7TH ANNUAL ADOPT/RESCUE STROLL CONTEST

June 18th 2012 10:00 am
[ View A Comments (1) ]

It’s our honor to announce the SEVENTH ANNIVERSARY of the Annual Adopt Stroll and Contest! Originally created in 2006 by Lucia, we are committed to bringing it back each year!! A Special Bark Out to Gibbon, who headed the contest and took on the major share of the workload previously and is helping us get started this year. Arrroooooo!!


So what is this contest about and what do you do? Details are below!

What is the mission of the contest? :?
This is a contest created by Dogster members. It provides an opportunity allowing Dogster members to share their life experience as to how an adopted pup has brought joy, love and fulfillment to one’s life. The mission is simple -- to inspire, motivate and encourage others to consider adoption when adding a member to their family. So many beautiful pups wait in cages and foster homes throughout the world. If this contest can change just one person’s mind to adopt, we have accomplished our goal! Each year we receive many beautiful stories of love and devotion, stories from those who have brought a dog in need into their family and have found much love, some challenges and so many rewards.

Who is eligible to enter, what do you need to do? :?
All Dogsters are welcome!! Pups who have been adopted, awaiting adoption, transport pets or volunteer or who just support adoption! That’s pretty much every pup! BOL! You do not have to be adopted to be eligible.

Your entry MUST include a tagged picture and a diary entry or bio on your page. The entry/bio can be a story, a poem, an essay so long as it's on your page! Feel free to be creative BUT it must reflect adoption – and what it means to you.

How many winners and what are the categories?

There will be a total of ELEVEN WINNERS this year!!!


There are four categories with several places in the main category (Grand Prize, 2nd, 3rd and Five Honorable Mentions) for the MAIN ADOPTION CATEGORY, ONE WINNER for the RAINBOW ANGEL CATEGORY (added in 2008), and ONE WINNER for the SASSY’S SENIOR CATEGORY created especially for Sassy, a beloved Dogster member who went to the Rainbow Bridge this year, a contest judge and strong supporter of the Dogster community and the contest (added in 2010). Pups who are 8 years or older are eligible to enter into this category and we suggest your diary entry be more specific to adoption and senior living, and a category added just last year, SPECIAL NEEDS!!!! To be eligible to enter for Special Needs, you must have a physical disability and/or have a chronic or terminal illness. If you are unsure if you qualify, please contact one of the judges to assist you. We suggest your diary entry be more specific to adoption and special needs!


What's the Deadline? :?
Pictures must be entered before Sunday, July 8th @ 9 pm Dogster time (PST) ~~ that gives you plenty of time to decide on your entry and ask us any questions!


Can you enter more than one picture? :?
Only ONE picture per pup. If you have siblings or fosters, each dog can have one individual photo entered with their own entry/bio. Entering more than one photo for one pup may result in disqualification!


What type of picture? :?
Photos should capture 'the good life'. Whether it's lounging on a comfy couch, playing fetch with your human or wrestling with your siblings - any picture that shows the positive impact of being in a great home! Natural pictures are preferred but you can enter a picture that is animated, edited or anything else to celebrate adoption and rescue. No special consideration is given for edited pictures.

What's the tag for the stroll? :?
For the Main Adoption category, tag your pic ~~ mainadopt12stroll
For the Rainbow Angel Category, tag your pic ~~ Angeladopt12stroll
For the Sassy Senior Category, tag your pic ~~ SSadopt12stroll
For the Special Needs Category, tag your pic ~~ SpNadopt12stroll


Not sure how to tag a pic? Then pmail Georgie for instructions.

Make sure you check out the STROLLS during the contest!
Main Adopt ‘12, Rainbow Angel Adopt ‘12, Sassy Senior Adopt ‘12, Special Needs Adopt ‘12


What about the diary entry/bio? :?
For your diary entry, you must title the entry ADOPT 2012 CONTEST so we know which diary to review. We strongly recommend that if you want to use a previous diary entry, please copy it as one of your more recent entries so it will be easier to locate. If it is in your bio, please be sure you also place the same title at the place of the bio you want us to consider. It can never be too short or too long so long as it is about adoption and what it has meant to you.

We cannot consider an entry that is not appropriately titled. If you have FALLING OBJECTS on your page, please note that some of us judges might have trouble opening your page to read your entry, we will try to notify you but understand that there will be several entries to review. To make it easier, please consider removing the falling objects during the two week judging period.

First off let me say that Dogster is the best place on the internet, paws down. Mom and I are humbled by the generosity of so many pups, kitties and their humans. When I was named Dog Of The Week on Tuesday, I didn't know what to expect. The outpouring was overwhelming. Stars, special gifts, rosettes, pictures, messages and many pup pal requests flooded my email all week!! They filled our hearts with love for our fellow Dogsters. Thank you so, so much!! For once in my life I was the one receiving the attention and not my big brother, Coty! BOL!! I am truly the luckiest pup on the planet.

Also, DOTW wasn't the only honor I received this week. I was Dogster Diary of the Day on Friday 5.18.12!! What a complete surprise it was to find that email in the box Friday morning. Did not expect it at all. Again, the presents and messages were so sweet and very generous of you all. I am feeling so lucky, I think Mom is going to go out and buy a lottery ticket. BOL! But first, before she does, she must rub my tummy for luck!! ;)

"EYE" don't like it!!!

I am good, i don't need any eye medicine!! I went to the Vet last Friday and he sent Mom home with an eye wash, eye medicine and some artificial tears. My left eye is bone dry and the vet said I could go blind or even have to have the eye removed. I have been battling this issue for a long time, but Dr Mark said he is starting to notice some significant damage to my eyeball. So that is why we got the medicine!! He is hoping the medicine will help the eye to recover on its own.

You know what it is like to put eye medicine in a dog's eyes? More specifically, do you know what it is like to put eye medicine in my eyes?! It's a daily battle!!!! ;)

Eye wash and artificial tears should go in about 4 times a day it says and the eye medicine should go in twice a day. Mom is only successful ONCE a day so far ... BOL! It's a chore to say the least. Mom has been home since 3 and that is when she attempted to put medicine in my eyes. It's almost 7 and still no medicine. She keep putting a towel down to wash my eyes and i get up and move! BOL! She has done this about 10 times today ... she will keep trying because so far she has been successful, later at night when i am snoozing on the couch!!

Anyone know an easy way to get medicine in a pup's eyes without losing a finger ..... ?!?!?

What happened to me and a Pupdate 8.25.11

August 25th 2011 2:59 pm
[ View A Comments (8) ]

Before I say anything let me start off by saying how much you all rock!! Power of the Paw is a remarkable thing!!

For those who don't know the story, let me fill you in. Monday morning mom went to take us out in the front yard to do our business like she does every single morning before she goes to work. We head out when mom spots a pit bull that had gotten out of its yard (not the first time, mind you). She tried to drag us in but the pit charged us anyway. Turned out there wasn't just one dog out of its yard, but another black and white pit bull had gotten out of its yard too. Mom tried to pull me in but it was too late she, or the other one, we are not sure who had already lock their jaws on me and i was stuck. Mom ran to the backyard to get the hose and came out spraying. One was lead away real quick by its owner (who won't claim responsibility because there were two dogs out there .. says may not have been hers). We are sure she witnessed her dog attacking me but she won't say and we can't prove it.

Anyway, mom walked me back inside and i was definitely in some sort of shock. Mom took my harness off and noticed i was upset when she did that. That is when she noticed the big gash in the side of my neck. I didn't want her to look or even touch it. So, she went to work and let me simmer down. By later that afternoon she noticed i was dripping. The wound was already showing signs of infection so off to the vet i went!!

When i got there, i was already running a fever. The vet didn't even have to take a long look at the area. He knew i needed something done and fast. So off to surgery i went. I had a laceration repair. Basically, they stitched the area, shaved it and then cut around the wound ... then restitched me and put in a couple drainage tubes so we could treat the area with some medicine. It was routine and i was allowed to go home with in a couple hours.

Pupdate, 8.25.11 I am doing great. The area looks good, clean and no sign of infection. Looks like the wound is starting to try and heal. I am becoming more aware of the area, trying to itch it and lick, but i can't reach it. I am up more and more alert. I left mom a little surprise on the floor when she got home from work this morning!! BOL!! That was a good thing because i hadn't pooped in a couple days!!

Basically i am on the mend and should be as good as new in a couple weeks!! YAY!!!
