In November Dogster member Lady let us know she had become one of the finalists in the Milk- Bone SpokesDog contest.

Some exciting news about our Lady. Lady, our 4 year old pup has been chosen as 1 of 100 finalists, out of tens of thousands of entries across the U.S.

I also just found out there was another Dogster who made it into the finals, Wyatt.

Although neither won, they deserve a big congrats for making it so far. After all, they were 2 out of 100 finalists from thousands of entries across the country.

A winner has been chosen and was announced yesterday on The Bonnie Hunt Talk Show.

SAN FRANCISCO - February 23, 2009 -
Del Monte Foods (NYSE:DLM), today announces that its Milk-Bone brand has named its first-ever SpokesDog.

It was a doggone great competition, but when America voted to pick just one dog to represent Milk-Bone, a Great Dane named Winston from Mosinee, Wisconsin stood, literally and figuratively, head and shoulders above the rest.

Winston and Melisa Ruppert, his proud pet parent, are taking home first prize in the Make a Milk-Bone MomentTM contest-a search for those genuine moments of joy that strengthen the bond between a pet and his or her pet parent.

The contest was in honor of Milk-Bone's 100 year anniversary.

A century ago, a New York City baker was barking up the right tree when he decided that his four-legged friends deserved a tasty treat too. Originally created in a small bakery on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the biscuits became known to millions as Milk-Bone dog biscuits, America's favorite dog snack.

A big congrats to Winston and Melisa Ruppert, we look forward to seeing their picture on a Milk- Bone box.
