The Golden Acorn Contest

I, Sweet William The Scot, have a little contest for you!  Yep I have a tree rat and his golden acorn to give to the winner of our contest.  Well it is a faux golden acorn, oh fiddle faddle it is plastic! You didn't think it was real gold did you?  It is an air freshner holder for your car or wherever we dogs make a smell.  You can choose two pods scents to go into the tree rat.  Fresh Balsam, Mahogany Leather or Spring Scentportable are the winners choices.
 Not a Name That Song Contest this time!!!
It's a Name That Face Contest.
All over our town are painted murals. Painted in this mural are eighteen characters.  The dog, cat, crab, guinea pig, horse, oh shucky darn whoever can name the most characters wins The Golden Acorn! 
In case of a tie, there will be a tie breaker question.  What number am I thinking? 
Now for a hint, some of them are generic characters, some are real living people, some are not, and some are just real characters.
Comment moderation is on.  So please leave me a comment, I loves comments, then look over the picture really good and give me the answer, two comments.  Comments will be published.  Your answers comment will not appear till next Monday, when the contest ends. 
Have Fun. 
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine

Sweet William The Scot
 Lee and I invited some friends for a grill out picnic yesterday for the Memorial Holiday Weekend.  We had this bouquet of lovely peonies for our center piece on our picnic table. 
Bless all the K-9 who serve in protecting our country.


  1. OMD...I sure see a lot of BIG mouths there! :) Have to think about this because right now all I can think about is your grill-out picnic! Wish we were there! Did you have any HOT DOGS? I prefer calling them TUBE STEAKS! BOL

  26. Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

    My blog ... Solde Air Max

  27. oooooh, gonna have a go at this ........ it'll have to a family affair 'cos I'm not too hot with everything and I'll have to get Them to help, so we'll be back!
