Summer Competition Winner!!

 Well friends, after a month of beautiful photographs showing you all enjoying your Summer days, we finally have a winner! Thank you all for voting, we had lots of votes and I hope you all agree it was a fair contest. Would you believe there was just ONE vote between 1st and 2nd but I'm happy to report that each and every photo got a ton of votes, they were so close.

Anyway to the winner...who is...

PIP!!!!!!!!What a fantastic photograph of a thoughtful Pip in Northern Ireland
A prize personal to Pip will be winging its way to Northern Ireland in the next week. The three runners up also have a personal prize on the way to them, I'll show them in a couple of weeks when they've all been sent out.

Anyway we thought we'd celebrate this huge photo party by posting all of the Blog Land Summer Photo's for your enjoyment. Click on the pic for a larger image

We hope we got everyone, Blogger is playing silly games and keeps losing the photo's as we post them...grrrrr. Little note to Miss Sugar that we couldn't get linky to work - we didn't forget you :-)

That's that for now then folks, we really enjoyed having this fun contest. We suggested that we might have a barking contest because then a Schnauzer would be bound to win...and come second, third... hee hee. Love to all, Dex and Lou

hey Dexter and Louis,

Congratulations to Pip! It is such a wonderful photo, and Pip looks stunning in it! Yay Pip!

As other pups have expressed, all the photos were pawsome! It just goes to show you how incredibly clever and creative us pups are! Even during the hot Summer days!

Please don't have a barking contest because I don't bark (only about twice a year). But I do howl! Perhaps you can have a combination howling - barking contest, then I would win! BOL! Ummm...I mean HOL! :->

Thanks for all you lovely comments, we have been trying to get hold of Pip but he must be too busy on the farm as we haven't heard back from him. We loved hosting the contest and hope it's the first of many! Dex and Lou xxx

That is a really nice picture and congratulations to Pip! Personally, I like Bert among the yellow daisies, so summer and picturesque. But (sob, sob), Coco sent a picture but it didn't even come out??? Did her Mommi send it to the wrong address? Coco insist that you have another photo competition!!!!

Congratulations to Pip! Loved seeing all the photos again - what a wonderful collection of dogs enjoying the summer around the world! A barking contest sounds like a great idea - schnauzers would win paws down :-) Love from Magic xx
