Rolling, rolling, rolling...

"Do people love their pets?" we wondered. You, America, have answered with a resounding, "HECK yeah." Actually, no. It's stronger than that. You LOVE your pets (all caps for emphasis). LOVE THEM.

And we think that's awfully nice. (Really.) (We also love your pet. Who wouldn't? Look at that face....)

How did we arrive at this conclusion? Your collective pet-love means we are now knee-deep in submissions (and by knee-deep, we mean "thousands"). See? You LOVE your pets.

Anyway, judging begins next week. That's when we judges get to start seeing all the magic you have created with Fluffy and Sparky's photos. It stinks to wait, but wait we must. All's fair in love and this here contest.

Oh and just so you know, in the interest of being fair, we are not going to be picturing "favorites so far" (even once judging starts) since voting won't begin until the finalists are picked. Every finalist gets an equal crack at the Grand Prize.

And when are the finalists revealed, you ask? Well, we're glad you asked...

67 (silly, adorable, hilarious) pet photo card finalists will be revealed on 3/3! (And not a moment sooner.)

seriously, throw the thousands of submissions away and just pick my adorable Boston Terrier, Vito! He's Rad with a capital "R"!

I do not envy the judges the task ahead of them - I'm sure each and every photo is a winner in itself and selecting just a few from all the entries will be mind-boggling. Even if my little "pitas" don't win,they will always be winners to me. But I'm still in there hoping for the best for my Piper and Harley!!!! Pat
