Sofie is Top Dog #1

The ballots were cast and the votes counted.  After reviewing nearly 100 essays, a decision was made on Lucas County’s No. 1 dog for 2008. 

Lucas County Auditor, Anita López, awarded Sofie, a 2˝-year old Pomeranian-Poodle-Terrier mix from Holland, Ohio, the No. 1 dog tag and complimentary 2008 dog license. 

Sofie will also have her picture on the 2009 renewal forms.  The essays were narrowed down to the Top 5 candidates—all received a complimentary dog tag.  The runners up included: Boulie, a 6-month Australian Shepherd; Bentley, a 4-year old Yellow Lab; Molly, a 4-year old Lab/Shepherd mix; and Napoleon (“Poley”), a 9-month old Pekinese. 

Lucas County, Ohio residents were asked to submit an essay on why their dog is worthy of wearing the No. 1 dog tag.  Essays were submitted through December 2007 and were judged on creativity and overall content. 

According to Sofie, “I am friendly and sociable. It is not unlike me to go up to a stranger and say hello. It is just my way of meeting others. I like to see the positive side of things, looking at the good in others as well as the world around me. Due to my positive attitude and outlook, as well as my pleasant disposition, I believe that I would make a good ambassador for Lucas County.

“The contest was designed to promote the importance of licensing your pet”, said López.  “Licensing serves to protect your dog and will identify the owner so that the dog can be returned home if lost.” 

Dog tags are required by law for all dogs over 3 months of age.  Dog tags for 2008 can be purchased through January 31, 2008 at the Auditor’s Office, Lucas County Dog Warden, or area agents.  You can read the entire winning essays on the Lucas County Auditor’s website at www.co.lucas.oh.us/auditor
