What Are Your Pets Wearing for the Holidays Photo Contest is a success! Well, it's a success because thousands looked at the 80 uploaded photos of your pets. And that means thousands of smiles. Really you can't look at this gallery without smiling, probably your serotonin also gets a free boost. You feel good. It's what happens when you look at pets.
My job was one of the most challenging of my career - if not nearly impossible....that's choose six photos which now YOU will vote to determine THE MOST FESTIVE PET.
All the 80 pets uploaded were darn cute....including the hamster and hedgehog....and appreciate all the entries. Still, how do you narrow this amazing group to six images? I couldn't do it alone - too daunting, too much pressure for one pet reporter, so I enlisted help, from my wife Robin and my sister Lori.
So, here they are - the six nominees, the best of the best. Now you vote!
You know what they say about the Internet, it's the Wild West - so what the heck, vote early and often, enlist friends and relatives, neighbors, inmates, co-workers (inmates and co-workers may be one in the same), whoever you like.
There can only be one pet deemed - by you - the most festive! That winner will appear on a WGN Radio Petcast with me, and also a donation will be made in the winning pet's name to the Tree House Humane Society in Chicago.
Now, may the best pet win!
