The Dirty Dog Pet Photo Contest ended Monday night and we are happy to say it was a big splash. We laughed, we cried, we saw so many muddy mutts! With all of these dogs in desperate need of a deep clean grooming, the judges had the tough task of choosing only ten winners. It was a mucky job, but someone had to do it!
Congratulations to the final ten:
“Proper Grooming is a Must!”
“The Dirty Dude”
“White Dog at a Muddy Dog Park”
“A Muddy Muffin”
“Helping Mom With Her Gardening”
“Ruby Towel Dries (In Dirt) Herself After a Swim”
“Spa Mud Bath”
We loved all of your entries and had a ton of fun seeing your photos throughout the month. Congratulations again to the winners, you will all receive a free grooming package good at any Best Friends Pet Care location. Thank you so much to everyone who participated! We had a blast and we hope you did too!

Congratulations to the Ross Family with their Guardian Angels photo for being chosen as the Grand Prize Winner in our Sleeps With Dogs (or Cats) Pet Photo Contest. There was a ton of competition but you managed to oversleep them all and come out the big winner! Your family will be awarded the Best Friends Sleep With Dogs Prize Package worth $1000. That includes a $250 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or veterinary hospital, a $100 gift certificate to Bed Bath & Beyond, an Orvis Dog Proof Throw Blanket, a six month supply of Frontline Plus, and an array of other items!
We had so much fun watching all of the sleepy themed photos coming through to the contest over the last several weeks. So many of your entries were creative, spirited and absolutely adorable. It was a close race, but only the 25 photos with the most votes were eligible to move onto the final round where Best Friends appointed judges scored the photos and selected the Grand Prize Winner.
Each judge scored each of the top 25 photos based on the following categories:
- Sleep With Dogs (or Cats) Theme,
- Originality & Creativity,
- Cuteness factor,
- Picture Quality,
- Level of Promotion,
- How effectively the entry conveys the “Best Friends Spirit”,
- Pet’s Appearance/Photogenic Ability and
- Technical Requirements
There were a lot of great pets to choose from, and it was certainly close, but the Guardian Angels entry edged out the rest. Not to worry- the finalists are not going home empty handed. Each of the top 5 finalists will be getting a $50 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or veterinary hospital along with a three month supply of Frontline Plus. The remaining 20 semifinalists will also receive a $20 gift certificate to use at any Best Friends Pet Care center or veterinary hospital. Now, just look at how cute these finalist and semifinalist photos were!
