  1. UNLIKE PETMEDS, this top 10 list is so stupid, not personal to the dogs, but their owners, I can tell a lot of the photos submitted were not even FOR the contest, didn’t even make any effort to take a PHOTO for the contest itself. YOU SUCK!!!!!

  2. Contests are just exactly that. It happens or it doesn’t. So many are complaining about not getting to vote, but I finally realized that you have to wait 24 hours; not just vote whenever each day. As far as the cats, go, maybe they didn’t share as much as the dogs did and maybe they just didn’t get the votes. I’m sorry for the humans who are complaining because if you look at your cat or dog, they are just as happy doing what they’re doing right now…being loved. Congratulations to those of you who made the Top Ten and in the long run, all the pets who were in the contest are winners because they have homes and are not out on the streets. ♥♥♥ 😮 )

  3. To the ones that didnt make the top 10. This contest wasnt for the cutest or smartest pet or cutest picture. It was for who knew the most people so they could vote for their pet contest. So dont worry to much if your pet didnt make the top 10.

  4. No matter what … you will always have a group who feels they were done wrong.~ You either got the votes .. or you did NOT …the votes were every 24 hours..so you couldn’t vote at 5:pm and then try again at 7:00am the next morning… and the ones who just stuck a photo on there and walked away .. and then expect something without a bit of effort …well.. here ya go.

    Congratulations to the top ten winners … I’m sure you put a allot of effort forward to make it happen … Great job !!

  5. I have to agree with many of the others. I also would like to share that we must realize all our posting and pushing people to go to PetMeds is a great way of advertizing for them. You see this is a great publicity and marketing catch as I am in marketing myself and have use these kinds of promotions all the time. It was fun though even though we know it would of taken them alot longer than 48 hours to research and read comments on owner 3,500 dogs are you kidding me no way. bet you will never see that winner in the commercial too. But this is all business folks I am in it myself. its all for fun and well we can only hope right. so really know they wont invest in an updated system that shows the vot3es because it all costs money. I know we all put alot of hard work and time in this but thats life. Pet Meds also made more sales on their products this past month than in the last 3 years. Remeber they buy there Meds from overseas some outdated too I know this from a reliable source. Well get over it all losers we were duped!!!!

  7. I agree! I missed out on the entire first two days of voting because I couldnt find my dog. I’m very upset with the winners chosen.

  8. Honestly speaking my dog did not make the top ten ( Mista Mann ) but I would like to congratulate the top 10 Pooches that did make it! I feel that it is wrong for the folks that did not make it to make nasty comments :-(. Don’t Hate! Congratulate! A lot of my folks tried to vote also and couldn’t. Maybe pet meds will correct this issue next time. Hopefully there will be a place for cats too :-). God Bless pet lovers.

  9. I didn’t see my votes either. i just assumed you couldn’t see them.

  10. Specially the part where each one of the voters is asked to give out all their fb information just to be able to vote.

  11. I would like to congratulate all the winners as well as all those who participated. As one writer previously mentioned, all these dogs at least have someone who cares for them and they are not the unfortunate ones who are currently on death row or roaming the streets emaciated.
    That being said, I want to specially congratulate BELLA POMERANIAN, who is one of the ten selected. For those who don’t know this dog, Bella has her own Face Book page; she is the POM-bassador for Southern California Pomeranian Rescue. Bella’s mom in addition to her regular job, works extensive hours sewing up a storm in hand making items to raise money for the rescue. I am so thankful and grateful, for Bella so beautifully marketing these items, because without asking she and her mom helped raise money for my dog that had a broken neck and unable to walk, raised money for the major surgery as well as stepped in and helped others as well. Bella and mom goes out in their Pom-mobile and pick up dogs from shelters, or from other sources where other dogs may be in imminent danger. I am grateful to all those who were a stepping stone in my dog Tumbelina Pomeranian recovery. There are many like me in the group that can share similar stories of how Bella’s presence has placed a smile on their face and hope in their future.

  12. I think PetMeds learned a lot about hosting a online contest. It may not have been run the way we wanted but you have to admit that it was kind of exciting and fun to promote our pets and read the comments our supporters posted.

    And reading the comments from the participants you can hear the pride the have in their pets. They are all stars to each and every one of us.

    Congratulations to the finalists.

  13. Why wasn’t there any cat finalists?? There should of been an even number of cats and dogs. Doesn’t the “Petmeds” mascot have a dog AND A CAT??? . I’m extreamly disappointed.

  14. Congrats to the winners but My Dog, Leon Gunner, wants a recount and a investigation……..LOL

  15. Not all the votes were counted. I know many of my friends who voted, didn’t even show up as being counted! It wasn’t even my dog and I thought it was inconsistant and incorrect information. It was hard to find the dog you wanted to vote for more than once. Maybe next time assign at least page numbers!

  16. Geeze people–it was only a contest, just like any other. The pets who got the most votes won, just like American Idol or any other people-voting contest. All pets are beautiful in their own way—-so therefore, all our pets are winners to us!!!!

  17. Re: Negative comments against PetMeds Contest:

    Certainly, I, wish my pet would have won 🙂 like all of the pet owners who entered. I can’t help but remind all of us “Wonderful Pet Owners” that PetMed offered this program for Fun, No Cost & No Obligations; this is a company that offers “low prices for medications” to help us afford our pets AND keep them healthy 🙂 Many Veterinarians can’t or choose not to offer low prices & many owners give up their precious pets due to not being able to afford medical care due to inflated prices. Yes, I do realize it’s likely that part of the reason PetMed’s offered this “Fun” contest was to build business/marketing efforts in this crazy economy, but what company is not trying to honestly survive? I am asking that pet owners read what I have wrote below, prior, to leaving negative comment’s regarding the contest and PetMeds.

    ” Please Read On? ” If you have not experience PetMed’s “reduced medications” please give PetMeds a call when “your vet” tells you how much your pet’s medication is going to cost when you reach for your wallet. (PetMed’s saves me $130.00 monthly due to my pets on going necessary medications. ALSO.. 🙂 when my vet tells me the price of a ONE time medication I ask if my pet can wait a day or two for the medication. IF SO, I call PetMeds immediately for a price (takes a 3 minutes phone call while you are still at the vet prior to paying the bill). 99% of the time I receive a MUCH lower cost AND it’s shipped to my home FEDX (within 24hrs or 2 day if the pet can wait longer than 24 hrs) and the TOTAL price with shipping is STILL less than the vet was able to offer me.

    Just please consider the simply phone call and experience “How PetMeds Sincerely helps you, your pet and your budget.” Yes we are all disappointed that we did not win, however I am ****Truly Grateful for PetMed’s efforts***** to help me “financially” keep my Big, loving angel pets. If not for PetMeds’, I would have had to find new homes or bring their little hearts to the humane society/rescue. SO 🙂 🙂 🙂 Thank you PetMed’s for a contest that was fun and made me smile at EVERY entered photo I had a chance to view!

    Sincerely, Cindy, Bucky and Merlot! Big HUGS & sloppy kisses to everyone! (Please put PetMeds number into your cell phone now… it is 800-738 6337)

  18. Ditto

  19. Thank you Julie for putting this nice comment about Bella. Her mom and her do work very hard to raise money for the Southern California Pomeranian Rescue. The rescue also came to Iowa and rescued several Poms from a puppy mill and drove them back to California. They cleaned them up and had them vet checked, and put them up for adoption. I think she deserves to win plus she gave her winnings to the rescue. What would you have done with the winnings? Bless Bella and her mommy’s hearts for all the hard work they do there will be a special place in Heaven for them!

  20. The winner of the PetMeds contest has been announced and I didn’t win. PetMeds… PetShmeds. Mommy told me to be gracious so I won’t say the judges stink even though I think they stink on ice. I’m not bitter… I’m just saying… they might stink because I didn’t win the contest and I didn’t even win a cat toy. If I gave a rats patoot, I would write the judges and tell them what I think of them but I don’t. They can “talk to the butt” for all I care and if they ever have another contest and think that I will enter, they’ve got another think coming. Mommy says I will always be her little “star” and besides who wants to go on TV and make a stinky commercial for PoopheadsMeds. I’m not even disappointed and I’m not crying, I just have something in my eye. I hope I didn’t disappoint all my fans. I have to go and unpack my suitcase because I’m not going anywhere now; and I have to help Sunny Papoochie take down my “Congratulations, Fatboy Babushka” banner that he made for me. Hugs and Kisses to all my fans”. Love, Fatboy Babushka. P.S. “Congratulations to the dog who won the contest…. I was just wondering… can you quack? No? Well, I can. Oh… and do you have a big fluffy tail? No? Well, I do. Oh… and can you groom yourself? No? Well, I can ….. because I’m a cat….. just sayin’.”

  21. “I think the judges stink on ice”. FatboyBabushka.

  22. O)h my gosh I am laughing so hard you pout a huge smile on my face this morning. Thats what it is all about. Cute stories that make us laugh and you tell that Fatboybabushka I am his fan and he is a winner in my heart. Tell him he really didnt miss out on much his personality and cuteness makes us all us that didnt win laugh it off and get over it. xoxox

  23. Oh FatBoy Babushka!…. so sorry 🙂 That was funny!!!!!
