Over 150 wonderful whippets entered the contest - through the random drawing from the food bowl I narrowed it down to our Top 20 - essays were written and your votes chose the Top 10 - fun bios were submitted and the voting began again. The campaigning for votes was fast and furious - old friends were contacted and new friends were made. Like all contests we had some ups and downs - x-rated photos of Tiny Trish were discovered on the Internet, some voting irregularities occurred, and lawyers were consulted. But we carried on and here are your results:
Introducing your whippet idols for 2008, drum roll please........
George and Snickers - a big congratulations to both of these awesome whippets and their families.
And similar to the turtle prize at race meets, I would also like to announce that the two whippets with the lowest amount of votes will also be receiving prizes. The winners of the bug prize (squeaky stuffed bugs) are: Ace and Jitterbug.
Thanks to all who participated. The four winners need to send their address to me at whipknits @ gmail. com (remove spaces) so I can have my Mom send out the prizes.
