decided to use the desktop computer with the big monitor so I could see everything better.

Next I went to UpCountry Inc to pick out my new collar.  I was so excited as we have so many collars from them.  They have totally fun designs for any dog or cat!  It was really hard to choose, but I narrowed it down to three and then asked mom for her opinion.  Together we decided on a new design called “sweetie”.  It is fun and summery and I can share it with my

My new collar!

sister if she wants to wear it sometimes as it will look great on both of us!  I placed the order and should have in within a week I think!  I will post a photo of me with it on once it arrives, but in the meantime I am posting a snapshot of it from their website.  Many many paw hugs to my supporters that voted for me, winning a contest is so much fun!  PS – you can’t tell really in my photos because my floppy ears are covering it but I am wearing an UpCountry collar right now, pretty green with squirrels all over it, one of my favs!
