BOSTON BUDDIES 2008 CALENDAR CONTEST VOTING

OK - IT IS TIME!
Boston Buddies 2008 Calendar Contest

VOTING HAS BEGUN!!!

JANUARY  *  FEBRUARY  *  MARCH  *  APRIL  *  MAY  *  JUNE
JULY  *  AUGUST  *  SEPTEMBER  *  OCTOBER  *  NOVEMBER  *  DECEMBER

Click on each month to view the entries.
Each entry is labeled.

VOTING WILL END on Sunday October 28th at 11:59pm CST.

IF we have a tie we will hold a tie breaker beginning on Monday, October 29th at 11:59pm CST and ending on Wednesday, October 30th at 11:59pm CST.  A tie means either two entries have the same number of votes for one month OR one or more doggies have been selected for more than one month.  If we have any months with a tie in the number of votes AND any of those doggers also have the most votes (or ties) in more than one month, the tie breakers will be held separate, with the voting for the number of votes being first.  All voting for these stages will last only 24 hours.

RULES: 
1) You are only allowed to vote once for each month.  (The poll will only allow you to vote once). 
2) Only Boston Buddies members are allowed to vote.  Please do not create additional LJ accounts just to vote.  Of course we love our BIG happy family and would love for more Boston lovers to join, so if you have friends and/or family that would like to become a part of our wonderful community, please do tell them to join and vote too if they would like!
3) If at the end of the voting we have a tie, we will have a tie-breaker poll from
Monday, October 29th at 11:59pm CST and ending on Wednesday, October 30th at 11:59pm CST.
4) Each doggie can appear as the "featured" baby in only ONE MONTH.  If at the end of the voting we have a doggie that had the most votes in more than one month, we will have a tie-breaker to vote for which month that doggie will appear, and the "runner up" for the other month will become the featured baby in that other month.  If we do not have a tie in one or more months this tie-breaker will be held
from Monday, October 29th at 11:59pm CST and ending on Wednesday, October 30th at 11:59pm CST.  If we do have a tie in one or more months, this tie-breaker will be held from from Wednesday, October 30th at 11:59pm CST and ending on Friday, November 1st at 11:59pm CST.  IN OTHER WORDS, check back daily so you don't miss any extra voting that we may have!!!

    For those of you who notice that I started the voting early, it is because I am ready to go to bed!  I have two doggers who are pooped and not doing anything to help me stay awake.  So happy voting and goodnight!

Eeek.

Hi guys I posted here earlier asking about red bostons.
I still really want a red boston terrier, & i'm still having trouble finding one in my area, but i'll cross that bridge when i come to it. [ basically when i get the OK from my mom and the $$]
Anyhow, I've been trying to do as much research as I can,
and I know I asked about this earlier, but it's really scary.
I found this:

Q. Are white Boston Terriers rare? What about the new "Red" colors as well? I found one on the internet and they say it is a rare Boston and want a lot of money for it. Is it worth that much more?

A. PLEASE ! PLEASE ! First read the Official Standard for the Boston Terrier. There is no mention of a white Boston Terrier anywhere (nor Red's, Fawns or Blue). A white Boston Terrier is not a legitimate color for the breed (neither is red or blue as some puppy mills and back yard breeders are advertising). A white Boston Terrier (or the other "non-standard" colors mentioned) should NEVER be sold as rare...much less ask more money for the poor Boston. These colord dogs (or lack of color) are generally a geneticly weaker dog that is more susceptible to all kinds of health problems. If a breeder should ever offer you a white, red or blue Boston Terrier as rare, don't just walk away. RUN away as fast as you can. Let me say it again...WHITE BOSTON TERRIERS ARE NOT RARE ! They are unfortunate mistakes of nature.

There is another type of Boston that you will come across as a pet. These are often referred to as mis-marked Bostons. This is usually just a simple misalignment of the dark hair with the white hair on the Boston. But since the Official Standard is very specific about some markings, a mis-marked Boston can not be shown and should not be used as a stud dog. These mis-marked Bostons are usually placed in loving homes by the breeder since they still have all of the other wonderful attributes of a Boston Terrier. But be aware that these mis-marked Bostons are pet quality only and you should pay only pet price. These Bostons should also be neutered as soon as possible. These mis-marked Bostons are different from the "white" Bostons that we are seeing being advertised on the internet as rare.

My question is now,
how old are your red bostson if you don't mind me asking....
Thanks :)
