I just checked the contest results this morning. Apparently, Shama has won the Cutest Pet contest! 馃コ Congratulations to Shama and @ShamaMama and Papa. The three of you are such great Ambassadors for the Havanese breed. Job well done!

Special recognition goes to Boo and @BoosDad for their contributions and tireless efforts in promoting a good cause - both the Humane Society and SHAMA!

And thank you to all the Havanese Forum members who contributed to the winning contestant, Shama. Your donations will help in making life better for the neglected animals that need a helping hand especially at this time of year. I doubt there is any other breed specific group that has such a dedicated, generous, and "spirited" membership! You guys are good people and why shouldn't you be, you are Havanese peeps! 馃憦 FIST BUMP 馃

Agree that BoosDad deserves special recognition for his great roll as a booster. His reminders certainly helped me remember to not forget to vote...

And of course the Havanese deserved to win because she was the best of showcase!

Thank you again for all your support. I will let you know when we've heard official word from the contest organizers. So far nothing, but they said they'd notify the winner around January 5.

Thank you, DogFather! When I first looked, we had 10 votes, then 120, now 520! Very exciting!

The contest goes through December 19 if anyone wants to keep an eye on it!

Read the whole thread; it's a cliffhanger, until an elderly Havanese comes to the rescue!

I posted Chase鈥檚 holiday pic in one of the Christmas threads, but I鈥檓 including a pic here too from today. Chase has taken to standing up more and doing little tricks like spinning around while standing. Here鈥檚 his best Oliver Twist, 鈥楶lease Sir if you can spare a crumb鈥 馃ズ

Oliver Twist was written by Charles Dickens probably best known for writing "A Christmas Carol."

To complete Chase's connection to Dickens and Oliver Twist...

Dickens owned one dog. What breed was it?

Where did Dickens acquire the dog? (probably in Florida)

What did Dickens name his dog? (he named it "Timber Doodle" but called him Tiny Tim, the lame little boy in A Christmas Carol - "A Merry Christmas to us all; God bless us, every one!" - Tiny Tim. There are some reports that the dog was a bit lame and walked with a limp, but maybe that was because the front legs are genetically shorter than the rear and it only appeared to be limping.)

I'm giving way too many hints!

Chase is in some pretty good company and I have some insider knowledge that he is a smart little boy and he may be begging for food, but hardly a desperate pauper!

From ShamaPapa:

ShamaMama emailed the paper to make sure they had her correct email address. They said the check wasn't ready yet. It was a bit odd, because there was never an official message of congratulations. The latest paper announces Shama as the winner.
