    Default Yet another scam!

    While surfing the net I ran across an English Bulldog Picture contest, I thought why not, I entered a picture of Vegas (even though I KNOW he take the WORST pictures) That was two days ago.

    Today I got an email saying he was one of the Judges FAVORITES!! and for just 19.99 I could enter him in the 10,000 dollar winner catagory!!

    First like I said he does NOT take good pictures he is a PITA it takes 30 pictures to get one half decent one and secondly why would I have to pay if the Judges just looooved him??? What a scam! I have seen this ad several times so just beware. You know I think it was on FB now that I think about it.

    Look at his new avatar, his eyes are half closed! he usually has his eyes closed or turns his head, He HATES to have his picture taken, he runs when he see's the camera half the time. And the reason his chin is so red is because My son got him a skateboard for Christmas thinking Vegas would just majically get on it like we see others do......NO Vegas rubbed his chin RAW, because the top of the board is like sandpaper, until he had specks of blood trying to chew the skateboard, did not even put a foot on it!!! The skateboard is in the garage put up.

    I agree his mug is adorable!!!! Reminds me of the scam when I was young for poetry contests in the back of magazines. I entered and placed high in all of them (course you have to pay to get the book it is published in, lol) and my brother wrote some lame poem to prove it was fake and of course he also placed very high and was to be published. lmao. Jerk totally burst my bubble.

    No...@desertskybulldogs, some things we just need to accept about our children (literally).... and I KNOW Vegas is a PITA, and does not take good pics, so therefore it would be a rare thing that I could enter our contest, kind of like his mommy, all my pictures seems to be with my mouth wide open!!! Joe has told me more than once to be quiet and go to sleep!! I think it is my A.D.D. but I tend to talk a bit much!! And about off the wall things. LOL.

    @KMARINO ....... I think you are wrong about Vegas. He has taken some very good pix and that current avatar one is one of his best!... He looks REGAL, Masculine, tough in that pic! Looks like he is 'in command' and I bet he is

    I love his new avatar. That is certainly a scam, I can't imagine anyone would actually fall for it.

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    Thanks for the heads up! We have to be always on our guards.

    Also, I think he looks suave and debonair.... Like James Bond
