National Purebred Dog Day is pleased to welcome first time sponsor, Lakeview Dog Gear, crafters of handmade dog collars for all breeds, and specializing in collars incorporating vintage jewelry;
The challenge: Is your dog’s idea of heaven being neck deep in sausages and briskets? Playing with their best chum wearing angel wings and a halo? A belly rub that never ends? Judges will pick their winner based on creativity – thinking outside the box – the expression of nirvana on the dog’s face (in breeds where you can see the face), a goofy grin, eyes closed in bliss, complete relaxation – all those little things that point to a happy dog “in heaven.” Feel free to incorporate the required sign as a prop.
The prize: Custom collar made specifically for winner’s dog
The Sponsor: Lakeview Dog Gear
