Dog Photo Fun: Football-Theming
of Your Pup Pics

by Carrie Boyko, CEB

Our upcoming photo contest on Super Dog Sunday™ is football-themed, of course. Last year some of you shared that taking photos of your dogs in NFL football-themed costumes or scenes was challenging. This year our plan is to make it super simple, with more options and lots of help. 

Not only will we provide more ideas, help and tips, but we also have a Twitter Party planned to make sure it's loads of fun to soak up the details. We'll be bringing in a Pet Photographer from Life + Dog Magazine to offer photo tips for those brave souls who want to play dress up with their Fido.

Some of you may say "Twitter Parties move so fast. How will I be able to get the tips?" I've got you covered!

I'll recap the tips, ideas and help in a post here at All Things Dog Blog a day or two after the Twitter Party to make sure you're able to get all the ideas in easy access. Sound good?

Just like our other Twitter Parties, there will be bunches of fun prizes for Fido, and even some for you, the dog lover. If you'll be eager to win, be sure to read all the details below. In order to win prizes at the Twitter Party, you'll need to sign up on the RSVP list at the bottom of the post. Be sure to follow the instructions for easy RSVP. Here's all the details:

Easy RSVP Instructions: If you don't already have a Twitter account, you'll need to start there. Sign up at When you return here, follow these instructions for adding your name to our guest list by using the linky list below the instructions.

  3. Type your Twitter handle in the first box that says "Link Title or Blog Title". It will look like this: @MyTwitterHandle. Be sure to include the @ sign connected to your handle. This is a link to your page on twitter. Mine is @AllThingsDog.
