The Greatest Blog Contest Of All Time! Voting Open

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.

Do It For Amy! Battersea call her their “Meerkat” Cat

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.  

Do It For Colleen – Battersea’s Sociable Husky

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.

Do It For Hooch – Battersea’s Cuddle Bunny

Surely they deserve treats more than our pampered pooches at home!

  2. But I LOVE your blog and I voted for you. Hope that’s okay 🙂

  3. 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….. 😀 😀

  4. 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.

    Hope I did that right – I voted for Long Life Cats and Dogs. See you tomorrow for pretty nails J

  6. How could anyone possibly not fall for all that smoochy talk..!?!
    Voted…! 🙂

  7. Good luck with the competition. We snuck a vote in for you. Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  8. On my way to cast my vote!!!!

  9. Best of luck. It is nice to share treats! Lee and Phod

  10. I’m still thinking about my vote, but you’re definitely on my shortlist now!

  11. I voted, because I’m a good citizen of Blogville ;o)

  12. Doggy has taught US all well. To cheat, bribe whatever it takes to win..LOL.. Good luck my friend 🙂 xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  13. 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!

  14. Yours is the first begging post I’ve seen for Doggie’s contest, so you win my vote. Good luck.

    Love and licks,

  15. Penelope

    What a blantant ploy! Me LOVES it! Now me shall runs off to Doggy’s and votes for – YOU!

  16. cocoaupnorth

    Voted! Who could refuse such an appeal. Good luck:-)

  17. Some people really have this way with words…ok…I’m going! 🙂

  18. What a great idea, and that contest looks like great fun too!

  19. 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 🙂

  20. Good luck to you! It may be a conscience-tugger, but it’s still a very worthy cause! 🙂

  21. We can give treats to both – our pampered pets and the refuge puddies and pups.

  22. 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.

  23. We want to give you a star for all your great work. Pop over to my place and shine 🙂
