Pet Madness



Published:

Drum roll please... the winners of our Third Annual Pet Madness contest is... Duke!

 

Duke

Congratulations to Wendy Lu from San Jose who wins a $100 gift certificate from our sponsor Dog Bone Alley pet store in Danville and Alameda. Here's a description of this high-flying squirt in Wendy's own words:

"Duke embodies the true spirit of man's best friend: unconditionally loving, extremely smart and talented (he's won 4 Bay Area Talent Contests), and an awesome partner in canine agility, all wrapped up in a furry 6 pound package. He brings a smile to everyone who meets him!"



Coming in second place (within a whisker of the top spot) is Sadie, the striped-socked terrier!

Congratulations to Samantha Hagar from Walnut Creek who wins a $50 certificate to Dog Bone Alley. Says Samantha's of Sadie: "she's the best because whenever I look at her, she makes me smile." 



And rounding out the Final Four winners are our third and fourth place finishers...
Woodstock the Basset Hound and Dexter the cat!

Congratulations to Alameda's Nanci Rider, the owner of the droopy-faced Woodstock and San Ramon's Jackie Harbour, owner of the comely Dexter—each wins a $25 gift certificate to Dog Bone Alley.

Says Rider of "the Am-Basset-or of fun" Woodstock: "Woody was born in a puppy mill in Nebraska in 2003. My partner Rik, who was inexperienced about reputable breeders found him in the newspaper. He was just trying to mend my broken heart a week after losing Linus, our Basset Mix. Woody was underweight, had pneumonia and was full of parasites inside and out. We nursed him back to health and he grew into a handsome boy! He's gentle and kind and the biggest goofball ever!"

And Harbour of Dexter: "Dexter came into our life after our 20 year old cat passed away. He helped us move on and help me (Jackie) heal from the loss of a long time friend. Dexter is a lovey boy and very fun, plus he acts like a dog....he eats everything!"


Finally, we just want to thank everyone who entered our contest. It was a pleasure finding so many adorable photos in our in-box each day—your enthusiasm made this year's contest the biggest one yet.
