2011 Rescue Dog Calendar Contest

It’s that time again!!

Here are 30 odd images of rescue dogs from the last 12-18 months that have come through TDBCR’s doors. We try to put out a calendar every year – some years we hold a submission and voting contest, but I didn’t get it together to do that this year. Instead, I have randomly selected photos of TDBCR dogs that *I* have taken (to avoid copyright issues), and you get to vote for your favourites through the month of September.

I realize this format is ugly, but it’s functional :)

Here are your choices:

Contact Sheet

And here are your rules:

  1. 1. Cast your votes in the comment section of this post. If you vote in the comments section of another random post, they won’t count!
  2. 2. You have up to 5 choices every time you vote – if you pick more than 5 photos, the overvotes won’t count. You can list your 5 choices by their file names and please do it in a format like 1.(name) 2. (name) etc.
  3. 3. Vote only once per day please! This is obviously on the honour system, but since you will have to manually type in your 5 selections each day, I’m thinking cheaters will get tired real fast :) Your 5 selections don’t have to be the same each day, but please don’t do it more than once a day is all I’m saying.
  4. 4. You can vote once a day, every day, through to the end of September. After that, I will close the comments on this post.
  5. 5. Tell your friends!
  6. 6. Don’t panic if you don’t see a photo you remember really liking – there will also be a 365puppy calendar and of course a 3WAAW calendar of all my favourites as well.

Happy Voting!

That’s it! This is totally old skool, but I thought it would be fun to get your input on what goes into the calendar. I tried to get a selection of head shots, action shots, candids and fancily processed photos, but remember I took somewhere in the vicinity of 80,000 photos last year, so flipping through them to grab a selection was laborious. And of course some of my dogs appear in there, but that’s because they are the dogs I see the most. :) As long as we end up with a nice cross section of some of the wonderful dogs adopted from TDBCR, I’m happy with whatever you decide. I leave it in your capable hands!!

PS – Piper thanks you for the well wishes. Her franken-ear is stitched up from stem to stern, inside and out, and she is wearing pantyhose on her head to keep the damaged ear immobile – if she shakes it too hard, she could develop a hematoma, so the ear has to be tucked flat to her head. She is angry about this turn of events, but I expect nothing less from my wee witch ;-)
