It comes down to man vs. dog.
Just as nature intended it.
In one corner we have Ben, who, with a whopping 152 votes, eclipsed the juggernaut that was Tessi. Ben is adorable, overworked, and delightfully frumpy.
In the other corner we have Llewelyn, whose name I can’t seem to ever get right, and it might not be right here. In the tournament’s closest finish, Llewelyn nudged his Corgi nose just past Mario. I’ve actually had the pleasure of meeting Llewelyn, and I can confirm that he’s cuddly and playful and very cute.
Given Ben’s overwhelming victory in the last contest, he is the clear favorite. But can the masses resist those huge puppy eyes? We’ll see.
Cast your votes (one per person) by Wednesday, March 30 at 10:00 pm. I will announce the winner with much pomp and circumstance on March 31st. As noted in the original blog entry, the winner will receive Angel Baked Cookies, a limited-edition ARC of Blank Slate Press’s The Samaritan ($4.99 Kindle edition here), and I’ll throw in some treats for the baby/dog. After all, they’re the ones carrying the weight around here.
