Week 2: Guess the Dog Count

Dogs are always coming in and out of the courtyard and the number of dogs that are outside at any given moment varies.

Your task is to guess how many dogs will be out in the courtyard on Thursday, August 12 at exactly 2:30pm PST.

Make your guess by commenting on the photo (posted on August 9, 2010) with your guess (0-1, 2, 3, or 4+). Correct answerer(s) will be determined at exactly 2:30pm PST on Thursday, August 12th. If more than one person guesses correctly, then all correct guessers will be put into a drawing to win the $25 gift card to PETCO. Winner will be announced at 3:00pm PST Thursday, August 12, 2010.

Please limit your guesses to one of the four options. Guesses of numbers greater than 4 will be converted to “4+”.
