Congratulations to all of our winners!
We asked readers to submit entries for our annual contest, and the response was overwhelming! Our Facebook fans voted for each of their favorites in four categories. Thanks to our generous sponsors— VetNaturally, Mandeville Animal Hospital, Crosspoint Veterinary Hospital and Veterinary Holistic Healing—for providing gift baskets with products and services to our furry friends!
Fashionista – CHICA
Chica was found in Coral Gables, one of the most affluent areas of Miami, which is probably why she is such a little princess. Chica loves beautiful outfits, so the move to New Orleans was perfect for her since we do love dressing up here. Her favorite holidays are Halloween and Mardi Gras. She loves chasing squirrels, sunbathing and eating pate. Chica enjoys traveling and is looking forward to her next trip!
Unlikely Duo – CHORIZO
Mighty Mouse was rescued from St. Tammany Animal Services and is a current resident at Shady Key Horse Farm. While at PetSmart one day, he made a beeline for the squeeze toys. He came home with a taco toy and a new name—Chorizo (a type of Spanish sausage). He and his taco are inseparable. He lives with three English Bulldogs and a cat, and likes to spend time with the rescue horses.
Like Owner, Like Pet – BUDDY
Buddy is almost 15 years old. He is a Dachshund/ Beagle mix and was adopted in 2008. Obviously, he loves to sleep and nap all day! He has a bed in every room. He loves his back and ears rubbed, likes car rides and sunbathing in the grass. He loves his momma so much and is right there with her all the time. He has two human brothers, one who is autistic, and he is very protective of him.
Fluffiest – WINNIE
Winnie was born in Houma and she is a little over a year old. She now resides in Madisonville. Her favorite things to do are go on walks, play fetch and watch TV. She knows sit, stay, shake, and high five. She loves to snuggle, dance and to be held like a baby. Winnie’s soft, fluffy hair and goofy personality are what make her so lovable to everyone she meets!
