Simba the pomapoo wins the Wayward Dogs Magnet Contest!

Well, as I predicted, our first-ever Wayward Dogs photo contest was a fierce competition of cuteness! Here’s a review of the pups who received the most votes. In the coming days, I plan to share a little more information about some of the other contestants. So, I hope you’re not tired of these cute pictures yet. (As if.)

Our grand champion, whose adorable face will be incorporated into a custom magnet by Kathleen Henn, is Simba the pomapoo. He racked up some 58 Facebook likes! Part of his popularity no doubt owes to his formal attire. Apparently, his mom and dad are opera singers, so the little guy needs that tux.

Simba loves cuddling, kissing, learning new tricks, chasing leaves, and wearing his pajamas to bed.

The next-highest vote-getter was Charlie (not to be confused with Charlie Machete). More gorgeous photos of this rescue dog can be found at The photographer had this to say about his subject:

“In September my girlfriend rescued Charlie from an abusive home. He was extremely malnourished and in poor health. He was initially diagnosed with ear infections in both ears and hookworms in his stomach. After several months and many trips to the vet, she has brought back him to great health.”

Charlie is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

The third-highest vote-getter was a pretty girl named Boo, another rescue pup.

Boo has grown into the name she got on Halloween.

I can’t wait to see what Simba looks like on his special magnet. When Kathleen sends me a picture of the finished product, I will be sure to share it on the blog. Don’t forget that you can order magnets from Kathleen at anytime just by e-mailing her at Put Wayward Dogs in the subject line so that a portion of the price gets donated to Friends of KC Animals.
