When it comes to contests and fun ways to connect and play, Spot’s got it goin on. This month the biggie is Spot’s annual Cover Model Search – Portland, happening at Doggie Palooza Sunday Oct. 16 at the World Forestry Center.
Come out and play! Dress ‘em up or bring them au naturale. You’ll get a sweet commemorative photo of your sweetpea by renowned photographer David Childs, plus he/she will be entered to win a professional photo shoot and a turn on the cover of Spot. Entry is $15 and proceeds benefit Oregon Dog Rescue.
Also, Spot has begun hosting contests on Facebook. It all started when we came into some gorgeous plush pet beds to give away, courtesy of our friends at Bi-Mart. Show Dogs Grooming joined the fray, and we invited friends to post photos of their “Sleeping Beauties.” The photo with the most likes (take a peek at the winner) — won complimentary beauty treatments from Show Dogs, and went home with their beautiful new bed.
At this writing we’re wrapping the latest contest, this one in the spirit of the recent Dogtoberfest celebration, which is Portland’s biggest dogwash of the year. This time we asked folks to submit their “dirty little stories” or photos about their pet(s) all-time dirtiest adventure. The winner gets a Conair “Yellow Dog” pet drier, and a complimentary groom from the award-winning pros at The Muttley Crew.
The reason I mention the contests that have already wrapped is two-fold: to give you a taste of what’s shakin and will be ongoing, and also in hopes that you’ll take a peek at the photos and stories from these contests — smiles guaranteed.
Bring your star for the Cover Model Search, and come out and play! And check out Spot on Facebook, join the fun, and enter to WIN!
Yours in everything pet,
