Dogtipper and I sure did pick a tough time to set up a charity event. We persevered through the holidays and vacation period. Luck came our way and we have four fab sponsors to show for our efforts. We're so excited to show them off!
Allow me to introduce you to Petfinder Foundation's new best friends in Alpha order, just as it would be in the dog world. BOL!
- Gringa Loka is a new treat company, just getting on their feet and eager to give back already. Their adorable waffled treats appear to be a delight for our dogs and we're loving their willingness to work with us so generously.
- PetHub has their sites set on making it easier for lost pets to find their way home. While a tough goal indeed, they are making great strides, and winning awards along the way. We are proud to have them on our philanthropic team of brands who want to give Petfinder Foundation a little paw bump.
- Tom Bihn is relatively new to the pet world with a new introduction to their offering of well-made bags of all kinds. Their pet carryall for walks and dog park trips is a nice addition to their other products, made to last, with some truly great features.
- Wag is an online bank for dog lovers. Cool concept, huh? Watch for their profile review coming up to learn more about their plans and the concept. I love their tagline: "Enjoy a rich life with your pack."
So, our sponsors for Super Dog Sunday™ are no longer a secret. The Tweets have begun to sing their praises, and everyone is busily preparing a photo op for Fido to enter in the NFL-themed photo contest. Even my little Oliver has a totally-cool costume. Too bad he can't win :( The prizes for this shindig have all been provided by our 4 sponsors, so watch for some great swag coming your way. Submission information is listed below the post.
To help you out, there are options: enter your own dog's pic and/or enter a doctored up (aka themed) Petfinder pic. You can join our #SuperDogPics Twitter Party to learn more about how to theme your photo easily, get photo tips from pet photographer and Publisher of Life and Dog, Brett Chisholm, and win prizes too.
Super Dog Sunday™ Photo Contest Rules: One photo per dog may be submitted. Each submission is to be either published by a blogger and linked up to the Blog Hop OR sent to EventBarkers@gmail.com. Event Barkers is the event planning partnership of Dogtipper and All Things Dog Blog. Email submissions must be sent by kick-off time on February 5 and may begin immediately. Please include your dog's name and your name. Only your dog's name will be published on the Blog Hop, purely as identification.
In case of Internet disruption or Linky List downtime, Event Barkers has established a "Rain Date". Super Dog Sunday™ will open Monday, February 6, 2012 at 8 AM and close at midnight Tuesday, February 7. Mark you calendars just in case.
