Cutest Pup Contest!!

A few days ago I was surfing the web, looking at online shops for all the cutest couture puppy clothes, accessories, beds, etc. when I ran across an ad for an Online Photo Contest for the Cutest Puppy for the month of July. I thought how fun it would be to enter my 20 week old Chihuahua named Diva. Her name says it all! She is such a little Diva. I picked her up from the pet store two months ago and I still hadn't picked out a name! The clerk told me that she is such a little Diva, always rough housing with her two older and bigger brothers, and the name stuck  :-)

In the short time I have had Diva, she has became part of my family, part of me. She was the runt of the litter so she is tiny (under 2 pounds), she is absolutely adorable, and the cutest little puppy ever. She loves playing outside, going for walks, and she is definitely spoiled. Shouldn't every dog be? I even glue Swarovski crystals to almost every piece of doggy clothing she owns. In short, I am a very dedicated owner.

So today was the start of the contest. I had created a facebook event a few days ago so my friends and family wouldn't forget to vote. I spent countless hours today at the computer telling all of my friends online to vote. She was in 1st place with almost half of the votes! I was tired of staring at the computer all day, so I took a short break. Only a few hours had passed, and she had dropped to second place.

I felt so upset that I had spent so much time on the computer, and with only an hour or two away, she wasn't winning, but, it's only the first day of the contest, there is a lot more time to catch back up. Actually this specific contest runs for one month, from June 29 2011 to July 28th 2011. But some part of me is thinking that there must be some other way to get more votes. So I decided to write a blog about it.

Diva deserves to win this contest because she is truly an amazing pup! She is always decked out in the cutest puppy apparel, stoned to the gods with Swarovski crystals! She has the kindest heart, always playing with our Maine Coon kitten. She loves giving kisses, almost licking your face right off, haha, and just loves all the attention she can get! But mostly why I think that she should win, is because the stereotype of Chihuahuas, being mean and nippy, is absolutely not true. Yes, some Chihuahuas do Bite and Snarl, but that is a complete misconception. It has completely to do with how the pup was raised. And Diva was raised with much love and care.

Some of you must be thinking why do I want her to win so bad, what is in it for me. Well for this particular photo contest, all the prize package consists of is a bandanna with her name on it, and the honor of being named the Cutest Puppy for the Month of July on www.cutepuppypicture.com 

All you have to do to vote is go to www.cutepuppypicture.com and scroll to the right of the screen, click on DIVA, and Submit your Vote. Every Vote Counts!

Tell your friends if you would like, and lets get Diva back to the Top!!!

I would like to thank all of you who have voted, those of you who will, and if you don't vote, there must be a good enough reason not to devote 5 seconds of your time to do so.



  1. Hi Antonio! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am now following you -- your first follower! :-D

    I have a special place in my heart for Chihuahua's. Your little Diva is absolutely precious! I will definitely vote for her. Hope she wins! :-)

    A great blog hop to participate in (if you don't already know about it) is "The Saturday Pet Blogger Hop" at http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/category/pet-blogger-hop/. It happens every Saturday. It will help you get some more followers. The blog hop is geared toward pet lover's like us! :-)

    Best of luck with the Cutest Puppy Photo Contest. Hope Diva wins! :-)

  2. Hi Antonio! It's me again.

    FYI - the link that you posted on your blog post - www.cutepuppypictures.com doesn't work. It goes to a "generic bookmark page." The link that WORKS (that you also have posted) is the www.cutepuppypicture.com (which doesn't contain an "s" at the end). Just thought you would like to know so you can fix it. That might be why you aren't gets the votes you'd like to have.



  3. Hi Antonio! The Saturday Pet Blogger Hop is a little confusing at first. This coming up Saturday check back at that the link I listed above. A new blog hop starts every Saturday and the "linky tool" stays open until Sunday night. It is actually a weekend blog hop. What you will do is click on the text that says "full story" on the right hand side at the bottom of the latest story. That will take you to a new page that has the full story (pics and all). The lady that does the blog hop always posts a story and pics above the actual blog hop. Once you are on the full story page, scroll all the way down to the bottom and you will see the start of the blog hop. Scroll all the way down the blog hop and it will say "be the next to enter your link". Follow the instructions and then press enter. Refresh your page and you should see your link added to that week's blog hop.

    To check out last weeks blog (the french bulldog) hop then follow the instructions above and you will see all the names of the people that entered last weekend. The link is now closed but a new one will start each Saturday morning. Here is also a link to last week's just in case you want a quick peek without doing "all the above" steps. http://www.lifewithdogs.tv/2011/06/the-saturday-pet-blogger-hop-french-bulldog-dance-party/

    Good luck. Let me know if you need further assistance. I'd be happy to help out. :-)

  4. Hey Antonia,

    I checked out your drag blog and love it. I am in the old school....as I have friends from way back, as well as a cousin, who is a performer. My bestest friend is Bunny FooFoo, an old timer from back in the day.

    Anyhoo...love your little girl. She's simply adorable. Welcome to the pet blogger world. We are a huge community. In fact, you should check out the BlogPaws community. They are also getting ready to have a pet bloggers conference in August. It is going to be fun times.
