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!
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!
- 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

And finally, no National Pet Week would be complete without a salute to everyone’s favorite pet, the dolphin (what, doesn’t everybody have a 950,000-gallon swimming pool?). Well, if you can’t have the real thing, you could win the next best thing, Dolphin Discovery, if you can correctly answer these four trivia questions.
- What movie thriller features assassins code-named “Alpha” and “Beta”?
- What brothers formed the core of the musical group Split Enz?
- What game commonly includes kickers, bumpers, plungers, and flippers?
- The calf pictured below is a wholphin — a rare hybrid of a bottlenose dolphin and what other animal?
