Last week, we asked readers to submit possible captions for this photo:

On Monday, you voted on the finalists, and now it’s time to announce the winner of our caption contest….

As is customary with our caption contests, we will now reveal the backstory behind the picture. This photo of Gunner the Wonder Dog was taken in the UVA Law library, and a law student experiencing “exam-induced delirium” has been leaving him in various study hot spots throughout the school in an attempt to bring smiles to her classmates’ faces. Gunner’s become so popular that he even has his own Facebook page.

If there were a UVA Law compliments page, we’re pretty sure Gunner’s owner would get more than a few just for bringing joy to her peers during a time of testing doom. Pop your collar with pride today, you’ve earned it!

And now, without further ado, here’s the winning caption:

Well, yes, I know I look like a golden retriever. But technically my breed is descended from African hunting dogs. So, no, I don’t think it was unethical to check that box on my application.

Thanks to everyone for suggesting comments and for voting. If you wrote the winning caption, feel free to email us, subject line “Caption Contest Winner,” to claim your prize (an ATL t-shirt).
