Monica Turner McPherson’s “Who’s in Charge Here?” Photo Challenge

We welcome Monica Turner McPherson to NPDD’s photo contest as a repeat sponsor (they’re the best!) and she has a contest theme for which you will need the help of a small person. As in a child-person. There is a special caveat with this contest you will want to make note of. Find it in the “challenge” section. 

The challenge:  There are those dogs who instinctively know that a child is not a short adult, but a younger, somehow different version of one. Such dogs show infinite patience and tolerance with children, and when they’re together, it’s sometimes hard to tell who is actually in charge! A little one might be holding the leash, for example, but who is is leading whom?  Your challenge is create a scene that makes our judges wonder: Who’s the boss here?  Special instructions: The Internet is a scary place these days, and we ask that you use a prop to obscure the face of the child for their protection and privacy. They can wear a hat pulled low, or put the dreaded The “I Lve My Purebred Dog” sign in front of their face. Part of the dog can obscure their face, of they can wear oversized sunglasses. You get the idea. 

The prize: $50 Amazon Cash Card
Sponsor: Monica Turner McPherson
