It started off as an idea from a follower who suggested it to me at an event and it has became a reality. Our first annual Cleveland Dog Calendar Contest came to an end over the weekend and we received 57 photos for the calendar! Not bad for our first time. After much deliberation between the 9 judges (we had to recruit more judges for breaking ties), the winners of the feature photo for each month were decided! For many categories, it was hard to pick a winner due to the amount of great photos sent in! All photos will be in the calendar and each entry is receiving a calendar. We should have these calendars made and ready to sell by mid-October both online and at dog friendly events. We plan to have a Calendar Release Party to pick up your calendar and we will donate the cost to ship to the local animal shelters! Follow us on social media to stay up to date on the latest info. We thank everyone who participated! We love all of your dogs!
We also want to thank our pawesome sponsors:
