Call For Entries: Arlington’s Cutest Dog Contest

As if Arlington didn’t have enough good looking people, the county is also blessed with an inordinate number of cute dogs. In some places it’s hard to walk down the street without encountering some adorable mutt.

But whereas people have beauty pageants, what do local dogs have? Bupkis.

That’s why we’re teaming up with Wylie Wagg (2509 N. Franklin Rd.), Clarendon’s new hometown pet store, to bring you the Arlington’s Cutest Dog Contest. And in honor of the World Cup, we figured we’d do it tournament-style.

In a nutshell, here’s how it will work:

  • Email [email protected] with a clear photo of your pooch, along with his or her name, sex, breed, age and a one paragraph “biography.”
  • Next week the public will begin voting on the contestants by groups. A “Final Four” will be chosen from those votes.
  • The public will then vote on a Grand Prize winner.

The Grand Prize winner will receive a $100 Wylie Wagg gift certificate, good for anything from their selection of healthy food and supplies for dogs and cats (see below), and a very World Cup-appropriate mini soccer ball chew toy.

Note that if we get a large number of entries, we may have to narrow down the field by random drawing.

    Is Mary Hynes entering herself?

    Wow, Mike. Every post you make proves you to be more uncouth, more ignorant, and more contemptible than your previous post. Congrats.

    • Mike

      You’re right. I should not have said that about Mary Hynes, because this is a CUTE dog contest. Not an ugly doggie contest. She will have to wait for that one.

    This is catist.

    How about coolest cat contest?

    • If this contest is a success, then I would imagine that we would try to do a cat next. Don’t worry, cat lovers, we haven’t forgotten about you.
