23rd 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!

Please don’t make up names and “vote” for your pet multiple times. If you do so, and I catch you, (which is not hard to catch) your pet will be disqualified.


“This is my 9 month old Cream Frenchie named Truvy. She is gonna be the Hostess at Logan 14 Aveda Salon and Spa when I open the end of August.”


“This is Roo, a cockatiel. In addition to flying around the apartment, he likes to whistle the Andy Griffith theme song and play games of hide-and-seek with his humans.”


“This is Percy the rabbit that I adopted from the Humane Society. Since it is not too safe to bring him outside to enjoy grass underfoot, I bring the (wheat) grass to him.”

Lots more great entries after the jump.


“This is my dog Sage – the coolest lab in Petworth.”


“This is our cat Kiwi she loves to stretch out and get her belly rubbed”


“This is Winnie. She still hasn’t quite figured out the whole sunbathing thing.”

Lucille Butterbean Bahrenburg-Schefter; (2010- )


“This is our dog Radar. He is the happiest when he is swimming or just hanging out with his mom and dad. He had a rough life until we rescued him and is very happy to call Petworth his new home.”


“Our dog Cosby refuses to leave Petco, lying down in a parking lot protest.”

Desi and Zima

“Meet my sweet kittens, Desi and Zima… they are brother and sister and I adopted them from the Washington Humane Society back in April.”


“This is Owen Spunkmeyer. His spit-bubble is attributable to the sight of sweet cats on the sidewalk of Edgewood where he resides. Owen is also known as the Riddler, due to the question mark on his snout.”


“Stacey Vaeth took this great photo of Dudley anxious to get home and back to bed after a busy day in the park.”
