Margaret Blankeship’s dog Daisy, a 9 month old Yorkie with a penchant for dress-up and UT football, has rooted out the competition and stands at the head of the pack. She is Macon County’s 2012 Cutest Pet.
Daisy recently underwent surgery, and had a little shaven patch of fur on her right haunch when she showed up to claim her prize and proclaim victory over her adversaries. She was still 100% camera ready in her Halloween getup, though, and began posing immediately when the flashes began.
Daisy’s 1st place title has won her $100 from Dr. Emily Lough, Optometrist, and bragging rights for a year. She received 3,397 online votes, beating out the next runner-up, Donna Meador’s Little Bit, by 1,842 votes.
