The Old Dog Photo Contest For December 2011

I Love Old Things!

I love anything old including furniture, t-shirts, trinkets, people and of course old dogs. I have a huge soft spot for these old furry boys and girls and I just can’t help myself.

While one of the hardest things about being a pet owner is to watch our dogs and cats get old; by the same token, I get great joy from the memories we have built with them.

Like many of you, our dogs are right up there with the rest of the family members and they matter just as much! This contest is about celebrating their lives and the happiness that our old dogs continue to give to us on a regular basis.

Don’t Be Offended If Your Old Dog Doesn’t Win – Enter Again!

I’ve thought long and hard about having this contest automated and having the winners picked randomly, but I can’t bring myself to do it.

Although easier, automated contests aren’t human and I feel that this contest is very personal, not only to myself and the other judges, but to those who take the time to share the stories and pictures with us as well.

So, please know that just because your dog wasn’t chosen as a winner doesn’t mean that we didn’t like the photo or we didn’t think your dog was cute (that would be impossible for us), etc.

You can count on the fact that we loved your photo and your story, but it comes down to making a decision and that’s the hard part of this contest.
