Lulu & Lolly Declare Merci A Winner

We love Lulu & Lolly's website and blog. And our Maltese friends have outdone themselves this time. Jan nearly fell out of her chair laughing when she read their story on Merci and the Cutest Dog Contest.

It's been one of those weeks. The computer was down for 5 days. Yesterday we didn't have water for about 24 hours. (Those water department guys kept their word and didn't leave until they got the area's water restored at 11 PM last night.)

And today was stressful because after many months Jan finally had an unused copy of Photo Shop Elements 6. (Our processor is too slow to load PSE7.) She watched it install. She spent half an hour trying unsuccessfully to get it past our firewall to register it. And then she opened the program. Looked at it for a couple of minutes. And closed it. She has no idea what it is or what to do with it yet.

So, Lulu & Lolly's timing was a perfect stress-buster. They have written a hilarious account of trying to vote for Merci, weaving in various posted comments and correspondence. Girls, we can't thank you enough for declaring Merci the cutest dog!

Our post for today is to send you over to Lulu & Lolly's to read their Wednesday post, Maltese Dogs LuLu and LoLLy Declare Merci "Winner".

We think you'll enjoy it. And if you left a comment on one of Merci's voting posts, you just might have a speaking part in the story.

As for us, now that we can, we're going to go have a long cool drink of fresh water.

Update to Cutest Dog Contest. There is a post on their blog about cheating will not be tolerated and they change the rules to make this "FUN." Is anyone who has tried to vote been having fun?

We just posted this comment, which will undoubtedly be deleted as were our other two.
I see some of my own complaints here. Such as deleting comments from your blog and not answering them.
Changing the rules to make folks have to register to vote. Wouldn't be too bad except you then redirect everyone AWAY from the dog they came to vote for. There is nothing fair about that.

  6. Hey Gang,
    We totally agree with the Lolly and Lulu blog, especially since we're mentioned in it just like you said. Well at least you can shower and have something to drink so today must've been better than yesterday.

  20. Geesh, it's been a total horror story at JFF's house, hasn't it? We've been able to vote sometimes and not others. We keep trying, though! Hope they get it figured out... But we agree that Merci is a winner no matter what.

    Purrs and hugs,

  25. We voted when it let us. Yesterday it said our e-mail didn't exist in the system or some nonsense. We loved your friend's post though. Merci wins, paws down.

    *update* It said our e-mail address didn't exist but when we requested a lost password they sent the non existing address. So we got another vote in.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
