Caption This! A Dog Mechanic?

In our new Caption This contest, we ask you to come up with your funniest caption to this great photo.

We had more than two dozen captions submitted for the photo of a cat peaking out of a Starbucks bag in last week's Caption This contest.

The Patch judges awarded title of best caption to ReTTo for the caption: "She said that Starbucks is like catnip for humans but I've been sitting in here for an hour and feel nothing!"

Both ReTTO and Carolyn Alder, who submitted the excellent photo, will get a digital copy of the photo with the caption affixed. You can click on the thumbnail above to see what it looks like.

For next week, we’ve got a photo of a dog waiting patiently for some mechanic clients, sent in by reader D S. You can start submitting your funniest caption ideas now.

Here’s how it works:

* In the comments section below, write in your best idea for a funny caption for this photo. Comments must be in by noon Friday.

* The esteemed Patch judges will pick our favorite and announce it Monday, along with a new photo to caption.

* Both the caption writer and the reader who submitted the photo will get an emailed copy of the captioned photo.

Want to upload your own funny pet photos for future caption consideration? Please do by clicking through to this article.
