There are lots of dog-themed greeting cards out there these days. Most feature a photo of a cute dog looking humorous or sweet for the camera. These cards are nice, but when you’re in the mood for something fun, stylish, and slightly sophisticated, you really have to sniff around.

Sniff no more! Dogster has done the sniffing for you, and our noses brought us to the cards of talented illustrator Dee Densmore-D’Amico, who specializes in whimsical dog art with a sophisticated flair. Check out a few of her cards, above and below.

Nifty, aren’t they? These are just three of six designs (blank inside) in a packet of a dozen 5″x7″ greeting cards you’ll get if you’re the winner of our Canine Card Contest.

Here’s what you do: Go to Dee’s site and click on “pet portraits” at the top of the page. (Yes, she also does whimsical portraits of pets and their people. These are not your standard pet portraits. You can imagine, for instance, the dynamics of the poodle and her family in the fun “portrait” below!) Then come back to this post and leave a comment about which one you liked best, and why.

Your comment will serve as your “raffle ticket” for a random drawing we’ll do on Tuesday, Feb. 8. We’re giving away a packet of cards to two winners, so you’ll have double the chance of winning (sort of)! The deadline for entering is Monday, Feb. 7, at 6 p.m. PDT. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, Feb. 9.

Have fun looking around, and good luck to you!
