I received a message last night from a friend that his dog, Fiona, is entered in a national online photo contest promoted by Garden and Gun magazine entitled 2014 Good Dog. I don't know the judging criteria, I don't know the prize, and I don't know what is in it for the owner. (EDITOR"S NOTE: Demographic studies of our readership indicate that publications with names like Garden and Gun, Feet Monthly, and Spank It, rated the highest and were classified as "very willing to subscribe to" based on title interest.

At the current time of publication, Fiona has over 100 votes; the leader has a couple of thousand. You can only vote once per day from the same device. I exhort the 3 of you to vote from your computer, tablet, and phones daily for the next week to create a tidal wave of interest to propel this dog to the top of the standings in the contest. Rudimentary math indicates that 7 days of voting x 3 voting devices x 3 rabid voters should have this dog in the mid-hundreds vote count by the end of the contest. This is probably not going to be enough to win, but, you can sleep soundly know you have done something useful today. For the majority of our readership, that will probably be a days worth of work.
