Our Holiday Pet Photo Contest Winners!

By Julia Williams

I had so much fun looking at all of the wonderful pics submitted for CANIDAE’s last photo contest on Facebook. It’s always hard to choose my favorites because they’re all just so darn cute. Seriously, how could I possibly choose just one dog photo and one cat photo for my vote? They’re all winners in my eyes because the subject – a beloved pet – is near and dear to my heart. But they can’t all be awarded the awesome CANIDAE food prizes, unfortunately. I wish they could, because it’s such great pet food (my three kitties have eaten it for 10 years!).

One winning photo was chosen by the most online votes, but that still left two other winners for our panel of pet lovers to choose. After much deliberation, I finally picked my faves and my votes were tallied with the others…and here are all three winners!

Santa’s Little Helper: BC Davidson’s adorable little dog, Ruby, was the winner for the Most Online Votes category, with 153 votes. BC said “Ruby was rescued from the Animal Shelter and has been the most patient and wonderful dog. Here she is standing up ready to be Santa’s helper.”

A Cat with Mad Climbing Skills: The “Most Festive Cat” photo chosen by our panel of pet lovers was taken by Christa Strub, who wrote this about her cat, “This is a little foster who is staying to live with us. She has been up the tree near to the top multiple times a day.” Yay for a foster kitty finding her forever home! And with such impressive tree-scaling skills already, just wait until next year.

The Big Wrinkly Elf: The “Most Festive Dog” photo chosen by our panel of pet lovers was Kathryn Dunlap’s elf, errrrr…dog, Rufio. Kathryn wrote, “Everyone loves a big wrinkly Elf!” We agreed!

“Pets Hiding” Photo Contest – Win Free CANIDAE!

By Julia Williams

Dogs and cats love to hide, don’t they? They hide under our rugs, blankets and bedspreads. They hide behind the curtains and underneath the bed with just their tail sticking out. They like to hide outdoors, too… in the grass, in a pile of leaves or next to a tree.

Some pets “hide in plain sight” by lying on a same-color rug or tile. You might find your pet hiding behind the couch, with just their nose peeking around. Cats are especially fond of hiding in the Christmas tree, and some hide inside a birdhouse hoping to catch a snack. Small dogs can hide in a pile of toys (like ET did).

The point is, hiding pets are funny, and they present us with lots of great photo ops. Most pet owners I know take a ton of photos, so I thought this hiding theme would make for a fun contest. (Truth be told, I “stole” the idea from my favorite cartoon kitty, Simon’s Cat. But you know what they say – there’s no such thing as a totally original idea!).

“Pets Hiding” Photo Contest

Do you have a cute photo of your pet hiding? We want to see it, and sharing it could win you free CANIDAE Pure dog food or cat food! Yep, your photo could net you a big bag of premium quality pet food for your animal pal.
