Snow, a contest, and a little sisterly love

First, don't forget, I'm holding a contest!!! Abby's 'Hippo-Bottomus' name tag won third place in the name tag contest from Fetching Tags so I get a new name tag!!!! Since I have apparently NOT lived up to my 'Dogzilla' expectations. So... I am going to hold a contest for my name tag. I am going to invite submissions from now until Sunday, October 17th at 9pm. A winner will then be picked (possibly by popular vote, if Mom can figure out how to do the voting thing) and the individual who submitted the winning name tag line will get a $25 donation to the animal charity of their choice. Please promote this to all your friends - the more submissions the merrier! Put your thinking caps on, and come up with a new tag for me! If you need ideas, Fetching Tags has some popular tag lines to get your creative juices flowing!

Good luck, and may the best tagline win! BTW, some of the entries so far include "The Good Dog" and "Zoom-Zoom" (Dennis probably didn't realize he was submitting a tag line when he made that comment about the autocross video, but Mom though that was a tag line worth considering! Heehee.)

Now, on to other stuff. First, here's a nod to all my Siberian Husky friends; the upper reaches of Park City got snow the other night! We didn't actually get any snow at the house, but Deer Valley got a dusting, so Mom stole borrowed a few pictures from their Facebook album so you could see the snow. The weather has since cleared up, and it is a little warmer - in the 50s during the day and in the 30s at night, but here's some snow for those of you who like that sort of stuff! ;-)

So yep, it's getting to be that time of year!

But, today it was dry enough that Mom felt Abby and I could wrestle a little without Monster Tuchus my dear little sister getting too muddy. So we went out and showed Mom what sisterly love is all about!

'Cause we do sisterly love like pros!

We also specialize in looking innocent. Heehee.

And while we've been bitey-ing each other and running around like crazy women the young, energetic doggies that we are, Mom has been doing a little stitching.

It hasn't been ironed yet....

And there you have it. Don't forget about my contest, PLEASE! I need some good suggestions for my new name tag!!!!

The flying pounce is right out of world wide wrestling. Maybe you need a cool wrestler name. Like Goldenator.

wow! your sister really is HUMUNGOUS! (in a voluptuous way of course. Juno would not enjoy me making "heavy" jokes about another girl doggie...)

The girl's name Fiona \
fi(o)-na\ is pronounced fee-OWN-ah. It is of Irish and Gaelic origin, and the meaning of Fiona is "fair, pale". Reportedly coined by an English author in the early 20th century.

I got this from Here are a few ideas for you:
Fiona Fair
Fiona the Fair Princess
Pretty Woman Fiona (Julia Robert's middle name)
I'm sure that is too many for the contest but I wanted to give you the ones I thought of ;o)

You 2 are sure rambunctious when you play. Fiona, I think a tag that says "I was first" would be appropriate.
