And the Prize for Best Looking Pet Goes to...
It was a close race, but one pet came away victorious.
More than 155 Patch readers had input and there were 81 submissions for the best looking pet in the area.
In the end, though, only one pet came away with the prize.
Congratulations to Nutmeg McBride (the Griffichon in photo 17) and to its owner for receiving the most votes (50) and being chosen by the Patch staff as the winner. For uploading this phto, David Wisholeck will receive a $50 gift card, plus bragging rights (please email email@example.com for more info on how to claim your prize).
Runners up (no prizes, just bragging rights) included Noli (#28), who gave such a serious look; Danno (#28), who got dressed up for the occasion; Leo (#3), with his over-the-sholder high school yearbook pose; and the beautiful Harley Quinn (#9),
All of the entries were great. Thanks for taking the time to upload and vote in the comments section (Take a look at all the entries here).
