As many of you may know, Doggy’s Style is running the Greatest Blog Contest of All Time. Obviously I entered. Doggy has taught me well with regards to Competition Addiction.
You think this is a normal “begging” post, don’t you? You’re wrong. Lady Litchfield is not begging for herself, she is begging for the Battersea Animal Shelter. She is begging for you to vote for her “less than perfect entry” so that these animals in need get to taste the delicious morsels on offer.
Doggy is giving a 20 Pound voucher for Mollie’s Dog Treats, to the winner. Sounds awesome. Bet those other entrants want that! Me? No, I want the prize to go to Mollie’s favourite rescue organisation.
As bribery goes, this is pretty good, don’t you think? We’re appealing to your conscience. We’re appealing on behalf of the Animals in Need. We’re appealing on behalf of the Homeless Dogs and Cats. How can you say “No”?
Basically, out of pure guilt (because I don’t believe mine was the best entry, we just have the best motive), I’m asking for you to hop over to Doggy’s site and vote for us – thereby voting for Battersea Animal Shelter.
Surely they deserve treats more than our pampered pooches at home!

Doggy has taught you well BOL – very best of luck!
Thanks Misaki. I have learnt from a true master.
ps I have something for you on my bloggy:-) http://wp.me/p2h87n-ti
I saw it – I’m speechless. Thank you so very, very much.
But I LOVE your blog and I voted for you. Hope that’s okay 🙂
That’s perfect, thank you. The more votes the better cause our prize will go straight to the Battersea animals. You are a star!
It seems Doggy’s begging technique AND contest addition is contagious!! Eeeeeek!! However, we DO agree that you’re doing it for a MOST worthy cause….. 😀 😀
Kitty Hugs, Sammy (and his Mom)
Thanks Sammy and Mom, glad you think it’s a worthy cause for such blatant begging and bribery 🙂
I’ll tell you, it definitely is contagious. Once you’ve caught the bug, there’s no getting away from it.
Ohhh my sweet baby jesus!
I’m gonna cry, I’m so proud of you, I have no words to describe what I’m feeling.
You are actually better than me at this, you use pics and all, this is overwhelming.
I’m so glad the Master approves. I try to be the best student I can 🙂 Let’s hope all the bribery and guilt trips worked for the Battersea animals.
Hope I did that right – I voted for Long Life Cats and Dogs. See you tomorrow for pretty nails J
Hey Kim, you wonderful star you. We’ll make a blogging addict out of you yet 🙂 Thanks for the vote.
How could anyone possibly not fall for all that smoochy talk..!?!
Glad the smooching worked 😀 Got to do what you’ve got to do 🙂 Thanks for the vote. Let’s hope the Battersea animals get a well deserved treat now.
Good luck with the competition. We snuck a vote in for you. Have a terrific Thursday.
Best wishes Molly
Thank you Molly, greatly appreciated. Have a marvelous day.
On my way to cast my vote!!!!
Thank you, the Battersea animals will really appreciate it.
Best of luck. It is nice to share treats! Lee and Phod
Thanks Lee and Phod. It will be nice if we can give the Battersea animals a treat for a change. Let the best guilt trip win 😀
I’m still thinking about my vote, but you’re definitely on my shortlist now!
Ah, so bribery and guilt trips don’t automatically work for you Clowie. I’ll have to remember that. Glad I at least made the shortlist though 😀
Good luck to you!
Thank you! Let’s hope the Battersea animals get a little treat now.
I voted, because I’m a good citizen of Blogville ;o)
You are a fantastic citizen of bloville Easy. Thank you so much!
Doggy has taught US all well. To cheat, bribe whatever it takes to win..LOL.. Good luck my friend 🙂 xx00xx
Mollie and Alfie
Thank you! Hoping the bribery, guilt trip etc has worked to get Battersea the prize. My word, we have learnt well, haven’t we! 🙂
Popping over to Doggys’s blog now to vote for you. Yes the dogs and cats in animal shelters deserve the same kindness and treats as those creatures fortunate enough to have loving homes. Off to vote now!
Wonderful, thank you so much. Let’s hope the Battersea animals get a little treat now.
Yours is the first begging post I’ve seen for Doggie’s contest, so you win my vote. Good luck.
Love and licks,
Thank you Cupcake, that is wonderful. Glad no-one else got in before I did.
What a blantant ploy! Me LOVES it! Now me shall runs off to Doggy’s and votes for – YOU!
Thank you Nellie, glad you approve of blatant begging with guilt trips thrown in and all 🙂
Voted! Who could refuse such an appeal. Good luck:-)
Thank you so much! Glad the guilt trip worked on you 🙂
Some people really have this way with words…ok…I’m going! 🙂
😀 Glad the guilt trip worked. Thanks and lets hope some lucky animals get a few treats now.
You are such a star. Thank you xx0xx
What a great idea, and that contest looks like great fun too!
A very fun contest and, if we can give a few treats to some needy animals, what a wonderful benefit to all the fun.
I didn’t even think to campaign. Now that I am whiping tears from my eyes for all those sad little rescues, I am conflicted: vote for me? vote for you? I was just doing it for the fun, I never really thought about the food. You are so kind and caring. – DogDaz
Ah, good, so the guilt trip is working 😀
I figured that, as I am so very far away, I may as well let the rescue animals close to Mollie get some treaties.
It is still all in good fun though, so go ahead and vote for yourself. It’s a fair war out there 🙂
Good luck to you! It may be a conscience-tugger, but it’s still a very worthy cause! 🙂
Thanks Daisy. I’m definitely hoping some needy animals get a well deserved treat.
We can give treats to both – our pampered pets and the refuge puddies and pups.
All the better! If we can give to both, then we’re really doing a great job 🙂
Even though we are pretty sure that you are going to win, if our entry wins too we will also donate the winnings to Battersea Animal Shelter 😀
How wonderful. That is so incredibly kind of you. My entry certainly wasn’t the best so if I were to win, it would truly be out of pure guilt 😀 This way, I can encourage people to vote for yours as well. Yours was brilliant – a bittersweet love story – so clever. I’m putting out a post today to help Doggy go homeless and, at the same time, I’ll let the guilt ridden know that they now have 2 options to vote for in the contest.
We want to give you a star for all your great work. Pop over to my place and shine 🙂
Aw, thank you Princess Zena – you are so sweet. Nothing like a bit of Sunshine to brighten up ones day. Popping over there right now.

Good luck to the Long Life Cats and Dogs.
Thank you. Much appreciated. Let’s hope at least a few treats can make their way to the animal shelter.
Never be afraid to play the “guilt card”. That’s how Slug won AZ’s Dog of the Year!
😀 Guilt card it is then. Anything to help the rescue animals in whatever small way I can.
