Super Dog Sunday for Petfinder:
Football-Themed Dog Photo Contest

by Carrie Boyko, CEB
You found us! We're right here all set to have our own version of Game Day: Super Dog Sunday™. Today is Super Bowl XLVI. Who knows what number that translates to? Feel free to get the conversation going in the comments section. Believe it or not, there are prizes for that too! Yup; you can win just by leaving some comments below.


Please note that many of the full images in the Blog Hop below have been cropped to fit. The complete image will often be a big surprise, with additional theming, clever signs, captions, and head dresses on some. Please visit the posts to enjoy the full fun of the artistry of all these photos.


Okay, enough about comments. I suppose you're here to look at all the cute pet photos, or maybe you want to link up yours. If you need help, shoot a quick email to us at EventBarkers@gmail.com. Entries will remain open to blogger linkups until 9 PM. If you need to send in your photo for posting, please send it to EventBarkers@gmail.com no later than 6 PM EST today. 


The linky will close at 9 PM ET for the judges to begin deliberations. Winners will likely be announced Monday, but if a quick decision can be made, there may be an announcement on Sunday night late. We'll see how long our judges can make it. They are not getting paid for their services, so we have to be reasonable in our requests!


Our charity beneficiary, Petfinder Foundation, is thrilled to thank our sponsors, Gringa Loka, PetHub, Tom Bihn, and Wag for their generous support in making this all possible. Their donations have set the example for all of you. Pets matter! If you have anything to spare today, consider sharing a small donation, whatever that may be to you. Just click the link or any of the Petfinder Foundation banners you see on my site.


No credit card? No problem! You can even make a $10 donation with a simple text message from your phone. This small amount that you will hardly miss will show up on your phone bill next month. Please be sure to imagine the good it did when your bill arrives. Just follow the instructions on the image at the right. It will make you feel good to know you have helped.


If you enjoy the photos, won't you help us out? Maybe a Tweet about Super Dog Sunday or a message to your friends on your Facebook wall. 


Finally, notice that there are "Like" links under the entries below. You can vote for the MVP (most valuable pup!) in today's contest by clicking the "Like" under the entries you think are best. YOU will determine who wins this category.


Watch for a slideshow of entries, both here and on Dogtipper.com tomorrow. We'll also be announcing all the winners and their prizes tomorrow. Enjoy the show!

Need help? Grab all the pertinent info here and the rules here.
Super Dog Sunday™ is a charity event to support homeless pets. All proceeds of this event go to Petfinder Foundation. There is no purchase necessary to enter the photo contest, nor are you required to donate in order to enter your photo.

Good Morning everyone! What a great group of pictures! I'm excited to see more! How long until the next batch is revealed?



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Misty: There are more in the works already and email continues to arrive. Bloggers will be linking up the pics throughout the day also. Keep checking back to watch the show!



lennyg said...

Checked in before the Sunday run. The pics are great. I don't see the pic I submitted a long time ago (the Steelers were still contenders!). I'll email it again.



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@lennyg Your pic is coming. There are many to post!



lennyg said...

Ohhh. OK. Hopefully if anyone thinks their pic was missed they'll see this and not bombard you with questions :)



Misty said...

That's great Carrie! I was impressed by the number of pictures already. I'm always impressed by everyone's creativity.



Peggy Frezon said...

Happy Super Dog Sunday! Kelly and I have our footballs ready to play have some fun today. Thank you for arranging this!



Lori Miller said...

Yay! #SuperDogSunday has arrived! And brought great photos along with it! Nice work, everyone! I voted, have you??? :)



Rick said...

Hello! Great shots! Carrie, nothing seems to happen when I hit a like button. Is that because I share a network with other voters? We're not on the same computer. Thanks!



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Rick: That is possible since you're probably on the same I.P. address. I'm not sure how it works, but there are some controls for over-zealous voters :) Sorry!



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Sharon Gilbert: I see we received another photo from you of Schooner. We'll get the other one up shortly, as it is apparently your preferred entry. Thanks for the heads up.



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Misty: Me too! You never know how many will actually show up until it arrives. It's looking great so far!



shilohsmom said...

So many great pictures! Good luck to all the participants and the Petfinder pups. I hope this helps some of them get adopted!



Ashley Clark said...

@Ashley Clark: Good question. So many photos to post that I'm going to focus on that for now. ***EXTREMELY SWAMPED**

melf said...

Oops! I think I misunderstood the theme part. Sorry Carrie. Feel free to remove mine. We have no footballs or team logo items here at Casa del Mel.



Misty said...

Wow, what a great turnout! Congratulations Taylor! I sure hope some of our Petfinder pets find a new home today. Congratulations to everyone for such a great set of pictures. Beautiful critters!



Luna said...

Happy Superbowl!! :)

We don't have in Aus, but we can appreciate the commercials.. hehe :D



Jules said...

Wow some of these photos are just fantastic! Great job everyone, well done! I can't wait to see who wins (and not just for my sake, I want to see who all the winners are in each category - this is such great FUN!) One question though, why aren't the email photos showing up here? Is that just because this is the blog hop part? Just curious, I thought all the entries would be on here, that's all. <3 <3 <3 Super Dog SUNDAY!



Jules said...

Just wanted to check on why Ralphie's photo wasn't on here that I submitted by email, could someone check on that pretty please? :)



Jules said...

Congrats Taylor B.! Enjoy the prize package! (I know your doggie baby will!)



Lori Miller said...

Wow! Each time I check back on the site there are MORE fabulous photos! What a great turnout for this event! Super job by EVERYONE getting these photos of their pets. It's not just #SuperDogSunday - It's Super Dog, Cat, Snake, Guinea Pig, You-Name-It-It's-Here Sunday! :)



FiveSibesMom said...

We came over after 9, but just wanted to visit and say there are some great photos! We didn't have chance earlier today, but the Sibes did enjoy the Big Game Day here too! Hope everyone had a fun day!



Carrie, with Tanner and Oliver said...

@Jules: Ralphie was published in the blog posts, but somehow did not get linked up to the Hop. I apologize; it was my fault. Please visit Ralphie here: http://www.allthingsdogblog.com/2012/02/super-dogs-keep-rolling-in.html

Thank you for letting me know and again, I sincerely apologize for leaving him off of the Blog Hop. Happy tails!
