Each vote is only $1, and all of the money goes directly to Project Pet, a non-profit rescue organization that saves many of the animals sent to Midlands shelters. Winston is a Project Pet dog, and I'm a big fan of the organization. (Gotta love this award-winning HOWLoween picture, huh?)
No worries - Winston's competive days are over. Personally, I couldn't TAKE another contest, and Winnie wants to go out a winner! But I do have a "dog in the race," beautiful Blue, who "owns" a green colleague.
