In our last post the Pooches Choice Winners were announced.
Once again, congratulations to Jake & Fergie and Jazzi for their victories.
They were chosen by a popular vote of fellow bloggers.

The following winners were chosen in different ways.

Mommy and Hootie and I wanted to pay tribute to our dear little friend, Dr. Dre, whom we lost so tragically last August. Dre loved to dress up and even was a winner, along with Hootie, in a local costume contest benefiting the Panhandle Animal Shelter in October 2009.
We felt it fitting to dedicate a category to him.

So, we have chosen PEDRO as our winner of the DR. DRE MEMORIAL TINY DOG PRIZE.

Hootie and I, Baby Rocket Dog, got to choose our own special winners, 'cuz it's our contest and we wanted to have our own pick! So, the following 2 special categories were created:

Baby's AireChoice for MOST CHARMING FASHION SENSE ~ MISS MOLLY of Inky and Molly. I feel Molly is right up there with Asta, Lacie and of course, me, with her fashion sense. I mean come on folks. How many of you have lent your clothes to your mommy?!

Hootie's Choice for DOG MOST LIKELY TO TURN ON HIS HOOMAN FOR DRESSING HIM IN THIS SILLY COSTUME ~ Frankie Furter. Look at the picture. 'Nuff said!

The following winners were chosen by a panel of these 7 unbiased judges: Cathi, Jeanne, Liz, Mandy, Maria, Patrick and Ramona. We want to send our thanks to all of these esteemed judges...We know there were some hard decisions that had to be made and we appreciate you making them. We think you did a fine job. Muchas gracias!!

NOW, for the winners in each category.
Drum roll please...pita-pita-pita-pita=pita-pita....

(like a celebrity, singer, storybook character, etc.):

2nd PLACE:


(One or two simple accessories):
2nd PLACE:
(Showy, shiny or outrageous):
(How did they get the pooch(es) to do that???):
Winners for CUTEST (Tie):

And last, but not least. Winner for BEST CAT COSTUME:

All of our contestants are fabulous, in and out of costume. We hope you all enjoyed this as much as we did. Now, we would like all of our winners to send us their mailing address so we can get their prizes out to them within the next week. Our email is: cassiejo(AT)juno(DOT)com. Once again, thank you to Mango and MangoMama for putting on MangoMinster 2011. And thank you to Oskar & also Mikkel Becker for each donating a prize.
Congratulations again AND Happy Valentine's Day!!
Smooches from pooches,
Baby Rocket Dog & Hootie

OH NO!!! I WON!! I'm so honored to win in memory of my homeboy Dr. Dre but I fear this will encourage the human to continue outfitting me in outrageous costumes! Oh well... Maybe I can learn a couple of things about being a gracious winner. Thank you, thank you, thank you! If I were a real dragon, I'd breathe fire on that outfit so I never have to don it again! :P
