And The Winner Is.....Wyatt!

The comments have been counted and the winner of our dog photo contest is Wyatt! See his original photo and post http://writerwithdogs.blogspot.com/2010/12/contest-entry-3-wyatt.html.

Wyatt is totally pawsome!

What does this winner have to say about all this? When notified earlier today, Wyatt, in his winning crown, had a favor to ask!

"Can I split my prize with Mr. Pip? Could you send him $150 for his cause and $150 for mine?"

Mr. Pip and Wyatt are buddies and Wyatt loves Mr. Pip's cause "Red Door Shelter" as much as he loves his own "Project Pooch". So, there you have it, the $300 prize money will be split between these two pawsome friends.

Competition was stiff, but all the dogs left comments for each other! Wyatt left this comment for Mr. Pip when his photo was added to the mix of contestants.

"Oh, I have some competition now! You should be resting up for the big race, Pip!! I'm going to go comment for you, cuz we are both pawesome!!"

Wyatt came in with 85 comments and Mr. Pip with 65.

Pip was all smiles when he heard about his friend Wyatt's generosity!

"Oh my gosh, that is so wonderful Wyatt. Thanks so much!"

And thanks to everyone who entered their favorite dog into this contest! Every dog is a winner because they are surrounded by love every day! The money from this contest will help two shelters help other dogs find their forever homes.

Want to have some fun? Go back and look at all those sweet dog faces and read the comments! The dogs were voting for each other, looking after their friends, as good friends do.

Thank you all, and thank you Wyatt, for reminding us of the meaning of true friendship!
