Hey, we certainly don’t have any hard feelings as the folks at DogTime Media announce the winners of the 2013 DogTime Pet Blog Awards–also known as “The Petties,” or “The Contest That We Don’t Win.” The important thing is that we have a real chance to learn about websites that are doing a fine job of providing fun info about pets. Yes, it doesn’t matter if we’re unfairly ignored. It’s far more important that these other sites get some attention.
Besides, what would we do with a Petties trophy? It’s not like our mom could put it on the refrigerator–and that $1,000 that goes to each winner ends up being passed on to an animal shelter or pet rescue group of their choice. Speaking of which, let’s be sure to mention Jason Flatt–who, as the founder of Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue in Dallas, Georgia–is this year’s winner of the 2013 Unsung Hero award. That pays off with a $10,000 donation to Jason’s group. That’s some big bucks that are well deserved.
So check out all of these other winners, and visit this link to The Petties for some great pet videos. And don’t forget to come back to us sometime, okay? Yeah. We’ll be right here…
