For those of you convinced that your pet is the best-looking/cutest/funniest animal ever, now is your chance to prove it.
The 2011 Congressional Pet Photo Contest is up and running, and judging by a few early entries, the competition is fierce.
Sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States, the contest is
open to members of Congress and congressional staff. Eligible pets
include dogs, cats and horses, and the submissions will be accepted
through May 20.
ITK’s early pick is Sebastian, Rep. Michael
Grimm’s (R-N.Y.) 2-month-old Yorkshire terrier (shown here with Grimm in April). Grimm rescued Sebastian
from a puppy mill in Missouri, and he’s quickly become the most popular
resident of the fifth floor of Cannon.
To enter the contest, visit www.humanesociety.org before May 20 to submit a photo.
