Betsy Copeland’s “My Little Stinker” Photo Challenge

Bloodhound friend and longtime supporter of National Purebred Dog Day, Betsy Copeland, returns as a cherished sponsor, and this year, she challenges photographers to show off “your little stinker” to our judges.

The Challenge:  Let’s face it, even the most angelic dog can be a little stinker from time to time. Whether it’s a bad habit, or things they do that make you laugh (or hold your nose) at arm’s length, this contest puts you to the test of finding creative ways to interpret “stinker.” Be creative, have safe fun with your dog, and make our judges chuckle – or be glad they’re not in the same room!

The prize: $50 gift certificate to Alden Odor Solutions, non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, biodegradable, and environmentally safe cleaning products for people, pets & the environment.
