America's Next Top Mongrel Nominees

GBS: Krustee (nominated by Dinosaurmageddon)
Charity: New Harvest
Bio: Krustee - the rad as heck burgerpug - is from the alpha timeline.



PYF: Dog with mailman shoes (nominated by Mameluke)
Charity: Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada
Bio: This is my favourite dog.



BYOB: Weedwolf (nominated by Uxzuigal)
Charity: Camano Animal Shelter
Bio: Weedwolf is the chillest of all dogs, adopted by BYOB at Christmas 2016 he is the pinnacle of selective breeding, his favorite food is brownies!

Bio: He is a good dog.



Let's Play: Missile (nominated by EponymousMrYar)
Charity: The Humane Society of the United States
Bio: Is good at barking, swapping positions of two similar-shaped objects and traversing through stable time loops (the slow way) to save his master because that's apparently what Good Doggies do.



Star Citizen: Kayak (nominated by Beet Wagon)
Charity: Bimini Biological Field Station
Bio: Kayak is a good dog because even though he got scared by a chicken thigh once he still goes on adventures and also if you take his sunglasses off he shoots red lasers out of his eyes like Cyclops (I made that part up).



C-SPAM: Loukanikos (nominated by wizard on a water slide)
Charity: Prison Pet Partnership
Bio: This is Loukanikos, the Greek "riot dog", who showed up to multiple protests over the course of several years in Athens. He died at home in 2014 at the age of ten, his health having been compromised by the various gasses and other nonlethal weapons used against protesters. There's a photo online of a pig kicking him. Loukanikos is the most C-SPAM dog, and my friend.



BFC: Rufus Wolf St. (nominated by Thoguh)

Charity: Lincoln County Humane Society
Bio: Bella's big, and wants to be your friend.



AI: Rascal (nominated by funny star wars parody)

PI: Gaston (nominated by where the red fern gropes)
Charity: Kaarakin
Bio: he owns my yard and won't leave



TFR: Boo (nominated by Sixgun Strumpet)
Charity: Quail Forever
Bio: Like Paxton and Rickman, too good for this world, you were a bit of an awkward teenager, and fascinated by gun related stuff, you loved shoes but you were a biter, you were a good little bird.



GIP: Monty (nominated by Zeris)
Charity: Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary
Bio: A work of posting art



CineD: Andy (nominated by X-Ray Pecs)
Charity: \_(ツ)_/
Bio: Andy's a good boy who stole the hearts of action fans worldwide as Daisy, the dog John Wick (Keanu Reeves) received as a gift from his late wife



BBV: Bear (nominated by Black Baby Goku)
Charity: Snow Leopard Trust
Bio: He watches Coen brother films with me and laughs at the "cut off your Johnson" scene in lebowski as do I.



CC: Maddie (nominated by neongrey)
Charity: D'Arcy's Animal Rescue Center
Bio: She loves belly rubs and licking your hand and chasing things you throw for her and being terribly excited to see you when you get home and I believe these things qualify her not only as a dog, but as best dog.








Finally, please spare a thought for Icarus, the very good dog of forums poster Nostalgia4Dogges, who was recently struck by a car and killed. RIP to this good dog, and all the good dogs from everywhere who are now wagging in heaven.

:toxx: for $25 if Monty loses.

:toxx: for Monty's percent of the vote times five rounded up to the nearest $10 if he wins.

So if he gets 10% of the total vote and wins I will donate $50. If he gets 9% of the total vote and wins I will donate $50 (9*5=45, rounded up to the nearest $10). If he gets 11.5% of the total vote and wins I will donate $60 (11.5*5 = $57.5, rounded up to the nearest $10). And so on and so forth. If the Russians do what they are supposed to do and he gets 100% of the vote, that means I donate $500.

All dogs are good dogs, but some dogs are exceptional, and while kayak the video game dog has to wear goggles every time he goes outside to shield his eyes from Earth's harsh sun, Loukanikos once charged a live tear gas grenade and bit the bejezus out of it!

To honor Loukanikos, my :toxx: shall be two dollars for every percentage point of voters that check Louk in their vote, which I think is currently a bit over $50. If you haven't voted yet, be sure to check Louk so it will go up!

Ride now for Loukanikos! Ride to ruin and the world's end!


e: Looks like we had 1969 voters (nice!), of whom 557 or 28.29% checked Loukanikos. I have to assume that the other 71.71% of ballots were misread due to hanging chads or Russian hacking, because how could anyone not vote for Louk? In any case, $2 per point brings us to $56.58, which I have rounded up to $60.

If either Rusty or Loukanikos win I'll donate $25 to their respective charities (i.e. both get paid if either of them win).

I voted for Louk. I also voted for all of the good dogs. Even the retractable claws or feathered dogs.

Let's see if this attachment works...
