Prize-Winning Lady

I entered a photo competition a while back on a blog called Schnauzer Days (please visit them!), and a photo of Pip did the unthinkable... and won. This is the winning photo:

You may notice that Pip's a lot darker in it, and that's because it was taken in March, before she um... faded. You can see the photo in context here.

Anyways, we somehow won, and our prizes arrived on Wednesday, much to Pip's delight!

Of course, Teddy needs an excuse to appear in this post, so he stole borrowed Pip's new toy.

At least someone was having fun.

Then it came to the treats. True to form, Pip gently took one.

And Teddy stole borrowed two.

And promptly ate one and ran around with the other.

This is not the face of innocence...

...But the face of evil.

And on top of all that prize-winning awesomeness, there was a beautifully framed photo of Pip.

So a big thanks to Dex and Louis, everyone who voted for Pip, and a big thanks to the girl herself, Pip!

  11. That is a beautiful photo of Pip because of the restful, nostalgic feeling it gives one. Puppies shall be forgiven for stealing! He is too cute to be evil!
