Sunday Sisters: September 10, 2017

Final Update on the Pet Supermodel Contest

Notice that giant cat just over our shoulders? Well this photo seems appropriate for what I’m about to tell you. The results won’t be official until this Tuesday, but I fear that Tallulah and I failed to win, place, or show in the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest. On the last day, at the last minute, we lost third place to a cat–a cat!–that chased us from behind by more than 100 votes and snuck ahead of us as the contest ended.

Oh well, that silly cat may have third place, but Tallulah and I have the best friends ever. Thank you so very much for supporting us!

 


One Final Vote Request . . . and a Big Thank You

Hi, friends. Tallulah Bee here. My sister, Harper Lee, is off getting her hair done. Isn’t that so supermodel of her? Anyway, this is it. It’s the final day of voting in the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest. You think you’re excited? You should see our human mommy/blogging assistant/campaign manager. 😉 Thanks to all of you, Harper Lee and I are currently in third place. Great job, friends!

But you know what they say: It’s not over until the fat lady sings . . . or, in this case, until the puppy dog howls. Everyone is making a mad dash for the finish line–especially all of those cats that are chasing us–and goodness knows we don’t want to be caught from behind. So on behalf of my big sister and my human mommy, I’m staring into your soul with my sweet puppy eyes and asking you to vote one more time. Click here and then scroll down to click to page 5. You’ll find us at the bottom of page five, and then you know what to do. Remember, you can’t vote until 24 hours after your last vote and you can vote from multiple devices (once from your computer, once from your phone, once from your tablet, etc.). Voting ends today at 5 p.m. eastern time.

If Harper Lee and I place in the top three, we’re donating our prize to Zeus’ Rescues, a New Orleans shelter that welcomed pets from Hurricane Harvey and that in all likelihood will be doing the same for those displaced by Hurricane Irma. From the bottom of our Golden hearts, Harper Lee and I thank you more than you could imagine for supporting us this year. You truly are the best!


Cheers to You . . . Please Keep Voting

Cheers to you, friends! Thanks to your Pet Supermodel Contest votes yesterday, Tallulah and I shot up from eighth place to third place. Amazing! Oh, and just for the record, that glass of wine isn’t mine. It belongs to my human mommy/blogging assistant/campaign manager. She got it into gear and worked her tail off yesterday, so Tallulah and I let her take a little break last night.

But the break is over and it’s time to get back on the campaign trail. We have a cat chasing us for third place. A cat chasing a couple of dogs? That’s just not right . . . and it would be really horrible if a cat actually caught us. Talk about embarrassing. So you know what to do. Click here and scroll down. Then go to page five. You’ll have to scroll down again on page five, but you’ll find us there. Then just click inside the VOTE box. Remember . . . you can vote once every 24 hours (so if you vote at 10 a.m. one day, you can vote again at 10:01 a.m. the next day) and you can vote once from each device you own (computer, phone, tablet, etc.). Hang in there with us. Voting ends tomorrow at 5 p.m. eastern time and we want to finish in the top three so we can give our prize to Zeus’ Rescues, a local shelter that is helping pets from Hurricane Harvey.

Thank you so very much . . . and cheers!


(Wordy) Wordless Wednesday: Shameless Begging

You did it, friends. You came through yesterday. Tallulah and I moved up two spots to eighth place in the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest. Good news for our campaign manager (who also happens to be our human mommy/blogging assistant). You helped her save her job, but she’s still on the hot seat.

It’s time for a little more shameless begging for votes. (Hey, I’m a dog, so I’ve got this whole begging thing down.) It’s pretty simple. Just click here and then scroll down and go to page five and scroll down again. When you see our picture, click the VOTE box. Remember, you can vote every 24 hours (so if you voted at 10:00 a.m. yesterday, you can vote again at 10:01 a.m. today) and you can vote once from each device you own (once from your computer, once from your phone, once from your tablet, etc.).

Feel free to share with all of your friends through Facebook, Twitter, or old-fashioned word-of-mouth . . . and thank you, thank you, thank you!

Breaking News: Possible Campagn Staff Shake-Up

As you no doubt know by now, my sister and I are in a tough race. We’re trying the finish in the top three of the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest. Thanks to you–our fabulous friends–we entered the Labor Day Weekend firmly in control of fifth place and gaining on the contestants just ahead of us. And then our human mommy/blogging assistant/campaign manager took a little holiday break and let us down.

Tallulah and I find ourselves in 10th place–yes, that’s a dismal 10th place–as we enter the final days of Pet Supermodel Contest voting. I don’t know about you, friends, but if I don’t see a huge improvement in our polling numbers, I think a serious campaign staff shake-up may be in order.

If you want to save my human mommy/blogging assistant/campaign manager’s job, you need to click here to vote. Scroll down and click to go to page 5 (the more votes contestants have, the higher the page number they’re on . . . at least we still have that going for us) and click the VOTE box. Remember, you can vote once from each device you have (computer, phone, tablet, etc.) and you can vote once every 24 hours from each device (so if you vote at 10 a.m. one day, you can vote again at 10:01 a.m. the next day). Voting ends at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time September 8. Feel free to share this post with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, email . . . even old-fashioned word-of-mouth. Tallulah and I thank you . . . and our human mommy/blogging assistant/campaign manager really thanks you. 😉

 


(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Supermodels

 Tallulah and I want to be supermodels . . . and we want to help displaced animals from Hurricane Harvey. The Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest is underway and we need your votes to be top dogs in our human daddy’s company competition. If we place in the top three, we’re donating our prize to Zeus’ Rescues, a New Orleans shelter that has taken in animals from the path of Hurricane Harvey . . . so your vote really makes a difference.

It’s pretty simple. Click here. Scroll through the pages until you find our picture. Click the VOTE box. You can vote once every 24 hours from multiple devices (once from your computer, once from your phone, once from your tablet, etc.). Feel free to share . . . and thank you, thank you, thank you!

Sunday Sisters (Tuesday Edition): August 29, 2017–TIME TO VOTE

Remember more than a week ago when I promised you a special Saturday edition of Sunday Sisters with our photo entry for the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest? Then along came a certain fella by the name of Harvey . . . as in Hurricane Harvey . . . and our attention was diverted to friends and family in the Houston area. We’re happy to report that everyone we know and love is in relatively good shape, but the story is far from the same for so many. The area still faces seemingly insurmountable challenges, and the recovery will be long and hard, so we ask that you keep the people (and animals) of Texas in your thoughts and prayers. Here in New Orleans, we started feeling the first of Harvey’s rain bands yesterday. Tallulah and I have plenty of food and our human mommy has an adequate supply of wine (as long as this thing isn’t too long or too bad 😉 ), so we should be ok. With all this Harvey stuff, we’re more than ready for a fun-filled diversion. Bring on the Pet Supermodel Contest . . . and get ready to vote!

I present to you our photo submission for the Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest. The competition is tough and we’re getting a bit of a late start, so Tallulah and I could really use your votes. It’s pretty easy. Click this link to go to the contest website. There are several pages of pet photos, and the order changes every day, so you may have to scroll through a few pages to find our photo. Then you just click the VOTE box. You can vote once every 24 hours through Friday, September 8, at 5 p.m. eastern time. (That means that if you vote at 10 a.m. one day, you won’t be able to vote until just after 10 a.m. the next day.) And our humans have discovered that you can vote once from each device you have . . . one vote from your computer, one from your phone, one from your tablet, etc. We’re pretty sure that’s not cheating. Feel free to share this post with friends, because if Tallulah and I finish in the top three we’re donating our prize to Zeus’s Rescues at Zeus’ Place. They’re currently sheltering pets who were in the path of Hurricane Harvey, so they really could use the help.

Remember . . . vote early and often. In this case, it’s ok. 🙂 And Happy Tuesday!


Sunday Sisters: August 20, 2017

You’ll have to forgive us today. Tallulah and I are slightly exhausted from preparing for the Pet Supermodel Contest that our human daddy’s company holds every year. Each Winner (that’s what they call the employees at Impact Advisors) is invited to submit a photo or photos of their pets. The voting is open for two weeks and anyone can vote once every 24 hours. The top three vote getters win $150 to $50 in pet supplies or services.

Last year, we submitted separate photos. We did well–finishing in fourth and sixth place, thanks to all of our wonderful friends who voted for us–but we suspect that the separate entries might have split our votes. So this year, the humans got wise and decided to enter one photo featuring both of us. (I mean, who can resist two Golden girls in one picture?) From literally thousands of photos, the humans narrowed it down to four and then picked the one that we will enter in the contest.

These three contenders were the runners-up to the photo that we’ll be entering. Voting begins this coming Saturday (August 26), so expect to see our Impact Advisors 2017 Pet Supermodel Contest photo in a special Saturday edition of Sunday Sisters. And then expect daily begging for votes. (Hey, we’re dogs, so we’re really good at begging.) You might get a little tired of the begging, but we want you to know that it’s for a good cause. If Tallulah and I finish in the top three, we’ll be donating our prize to Zeus’ Rescues at Zeus’ Place.

So Happy Sunday, and get ready to vote vote vote!

 


Yep, I’m Begging

img_20150519_154145

You’re right. It’s me. Again. Begging. One last time. The 2016 Impact Advisors Pet Supermodel Contest ends in less than 24 hours, and it’s oh so close. Well, maybe not the top two spots. Those cats are still way out in the lead and a pretty cute dog is about a hundred points behind them. Then in third place we have Bruce. Sure. He’s cute. But he’s not me. So it’s time to make my case one last time for why I should end up in the top three of the Pet Supermodel Contest.

Trick 3 thek9harperlee

Honestly, can Bruce top this bathing suit look? Sure, that was three years ago, but I’ve still got it.

About Facelift 1 thek9harperlee

And every supermodel needs to do formal occasions, right? Got that one covered.

Plus I’m sporty. Hey, bowling’s a sport. I’ve seen it on ESPN. So please, please, please . . . could I have your vote just one more time? (Remember, if you’ve voted before you can vote again. Unlike that silly human election, you get one vote per pet every 24 hours.)  You have until Friday, September 30, at 5 p.m. EST to cast your ballot.

This is my photo submission for the Pet Supermodel Contest. You can click here for a link to the ballot box to cast your vote for me.

And I guess I should be a good sister and ask you to vote for Tallulah Bee too. She’s currently in fifth place with another cute dog hot on her heels. Here’s Tallulah’s submission. You can click here for a link to the ballot box to cast your vote for her.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. The winners (well, we’re all winners, but the top vote getters) will be announced Monday, October 3, and I’ll share the results with you. And I promise . . . after today, no more begging from me. I mean no more begging for votes. I’ll still beg for food. 😉


Still Sizzling in September (and Voting Continues)

Audubon Park Willow Tree // September 25, 2016

Each month this year, Tallulah Bee and I have joined our humans for a photo session in New Orleans’ Audubon Park. We pose on about the same weekend each month (the third or fourth weekend), at about the same time of day (early morning), and at the same spot (in front of a little willow tree that stands next to a pond). When we finished our August photo shoot, we really thought we were saying goodbye to the miserable hot days of summer. Wrong. A few days ago, with tongues hanging out, Tallulah and I did our best to look cool for our sizzling September entry. The weather humans have confirmed that this summer has been unusually warm hotter than blazes: 43 nights during which the temperature did not drop below 80 degrees, shattering the previous record of 13 set in 2010. Enough, Mother Nature. We’re ready for a cool, crisp photo shoot in October.

still-sizzling-2-thek9harperlee

And a little more about our monthly photo sessions in the park. Mommy never ever gets “the shot” on the first try. Tallulah is easily distracted, so it takes a little time and effort. Thank goodness for digital photography!

vote-2-thek9harperlee

Just a quick reminder that voting in my human daddy’s company Pet Supermodel Contest continues. Thank you so very much for all your votes so far. As I dictate this blog post to my human mommy/blogging assistant/typist, I’m in fourth place (with 156 votes) and Tallulah is in fifth place (with 147 votes). Our chances of catching the leaders are pretty slim. (A couple of cats are hanging on to first place with 555 votes and two dogs are in second and third, one with 546 votes and the other with 241 votes.) I’d cry foul and ask for an inquiry into voter fraud, but they’re all pretty cute, so I’m sure the vote count is legit. Anyway, we have a couple of dogs in an inflatable boat who are gaining on us, so remember to vote early and often . . . totally legal in this case.

You can click here for a link to the ballot box to cast your vote for me.

vote-4-thek9harperlee-2

You can click here for a link to the ballot box to cast your vote for Tallulah.

Remember: One vote per pet every 24 hours and voting closes at 5 p.m. central time Friday, September 30. Thank you!

P.S. Please feel free to share!
