And Now, Our Grand Prize Weiner

Congratulations to yesterday’s winner of Dolphin Discovery: Holly K.

Whew, we’re beat!  What a whirlwind National Pet Week this was!  You peeps bombarded us with jokes, rhymes and trivia–over 950 entries in all four contests!

That's just a tail, you perv.

And our grand prize winner, selected at random from all entries, is Toni T., whose clever entry, from the caption contest, went like this: Doggie:  “Where did your ears go?!” Birdie:  “Where did your wings go?!”

Toni wins our Grand Prize: A new Nintendo DSi game system and all four Discovery Kids games! Congratulations, and thanks to all who played, and special thanks to 505 Games!


Trivia Answers:

  • Day of the Dolphin (a lot of readers alerted us to another movie titled Sex and Death 101, and we would have accepted that as well)
  • Neil and Tim Finn
  • Pinball
  • False Killer Whale

    Caption by Leslie D.
    “Here’s looking at you, kid.”

    Limerick by Jessica K.
    There once was a cat o’ so sloppy
    he tried to create a monopoly
    once given the chance
    he evaluated his stance
    and changed his mind to favor Oligopoly

    Haiku by Gina B.
    worries do not last
    a family is forever
    these days are special

  26. PS I LOVE this doggy. Like 20 pounds of wiggle in a ten-pound bag. 😀

  27. Argyle Donkeypants says:

    It would seem to me that a bikini for this puppy would be four times the cost of a regular one.

  28. Ohhhh, I wish that you knew how to spell wiener …..!
    That is what I truly wish you seeeeeeee,
    ’cause if you knew how to spell wienerrrrr,

  31. Pyrit, when two vowels go walking, the first one does the talking. Except in German, when it’s the other way around. Except these are German words. OK. I’ll shut up.

  32. So I showed my Dachsie, Charlie, this pic, and he was instantly smitten. And why WOULDN’T he be??? Full spread-eagle, with all eight breasticles showing!

    Charlie disappeared behind the couch, and I haven’t seen him since, but I do hear some rather obnoxious slurping sounds. Y’all have corrupted my sweet Charlie!
