The Biggest, Baddest Contest... SNPM!

Okee, so last night my Mommy watched the finale of America's Next Top Model, which she calls ANTM. I like this Tyra Banks woman, she is the host and she is totally like me! We are both beautiful and fierce and everyone knows it. And, I likes this show, so I thinks... I will start my own!

Instead of America's Next Top Model, it will be Sophie's Next Pug Model. I know it says Pug Model, but of course all the Terrierists (oops, I mean Terriers) we know will be invited to partake, since ANTM features some humans that are not from America... DUH!

It will be a few weeks long, depending how many people want to play. Tyra votes one person out per week, but I think for once I will be nicer than Tyra, and everyone will play until the end. And then just like Tyra, we will pick a winner every week, and then two finalists will be chosen to compete for the prize at the very end.

Every Thursday, I will announce what the picture is that week. They will be different types of challenges (ex: pictures of you and your stuffies) and you have to get your human to take the picture and email it to me at, by the next Tuesday night. Then, I will post them all on Wednesday, and announce that week's winner. The next day (Thursday), the next challenge will be announced, and you will again have a week to submit the photo.

If you are busy or going on vacation I can give you the challenges in advance. All you need to participate is a human who has a camera, and who can email to me! As of now, the two finalists will need to make a video using their cameras, but we can worry about that when we get to it. Multiple-dog households can enter one picture per dog. (This is an individual competition... like I would ever let Dixie pose with me on the job! LOL!) Oh, and you can be a boy OR a girl, Tyra only lets girls join but I think boy dogs can be models too.

I will make comments about how fierce the pictures are when I post them. Dixie Bugg will also be on the panel, since she's is the America's Dumbest Bugg Model winner. She will give her comments too.

WEEK ONE CHALLENGE: To enter, send me the best picture of you and a stuffy. It can be any kind of stuffy, any amount of stuffies, and other dog models can be in the shot. The challenge is to find a photo where you can outshine the distracting stuffies, and truly look like the Next Pug Model. See above for an example of my fabulous work in this area. Let it... inspire you.

Email your submission or questions to Also, leave a commentt o let the other bloggers know who they're up against! THANKS!
