Thank you Zoolatry for the beautiful graphic.
We are so proud of Merci, as we think she is a beautiful girl with a heart of cat. Yes, we said a heart of cat. When Jan adopted her, she was just hoping for a dog that wouldn't harm her cats. She never dreamed Merci would turn into a cat rescuer -- Percy and Cameron are Merci's -- or attract cats to follow them on their walks. (That was pre-Buddy and Sam, folks.) This loving Merci-ful character is what makes her beautiful to us.
We forgot about the Next Dog Model Contest until the last day (Friday, June 19). All our photos of Merci playing with a toy are blurred and we didn't have any posed shots we could use. So Jan took Merci outside and took some shots of her in the grass.
There were some beautiful/handsome dog photos entered, but when we got online this afternoon, we were pleasantly surprised to learn Merci won.
As Baby Patches writes in her post, "Just to recaps here da winner receives bragging rights, a spot in da header on SuppliesJust4Pets.com, and these goodies to goes wif it: 1 BullyBell Bully Stick, and 1 His or Hers Plush Bone Dog Toy!"
Congratulations Merci, runners-up perrythebirman's brother Sam and Jax. And also to honorable mentions Dixie, Syke and Olive. (If you don't believe a pit bull can smile, you have got to see Olive's photo. What a cutie.) You can view all their photos here at Baby Patches'.
And you can see our Merci in the header over at Supplies Just 4 Pets.

Our intention was to do an upbeat post, but just as we began writing this, we learned JB' has a prayer request out for Bear. Some of you are aware of the problem, but the details are not important. What is important is that Bear was to be safely turned over to JB's mom, but the ex-stepdad relocated him instead and Bear is evidently not in a safe situation. Please stop by JB's Small World to leave a comment -- and pray for Bear's safe return.
