Congratulations, Deirdre Fitch, and her dog, Mink!
Nearly 50 photos were uploaded in our first ever Lovable Dog Photo Contest!
From backseat drivers to couch potatoes and pups ready for Halloween, these photos make anyone smile, laugh and say "ahhhhh!"
In December, we asked readers to share their photos on Gulfport Patch. Then, last week, we called on everyone to vote for the most lovable dog in the comments section!
Mink came in first with 20 votes.
Our second and third place pups are photo #4, TippyJane & Gabby, and Photo #31, Jackie Ballard's sleeping Boston Terriers.
Special thanks to everyone who participated and helped Mink receive a $25 gift card to Petco!
Stay tuned for our next fun photo contest on Gulfport Patch!
