Enter the GUND Top Dog Contest!

12:00 AM

Do you have a dog that you consider to be the cutest doggie in the world? How about a dog that looks like you?? HA! I have to admit that sometimes I see someone walking their dog and oddly enough, they resemble each other..whether it be their hair, body style (fat, thin, etc.) or build, sometimes dog owners pick out dogs that look like them! I always think of the 101 Dalmatians movie where the froo froo Poodle looks like her froo froo, stuck-up madam, or the short stubby Pug looks like his short and stubby fella that is walking him. Well, if you think that you have one of the cutest dogs on the planet, then I have a great contest to share with you today!
