Preservationists of Purebred and Purposefully Bred Dogs’ “Where’s Waldo” Photo Challenge

We are “twitterpated” to welcome the return of past sponsors, Preservationists of Purebred and Purposefully Bred Dogs, true partners in helping promote, educate, and bring together ethical breeders and advocates of purebred dogs.  The administrators understand the importance of building a community of respectful contributors and students on the subject of purebred dogs, and have done so beautifully.

They are sponsoring the hugely popular, “Where’s Waldo” Photo Challenge (subtitled: Hiding in Plain Sight), and have donated a $100 Visa cash card!

The Challenge:  Your challenge is to make our judges work hard to find your dog in your photo, but the dog MUST be in plain sight and not so far away or entirely covered up as to be impossible to find. Think camouflage. Think on how to use your dog’s own coat color, texture and/or patterns to match or blend in with his or her surroundings. 



NOTE: Please send the solution to your photo to us privately. Examples of past winners are below:

The leafy photo at the top was the 2021 winner by Leslie Keys.
