Kingsbury Harriers’ “I’m all Ears” Photo Challenge

Does your dog have selective hearing?

Can they hear the opening of a treat bag from another room? In another house? In another state?

Do they occasionally suffer from inside-out ear??  Or “bed ears?” Or have ears that can wrap around?

We are delighted to welcome back Kingsbury Harriers as a sponsor, and this year they have a really fun challenge with which all dog owners can relate: The “I’m all Ears” Photo Challenge.

The challenge:  Dog ears can be upright or dropped. They can be bat, button, rose or tulips. And they hear everything……….unless they won’t.  In this photo challenge, your task is to showcase your dog’s ears and how he or she uses them. Are they expressive or attention-grabbing? Do they response to certain stimuli, or have a life of their own during a bath or as they sleep? Dazzle our judges with entries that highlight the unique and amusing ways in which dogs react with their ears. And don’t forget the sign!

The Sponsor: Kingsbury Harriers

The prize: 925 pure Sterling Silver Running Hare Necklace (25mm long) and matching earrings from A Touch of Silver, a family business in the UK with nearly forty years experience in the jewelry trade.
