That Time Finn was in People Magazine

Rave about your dog link-up? I'm in! I am linking up with Adriana and Katie for their Tall Tails Roundup!
 
So if you're new around here you should probably know I have a slight full blown obsession with my dog Finnley, Finn for short. You know, for when he is in trouble and needs a longer name to know just how mad I am at him? If you haven't read how I became his mama go here.
 
Soon after we rescued Teddy B. Finn we knew we had a ridiculously cute pup on our hands.
So one day at work, one of my building engineers encouraged me to enter him in a contest to be the next Dentastix model. You know...this dog?
So I submitted him a couple weeks after we got him and then didn't think about it again. The contest was to put teeth on your dog and then have them say something clever. (To which I sadly cannot recall what I wrote him saying). This was his entry.
One day I received an e-mail stating that we were a semi-finalist! I had forgotten all about the contest since it was three months ago and was super excited.
 
And after some waiting we found out that Finnley had beat out over 9,000 entries to be crowned the Denture Your Dog Contest winner! We were thrilled!
 
So after a photo shoot in the city with a video crew, trainer (the same trainer who trained Marcel from Friends!) and photographer(s). Our little rescue was having his shining moment!
Pedigree Photo shoot
 
And win big we did! We received a years worth's of Dentastix and a full page ad in People Magazine back in September 2010! Look there we are right next to Britney Spears! :)
 So the saying is true...
 All you need is love...and a dog...and a baby. Yeah I am going to need one of those soon too. Until then Finn gets all the lovin'!
