YapStar Pet Contest
Win a Pet Portrait and a Pet Friendly Holiday
YapStar Pet Contest Winners [May 1, 2009 - August 31, 2009]
It was a great contest and kudos to our winners who worked hard spreading the word and winning the coveted YapStar Contest.
1st Place — Ruby Blue Eyes — 11,225 Votes
Ruby Blue Eyes, a Royal Oak, MI local hero wins the YapStar Contest with 11225 Votes received from pet lovers across the United States and beyond. With Ruby's striking features - her gorgeous blue eyes and sweet face - it's no wonder why she had fans across the country cheering her on to be crowned "The YapStar". Ruby's owner gave us a lesson in the power of social networks and how her love for Ruby spurred her on to reach marketing heights corporate execs would envy. This incredible marketing effort across numerous social networking sites [such as Twitter, Facebook, Craig's List and others] and her daily emails to all her loyal fans paid off.
Congratulations Ruby and we can't wait to see the pet portrait of Ruby by Justine Osborne. Have fun in San Francisco! Click to see what Ruby won.
