Please Vote for Me

We don't usually enter contests because like everyone else, we like to win and we know there are lots of kitties and woofies out there.  However, recently a contest was announced in an email Mom Paula received that you could win a $100 gift card to Wag.com if you submitted a photo for their Valentine Contest.    When Mom Paula pulled up the page, there were only 3 other animals participating and all of them were woofies, so we said, "sure, let's try it."  The voting ends at 11:59 PM on  February 12, 2014.  We weren't going to mention it on our blog until it became obvious that two of the woofies are starting to get votes that are growing almost exponentially.  We suspect either vote bots or exchanging votes, which are both cheating.  We would like to win, but we know there is no way to catch up with the extremely high numbers these two woofies have.  However, we would like to have a lot of "honest" votes.  If you're a member of Facebook, please consider going to https://www.facebook.com/petassure?v=app_448952861833126&rest=1 and casting your honest vote for Brulee.  We appreciate it.  Mom Paula says it was so tempting to go down that dark valley and "cheat" too, but we were all raised better than that.  We think we're going to stick with honest contests that are sponsored by the CB.

Now that we have that out of our system, we can go and get some treats.  Right, Mom???

UPDATE:  Mom Paula received this message from the sponsors of the contest.

"I just wanted to keep you posted and let you know that we're likely going to be adjusting the contest in light of these issues. We haven't finalized how yet, so keep an eye on the page - we'll post the details as soon as they're finalized."

The link is down right now, but when it's back up, we'll let you know.

  1. We have been voting every which way we can and asking people to help out too. Maybe Chey will mention it tomorrow on her blog--we've already posted on her page and Mama's Facebook page!
