Don’t be alarmed! Bizarre as it may look, the photo above is really just gentle Jake with a “nerd mouth.” If you click here or on the photo, you can see and hear him talk. It’s quite amusing, and his accent confirms my suspicions that he has a little English Labrador retriever in him.
You, too, can make your perfectly nice dog look utterly ridiculous (or cute, or hilarious) by entering the Dentastix Denture Your Dog Contest. Click here to upload your dog’s photo, and denturize it by adding the smile, words, and voice of your choice. The winning dog will be featured in an advertisement in People magazine. The contest ends April 30, so give your dog some chops today!
But wait! That’s not the only toothy contest worth smiling about! Here’s one where the odds are more in your favor: Pedigree, the company behind the Dentastix contest, has given Dogster five “doggy dental gift bags” to give away to our readers. The bags contain Pedigree Dentastix chew toys, a doggy dental tool kit (complete with toothbrushes and toothpaste), and a fun toy.
How do you get one? Just write a comment below using the word “smile” in a sentence. Dogster will draw five names at random from the entries. (Only one entry per household, please.) You don’t have to be a poet or writer to win. You just have to write a sentence with “smile,” and then be one of the five lucky randomly drawn winners. Be sure to include your Dogster ID, or to use a legitimate email address if you’re not a registered Dogster. The contest ends March 17 at noon Pacific Time, and will be announced March 18.
Good luck! Here’s hoping these contests put a smile on your face — and your dog’s! (And I hope it’s not like the one below. That was a rather frightful look that popped up when I tried the vampire teeth on Jake’s photo. I moved them to his mouth, where they were more fitting. But the creepy look of Jake’s nose actually being a vampire mouth was something I had to share so you won’t be alarmed if teeth end up on an odd place on your own dog’s photo.)
