Best Reader Caption for Joe Arpaio and a Guy in a Dog Suit: ecardferret

Congratulations to the New Times reader known as ecardferret, you've won this week's New Times You Write the Caption contest.

On Friday, we asked readers to write the caption for the above photo of of Sheriff Joe Arpaio wearing some sort of floral-print shirt, and standing next to a guy in a dog suit.

We picked the five best captions, and put those up for a popular vote.

ecardferret beat out the rest of the field with the following:

Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

I'd like to introduce you to our newest drug sniffing dog. Now, we know that dogs are color blind, so we've also taught this one to bark at anything that smells like taco seasoning or homemade tortillas.

To retrieve your prize of a firm handshake and/or high-five, please mail your hand to (or come by and ask for) Matthew Hendley at 1201 East Jefferson Street in Phoenix.
