Contestant #49


Funny Trait:

"Gremlin is a rescue pup who makes up in personality what he might lack in good looks- yes, he's aptly named, but his mommy loves his face! Gremlin is our sweet clown. He likes to hold "paws" with me when we sleep, he plays "bucking bronco" with pieces of his food- throwing them up in the air and bucking around to catch them, and the best- he throws his head back and howls like Chewbacca when he really wants to make a point. Really- I'm not kidding- he sounds exactly like Chewie!"

Contestant #48


Funny Trait:

"Poppy, kept the irrepressible spirit of Puppy in all her life. One of her most endearing traits was cuddling up to bed a toy under her foreleg."

Contestant #47


Funny Trait:

"That Polka Dotted Tongue can go 100 Miles per hour when she kisses:)"

Contestant #46


Funny Trait:

"Moxie's nickname is "Mr. Socks." not just because of thelovely white markings on his legs - he steals socks from the hamper atleast once a day and hides them in his plush donut bed like a caninemagpie. He also tries to tug socks off my boyfriend and myself whenwe're sitting down putting them on in an attempt to get us to stayhome with him. (He knows socks+shoes=someone leaving the house, smart dog.)"

Contestant #45


Funny Trait:

"this is my boston Dixie. Her nick name is "chicken" So she's a Dixie Chicken! Here she is, wearing her halloween costume :D"

Contestant #44


Funny Trait:

"This is Rose sitting on her cart. She loves it cause the sun comes in through the stained glass panel and warms her while making her even more beautiful. Also, the cart is the perfect petting height. In case we don't notice her, she reaches out and grabs us as we try to walk by. We must stop and pet her and tell her she's the most beautiful cat in the house (hopefully the other five don't hear)."

Contestant #43


Funny Trait:

"Persephone was a stray I rescued about 9 years ago. She eats wet food using her paw as a spoon, and her favorite spot to sit and birdwatch is in the nearest open window."

Contestant #41


Funny Trait:

"Gremlin is our 2 year old rescued American Pit Bull. She is not very ladylike and loves to shred cardboard."

Contestant #39


Funny Trait:

"She doesn't play fetch, instead she plays keep away."

Contestant #38


Funny Trait:

"We have to lock her in the bedroom when my guy wants to watch dinosaur shows. She watches raptors on TV, crouches down, and starts
imitating them- right down to ruffling her butt fur the way they ruffle their feathers! And then she goes to hunt the other two cats. Silly raptorcat!

Contestant #37


Funny Trait:

"Flash is a 4 yr. old male beagle who got his name from his constant running, aka "flashing" through the house when he was a pup. Now, we have thought of changing his name to "Snooze" since that has become his favorite pastime! You can usually find Flash napping on the couch, armchair, or one of his 2 people boys' beds. His favorite snooze spot is the living room sofa, on my vintage needlepoint pillows, which we call his "two-pillow nest.""

Contestant #34


Funny Trait:

"When this wee girl first found us, she was in such bad condition. Half starved, covered in ticks, a big scratch on her cornea, we just had to keep her! She also came with her own bag of tricks. She taught herself to sit up, roll over, dance on two legs and leap around while spinning. She brought joy into our lives."

Contestant #33


Funny Trait:

"Every night before bed, she will not lay down until I brush her teeth. She waits patiently on the toilet until I come in to do it. It's a good thing she gets her teeth brushed all the time, because she loves to give everyone kisses!!"

Contestant #32

My hobbies include rolling in my sand bowl, running tandem in the wheel (though sis would rather run alone), hiding in cardboard tubes, getting snacks from Maman (or anyone else for that matter), and napping (with sis as a pillow, of course)."

Contestant #31


Funny Trait:

"He thinks it is funny to take anyones spot on the couch when they get up. Or my pillow in the middle of the night when I get up to use the bathroom I will go to lay back down and there's Tank laying with his head on my pillow. "

Funny Trait:

"Miyamoto is an English Bulldog with the cutest face on the planet."

Contestant #29


Funny Trait:

"Daisy is a "freerange" dog who spends most of her days (when it's nice) outside. She's a muttly mutt from a local shelter; a Smooth Collie/some-kind-of-Terrier? mix. You wouldn't think it to look at her, but she LOVES hunting small animals, and can catch a rabbit quicker than you realize what's happening. Greatest dog in the WORLD!"

Contestant #27


Funny Trait:

"We rescued her and her sister Belle from the local shelter. It was pretty difficult to get a picture of just her, because they are inseperable!"
