Drum roll please!! The moment that you have been waiting for has finally arrived! LaDiff has received over 800 entries: photos of your furry friends lounging away and enjoying the good life. Every picture captured its own unique statement, whether it was a sleepy golden retriever taking a quick nap on the family couch or Felix the cat hanging out on his back watching TV. The contest was amazing, and we thank all of our customers (and future customers!) for participating!
As you all may know, we have teamed up with CBS 6 to donate 50 cents to the Richmond SPCA for every new like to the Facebook page during the contest period. Thanks to your support, we added over 1200 new likes and together we raised over $600.
Now on to the Couch PETato contest winners! The results are in and it’s time to give away some fab’ LaDiff cash!
The first place win goes to Dolly, a 12 year old retired racing greyhound. Originally from the Florida panhandle, Dolly raced in about 135 races before retiring at age 4. Her owner Nerice says Dolly is very good at getting her way, all she has to do is “flash those puppy dog eyes and I’m a goner.” Dolly is often called upon to be an ambassadog for greyhound adoption and she helps do home visits for prospective adoptions in the Richmond area. Congratulations to Dolly and to Nerice!
Our second place winner is Thurston. Thurston is a 7 year old English Bulldog who lives with his owner Cindy. Thurston has friends all over the United States, even Hawaii! He wants to thank them all for their support in voting and following him throughout the contest. Thurston loves to travel in a motorhome, meeting new friends and visiting old ones, and his favorite act of love is a great belly rub (while lying on the couch of course).
Third place goes to Princess, whose brother Twinkles was both jealous and proud of her win. Princess and Twinkles live with their owner Sheniqua. Princess loves to lie down on soft items such as furniture, pillows, and blankets. Before she gets comfortable, she likes to fluff the blankets first. Princess is over 12 years old, but she is young at heart. Her favorite activity is playing with her stuffed animals and playing fetch with them until she tears all the stuffing out.
Congratulations to our three winners, and thank you to all of YOU for participating in our contest. We had a few voting hiccups along the way, and we want to assure you that only the ‘legal’ votes were counted when determining our three winners.
Please thank your pets, shake a paw or two, and come on down to LaDiff to enjoy the fruits of your labor. While you’re here, be sure to pick out a cool chair for YOU, since your awesome four-legged Couch PETato has obviously taken over yours.
