Hey pet nerds!

Our great friends at Pawesome, one of our fave new sites from the brains of my good pal and former Chron 96 Hours editor Sarah Han and I Heart Tripods’ Sonia Zjawinski, is giving you one whole week to register to win a portrait of your pet from artist Lili Chin of Doggie Drawings.

Cat, rat, guppy guardians, do not be distracted by the “Doggie” in her business’ name! She’ll do any pet, regardless of species.

I seriously considered not telling y’all about this because I totally want to win this contest for one of my many animals. But I cannot allow my personal interests to stand in the way of my service to y’all readers! So go sign up, now, and return regularly for their bad ass pet blogging. Go!
