Update April 17th: Hey we are in 4th place! Thank you for your votes. You can vote once daily until the 27th, which is National Hairball Awareness Day.

I was offline for most of last week and because of that, I am a week late with this, but here goes. I need you! Or rather… animals need you!

I participated in the second annual FURminator Fur Creature contest. (Here is my entry from last year.) This year’s theme was “celebrities” and below you will find “my” entry. Actually, my 12-year-old daughter is the creator of Ellen FurGeneres and last year’s entry too. I left it all up to her – she picked the celeb, did all of the brushing*, and created this hairy likeness. Her creation is in the top 5 out of 35 entries this year, and I think that is pretty great.

Now here’s where you come in. This year, the organizers did something new – they opened up voting for the top 5 entries and the winner will receive $1000 for their chosen 501-C3 charity. The other 4 will receive $250 worth of FURminator products for the charity. How cool is that? Our charity is SCRAPS – The shelter that we adopted Sophie from in June of 2002.

*Contributing pets: Sophie, Barnie and Quincy.

OK I’ll Beg…

I don’t do a lot of contests or ‘vote for me’ things, but this one is for the animals. They need you. $1000 would do lots of great things!

You can view all of the super fabulous entries here, see the 5 finalists, or go directly to Ellen FurGeneres’ voting page. Clicking on the photo will take you there, too. Here we are on People.com!

Huge congrats to all entrants – so much fun and creativity!

And, you can vote once every 24 hours!

At this writing, we are firmly in 5th place. wooot. Can you give us a boost? 😉


Sorry about needing to be on Facebook, liking the FURminator page and app to vote. (My husband was the first, and so far only, to complain.) You can undo it all later. heehee
