    Parents of Meeko! Are you on here?

    My husband and I adopted a dog from the shelter almost a year ago, and we still cannot figure out what he is. But Meeko looks just like our dog! Do you know what Meeko is? It would be helpful to know our dog’s breed/breed mix, so we can be better prepared for health issues. The vet just had to guess!

    Our dog’s name is Rohan. There are lots of pictures of him at http://www.twitter.com/rohanlepetit. He was also pictured in a “On A Walk” here on Friday Puppy this summer: http://www.troyinteractivemetrics.com/fp_dev1/index.php/2011/07/15/on-a-walk-state-street-albany-13/

    Thanks for any tips you have! :)

    The dog in a boot is just rediculas. who the hell thought of that? way to go moxie looking spiffy :) keep voting moxie

  • Dan McDonald
    Dec 19, 2011 at 8:42 am

    Wow whats up with all the moxie love? not even half as cute as the other dogs on here. Have to go for Bailey, so cute its ridiculous! Reminds me of Super Mario Bros. 3

  • Gina
    Dec 19, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Moxie is definately a winnner first and foremost that dog can smile.
    That dog looks like a winner in my book.
    The dog first of all has personality.. which anyone can stick a dog on a couch or in a boot .. so comeon man.. dont vote for the little one that got shuved in a boot. or put on a couch to pose.. go with originality.. the one with the smile..

  • gina
    Dec 19, 2011 at 10:46 am

    Man that;s the way to go Moxie! You are going to be the best looking dog this week.. even lil bear is a cutie! but moxie, you are special.. you can smile..

  • gina
    Dec 19, 2011 at 11:04 am

    Moxie is the best dog going .. that dog can smile! U have to feel sorry for the dog in the boot. That poor dog is womdering what did I do wrong that they stuck me in this boot.
    the other dog on here Meko looks like the dog is all head..
    must be the shirt.
    Labs look nice but they need something..
    Even Lil Bear has something not quite sure yet but at least he is looking right at the camera.. I guess you call it originallity..

    Dec 19, 2011 at 11:53 am

    any chance of shoving Gina and Clarissa in a boot?

  • Bubba
    Dec 19, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    seems like someone is on here voting more then once a day…. vote moxie!

  • Pearl
    Dec 19, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    Yeah looks like that dog in the boot is cheating.. they seem to be voting every few seconds. I was just checking out the votes and it just kept going up and up..
    Your not a winner if you are cheating..

  • tommy
    Dec 19, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Hey plankton… ahhh any chance you can not be a jerk? that would be pretty cool im just giving my input.. so what you scared that you might loose? and even if u loose its only a gift card.. let the people vote god damn it!

  • Mary
    Dec 19, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    First of all every body has their own opinion of what cute is. Why should everyone vote one way or the other. We can vote however we want. I’m sure each puppies owner is asking help from family and friends for votes. It sure does seem like within a couple of hours Bailey made it back to the top so either her mom has no life or shes begging for votes.I say Moxie and Lil’ Bear are the cutest!!!

  • Dan McDonald
    Dec 19, 2011 at 4:02 pm

    Wow Gina, seems you have some sort of bet on this lol. and just because you see the dogs teeth doesn’t mean its smiling. I’ve seen plenty of dogs teeth before people get bitten, not once do i say “aww how cute he’s smiling, that sure is personality” :p. anyone can stick a camera right in a dogs face and have it give you that “wtf is she doing face”.

  • JR
    Dec 19, 2011 at 5:10 pm

    Yeah that dog bailey and it’s owner is totally cheating!! If you have a dog and its getting more votes then the writer of a fairly popular blog on the website of the largest newspaper who mentions it on her blog to vote, must be foul play afoot. Owner must be cheating huh? And if using a boot is a cheap trick what do you call putting a dog in a fabulous cravat ;) ?

  • Edna
    Dec 19, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    Wow,I wish someone would put ME in a boot(filled with Bitburger,of course).

  • Pearl
    Dec 19, 2011 at 6:22 pm

    Dan, Appears that you really have something at stake with your choice. I just want to say good luck to you! So which one is yours the one with the orginal idea of the dog in the boot. I bet! That wouldn’t happen to be your boot would it?
    That doesn’t seem like a man’s dog to me. Not very manly their Danny boy!

  • Gina
    Dec 19, 2011 at 6:29 pm

    Thanks Pearl, I can handle this all on my own. Apprently he thinks he has the only dog that is cute. Everyone doesn’t see it that way .. but then again.. I guess you have to give people a hard time to make them see things your way.
    I tend to go for the dog with the smile. that;s my choice and I am sticking with it,
    Sounds like Danny is in need of that certificate. and bragging rights to the cutiest dog for the week.
    It might make him a man.after all.

  • Heather
    Dec 19, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    @ Gina what does rediculas mean? And Shuving? ANYONE!??

    Spell Check is a WONDERFUL Invention!!!! :)

    P.S. Bailey is RIDICULOUSLY CUTE!!!!!


  • Heather
    Dec 19, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    It’s called facebook and social networking. If that is considered cheating then is having a blog where you can tell thousands of readers to vote cheating too?


  • Heather
    Dec 19, 2011 at 7:24 pm

    Oh and bashing other dogs on Twitter because they are ahead? Sounds like someone is being a sore LOSER!!!

    AmandaTalar Amanda Talar
    Thx! #notevenadog :) @alissaerin Voted for Moxie! If Bailey wins it’s bc he/she fits in a boot #notfair #shouldbedisqualified

    @ Jennifer: Meeko is a full bred Long-haired Chihuahua. I guess I have to get on my game and let my friends and family know that Meeko is on here! What a bad Daddy :(! It seems like a lost hope, but hopefully not!

    Dec 19, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    Wait, people are cheating on Friday Puppy. Then it’s official, the end times are here and we all better be nice to Tim Tebow. I was really looking forward to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo too. Now I’ll have to hope it is being shown on my trip to hell.

  • Jenna
    Dec 19, 2011 at 8:24 pm

    I don’t know about “Danny boy”, but I have invested interest in a dog in the race, but that doesn’t mean I would go online to bash other people’s dogs or tell people they are cheating just because they happen to be winning. Very mature of all of you. Way to go.

  • Amanda Talar
    Dec 19, 2011 at 8:31 pm

    Awww, I wouldn’t have put it on my blog or Twitter if I was worried someone would find it, Heather. ;) I’m actually surprised it took this long for someone to bring that up! But, I do think your comment #37 to Gina is pretty freaking rude.

    No one is cheating — in fact, I think that’s impossible with the way it’s set up.

    !!!!!!!!!!!! There, I caught up with you.

    Go puppies!

  • patrick
    Dec 19, 2011 at 8:53 pm

    JR, not cheating just fighting fire with fire. Bailey’s uncle works for the biggest newspaper in New Jersey. Has very loyal followers. And I have it on good authority that Bailey voted for Meeko!

  • Salvador Dali Lama
    Dec 19, 2011 at 9:02 pm

    I will buy ALL of you a gift certificates to Bomber’s if you just stop fighting over whose dog is cuter!

  • talula
    Dec 19, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Come on, that dog bailey is cute. And whats the deal with dissing the boot? its a great picture. all these dogs are cute but bailey’s is the cutest. had to throw my vote to her.

  • Ann
    Dec 19, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    I’m voting for Bailey, a little puppy in a boot is absolutely adorable and if you all saw it on a calendar you would probably all think she was a cutey. I think all the dogs are cute, they’re puppies-how could they not be cute? I’m just partial to cute boots and puppies :)

  • Kate
    Dec 19, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    Oh my God!! Salvador Dali Lama – I will split the cost of the Bomber’s gift certificates with you just so I don’t have to read anything more about the freaking boot! (Or the fighting or bashing…)

    I went with the labs, because THEY are the cutest…

  • Gina
    Dec 19, 2011 at 10:47 pm

    Hay Heather and Jenna, I bet the dog does look better then u both.
    BY any chance any of you own Danny Boy.. cause he seems to like dogs.

  • Mel
    Dec 19, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    Wow! Really people? You’re to be voting for the cutest puppy here…not bashing puppies because of what they might look like or because you think they are “cheating!” All for what? A Bomber’s gift certificate?
    Every single puppy on here is cute and seems to have some sort of prop/clothing/accessory in their picture. Why have they then not all been accused of cheating? If you are going to accuse Bailey’s owner of cheating than why not accuse Charlie’s owner of cheating because of the Santa hat? Or Meeko’s owner of cheating because of the Def Leopard shirt? Or Does it not matter because they aren’t beating Moxie?

    No Gina i honestly can say I’m not the owner of Bailry. But by the frequency, hostility, and sheer oddness of your posts i would have to assume (in order of least likely to more likely):

    1). Owner or unstable friend of owner of moxie
    2). Moxie herself writing under a pseudonym.
    3). (being most likely) cdpc has Internet access for its patients.

  • Heather
    Dec 20, 2011 at 10:13 am

  • Pearl
    Dec 20, 2011 at 10:46 am

    Jenna, I think you can save your hugs. Gina wouldn’t take to a stranger hugging her. Nice gesture thou.
    I think all of you are so up tight about winning this thing. You have to be nuts. Do you realize that the dogs have no idea they are being shown and are competeing at all.
    They dont’ care one bit if they loose and If you really loved your dog you wouldn’t subject yourselves to this stuff on line. Not everyone thinks alike! Isn’t that what makes the world go around..
    I have to admit the dog in the boot is not too original. as far as your dog.. to me it looks like a mouse more then a dog popping its head out of a large boot.
    The dog looks more like it is scared.then anything else.
    The boot doesn’t even look good. I guess it is all in the way you set up your picture. U should get the prize for :
    No origianlity Jenna.

    Maybe if you put more thought in your picture your dog would come off as a dog and your dog would come off with a smile.
    .. You can
    tell your friends Heather and Dan, that they can stop with the coments to my friend too. No need to be nasty now. Heather has quite a temper and Dan really needs to cool it with the gestures. Gina is the friend that everyone needs to have. She is a really good person. She just is open minded and tells things like they are, much like me.. If she was able to be here today.. she would tell you both that their was no need to be saying rude things to her at all. She just disagrees with your dog and your picture much like me.
    She happens to think that Moxie has personality..and is smiling along with the rest of us..So what is so wrong with that?
    Dan got on here and posted “what is with all the moxie love?” Not everyone thinks alike.. get it Dan..
    People have their own views and are entitled to them.. Get it.. and Jenna
    I hope you have learned a lesson Oh by the way.. Dan, seems to be a stand up guy.. but a bit of a panzy. Just saying..
    NIce that you have friends that do your dirty work for you Jenna.! and my last and final thought for the day. Jenna you need to get a life..

  • Jenna
    Dec 20, 2011 at 11:00 am

    I think you need to look in the mirror next time you tell someone to get a life.

  • Pearl
    Dec 20, 2011 at 11:11 am

    Dear Jenna I do have a life.. Husband, children and a dog.. Can you say the same.

  • Sheryl
    Dec 20, 2011 at 11:23 am

    This is all pretty ridiculous. I’m pretty sure the dogs could care less whether their owner receives a gift certificate to Bomber’s!! If everyone could PLEASE just vote for the dogs, isn’t that what this is really all about? Who effing cares which one wins? All of them are cute!!! SO what if the one dog is in a boot, or another one gets more votes? The personal insults and all of this bickering nonsense is very unneccessary. GROW UP!!!

  • Confused
    Dec 20, 2011 at 11:29 am

    People … it’s Christmas … be nice!

    You don’t have to knock a pooch (or owner) down in effort to support your vote.

    All the dogs hear are adorable.

  • Pearl
    Dec 20, 2011 at 11:30 am

    Didn’t think so!

  • Dan
    Dec 20, 2011 at 12:05 pm

    Lol. Pearl / Gina *Cough* same person *Cough* sorry Gina can’t be here today, forget to take your/her meds today, and Pearl manifests? So much hostility in you. : p Anything said as rude comment was in response to “her” rude posts. I think you have beat that a dog in a boot is not original like a dead horse. But before you presuppose that it’s not original, take a look at past contests and even this current one. How many dogs in a boot and how many just looking (yes just looking) at the camera. . . .Right! One dog in a boot. There you have what is called empirical evidence, so that has been laid to rest.

    Besides, it’s not about originality. It’s about a cute puppy. And I agree it’s about opinion. Then you bash me for saying “what’s with all the moxie love, I think bailey is cuter” statement, as not respecting others opinions. But guess what I was doing? . . . .That’s right!!!! I was expressing my opinion, Dip $hit! Get it . . . . Pearl …Gina . . . Gearl. . .Pina, whatever you want to call yourself.

    And the funny thing is you or “Gina” calling someone out on their looks (i.e. calling them dogs) lol. Lets have them post photos of themselves and you can post a picture of yourself and we’ll see who looks better my money would be on them on their worse day and your best day, and just a side note on that, I don’t think people will think your under bite, like moxie’s, equals better looks and a personality and think you are more attractive. Your long winded posts just sound sad. I know, me saying that your post is long-winded while posting this shows a little cognitive dissonance but I had to respond in kind. I get the picture of the ending of the movie “catfish” when I picture you posting here.

    And to the point of how you “ladies” keep demeaning my “manliness”, I’m more man then you can ever handle, unless of course you’re more man then I can handle “ladies”, but judging just from your posts I wouldn’t want to get within 100 yards of you on my most desperate nights. I would just heat up a bagel in the microwave. And please, know the blog you’re posting on before you make veiled comments questioning a male’s sexuality. Keep your bigoted snide comments in your head between your personalities.

    Well “ladies” I await your inevitable responses. because even though you call others out on having no lives. . . you seem to be posting more and longer posts then anyone here . . . just saying. Have a great day.

  • Mel
    Dec 20, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    Wow, because I don’t have children and a dog, Pearl I have no life? I have my life that I enjoy very much, not your life (which isn’t for everybody). Who made you the decider of these things? You say you’re open minded but clearly your comments about what constitutes ‘a life’ show that you aren’t!
    You’re getting way to bent out of shape over a stinking cute puppy contest….ummm…..
    The internets and blogs, such crazy things… gotta love it!

  • Pearl
    Dec 20, 2011 at 12:52 pm

  • Chris
    Dec 20, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    Hahaha this has to be the funniest thred ever on FP. What is wrong with you people? I actually found another website that says that none of these dogs are cute at all. Something about boots, and smiles, and santa hats being so 2010. Weird right? And I read that online, so you know it must be true! Thanks for the entertainment folks. And please, keep it up!

  • Heather
    Dec 20, 2011 at 1:32 pm

    Pearl and Gina-
    How can you not expect Jenna’s friends to jump in and defend her? Both of you started bashing her and her dog. We are not saying that the other dogs aren’t cute or original. You both started it, so of course when her friends took note of it, they attacked back.

    As for saying my friend has no life, you could not be more wrong. I think maybe you should look at yourself and see that you are insecure. If you weren’t you wouldn’t be bashing innocent people and their dogs.

    I also think an English class would be in your best interest. I can’t even read your comments or all of them because it is too painful…

    Whoa…blog drama. Anyway, I went to vote and couldn’t because when I looked back at all the pups pics to choose my fave, I felt too sad and wanted to vote for all of them which would be basically the same as not voting at all. Bah. #runonsentencesaremyfavorite

    Dec 20, 2011 at 5:20 pm

    If people are bashing puppies on this website, or any website for that matter, someone should call the ASPCA. Pronto.

    Otherwise, Merry Christmas!

    I’m taking everyone to Baskin Robbins, only catch is you have to settle on just ONE of the delicious flavors.

    See? Easy enough.

    Full Disclosure: I voted for Moxie, she is smiling, after all. Bailey was a close second, though.

    Dec 20, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    Wow!! I was enjoying this blog & chose my pick of the bunch of what are beautiful dogs and anyone of them would be a deserved winner. It’s just a shame that some people can’t show some class and in what should be a friendly compitition. while most of the comments are just banter and mean no genuine harm, comments like the ones from pearls final ones are just nasty and have left a sour taste in my mouth. shame on you implying that because you have a husband, kids and a dog that you are somehow a better person. Maybe as a mom you’d make better use of your time showing your kids how to treat others with some respect. May the best PUPPY win, it is about them right?

    You & Gina look to be the ones who are being nasty. And you are on a website all day long bashing a dog…at 10:46am you wrote a book on here! So who needs to get a life? And your spelling….my God! Where did you go to school?

  • Heather
    Dec 20, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    I never said that I was a teacher. I am just a person who has attended English class in her life. I can’t stand to read your misspellings and incorrect word usage. Especially when you are bashing my best friend. It is hard to take you seriously when I read your comments because of it. I was just suggesting an English class to help you… I am sure everyone on here would gladly donate.

    Dec 20, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    Pearl and Gina are definitely the same person. I find it hard to believe that two separate people could confuse “Hey” with “Hay”. Talk about having no life…your life can’t be that fulfilling if you spend all day on here pretending to be two people.

  • George
    Dec 20, 2011 at 8:15 pm

    Heather noticed you didn’t confirm that you are actually a teacher.
    I bet your not girlfriend. Jenna I feel bad for you. You put your dog in this contest and no one thinks other then your friends that your dog is cute.
    Dan, I guess when your manhood is at steak you have to speak up.. but sir.. I have to tell you. I have read all the post and it sure seems to me that your friend.. maybe girlfriend is having you speak for her.Does she not have a mouth of her own.
    You and her friends seem to be saying a whole lot more then her.. and yes I am a freind of Pearl and Gina.
    Have a nice night!

    This has all been very amusing ! Heather do you think that you actually bother my friends by telling them they can’t spell .. they are just laughing all that much harder at you.
    They said to tell you, they would love to meet you at a bar sometime in downtown Albany..
    They would buy you a drink..
    bring dear heather along.. she might enjoy herself and not get so uptight about all the English..
    Gina wanted to ask you. Have you ever thought that maybe it was the typing that was a problem not so much the spelling.
    They said to tell you and heather they are all thumbs..
    Actually have to confess, we all live together and share a computer and have been laughing our asses off at you ..
    and yes we do all have jobs and are off this week..
    Merry Christmas .. and Happy New Year!

    I seem to think that you are really Gina and Pearl. I find it hard to believe that 3 people cold struggle so much with grammar and spelling.

    And NO I am not a teacher. Hence why I said I never said I was but I have taken an English class…

    My only question to you is what personality will you be tomorrow?!? Will you be Gina? Pearl? George? Maybe Jose?!?

    Wow-is this a blog about cute puppies or about the nasty hateful things people can say to each other? Based on this blog apparently I have no life because I don’t have a husband or kids at least according to Pearl. Wow, I’m hugely offended-apparently having a successful career and owning my own house (that’s right without a husband) makes me a lower value person. I’ll take my career and the fact that I own MY OWN HOUSE over her husband, kids and whatever else makes her feel superior.

    Again, this blog is supposed to be about cute puppies-not the random things that apparently some people believe define themselves.

    No we are not the same. We are definately are 3 very different people.
    We where just clowning around with you. You seem to be very uptight about your little puppy winning.
    We got that empression right off the bat with your Danny boy. When he made his little statement about what is with all the moxie love?
    We are truely sorry, If we have caused you any heartache or pain. Just lots of time on our hands this week before Christmas. Sitting around haveing a good time.But to be honest we still love Moxie. We wish you nothing but the best.
    Heather, you tend to be uptight too. Have a drink and relax. Danny boy, Sorry if we have made you angry. We just thought that we would have a good time.
    Sorry if we caused you to be so defensive about your manlyhood. So now you can be all good little girls and boy and go back to what you where doing., We have three more days left of being off from work. I want to use it to relax myself.
    I have to sober up.Too much drinking this week.
    So bye now..
    Good luck with the dog in the boot!

    I thought Pearl had a husband, children, and dog!!

    You all live together with her husband and children?!

    Seems like you are pretending to be three different people and you can’t keep them straight anymore.

    I agree with Get a Life. Clearly you can not keep up with your personalities anymore. Since I care about proper English and misspellings I am uptight? It’s more of a pet peeve that I can not stand morons who think they are better than others yet are making a fool of themself.

    I really think all 3 of your personalities need to go check into a mental ward.

    Pearl and I are here on vacation.. haven’t seen her in awhile.. but if u still think that we are one of the same that is all good.

    Dec 21, 2011 at 9:51 am

    hay we didn’t have anything better to do with our time.. shopping is all done and we ‘re just hanging.. our plane doesnt leaves till next tuesday and we just were fooling around..kids are all in school till today and then we are busy.
    We happen to stumble on to this and figure what the heck.
    Why not have some fun.
    To be perfectly honest, Gina is my sister and Pearl is my wife.

    Hey Georgy Porgy/Va-Gina/Pearl Necklace, (I know a bit sophomoric, but hey what can I say, Danny Boy has never been good at nicknames ;)). I am not upset, uptight, or any other descriptors you may have for me. No one, who has ever known me, has ever used those adjectives, in reference to me my entire life. My friends and I have actually been having a blast reading your, never ceasing to amaze absurdity and all too coincidental to be believable, common misspellings, bad grammar, and similar writing styles, to be from three (or more) different people. But I must admit its starting to get a little tiresome since all it does is elicit more internet buffoonery. So I’ll let you guys/gals/alters get back to your live(s), you know the ones you have, that most of us don’t. Yeah, the one that even though its a week before Christmas and you have a have a house full of Dogs, Children, Spouses, and Roommates, and still have time to post such menial comments. So . . Farewell, it’s been a hoot.

    Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Joyous Kwanzaa, and Solemn Saturnalia
    Hope the Orderlies loosen the straps ;).

    No, seriously have a good one.

    Wow. It’s as if all of the puppies in the contest have barfed in here at the same time after sneaking into Bombers’ kitchen and gorging themselves on something spicy. Yep, it’s that nasty.

  • Abby
    Dec 21, 2011 at 11:49 am

    Wow I have never laughed harder than when I read the comments starting when Gina split off into 2 other personalities. But this is pretty sad that this blog is about puppies. They are all cute. You all have terrible typing and/or grammer. Call it a deadlock and get some new candidates in here next week.

    Whatever !
    I am not going their again.
    oh I have to say this, Doesn’t anyone know your not suppose to give out information when your on line.. so maybe that is some of what you think you know but really don’t.

    So I will say this one more time..Here on vacation going away Tuesday and then you won’t hear from us again. Hopefully today this will be the end of this .All three of you need to chill.. Take a pill if you have to.. anyone out their have a pill to calm these guys down.
    Maybe a stiff drink.. Maybe that is more of your liking ,Danny sorry I upset you so. Appears that you are letting all your fustration out.. and I didn’t mean to upset you .You can call me anything you like.. if that makes you all feel better. I tried to say I was sorry and I even said that the girls were sorry.. but you wont except it. I can’t do anymore .. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
    Now I have to go the girls just got back . Time for lunch..
    Happy wife happy life..

    I agree with Really?! It does seem a little suspicious. Perhaps Gina, Pearl and George multiplied personalities again overnight?

  • George, Pearl and Gina
    Dec 22, 2011 at 10:26 am

    Hay Really, Affraid to put a real name on that?
    It has nothing to do with any of us. We dropped out.
    Done, finished..
    was at the barrel last night.. So It could’t have been us.

    Dec 22, 2011 at 10:37 am

    Appears that this little contest means a lot to someone.. who really needs to get a life.. Is this what you all live for., LOL No wonder it was so much fun to play with you all for a few days..
    If this isn’t proof I don’t know what is!

    Twas the day before Friday, And all through the blog,
    There was mud to be slung, ‘Bout a cute puppy dog.
    The voting was rigged, as some had implied.
    The owners of Meeko had probably cried.

    The puppies were staged all primped and quite cute.
    Why there even was one who was staged in a boot.
    With Charlie like Santa and Mox with her bow,
    These wonderful creatures set to steal the show.

    But then came the comments, some laced with hate.
    “I don’t like your dog because my dog is great!”
    You’re really a moron. And you need to chill.
    And some of them saying to go take a pill.

    And what should have been fun, instead it turned flat.
    And I sit here and wonder what happened to Matt?
    This shouldn’t go on in this mean, spiteful way.
    Perhaps he don’t care and has just gone away?

    Now George! and now Heather! now Pearl! and now Dan!
    on Gina! on Jenna! on Larry! on Ann!
    Come spew your hate, throw it far throw it wide.
    We’re wishing you all would come to the Dark Side.

    It is way out of hand, this vile display.
    Have they forgotten ’bout this upcoming day?
    Tis a time to be merry, a time for good cheer!
    Perhaps share a gift and then knock back a beer!

    I know how to solve this and bring back the fun.
    Send a notice to all that every dog won!
    Then curtail this contest, to be nevermore.
    And only post pictures of dogs we adore!

    Home Town Girl, You seem to know all the info on CDPC. I bet your a # 1 patient.
    Another one that doesn’t put a real name to it.. Might you be dear Heather with a feather in her cap spell and speak correctly?
    Girl, you need to eat shit and bark at the moon.
    You might finally feel like a real bitch..

  • George
    Dec 22, 2011 at 11:20 am

    It wasn’t any of us. We were at the Barrel last night.
    So not sure what your referring to. I guess you are all uptight about that dog in the boot winning.. It just goes to show that none of you have a life..
    Heather, Dan and what was the others name.. Jenna..
    Is this honestly, worth any of this .. you seem to all thrive on this.. and we noticed it right off the bat.. You guys need to find a hobby or something. Arn’t you guys working right now? I would think so. I told you we are on vacation..
    What in the world are you all doing this time of day that you have so much time on your hands to complain and accuse others.
    We are not going to respond anymore.. We told you all. We had our good time and we are done. We meant every bit of it. So go about your business and move on. If your boot dog wins. He or she wins.. If not.. next time.
    Bye! Have a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    Because 2 people can’t be named Heather? FYI that is my real name. I do not feel the need to pretend to be others or make up multiple identities. I was defending my friend when people bashed her and her puppy.

    I definitely think this contest is rigged. I just voted for Bailey and the poll results did not increase at all. I also had several of my coworkers just now go and vote and nothing.

    I guess that is what happens when you have a blog with the Times Union, you get to win no matter what…

    In the end we really know who would have won and that is all that matters….

    @Gina #109 – Really Gina? That comment was so mature of you. Did it ever occur to you that people actually WORK there and may know a thing or two about the place? I was merely providing factual information…there was no need for you to attack me. Just goes to show you how crazy people get while blogging. I’m thinking it might be you who needs a bed.
