What a contest! We are so overwhelmed with the response from our Dog Days of Summer contest – we received almost 200 entries, which made picking just one winner super hard. But our team of judges did it and after much deliberation, our winner is:

Ashley Presenger and her dog, Sydney!

In case you didn’t see the photo and the story that was posted on our Facebook page, here it is again:

“This photo was taken on our annual week long camping trip. We drive 4 hours into the bush and set up a campsite on a beautiful, isolated beach. The water at the lake is so clear (and cold!). I was swimming with Sydney and I had my GoPro camera with me. There is no screen on it, so I was just taking random photos. When I returned home, I uploaded all the pictures and came across this one. I love that the water is so clear that you can see her paws underwater. It’s almost as if she’s swimming right at you.”

Ashley and Sydney will receive a Petlinks Patio Pad, Solvit Deluxe Car Safety Harness and a Solvit Deluxe Tubular Car Barrier. We’d like to thank our sponsors for donating these awesome prizes for our Dog Days of Summer Contest.

And don’t worry – we’re going to be starting up another contest soon (like, in the next week), because there’s plenty more summer left!
