I know, I know, you want to go straight to the video. I can’t blame you. It’s awesome. But I need to explain a few things first, so hold your horses. I mean dogs. You’ll want to hear about the fun and the prizes.
First the fun. After viewing the video, you need to chose the baaaadest mother puppy in town. Steve? Dexter? You decide and vote by commenting on this blog post (comments on other posts won’t count). Whichever Yorkie loses has to concede that the other one is the baddest by praising him on Facebook and Twitter and — … really, whatever the winner chooses — for an entire week. Polls close on Sunday April 3 at midnight, EST. On Monday, I’ll post the winner — and the penalty he’s decided to impose on his worthy opponent.
Now the prizes, a choice of personalized collar or harness from Gangs of New Yorkie AND a custom portrait by Dexter’s Ruff Life — click on the links to their blogs for details about the goodies and also, on Gangs of New Yorkie, for bios of the two contenders for the title of Baddest Yorkie. Your vote in the comment qualifies you for the prizes. Like the vote, the contest closes at Sunday April 3, at midnight EST. I’ll choose the winner at random on Monday, April 4, and post that information too.
May the best — I mean the worst — dog win!

(are family members eligible?)
I don’t see why *my* relatives should be disqualified; I don’t have a dog in this race, as it were. I’ll let Dexter and Steve duke it out as to whether their family members should be allowed to take part.
no, my grandma was already disqualified! shes a sneaky old lady. is i related to you? i don’t tink i is related to a Rebecca, but my brain is de size of a peanut so i could be wrong. ???
aahhh, i didn’t see Edie’s post before i posted mine. if you is not related to Steve or me, i tink you should be ok. but you did vote for me so i could be a little bias…. 😉
Grrrrrrr! That vote was not mine?!
ha, ha — Rebecca is my niece!
#150 Foster dog thinks Dexter is the one!
#151 Yo Yo Yo, Dex got my vote!
#152 Definitely Steve – I love the tongue – got a yorkie myself with the same look!
