Labradog Contest WINNERS!

First off, I need to tell you that momma did the evil "mark all as read" last night so I apologize in advance for not even getting to read your posts from last week. Not fair! She promised that this week she will have more time to relax and enjoy all your adventures. Well, I certainly hope so.

Today's post is dedicated to all black labradogs everywhere because it is time to announce the winners of my black lab challenge!

Before I tell you who is the grand prize winner, a recap. Here are all your wonderful faces with the actual names revealed.

#1 - Domino

#2 - Moose

#3 - R

#5 - Stella

#6 - Sophie

#8 - Randi

#9 - Rudy

#10 - Dexter (that's ME)

#11 - Koda

#12 - Buddy

#13 - Asta

#14 - Cosmo

#15 - Shen

#17 - Mr. Magoo

#18 - Hunter

#19 - Gem

See? That wasn't so hard. We are all very different, right?

Well, apparently this was quite difficult because only TWO doggies were able to correctly identify each and every photo. It was Minnie-Moo (who sent me her votes via email so that she would not reveal how clever she is) and Mr. Magoo!

I thought I should be able to award prizes to BOTH of them, but momma said, no, only one prize.

Fortunately, our pal, Kira's mom donated this beautiful labradog ornament to the contest. Wow!
She has lots of cool doggie stuff at her Magic Sleigh web store.

So this will go to the runner up.

Are you ready?

I tried to think of the best way to choose a winner, but momma thought that since there were only two that a coin toss would be the most fair. Here goes...

Minnie Moo wins! And Mr. Magoo wins runner up! You are both clever and Mr. Magoo is handsome but that Minnie, sigh, she has the sweetest face... in fact she kind of looks... like ME!

Dexter done!

Minna Krebs said...

Congratulations to da Winners!

Butt, I must say, that is just about the BESTEST looking group of labradogs I have ever seen!!


Lola said...

Congratulations to the winners. I'm so mad that Blog Mom did not get me back here to play. I wouldn't have won, though. Actually, we might have to do the Mark ALL As Read thing or something like it because we had very little online time this weekend. Anyway, I think it was the greatest idea for a contest and good job to the ones that got everydoggy right.

lotsa licks, Lola

Frankie Furter said...

Hip Hip Hooooray for the Winner and Runner Up. This was really hard. I tried and tried and just couldn't tell anyone except Moose.
Thanks for the fun.

Priscilla said...

Peppy Sheppys said...

HOO RAY! What smart dogs. We are mad that our ape was "too busy" to help us play the game but we had most fun following it anyway. (Truth is, she was embarrassed that she might mess up and reveal her stupid side. Which is both sides.)

Minnie-Moo (Rescue Lab) said...

Wow, I won, how exciting!!!

Thanks so much Dexter (and family!) for running such a cool contest. It was really hard work trying to work out which dog was which and Muzzle had to help me.

Well done to Mr Magoo too. And what a gorgeous bunch of black Labs we are!



Moose said...

Momma got 3 wrong... She is an airhead! I think she should have sent in a trickier picture of me though. The one she sent was so obviously me!
That was lots of fun Dexter! Congrats to the winners!

Toffee said...

Yes indeedy...paw claps all around.

Congrats to Minnie and Mr. Magoo!

rottrover said...

Beautiful Labradogs! Dexter, thanks for making us aware of the bias you black doggies are up against! All the contestants are sooo beautiful. Love that Asta!

Busby and Raymond said...

Labradorks are sorta good looking, huh? (for DOGS)

Kari in WeHo said...

Wow! Only two got it right! Congrats to both of them

3 doxies said...

Ooooh dat was a fun contest! I gotta say, all them doggies do look completely different.
Congrats to da winner!
Now, I ready fur a mastiff contest...oh never mind, they ain't dat many...shucks!


Stella said...

I must admit to thinking somewhat like Mango's Mom that Labs look alike. But this was an eye-opener for me, they were all just unique and beautiful dogs, even the half and half like Stella.

Thanks for having the contest, Peewee, just seeing the pics was the fun part for me.

brooke said...

Dood! That was tough! I wouldve only got Moose and Stella.
Congrats to the winners!

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Congrats to the winners! I'm glad we didn't try to enter - we would have only embarrassed ourselves by our complete and utter lack of labradog knowledge. However, now we have lots of new friends! Great contest, Dexter.

As an unrelated comment, Dexter, you look REALLY SMALL compared to the RH in your header photo. Since we know you aren't a lightweight, RH is really RH, isn't he?

That was really hard but our Mom did better than she expected. Are we going to have a Mastiff contest next?

Marjie said...

It's pretty hard to tell the difference, other than the adorable little puppy, and the girl with the long labrahair. But there's no doubt that this was a fine looking group of Labradogs!
