Today is the last day to vote in the library's 3rd Annual Pet Photo Contest. If you haven't stopped in to look at the 131 contestants, you're missing some cute mugs.
You can vote for your faves in four categories: Dog, Cat, Pocket Pet, and Farm Animal. Votes will be tabulated and the winners will be announced Monday. The top five photos in each category will be on display in the library's front display window and on the library's website. The winners in each category will receive $25 Ligonier Valley Chamber of Commerce Gift Certificates and their pictures in the Ligonier Echo.
Sassy the Bathing Beauty (at right) was chosen as the Grand Prize Winner by a panel of seven judges, which included the popular vet Dr. Croft, who sponsored the contest. Sassy is owned by the Palmer family and actually enjoys dressing up like this. She purrs throughout her photo shoot and refuses to allow her outfits to be taken off! The judges thought the pic was colorful and well thought out. I particularly like how her left arm and leg are draped over her perfectly laid back body. She looks ready to hit the beach or hang out with Kenny Chesney!
If you'd like to see Sassy and the other cute pics in the 3rd Annual Pet Photo Contest, stop by the library and vote today! Or, you can drop by and see the winners next week--or check them out on our web page at www.ligonierlibrary.org.
