I couldn’t be more pleased to announce The Sweet Banana Split as the winner of our 11th annual costume contest for our dog, Sofia. Here’s the breakdown of votes:
Sweet Banana Split- 82 votes
Capricious Clown- 48 votes
Clever Pumpkin Disguise- 24 votes
Fragrant Skunk- 22
Sofia received lots of emails in support of the winning costume. She was more than pleased to pose in costume in front of the quick mural paying homage to Edvard Munch’s The Scream painted by her Dad, Shannon Shea. Many voters for Sweet Banana Split said they felt as if they had won as well. In fact, there were a few people that said they were going out for victory drinks to celebrate.
There were others who were not as pleased, but that is to be expected with any election. One voter was aghast that 48 people would actually vote for the clown. But judging by the history of elections in the U.S., it’s not so unusual.
Thanks to everyone who participated. Looking forward to next year.
