Update: The glitch is fixed!! We can now vote every 24 hours!
Just got an email from the director of the contest:After the recalculations, guess who's in the lead? Our very own Mr. Angus!!Hello Top Dog Contestants,
As many of you may know, we have had several unavoidable glitches in our voting mechanism for the photo contest. Due to this happening, there have been some miscalculations in voting during the time they were in the system trying to correct the issue. (this explains the 400 votes for one picture in half an hour, I guess! - AngusFangus) Therefore, we have carefully analyzed each entry, calculated the total votes per day from each individual IP address, and removed any votes that do no qualify. We are confident that each photo currently has the fair and correct number of votes allowed per day per IP address. The issue has now been resolved, and voting should resume as normal. Please note, if you are attempting to vote from within an office where the computers are on a network, they are all connected to the same address and it will not allow for voting multiple times from individual work stations. Please ask you friends and co workers to submit their daily vote from their home computer.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused. And we look forward to seeing you all at this weekend's Dog Day Festival for the big announcement!
AND...it let me vote again (for the first time since this started)!
So it appears that we can all now vote once every 24 hours. If you haven't been able to, would you mind trying again now? Let's keep Angus in the lead!
I just checked and I could not believe my eyes: Angus has 280 votes!
But then I scrolled down, and there is another dog who has come out of nowhere just this morning and has 405 votes. Yikes! I think we might be getting blown out of the water.

The site is being really picky about letting you vote again. I have used my phone, DD's phone, my computer and one from work. If they made it easier, Angus would be blowing them out of the water!
I just can't believe Angus has gotten as many votes as he has! I think it's unreal. The power of JL at work! I believe there's nothing this board can't do.
World peace, I'm pretty sure we would fail there!
I tried re booting the modem hoping it would change my IP & let me vote again but the IP stayed the same. Also tried a different browser. No luck there either. Looks like I'm restricted to once every 24 hours.
What's he going to win when he DOES win?
Sounds like someone got all of their FB friends to vote for them!!there is another dog who has come out of nowhere just this morning and has 405 votes.

Garth, if Angus wins he would enjoy a getaway weekend at the Farm at Natchez Trace (posh doggie boarding and daycare that costs as much as a hotel per night). He would also be treated to a grooming session and celebrity photo shoot, a doggie basket of goodies from a local botique, but the thing that I would be UBER excited about is, he would be featured in the advertising for next year's Dog Day!
We've been going to DD for years...Angus has never missed a year. I would get such a huge kick out of seeing him on ads, maybe even billboards, who knows? Yes, that makes me a total stage mom. :P I can't help it!
ANGUS IS WINNING NOW!!
