Pugapalooza

First and foremost, thank you all so much for the many people who have voted thus far, I really appreciate it.



Now, I want to comment on the comments that I've been receiving stating that its not 'fair' to have a grown pug picture compete with a puppy pic.


This isn't your competition, and the pictures for this competition have been selected for the past month or so. I don't honestly care if you think its 'fair' or not, the rules (which are mine) never specified that it would be all puppies or all grown pugs. And its my contest not yours, so your suggestions/demands/etc aren't really needed or required. Sorry... but I needed to get that off my chest.


Secondly, the pug that you are referring to has a puppy picture and a grown picture. The picture right below the puppy picture. Don't request to see an adult picture of the pug... its already there.


Thirdly, pay attention to the all the pictures before you leave comments. There is a mix of finalists that are puppies and grown pugs. I made the selections, sorry if you don't approve of my choices... but its my contest, not yours.



KEEP VOTING Contest Runs until May 10th...



Sorry to be a Debbie Downer there. This contest is supposed to be fun and I didn't anticipate any even slightly negative comments. So I'm bother by people's comments. And I wanted to put that out there before it could have the opportunity to progress.

When I see cute pictures, I'm less likely to leave hateful comments, guess I'm the only one.

Personally I think old pugs are cuter. I think it goes with me thinking old men are adorable too...

Yep.. that's creepy =)

Yeah, I was a bit confused by all the comments about Chief and puppy v. adult photos for her. I thought it was pretty clear that both pics were of the same pug just one was as a puppy and the other was as an adult. I'm glad you stood up for YOUR contest!

i am glad you got that off your chest becasue i dont know if i would be able to let a comment like that go. its so hurtful for someone to say puppies are more cute than grown dogs. its a contest and people will make comments, get over it.
