The contest seems to be shut down at the moment. This may bode well for us...the other day when they did this, the opened it back up a few hours later and several of the dogs (including Lyra) had quite a few votes removed for being from the same IP address. We had a few removed too, but not as many as others, and Angus was way in the lead when voting reopened.
Let us hope this happens again!
At any rate, I'll keep an eye out and let you know when voting reopens.
Thank you all so much for all your support. I really appreciate it!
You are welcome!
I tried voting when I got home from work at about 8pm (my time). It's now almost 1am & it's still closed.
It does say at the top of the page, Voting Opens: 10/1/09 Voting Closes: 10/8/09
Today is the 8th in the US so maybe it's just closed?
I too think there's something suspect about Lyra Bloom. No way is that dog better looking than Angus. I was so tempted to vote for the poor Pug. I know that mournful look so well!
Garth, I won't be mad if you vote for the pug. I voted for a couple others besides Angus too. Not Lyra.
