It’s official: Dexter kicked Steve’s furry little butt in The Great Yorkie Bark-Off.
Steve put up a valiant fight. He had a cadre of fans who were charmed by his ever-present tongue, plus a very strong international following.But he messed with Piggie, Dex’s constant companion, by trying to enlist him in his Gang of New Yorkies. And a lot of Dexter’s followers thought that was low.
And, to be fair, Dexter engaged in a little side action, offering up a chance to win a Piggie in exchange for votes.
The bottom line: Dex is a baaad mother puppy. And he deserved to win.
Steve didn’t take defeat very well.
It wasn’t pretty. And it wasn’t cheap. Steve has expensive tastes in booze.
And now he’s going to have to face the consequences of his defeat — whatever penance Dexter decides — with a hangover.
And now what you’ve been waiting for: The winner of the contest, chosen by Random.Org, is #121: Bev Nicholson & Mugly, who commented “Dexter all the way! just love the hair on his ears. Sooo cute Mugly likes a hairy one!xx”
Congratulations! The prizes are a Gangs of New Yorkie collar or a harness AND a personalized portrait by Dex’s mom (see here). Mugly is in for some treats! The boys will both be in touch, Bev. When they recover from the bout.
