Then, tag #thankdogdaysofsummer on a photo of your pup doing something quintessentially summer.
What does that mean? Well, does your pup like to swim? Wear sunglasses? Eat ice cream with doggles on? Run through the sprinkler or drink from it? Lounge like a human on a chaise lounge? Lay out under the hot sun, panting with his/her tongue to the ground? We could go on, but we’ve got some swimming to do and some rays to catch.
GRAND PRIZE for BEST in SHOW (most votes) - 16 x 20 Dean Russo Canvas
Be creative, artistic, funny, beautiful or simply one of a kind. Post up and you could win a “pawesome" Dean Russo print, and not just any Dean Russo print. It’s a 16 x 20 limited edition print on canvas, which will undoubtedly impress the pants off all your friends, who’ll be drooling and wishing it was on their wall. Only BEST in SHOW (most votes) wins this coveted prize, but the staff of Thank Dog Rescue will also choose winners for Most Creative/Artistic and Funniest, whose prizes are TBD.
So, you’re not on Instagram? Well, boo hoo, why not? :) No worries, you can still join in on the fun. If Instagram is not for you, email your photo entry to firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and your pup’s name and we’ll put it in a FB album so your friends can “like” it to vote.

The Top 20 photos with the most votes on Instagram or Facebook by August 18th will continue to the final round. This final round of voting will take place on Facebook only (sorry, Instagram). We realized only after we launched the contest that there are some serious "Instagrammers" with HUGE followings, so we are also limiting each unique Instagram account, one final photo entry. We will ask you when the time comes to choose your final entry.
We will compile the final 20 entries into a Facebook album on August 18th for everyone to vote. Winners will be announced on September 1st. So sorry to switch up the rules mid-contest, but we want everyone to have a fighting chance at the grand prize.
