It's Photo Competition time!

Hi all, we are soooo excited. Our human said that we have made so many friends that it was about time we had a Giveaway! Well, I wasn't too sure what that meant and I did wonder if she meant Louis but no, she said not Louis ;-). 

Anyway we thought a photo competition would be fun as we so love seeing your photo's. The theme of the competition is 'Pet Summers around the World'. We have made so many great new friends from abroad as well as new buddies here that an International theme seems a brilliant idea.
The competition will run for the whole of July. All you have to do is email a photograph of yourself in the summer in your part of the world. If you want to use Photoshop or whatever that's fine, whatever you like - just something that says 'Summery' to you whether it's sunshine or snow, we hope we get to see lots of different seasons! Our friends at SAS reminded us that we forgot our feline friends so of course it's open to all.

Every Friday during July we'll publish the entries so far and then the winner will be picked by someone very special - our Granny! She's quite elderly at 80 years old but is a huge animal lover. She'll pick the final 3 and then we'll put them on here for you to vote the winner! You have the whole of July to take the photo and send it to if you have any probs with emailing it let us know, we'll confirm every entry by email - we are soooo excited as we say, get snapping you guys!

The prize is going to be a surprize hee hee - it will be a selction of goodies from us including toys and treats - wowser! We've checked and we can send things abroad so everyone's welcome. We're not entering because obviously we'd win, but here is a photo we think is quite Summery as we're sat in the flowers but we're sure you'll have some much more Summery ideas! Could you please send a little message with the photo of your name and where in the world you are, it will make life easier when we come to print them all out, thanks!  Dex and Lou xxx

Suka said...

hey Dexter and Louis,

What a fabulous idea! Of course, this week it has been so hot and humid that I would have looked dead in any photos taken of me. BOL! But then, that is Summer in my neck of the woods. :->

I am so happy that you have made so many friends and are doing this exciting contest! I wouldn't mind if I won and received Louis as the give-away prize. He seems like a fun pup to hang with. :->

I'll ask My Vickie if she can find a picture to use.

What a fun Idea.
