The Rolling Stones’ Mother’s Little Helper notwithstanding, we all have our own little helpers, and they are our dogs. They help us dig holes in the flower bed, taste-test the roast planned for dinner, and make sure there are no monsters lurking in the trash.
We at National Purebred Dog Day are delighted to welcome first time sponsor, Kelli Whitfield, who with this challenge pays an homage to her beloved father who loved a good chuckle. Frank loved laughing and a good prank, and your entry will pay tribute to a chap who left the earth better than he found it. By the way, Frank’s birthday is May 1.
The challenge: Your quest is to illustrate with a photo how your dog is a little helper. Their version of helping may make our judges (dog owners, themselves) cringe or laugh, but to do either means your photo just might be a winner. Don’t forget to include the sign as required below, but feel free to incorporate it as a prop. As inspiration, below we share Kelli’s own dog helping her drain a swamp:
The prize: $100 Gift Card to Amazon
The Sponsor: Kelli Whitfield
