Vote for Ziggy!

Yesterday I entered Ziggy in a photo contest. It's not really a photo contest. They call it that, but it's actually a popularity contest. Whatever dog gets the most votes wins their picture on the website for the following week. I was looking at all these pictures of cute dogs and puppies, and realized this would be a great way to get out the word about Ziggy. So I picked this picture.

This is not a great photo in any way, shape or form. The color, editing, and all those other things that professional pictures have are missing. And as for the subject of the photo... well, this is not the photo that would make any normal person want to adopt this dog. But here's the thing. All the other pictures in the contest are of cute, normal dogs. So what better way to get people's attention than to show them a picture of a very NOT normal dog? Hopefully they'll see the small picture, and want to take a closer look, so they'll click on it. Then they'll be able to read all about Ziggy, and even follow a link to his Fan Page. And maybe, just maybe, someone will read about him and say "I know a great home for that dog!".

So, if you're a Ziggy fan, please go vote for him. You don't have to log in or anything. You can vote once every 12 hours, and although he has almost no chance of winning, maybe it'll help him get noticed if he gets a lot of votes. Plus, if you vote, you can download this awesome "I Voted" sticker and let the world know that you voted for Ziggy. Feel free to put it on your blog or website or Facebook page with a link to Ziggy's voting page! Or if you really want to help Ziggy, just skip all the advertising and go ahead and adopt him. Really, that would be great. I'll drive him to you. No problem.

That's a great action shot, and shows Ziggy's "gung ho" personality of perfectly!

Of course I will vote for Ziggy! None of the others stand a chance against his wicked personality. I love your reasons for choosing this photo. It is totally unique, just like him.
