17th Set of Entries for the 2010 Coolest Pet in PoPville Contest

Ed. Note: The deadline has passed for entries, we got over 300! If you missed the deadline, save your shots for next year, sorry no exceptions. I will be posting initial entries for 2 more weeks or so before the semifinal rounds commence. Remember if you have a favorite please let me know. If you emailed a photo of your pet I promise all photos will be posted, patience please, there are tons (literally hundreds) of pets in PoPville!


“This is Tyranny. She moved to DC all the way from Puerto Rico (will this poor dog *ever* get to live in a state?!). She’s so ecstatic to be here….note the intensity of the tail wag.”



“I’m Izma Enchilada, sometimes referred to as Lil EZ-E, or Zak Attack. I was saved from a kill shelter in the south where they believe all pit-bulls to be mean and ferocious animals. If you know me, you know I’m the exact opposite: I’m the biggest softy around these parts!”

Lots more great entries after the jump.


“This is Pugsley; I am positive he believes he is a small pug. He grunts like one and meows ALOT (his form of barking). He is a 2-year old rescue from birth – I found his mother abandoned, and she had 5 babies. He is one of them, so in a way, I created this dapper monster.

You can see him on YouTube washing his face here.”

Ruby & Stella

“Zak and Jake are two rescue kittens that are now living the good life on the unit block of Seaton NW with their two Dads.”

“Medea and Grendel leaving the city for the day to go to wine country!”


“Clementine once ate a bear. That’s why there are no dogs allowed at the zoo.”

“I have attached photos of my two hairless sphynx cats, Lucien (black) and Ichabod (gray).”


“Rosie cat – the easiest way to dust the inside your piano.”
