Jaxson was mentioned on the front page of the Livonia Observer Sunday August 16th!
I scanned the article, however the scan didn't come out great.
Jaxson, an 11 month-old German shepherd from Livonia, has won a six-month supply of dog food for coming in second place in a Cutest Dog contest sponsored by Bil-Jac.
The winners were chosen by Bil-Jac fans through the dog food manufacturer's Facebook Fan Page.
Jaxson, owned by Tara and Rick Galda, received more than 12,000 votes.
First place went to a brown and white terrier named Buddy, who received 16,000 votes. There were 12 finalists.
Tara Galda said she entered Jaxson in the contest after searching Bil-Jac's website to check out its products. She said Jaxson loves Bil-Jac treats and she wanted to know more about its food.
"He'll do anything for their treats," she said.
Galda said she has to prepare Jaxson's food so it has a mashed potatoes consistency because he has an enlarged esophagus that prevents him from being able to eat dry food. He also needs to eat in a vertical position so he has a special feeding stand.
Tara said she encouraged all her family members and friends to vote for Jaxson. Fans had the opportunity to vote for their favorite pooch as many times as they wished, with a limit of once per day. "He's the cutest puppy ever" she said.
It's been a busy summer here, I'm so sad to see it's over! We've enjoyed going to the dog park, lunch, ice cream, and walks with the dog. Now it's back to the grind with school and chilly days and I'm afraid we wont have as much time to do fun things with our puppy!
Here are some pictures from a while ago of my handsome man! I was trying to get good pictures of his fancy new collar (Again, from the nice people at Gozo Dog Collar) and in general think I got some nice looking pictures. Plus, I was very impressed with how well behaved he was to just sit or lay to take pictures, majority of the time I was not holding his leash, and he we would watch cars, kids on bikes, and the neighbor mow the lawn, never once trying to get up and run or leave.
