CAPTION BANK: The Money Hound E-mail


Bankers went to the dogs on this one


Readers of ABA Banking Journal Editors Report last week had the opportunity to provide a caption for this dog with $200 to spend. Who can resist a plaintive pooch? 20 bankers submitted entries. Entrants below participated in a random drawing for a $50 Amazon card, which will be awarded to Rhonda Register of Capital City Bank.


Your reward is some very funny captions, and few groaners.  Sorry, no biscuits.

--Steve Cocheo, executive editor and digital content manager
