26th 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. We’ll be wrapping up initial postings this week before the semifinal rounds commence. Remember if you have a favorite please let me know. Though, 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 Petunia; she is the self-appointed canine goodwill ambassador to the children of Columbia Heights. She is very happy perrita who loves the attention and is liberal in sharing her jump-and-lick with all who stop to pat her head.”


“Cornelius cooly contemplates Kennedy’s clever quips.”


“This is Clementine. She’s 1½ and a true Petworth pet. Here she’s chilling froggy style in the cool, cool grass at Clark Elementary during the current heat wave. Her favorite activities include walks around Sherman Circle, hikes at Rock Creek, playing with her doggie buds at Clark Elementary and keeping tabs on the neighborhoods squirrels.”

Lots more great entries after the jump.


“This is Mosby. This pose is one of the many ways he asks for belly rubs. He thinks he runs Logan Circle, which you would know if you have seen him trotting around the neighborhood with that big smile on his face. Thanks for your consideration!”
