It’s your devoted Assistant Editor Liz here. While it’s part of my job to make sure I deliver the very best in cuteness, my duties also include keeping in touch with all of you through our various social media outlets. I was taking a look at our Dogster Instagram account and thought it was looking a little lonely. If you haven’t already, you should totally follow us, because we love looking at your adorable dogs.
But more than just following us, let’s do something fun, shall we? Let’s host our very own virtual Dogster Dog Show! We don’t need all the pomp and circumstance and pedigree and papers of an actual dog show — what’s so cool about Dogster is that we can come together from all over the world to talk about dogs.
So now’s your chance to show off your pup and win a sweet Dogster gift bag, too.
Sit, stay, and listen, because this is how it’s going to work:
1. Follow us on Instagram@Dogster.
2. Between May 17 and May 19, upload photos of your dogs via Instagram and make sure to tag them with #DogsterDogShow2013 and either #PureBreed or #MuttBreed, depending on your pup. In other words, your entry should have two tags: #DogsterDogShow2013 and one of the breed tags.
3. Between May 22 and May 27, we will upload your entries to our Instagram and open them up to voting. The top dogs who receive the most hearts and comments will move onto the final round.
4. Between May 29 and June 2, we’ll post the final-round dogs here on Dogster for a lightning round of voting. There will be a winner to represent purebred dogs and a winner to represent all the beloved mutts out there. We’ll announce the winners on June 5.
Got it? Good dog!
Now, ready, set, Instagram! And may the cutest dogs win.
Contest subject to change. Only U.S. residents are eligible to win. We’ll make every effort possible to contact winners; however, if we can’t get in touch, we’ll pick someone else. Only U.S. residents are eligible to win. Thanks, and good luck!
