HOP needs your votes in Rachel Ray’s Mutt Madness Contest!

Howllo Fellow Basset Hound, House of Puddles, and Mutt Madness Lovers!


As many of you may have heard, House of Puddles has made it into round two of Rachel Ray’s Mutt Madness Contest! I am not exactly sure when voting is over for this week, but please just vote today if you have not already voted. Also, can you tell your friends and co-workers to vote as well. Every time that HOP makes it into the next round they are awarded 1,000 dollars. I just cannot be more excited for them. Also, look how excited the old kids are! Keep in mind there are about 12 more in different rooms.


What a beautiful site to behold! Here is the link to the voting booth. You must be registered to vote. I had a bit of trouble because my browser was not updated.


If HOP wins, they will receive 50,000 dollars and most likely be on the Rachel Ray show, but I am not sure of that one. Can you imagine the exposure Marilyn could give to all basset hound rescues with an interview from Rachel? OMG I just got cold chills!

House of Puddles is the only basset hound rescue that was selected by Rachel’s rescue team to participate in Mutt Madness. (cold chills again)!

So, let’s all march to that voting booth together!

More pep talks later….Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Thanks so much, Cat. I don’t know about being on the RR show – did not see anything in the rules about that! LOL I wonder if they’d pay airfare for me and 20 dogs?

    Also, I believe voting runs Mondays through Sundays.

    You know what Marilyn, I bet she would Skype you in or have a camera crew come out. I bet she is going to make a big deal about the winner, as she should! It is such a huge, fantastic contest.

    The HopPers could all get their 15 minutes! hehehe
