Here they Are America Your Top 20 Whippet Idol Contestants

81 girls and 80 boys was the final count of contestants at the open casting auditions. Contestants were sorted by sex and names were placed in food bowls. Names were mixed 20 times to the left, 20 times to the right, and tossed about randomly for 20 seconds. A short break was taken to kill a stuffed toy and then the drawing of the names began. The accounting firm of Pixie & Bug, LLC oversaw the entire process. (I have some photos but Blogger is not letting me upload them right now.)

Here are the top 10 boys and the top 10 girls. There are also 3 alternate boys and 3 alternate girls in case any of the top 20 have to drop out. They are in order of how they were drawn.

  2. Ace
  3. George
  4. Pistol
  5. Panther (yes, this is Bug's Dad but he will get no preferential treatment)
  6. Wager

Next Steps -

All whippets mentioned above need to send in a photo (head shot preferred, jpeg please and not a huge file size) and a very short essay (50 words or less) answering the following question: What makes you a Whippet Idol?

Please send to whipknits @ gmail. com (remove spaces). All photos and essays must be received by Wednesday, March 12th Midnight EST. If for some reason you have decided not to participate, please let me know so that an alternate can be chosen. Photos and essays will be posted on Thursday and voting will begin (details to follow).

Thanks everyone for participating and we are looking forward to a fun contest.

Hi Ladybug,
Sorry I missed out but at least I can uncross my paws & go for a walk now, not that we can go far, it's blowing a gale & raining here!

You'd have loved my ears!
