Or at least she’s really trying her best at it.  When you have hair as long as the Vampire Wife’s, you probably need an extra hand… errr… paw now and then.

Finalists Announced!

Finally the finalists for Duchess’ Spring Cleaning Contest!  I know we said that there would be three finalists, but there were just too many to choose from, so there are five.  Duchess is going to have a hard time deciding which one to choose!

Darwin makes it in the finals for doing the “goofy Dane ears” while she’s getting washed.

Rumor makes it in for being the most artistic.

Honey makes it to the finals for the most creative bath place!

Mango is a finalist for looking the most pitiful of all the entries.

And Tucker (as a puppy) makes it into the finals for being the most enthusiastic!

We’ll hopefully get the video shot this weekend of Duchess picking her winner.  Everyone keep your paws crossed!

Okay everyone – the big announcement is here!  I’m sponsoring Duchess’ Spring Cleaning Contest where we will judge the best pictures of your doggie getting a bath.  Here are the simple rules:

1.)  Take a picture of your doggie getting cleaned up (or you may already have one).  They can be in the bathtub, outside, in a wading pool, the groomer’s… wherever!

2.) E-mail ONE picture to me at lifewithduchess at hotmail.com by APRIL 26th (I extended the deadline a week since a lot of people are saying that they may not make the deadline) (put the @ symbol in there… keeping it out of this entry for spam reasons).  That gives you plenty of weekends and plenty of opportunities to get dirty doggies.

3.) In the e-mail include your dog’s name, your human’s name, your blog address, and please do not photoshop or alter your pictures.

4.) The three members of the executive council (me, the Vampire Wife, and The Boy) will choose our favorite photo each, then Duchess will choose the winner (yes you read that right).

5.) The winner will receive either a $20 donation made in their name to a rescue or shelter of their choice, or a $20 gift card to Drs. Foster & Smith – whichever they choose.

6.) Place this button on your blog in the sidebar to let everyone know you’re competing!

Here is the code for the graphic that you can just cut and paste into your blog.
