Just curious, why don't you wanting the dog sleeping in your bedroom? 

Our 3 goldens are our kids and part of the family, I wouldn't consider having them sleep anywhere else.  FWIW they don't sleep on our bed, they sleep on their beds.
+1. Dogs are pack animals and you are the pack leader. Our dogs are welcome anywhere in the house except for on the bed or in the kitchen during meal times. Dogs are very social and want to be around their people. I love my two Goldens but the real brew dog in the house is our Cocker Spaniel, Nugget!

Brewing up a batch of Amber tonight!

I'd knock out an american wheat. Ferment with 001 or 1056. If you want to change it up a little add some fruit. Citrus comes to mind. Hop it with some american citrusy hops like amarillo or citra. Use just enough to balance it out so its not too hoppy. Sounds like an awesome summer beer!

We're knocking out 11 gallons of the House IPA and some BBQ!

My 1st Saison. I'm following Jamil's recipe from Brewing Classic Styles.

Jeffy may be on to something regarding the vanilla porter.  How was the vanilla character addded to the porter?  Vanilla extract, or vanilla bean in the secondary, or steeped in vodka then added to the beer?  Sometimes the extract contributes a weird off flavor/mouthfeel that might be mistaken for diacetyl and/or DMS.

He never did say exactly what category he entered.  If it was Porter (Brown or Robust), then those additives will raise an eyebrow and make the judges look for a cause.
I entered it into the robust porter category which in hind sight was clearly a mistake. I used whole vanilla beans in secondary. Ive been drinking the same batch out of the keg and it tastes fine. From reading the replies here it seems as if the vanilla was maybe mistaken for the DMS.

One thing that I noticed in this discussion was that you said you entered a vanilla porter in the wrong category.  If you entered it as a porter, then the judges probably had no idea you brewed with vanilla and were looking for the reasons why it tasted as it did, therefore the DMS and diacetyl comments.
Dd they mention your specific addition on the score sheet up at the top under special ingredients?
No, they didnt. I could see that being an issue. For next time, should a Vanilla Porter go into the herb, spice category or the specialty category?

Diacetyl cam also be a sign of an infecetion. 

I take a bit of issue with the "if it tastes good to you, it is good" theory.  I've had judges find flaws with beers that I thought were great.  Bit after receiving their comments and
reevaluating the beer with the comments in mind, I found that the judges were right.  I was able to fix a few things and make what I had thought was a great beer even better.  So, even if you love the beer, don't discount what someone else tells you.
