He doesn’t normally use his middle name, “The.”
You are first place in our book Fred! Best in Show!
If you’re not first, you’re last! Better luck next time Basset!
Good attitude, Fred!
Congratulations Fred! You made the top three.
Now Fred the real fun should start . A stop at the local Pub on the way home for a Sausage ;-)
Where’s his medal? Even Olympic athletes get a bronze metal for 3rd place. Not even a ribbon?
3rd place can be good, depending on the number of competitors
You’re the second Loser.
Good boy, Fred.
Always #1 to me Fred!
In my book you are first Fred
No matter what color the ribbon, you’re always first-class for us Fred.
We can’t all always be first. They say it is better to come in 3rd than second. If you’re 3rd, the next spot down is off the podium, and the next spot up is just 2nd place. If you’re 2nd, you missed winning! So Fred should be well pleased!
Just to be noticed is good!
I hate to disappoint him but third is not runner-up.
We all know that you’re a class act, Fred!
