Thanks to Georgie for posting this in the Missouri Mutts Group!

This has been posted in several other groups and we don't want you to miss out on participating in a great salute to adoption and rescue and having a chance at great prizes.

Today marks the beginning of The Second Annual Adopt Stroll and Contest that is OPEN TO ALL OF DOGSTER! You can start submitting your photos to the stroll and for you pups that weren't adopted or belonging to pawrents not active in rescue, you can start pawmailing Gibbon and Lucia your written entries, details of both are listed below:


Who can enter?
All Dogsters are welcome!! Dogs who have been adopted or have parents that are active in rescue can enter just a photo. Those of you don't fit either category are more than welcome to enter, but we ask that you, in addition to entering a photo in the stroll, take the time to post somewhere on your page: whether it be a picture caption, a diary entry, or one of your bio fields why you support adoption. It can be a sentence or a book, a poem or an essay: as long as it's on your page! But you MUST p-mail myself or Gibbon so that we know that it is on your page for the contest so we can let our judges know.

What's the Deadline?
Pictures must be entered before Monday, May 14 th @ 6pm Dogster time. Yes! It's a month long! I mean c'mon, it's a big deal! *bol*

Can I enter more than one picture?
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?
Photos must capture 'the good life'. Whether it's lounging on a comfy couch, playing fetch with your human or wrestling with your siblings: it has to show something great that dogs in their furever homes enjoy. It can be anything.

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

What's the tag for the stroll?
adopt07stroll - tag the photo of your choice with that and make sure you check out the other entries!

Who are the judges?
There are about a dozen of us, with a tie-breaker or two in there. Gibbon and Lucia are the onlyones who have been revealed, but if you can track us all down, you'll get a surprise prize!
