Okay, so I know I already posted soliciting votes for Electra, but the voting ends tomorrow (the 27th) and we are neck and neck with the fuzzy terriers!

Aaaarrrrggghhh! The terriers cannot win!

Really, I’m not much of a competitive person by nature. Sure, I enjoy a good challenge, but really I’m much too easygoing and far more interested in having fun than pounding my opponent into the ground.

This Cutest Pet Contest has got me all fired up though, and I’ll tell you why…

It’s not really about the terriers. Well, not the terriers in the contest anyway. Really, I have nothing against them. I do have something against this terrier, however…

That, my friends, is the Devil incarnate (otherwise known as Indiana). Indy belongs to our friend Foerth, and if you’d like to read up on either one of them to get a little of the back story (and a few laughs), here are a few links…

I Have Seen the Devil and His Name is Indiana

But…I Looked It Up Online


Go Fish

A Fistful of Condiments

For those of you who don’t know the story, our buddy Foerth moved out to Arizona about a year after Steven and I moved there. He got a teaching job, and needed a place to stay while he got settled and found his own place, so he moved in with us.

Unfortunately, Indiana moved in with him.

Now, I’ll admit, I was actually sort of excited that there was going to be a dog in the house. I thought maybe having Indy around would soften Steven’s resolve against us having a dog of our own. Honestly, looking back, I don’t know how I ever talked Steven into actually adopting Electra after having Devil Dog around.

When we first brought Electra home, all she wanted to do is what she does best…sniff the yard and sleep on the couch…

But, every time she tried to settle in, Indy the Asshole was there to pester her, nipping her cheeks and ears, yipping at her with his shrill doggy voice. After almost a week of almost constant torture, Electra finally fought back and put Indy in his place…

But even a good ass-kickin’ didn’t stop Indy from constantly seeking opportunities to nip and chase and pounce. And if that wasn’t enough, Indy made a point to destroy all of Electra’s toys, chew up books on our bookshelves and my jumpdrive with all of my notes, handouts, and students’ papers on it, and just routinely make a nuisance of himself.

Hell, we couldn’t even take a cute picture of Electra without Evil Indy lurking in the background…

Seriously, that dog is not normal.

So, you see, it’s not about Electra losing the Cutest Pet Contest, and it’s not even about winning, it’s about not getting beat by a couple of fuzzy terriers that resemble Devil Dog. I’m sure those pups are sweet, and I know their owner loves them. And hell, I know she wants to win the contest because she’s gone out and solicited over 150 votes for her little doggies. But here’s the deal, folks…


End of story. Let her lose to any other mutt in the contest. Hell, let her lose to any of the cats. I don’t care. Just don’t let her lose to the terriers that look like Indy the Evil.

So, I’m begging you, click on the photo below, log into Facebook, and cast your vote by “Liking” Electra’s photo. And better yet, share it with all of your Facebook friends so they can vote too. Right now, Electra and the fuzzy terriers are tied, and you know they’re going to be pulling out all stops to win before the contest ends in a few hours. So, let’s go people. Show this sweet ol’ hound dog some love! Click the photo and vote Electra! 🙂
