And Basking Ridge's Top Dog Winner is...

Seventeen submissions of cute, personable and even admirable pooches from Basking Ridge.

Basking Ridge readers submitted photos of 17 personable-looking canines to our Top Dog contest.

All of the dogs submitted were cute, we admit, and some were well-dressed — such as Quinton, number 9, in his sweater, who collected 24 votes.

No. 18, Bella, was a rescue dog who grew to thrive in her new home, and captured the hearts of nine voters. So did the adorable Brady Bichon, no. 14.

But the winner was no. 15, Tina, dressed in her Halloween costume as a pirate. After she lost an eye, the Pine family became Tina's "seeing eye family."

Congratulatons to the photogenic Tina and our thanks to all the contestants and their humans who submitted their photos

Next, the Basking Ridge victor will vie with nine other local winners for the grand prize, a $250 gift card for the winning dog's weekend stay at the Morris Animal Inn. The grand prize winner will be announced Friday, Dec. 21 at noon.

We thank Morris Animal Inn for its partnership in facilitating the contest.

Tina has asked that we speak on her behalf and express congratulations to all top dogs in town! Each one stole our hearts, and she was in the best company among all the winners out there. Thank you so much!

Colleen, congrats on Tina's win! What a good looking Golden Retriever. Our two golden retrievers were upset they did not enter the contest but happy for Tina. I hope Tina can meet Cody and Abby so they can congratulate her in person. Barb Biglow Jacobus
