Phil Wins Second Place!

Can you stand just one more Phil story? LOL!

I entered my Sweet Philly Boy in our local Walmart's Annual Prettiest Pet Contest this year...on a flook really, and he won Second Place! I could not be more proud!

The voting goes like this...The pet pictures are attached to jars & people "vote" w/ change & dollar bills for the one they think is the prettiest. The money goes to a Great cause...The Childrens Miracle Network. There was lot's of competition too! I was really surprised when I got the call on Tuesday..."Congratulation! Phil has won second place...you can come & pick up his pet portrait & gift certificate at any time."

I got off the phone & told Hubs...To which he smiles & says..."How much did YOU Vote?" What a Smarty Pants he is! Hmmmph! I voted 5 dollars worth, thank you very much! hehehe
