Most of you will NOT be surprised, once I reveal the subject of last week's contest that (insert drum roll here) the winner was none other than...WILLOWTREE! A fat congratulations goes out to him, as he emailed me the winning answer. It just doesn't get more precise than this, folks:
"That is the closest thing to you when you get down and look a dog straight in the eyes...Ok, you've turned your head (and camera) 90deg to the right. No wait!! Left left. It's between the nostrils and the right hand side of the photo is towards the mouth."
Second place goes to Desert Songbird, as she was technically the very first to comment by email as such:
"Okay, I’ve stared at it and got past my really obscene thoughts, so here is what I think it is…I think it’s a dog’s nose. A really close section of a dog’s nose, probably your dog, but I’m not sure what kind of dog."
Third place goes to Raffi, because his(?) comments had to be the most bizarre and creative. I now wonder what planet Raffi might be from. You'll have to read his comments on the original post to see what I mean. (And Raffi, I just assumed you were a dude - your profile didn't tell me exactly one way or the other. But we're both originally from the OC, so hopefully you're cool with that.)
So - now for the photo from whence the close-up came. It's my Poo Woo! Isn't he cute?
I actually like this second photo better, but the nose wasn't quite as clear for the contest:Okay, winners, email me your mailing addresses, and I'll get your prizes out to you. And thanks to everyone for participating!
