19th 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 1 more week 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!


“Meet our boy Tucker! You can’t see it in the picture but he has a white-tipped tale like a fox and when he’s all curled up he looks like the Firefox logo.”


“Munchkin – Loves his urban garden!”


“This is Dexter, a recent addition the neighborhood and a rescue puppy. He overcomes a birth defect by hopping along on 3 legs. Here he’s just chilling after another day hiking and chasing birds in Dolly Sods.”

Lots more great entries after the jump.


“Dexter has the best of both worlds – the warmth of the sun and the comfort of a plush chair.”


“Monty is 5 years old and has lived in Columbia Heights for 4 1/2 years. He enjoys laying on clean piles of laundry, squirrel watching and licking plastic bags. He likes eating weeds.”


“Izzie does not like being left behind.”


“Since her adoption from Last Chance Animal Rescue, Lola has demanded only the finest in mahogany cat furniture and Fancy Feast. Lola has parties and doesn’t invite anyone.”


“This is Lobo. She is a large dog trapped in a small dog’s body. And she loves the snow more than any dog I know.”


“Chuck is getting very comfortable sleeping on a bed after spending his early life on the streets.”


“”Lucy” is a brand new Petworth resident.”


“This is as ladylike as Coltrane gets in the summertime.”


“Though it’s not Charmin, I can not stress strongly enough what a mistake it would be to squeeze this particular pack of toilet paper.”


“Riley speaks loudly and devours a small stick.”
