Week 1 (May 5-9): Anthropomorphize Your Pet

beer-cat_drunk_animals_drinking_beer_dogs_cats-588x453It isn’t uncommon in our offices to hear someone speak “in the voice” of their pet to express their pet’s thoughts and I’m sure a few of you do this as well. People buy clothing and accessories for their pets and can go as far as treating their furry friend as a person.

Whether you do these things or not, we want your participation in this week’s giveaway! This week, post a photo of your pet doing a ‘human’ action, or in a ‘human’ scene. It’s time to get creative, because this week’s winner will NOT be randomly selected– we will be choosing our favorite! Here are some ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  • Reading the newspaper
  • Applying deodorant
  • Think of actions that humans do, but pets do not

Send in your photo and you’ll be entered into the contest for a $25 gift card. Winner will be chosen on Friday, May 9th 2014 and honorable mentions will be featured on our blog.

How to enter:

  1. Email your photo to [email protected]

Week 2 (May 12-16): Photo Caption Contest

Join us for a photo caption contest this week! On Monday, May 12th, we’ll post a pet photo to our Facebook page and it is your task to come up with the best/funniest/most interesting caption to fit the photo.

To enter, simply comment on the posted photo on Facebook. Judging will be based on Likes your comment receives so be sure to ask friends to vote for yours! The commenter with the most Likes by the following Monday, May 19th will be named our winner and receives a $25 gift card. In the event of a tie, the top commenters will be placed into a random shuffle to determine a winner.


Week 3 (May 19-23): Dog DNA: Guess the Breeds

On Tuesday, May 20th, we’ll post a photo of a mixed dog breed from our local Seattle Humane Society and it’s your task to guess the breeds in her mix! We’ve run a dog DNA test, thanks to Wisdom Panel, and we’re excited to share the results!

Entries will be accepted until Wednesday, May 21st at 2pm Pacific time and we will reveal the results on Wednesday at 3pm. Whoever guesses closest will receive a $25 gift card!
