This pug doesn't seem to appreciate this sweater. Oh wait...Pugs always look this way.

Update (5:30 pm Dec 28): The contest is now closed. We got fantastic photos from nearly 80 Dogsters! That’s a tremendous, warm, and fuzzy turnout! We will make our announcements on Wednesday. It won’t be an easy decision…

Humans love ’em. Some dogs do, too. Others dogs are so embarrassed or frightened by them that they can’t move.

Welcome to the canine Christmas sweater. They come in all shapes and sizes, and run in three styles: The good, the bad, and the ugly (the latter two are pretty much synonymous in the land of Christmas sweaters).

We’re looking for photos of any Dogster pooches in their Christmas sweater of any of the varieties mentioned above. The best one — good, bad, or ugly — will be featured on this blog, and will receive 50 Zealies.

Email your photo and send a little description (include your name, your dog’s name, how he/she got the sweater, what your do thinks of it, and if you consider the sweater wonderful, tolerable, or terrible) to arfarfarf@sbcglobal.net by 5 pm Pacific time Monday, Dec. 28. The winner will be announced Wednesday, Dec. 30.

Good luck. And if your dog doesn’t have a sweater, don’t get too unraveled. We’ll be running another photo contest of a different variety next month!
