Dog Blog

The Dog Blog is a community of ordinary dog lovers who have come together to discuss our extraordinary dogs. Each Monday, a new topic is introduced. If you've got an opinion, share it. If not, look for the current "anything goes" topic and introduce a discussion of your own. On Fridays, weigh in about your training questions and successes.
Your host: Mike Lewis is a little-dog nerd and the proud owner of Eddie and Jillian, a pair of Yorkies who think they're huskies, and Lucy, a sweet Chessie. R.I.P., Rusty. Contact

Check out all the 2012 entries and see the results of the People's Champion Readers Poll

The readers have spoken: Stephan Kester's AT-AT AK-K9 is the winner of our readers poll, taking the title of "People's Champion" in the 2012 Dog Blog Howl-oween Costume Contest. Congratulations, Stephan! I think you also should get the Most Creative Name award, too!

Voting was light this year, but the impressive costume was the clear winner with 5 votes. Second place went to Zoe the leopard, who was also runner-up in the judged contest. Third place was a three-way tie between the Pug Dynasty Crew, Lila is Honey Bark Bark and Hooper the giraffe. Congratulations to all!

Thanks again to those who entered, those who viewed the pictures and those who voted. We'll see you again next year!
