30 Dogs, a Duck, and a Cat enter a…..CONTEST

Dog Contestants 

It was so, darn, hard to pick one dog that captures the physical characteristics and character of Charlie Mack’s dog, Hamm.  Hamm is not a small dog.  Although, as our contest entries show, small dogs have confidence, and mighty good looks.

All our pooch contestants were ones with a lot of heart. A couple admitted they were too old for the job, and being an old girl myself, I fell in love with them. Hi Betty and Brutie!

Betty & Brutie

As the song goes:  Hamm may not be the dog some girls think of as handsome, but to Charlie’s heart he carries the key.  So our distinguished, regal dogs were not quite the right fit.  You know who you are: Windsor, Frisby, and Darcy.

Still Hamm is smart, protective, and lovable.  He likes to sleep.  A lot.  So the photos of doggies sleeping on the job, spoke to me.  Shout out to Dublin, Nancy & Lillie, and Quinn.

Hamm’s hair is more long than short, so our adorable short-haired dogs….sorry.
