Below the "VOTE" Key, there is a button that lets you view other contestants. (warning! there are a whole bunch to choose from) This whole contest is rigged. There are some butt-ugly pets who are getting more votes because of their cheating owners.

What better way to even the score with the power of anandtech members?

I thank everyone who votes for my dog. :)

There are over 12,000 pets in that contest, I think "cheating" (aka requesting votes) is the only way to go. Who's going to browse 12K of pics?

Thanks for voting. You guys/gals are the greatest! I tip my hat to all of you who are voting for Gophee or even checking him out. I say he is cute. Dirty & needs a bath all the time, but cute.

Are you just tipping your hat to Yo_Ma-Ma? That is, if Yo_Ma-Ma has even voted yet ... It's gonna take me at least a couple of days to go through all these choices and cast my vote.

I did vote for his doggie! It was cute, and I don't want to look at all those others.

After you vote, you'll get a $5.00 coupon, too. This might qualify as a HOT DEAL even :)

Gophee is up to 3rd place now (with 15 votes):) But there's a large spread, 1st place has 96 and 2nd has 52.

Mday, I don't think that's an error, that's the regular text for the browse contestant page.

Thanks to all who voted. We have 26 votes but some cheater entered his dog today &amp; already got 106 votes. The bad part is that the dog isn't even cute.

I am not planning to win anything in this contest. It is just that my friend &amp; I are having a bet on whose dog gets the most votes. He thinks any form of poodles are demon dogs. (I guess it's because their eyes are a different color when you use a flash)

So far Gophee is kicking butt! He is leading by 25 votes. I think my friend will cheat &amp; just delete the cookies in IE to vote again.

Mday, the message you are getting is ok. Petsmart had some problems with &quot;other&quot; pages that couldn't be displayed so these whiners complained and they were discounting votes until the problem is fixed.

I guess they are disclosing the fact so they can't be sued.

Just an update for you Day Trader, I've looked through about 1/3 of the other contestants so far, but haven't made a decision yet. I'll keep you posted with updates, though.

I just checked the pages and some dog had 16K votes! Gophee doesn't stand a chance. Thanks for your time.
