Miss Edie the Pug
It’s not about the votes,
it’s about the love and pride I have for my great
City of Toronto
I’ve always considered myself a proud Toronto Pug.
I love taking in the sites, exploring the many events and parklands this great city of mine has to offer.
Of course part of being a proud Toronto Pug is supporting my local sports teams!
It’s not unusual for me to be seen pugging around in my Toronto Maple Leafs hockey jersey, my Toronto Blue Jays Tee, or bundled up in my Toronto Argo’s hoodie.
It’s always an exciting time when TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) is in town! I make a plan each year to check out who’s on the Red Carpet, hoping to catch a glimpse of the stars that have come to visit Toronto.
Of course being the pug that I am, I couldn’t miss the opportunity of having my own photo taken on the Red Carpet, and what a surprise it was to be named by Toronto Life Magazine as one of the “Top Dogs to be seen on the Red Carpet!”
So this past August, when I heard about a competition called “Toronto’s Top Dog” I knew this was for me!
I was asked to post a photo and tell them what makes me special; I was asked if I had any talents, and why I feel I am unique?
Here is my response to these questions:
What makes me special? I mean other than my humans telling me that I’m special?
Do I have any special talents other than looking cute when I want a treat?
Am I unique? Well, I have been told I’m one of a kind!
But what I am most proud of is using my social media outlets and my blog for good!
I believe in the impawtance of helping other pets, pets that are not as fortunate as I am. I believe all furfriends deserve a safe and loving home, they deserve to be spoiled and cared for, they deserve a chance to run around the wonderful parks and go to pet events in our great city of Toronto!
So when I hear of a pet that has been waiting far to long for a loving family, I share their story and their pictures on my blog and on my social media outlets, hoping to connect them with a loving person or family that they can call their own. Nothing makes me happier when I hear these pets have found a home!
I am proud to say after a tough competition that involve many deserving dogs, I made it to the finals!
I, along with 27 other dogs was presented with a Finalist bandana.
I can’t thank all those who supported me, shared for me and voted, I couldn’t have done it without your help!
What happens now? What does it take to be named “Toronto’s Top Dog“?
The second and final round of the competition goes from September 30th and the last day to vote is October 18th, 2016. Voting can be done once every 24 hours, each and every day. The dog with the most votes wins the title “Toronto’s Top Dog”.
As proud as I would be to be named “Toronto’s Top Dog” I believe it is not, and should not, be all about me. It’s about what I can do to help others by giving back; this title would give me the opportunity to highlight my great city of Toronto and bring awareness to pets in need.
I’m asking for your continued daily support during this final round of the competition and would be honoured if you would vote for me and help spread the word.
If I have the honour of winning, I will be donating any and all food products to a pet shelter.
