:shibe: Welcome to the Something Awful Top Dog Tournament! :cheerdoge:

The Something Awful Top Dog Tournament is a competition to determine the top dog across this whole forum. Think you know a pooch who's up for the task? Nominate a dog, win the subforum round, and take on the top dogs from subforums across SA!

How does it work? :eng101:

The three stages of the Top Dog Tournament are:
1) Subforum Nomination - Each participating subforum has a nomination thread for posters to nominate potential Top Dogs
2) Subforum Voting - Each subforum votes to determine the champion that will represent them in the forumwide vote
3) Forumwide Voting - The champions from every subforum go head to head to determine the Top Dog of the Tournament

This thread is Stage 1: Subforum Nomination

To nominate a dog for the tournament, please post ONCE AND ONLY ONCE in this thread in the following format:
  • Dog name
  • One sentence about why this dog is a good dog
  • Picture of dog

An example of a properly formatted nomination post is as follows:

quote:

Otis

Otis is a good dog because he once ate an entire loaf of pumpkin bread and pooped bright orange for two days


Nominations will be open until at least Wednesday, March 1. Polls for subforum voting will open shortly after.

Questions and Answers
  • Do I have to post my own dog?
    No! Post any dog you like.

  • Can I nominate more than one dog?
    No! Please nominate only one dog and choose one subforum to nominate in.

  • Does the dog I nominate have to be a real dog?
    Nope! Paintings, cartoons, doodles, ASCII art, it's all fine. The only condition is that the dog must be Good.

  • Can I vote in subforums I don't actively participate in?
    Definitely! Please visit all the participating subforums so you don't miss any dogs.

  • Where can I talk about the dogs that I like and dislike?
    The voting threads are a great place to talk about the dogs you like! Please only post nominations in the nomination thread.

    It is illegal to dislike any dogs


  • Won't the big subforums crowd out the little ones during the final vote?
    Who knows and who cares!

  • Who should I talk to if I have questions?
    The mod of each subforum is a good place to start. You can also ask tournament organizer pig slut lisa any questions or post in QCS.

  • Who's a good boy?
    All of them :3:

Let's get this party started!

Sam

Sam is a good boy because even though he suffered a gunshot wound as a stray in North Carolina and had to have his back left leg amputated, he is still the happiest, sweetest, cuddliest dog that we possibly could have rescued and spends most of his free time on his back, like below, chewing on a toy and getting foot rubs.

Bernie (in the back).

Bernie is a good dog because he only wants to chase the neighbors' cats, and not my own. Also Bernie is named after Bernie Parent.

This is Patches.

My parents rescued him a few years ago, and were told at the time that he was thought to be 8 years old. We think it's more likely that he's around 8 now. He was thought to be a terrier/shih-tzu mix but we're not even certain on that. He's a good boy because he's typically quiet, can walk on his hind legs to beg for food, and he's a lap dog which ladies dig (and they love his eyebrows).

EL CAPITANO

Cappi is a good dog because he was rescued from Puerto Rico. Despite being pulled away from a life of eating scraps, stealing drink, and banging bitches on the beach, he is very happy with his new home. He loves wearing sweaters (he has a "bone" sweater, a "cats suck" sweater, and "dapper dog" sweater). When he was rescued they said he was 2 years old but he acts like he's in his mid 40s. He has poor boner control, but we love him still.



Though a native Spanish speaker, he knows some commands in English and French as well! Is your doggo so good he speaks three languages?

Terra

Terra is a good dog because she's 14 years old but is definitely not a distinguished old lady. Like when she found 5 inches of mud and decided that lying down in it was definitely a pro move. Especially since we drove to the park and had no way to wash her off before she had to go back in the car.

Ivy

Ivy is a good dog because she was born without eyes due to some horrible irresponsible puppy mill operator but she still dogs as hard as any dog even though she often winds up running into things or stuck on top of things (as she is here).

No Decepticon in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.




This is Iggy aka IggNasty aka Iggy Monster aka The Notorious I.G.G.

He's pretty much the best dog I've ever known. He likes watching basketball (specifically the Butler Bulldogs) and animal shows. He loves to play with his cat brothers and take lots of naps.

When he goes to daycare, he constantly barks unless he gets put with the big dogs because he thinks he's a big dog.

All that running would knock her rear end out. Pics at like 2 months old.




Looking stylish in her barka. Now she's like 10 months. She's a good dog.

I appreciate all dogs that have a bunch of nicknames. Maggie responds to all kinds of dumb things we call her instead of her actual name. Wiggly, Miss Magoo, Miss Currfluffles, etc.
