I guess I should have known better. Here I was, thinking that I had given you all a really tough image to decipher… and 30 minutes after posting it, in the very first comment, it was identified with ease. Jeez, I have no idea how to stump you for future contests! I guess this little event will need to go back to the drawing board… But for now at least, since it became immediately obvious so quickly, I treated this one more as a raffle and entered everyone who commented into a random drawing.
So without further ado, by using a random number generator and then selecting the corresponding comment, I’ve determined that the winner is… Kya! Congrats, your new puppy pal will be on his way soon!
Thanks to everyone else for your enthusiasm too. All I can say is… Next time I’ll have to do some different sort of contest!
