Good people of the Blogosphere – readers, writers, and stalkers alike – I am coming to you with a contest idea.
Jackie and her Friday Five for July 6th was the proverbial straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back. (No real straw or camels were used or harmed, and no backs were broken.)
I am a lover of dogs. Though I prefer big dogs, my love is blind to color, breed, size, mix, sex, etc. I know many of my followers and many of those I follow have dogs. And frankly, I want to see more dogs!
So, please email me your best dog picture. I will post my top five favorites, and I will leave the final decision up to the voters. Please note: By emailing me your dog picture, you are granting me permission to post your picture on my blog and edit the size of the photo, if needed, to fit in my blog.
The winner will receive a gift certificate for a free pint of Ben & Jerry’s, and I will make a donation to his/her animal charity of choice. If the person is lactose intolerant, I will happily eat the reward myself. Oh, I jest. If the winner is lactose intolerant, I will come up with another prize of equal value, and I will make a donation to his/her animal charity of choice.
Submissions must be received no later than Saturday July 14th at Midnight (ET). Voting will begin on Sunday July 15th. Please email your submissions to me: lenorediane(at)yahoo(dot)com. Only one entry allowed per person.
In an effort to motivate you, I’m sharing one of my favorite pictures of my all-time favorite (most beloved) four-legged friend, Lina. She was my pride and joy.
