free dog picture ruff wear hover craft flying dog disc dog photo contest is happy to announce the winner of our best holiday dog picture photo contest. Bella, a mixed breed from Ventura County, California, took the top spot out of a cute but modest field of eight competitors.

The winning contest photo was entitled “Bella the red nosed?” and featured her adorned with antlers in front of an illuminated Christmas tree. The picture was taken by one of her people, Jody, who also kindly enough took the pictures of her accepting our congratulations and her prize. As with all dog photo contests, the winner was selected by votes entered by registered users of the dog picture gallery. It is free to register, free to enter and free to vote.

Said Bella on learning that she was the top dog, “I’m honored to have won among such a talented and competitive group on entrants.” She added, “I’d like to thank my people, Jody, Engie and Andy, and my two cats, Turtle and Leihua, without whom this great day would not be possible.”

Bella explained she keeps her svelte figure by obsessing over anything outside the window, running on the beach and karaoke.

More about Bella

Bella is a six-year-old “Tijuana Special” rescue who enjoys long walks on the beach, plush dog beds and hours of Frisbee play. A Virgo born on September 1, she finds satisfaction being an alpha female around smaller breeds, but respects those who can show leadership in gentle ways. Single, never married and without pups, this neutered female is looking for a pack mate who can share her appreciation for good music, long naps and barking at seagulls.

(Editor’s note: In case that reads like she needs a home, don’t worry, she does not. It’s meant to sound like a “Singles” ad.)
