It’s time for The 3rd Annual Adopt Stroll and Contest! As promised to our pal, Lucia, the creator of this contest, we will keep on rockin' with the Adopt Stroll and we are super excited! We miss you Lucia! This one is for you!way to go
Who can enter and what do you need to do?shrug
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 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! It must reflect adoption – and what it means to you.
What's the Deadline?shrug
Pictures must be entered before Sunday, May 11th @ 9 pm Dogster time ~~ that gives you plenty of time to decide on your entry!
Can I enter more than one picture?shrug
Only ONE picture per pup. If you have multiple dogs, each dog can have one individual photo entered. Entering more than one photo can cause you to be disqualified!
What type of picture?shrug
Photos must 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!

Pictures can be animated, edited or anything else to celebrate adoption and rescue but no special consideration is given for edited pictures!

What's the tag for the stroll?shrug
tag your pic ~~ adopt08stroll ~~ and make sure you check out the other ENTRIES!
What about the diary entry/bio? shrug
For your diary entry, you must title the entry ADOPT 08 CONTEST so we know which diary to review. 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! We cannot consider an entry that is not appropriately titled.
Who are the judges?shrug
We have a wonderful circle of judges! Thank you to Daisy Mae, Georgie, Gizmo, Gracie Jane, Griffen, Jeannie, Peaches, Raskol, Sassy, Shiloh, The Fabulous Conway Sisters, Winston and Gibbon!

Me, Maggie and Duke were strays... we weren't adopted at the pound... does that matter? shrug

Nope! Adopting a dog off the streets or from the pound is still adoption! The guidelines for entering are pretty liberal I think.

Lucy Louise is right!way to go It's all about rescue!happy dance

And remember, you don't have to be rescued to enter. All pups are eligible to enter a pic and diary entry. For the diary entry or bio, it is what rescue means to you. Or how it has changed your life. And that could be seen from the eyes of an adopted pup, a pup whose Mom/Dad volunteers, donates, support causes etc. So long as you support adoption, you can tell us why!big grin

We see you guys in the stroll today! Pawsome!snoopy
