Retrodog's First Annual Foodsaver Contest (Dog & Cat Pictures)

So first of all, what's the prize?

Well as the title describes, it's a Foodsaver (since I'm the self-proclaimed Foodsaver shill for the forum). But it's not a fancy one. It's a Model 300. It will do the bags, but not the jars. Yeah ok, maybe I'll do the fancier one for the second annual contest.




So how do we compete?

Ok, to be eligible you must have a dog or cat. You must have a cute picture of your dog or cat. You must post two pictures of said dog or cat. One picture will be the cute one and the second will show you with the dog or cat, for proof of relationship. And if you're someone who hasn't met many of us, you must be holding up a sign in the joint picture that reads "Retrodog Foodsaver Contest" so I'll know it's you. It might be possible to e-mail the joint picture directly to me if you are uncomfortable posting it on here.

The contest will run for one week. Pictures must be posted by 11/15/05, 22:00 CT.


"So retrodog is a well known dog lover (especially if it's cold enough) and not too fond of cats. How will we know that the cat pictures will get a fair shake?"

Well the judges will be made up of myself and two of my female friends. And they are cat lovers, the owners of Tigger (Tig-Tig) and Nosey. Tigger being shown below, with me. Anyway, it will be getting judged essentially by two cat lovers and one retrodog... so there is a pretty good chance of not only feline fairness but maybe also some preference.

Who is eligible?

Any standing member of this forum who joined before now, and capable of proving to some reasonable point their identity. This is to keep out computer simulated members like Steavis and his virtual GF/wife.

What other rules are there?

Well, whatever I think up or remember between now and next Tuesday night.





Me and tig-tig



Edit (11/10/05, 12:10 CT): Ok, so I got a couple of concerned PMs from people about the background/use of the prize, due to my diet. So I just wanted to add that this Foodsaver is new and still sealed in the original box. That's right, never opened. It has absolutely never been used to vacuum package kitty parts in any way, shape, or form.

I have a dog and 2 cats. May I enter more than once? (I probably wouldn't, but this will certainly come up sooner or later.)

Sure. This is for the cutest picture. Try and be selective but enter as many as you like.

That's strange. I thought there'd be more interest in a FS than this.

Here's one of my dog Coral:



I'll add the corroborating pic of the two of us later, although about 25 board members could attest to her being my dog.

EDIT: Now it's later!

We got rid of our cat about 3 weeks ago. I do have cute pictures of said animal, though.

Not cute enough to stop you "getting rid" of it, apparently?!

There will be!

First, I have to choose between the four furballs, then choose their best pic, then take a pic of me with said animal (will I need a sign? ). This might take a while! Oh, and I'll have to go home first.

This is blatant discrimination against those that don't have a cat or dog.

Just for that, you're not gonna UMF me into getting a Foodsaver.

There are so many possible captions I could have used for this one, but I'll let you guys have your fun. Plus, I'm still kind of new around here, and most of my ideas fell under the "might be very offensive" category.



Unfortunately, I may be disqualified. These are my cats (I swear), but I don't have a photo with me in the picture. And it's going to be hard to get one, as I am 2500 miles away from my buddies right now.

Here's some cute pics just for the hell of it.









I just realized I need more cat pics on my website. All of them are OLD and I have so many better ones. This is my new favorite--caught in a yawn:



And here's ME with one:



Do I need a sign? If I win, I will forfeit the foodsaver to the second runner up.

I don't really have a need for a Foodsaver. You want to drop by and have some pictures taken with my cat?

Max (2 black spots on forehead) and Molly (black spot on back of head):











I have a 3MB video of them as well, but it'll take me a while to share it.

Here's the problem:
1.) these pics were taken a year ago. They're much bigger now.
2.) due to my ex-girlfriend's pet allergies, Molly is currently living with a coworker, and Max is currently living with a friend out of state. I could possibly visit my coworker and get a pic taken with Molly (from her markings, it'll be obvious that it's her), but I'd be imposing on them if I do that. It would be easier for me to get a pic of myself in the same room, and with the same furniture, as the last pic. Or, the same couch as the first pic. Is that acceptable? If not, I'll gladly bow out of the contest.

I'm not sure I have pictures of the cats with me. I have pictures of cats with the kids, and pictures of me with the kids.

Ooops, here's one with Jamie, me and my son when he was about five weeks old.
