This was such a fun contest to run. We here at Pacifica Patch loved seeing all the adorable dogs in the photos our readers uploaded, and it was fun keeping up with everyone's votes in the comments section. We're so glad so many votes came in, because if it had been up to us to choose the cutest dog, there's no way we could have chosen!
Thanks so much to everyone for participating!
Now, for the winner.
Drum roll, please.....
Congratulations to Sadie, a 126-pound Neapolitan Mastiff, for being our winner of the "Cutest Dog in Pacifica" contest!
And congratulations to Sadie's "mommy," Victoria Soares, who entered her!
The "runner-up" dog who also received many votes was George Underwood. Congrats to Toni Underwood who entered him!
Victoria and her adorable pooch, Sadie, get to choose a $25 gift card to one of two local, independent pet stores - at 1625 Palmetto Ave., or at 454 Manor Plaza. We thank the owners of these stores for their support and, since Patch always loves to support local small businesses, we hope our readers will patronize these great stores in the future.
Victoria, please e-mail Pacifica Patch Editor Christa Bigue at firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number, e-mail address and mailing address, as well as which store you would like your gift card for, so we can get you and Sadie your prize right away!
Runner-up winner: Toni, please e-mail Christa Bigue as well to receive a Patch canvas tote bag.
Watch for more fun contests on Pacifica Patch in the near future, and thanks so much for reading our site.
