The Gourmet Gift Baskets’ “Sweets and Treats” Photo Challenge

When “thank you” doesn’t seem enough.

When National Purebred Dog Day wants to say “thank you” to the judges who spend days judging our photo contests, we send them a Gourmet Gift Basket.

To express appreciation to jurors who evaluate our Fine Art/Poster competitions, NPDD sends a Gourmet Gift Basket.

Folks who have supported NPDD in a critical way, but have suffered a loss? We send them a Gourmet Gift Basket.

We have come to rely on Gourmet Gift Baskets for various occasions over the years because they can be trusted to provide personal customer service, and award-winning, handcrafted gift baskets.  There is no better way to express appreciation, congratulations, or simply, “You are appreciated!” to a show judge, special breeder, handler, friend or family member. The baskets can be personalized, come in different price points, and always are filled with high quality goodies!

And to “sweeten” the contest, Gourmet Gift Basket is offering all National Purebred Dog Day friends a discount promo code LOVEDOGS10.  Enter the code at checkout on the website or contact Lori McGuire in Corporate Sales for multiple orders 603-418-7449.

We can’t be more pleased, then, to announce that this family owned business is a new sponsor of a photo challenge this year, and the winner is in for a treat!

The Challenge:  Our dogs can get into trash, counter-surf, walk through mud after a bath, “toss” on our best rug, or destroy a cushion for sport – but all is forgiven when they do something that melts our heart (and often earns them a treat!)  Maybe they have finally mastered a trick, or looked at you a certain way.  Perhaps they’ve gotten the hang of housebreaking, or won a Best in Show!  Your task is to interpret “sweets and treats.”

Who can enter: This contest is open to US residents

Sponsor: Gourmet Gift Baskets

The prize: Chocolate Gift Basket Deluxe, a gorgeous leatherette basket filled with exquisite gourmet treats including melt-in-your-mouth truffles, delicate all-natural cookies, and an assortment of delicious chocolate-covered and flavored treats. It is the dream of those of us with a sweet tooth!
