June 24’s winner for the photo featuring two superhero dogs:

They say we are a pug-nosed, pugnacious and pugilistic breed. But we’re just Superpugs to those who love us. — Nancy C. Smith-Slee, Palos Heights

Runners-up:

We may be small but we superheroes can lick anybody. — Terry Bracken, Chicago

You’re right, Batman. The Flash always beats us to that fire hydrant. — Kevin Truell, Alsip

These pugnacious crime fighters are always willing to lend a yelping hand. — Pat Foley, Homer Glen

Best of the Rest:

Play it cool, Superman. No one will recognize us in our new masks. — EJ Oahueke, Worth

This isn’t worth the candy we get. — Richard Jarema, Chicago’s Mount Greenwood community

I knew we shouldn’t have gotten involved with those “Men in Black” guys. — Mike Sutko, Oak Lawn

We aren’t blending in. I told you this isn’t what they’re wearing on Earth this year. — Alice Latham, Willow Springs

I can’t assume my alter ego as Bark Kent because I’ve lost my horn-rimmed glasses. Let’s go back to the bat cave. My butler Alfido is serving Gravy Train for dinner. — Joseph A. Vaccaro, Tinley Park

Let’s go rescue some puppy mill survivors. — Katherine Webster, Orland Park

That’s right, Superdog. Hold your head up and your tongue out and your hiccups will go away. — Michael Schmidt, Hammond, Ind.

Stop pushing already! I am only Batpug. He is the Superpug. Let him locate the fire hydrant. — Evert E. Kooyman, Oak Lawn

Are we there yet? — Phyllis Knize, Crestwood

Southland super dogs. — Gene Sabaj, Oak Lawn

Who is prettier? Come on. You can answer. Her feelings will not be hurt. — Jerry Centner, Oak Forest

These people wouldn’t know a superhero if they saw one. Do you remember Underdog? — Wayne R. Anderson Sr., Homewood
