ANNOUNCING Dog In A Box PHOTO CONTEST (with Special Guest Stars!)

Earlier this month, I showed you how much fun can be had with a simple cardboard box (see Fun With A Box).

Not to be outdone, my friends Jewels and Delilah posted their own Dogs In A Box photo on Instagram. (@jewelsndelilah on Instagram)

they may actually get shipped somewhere

That gave me an idea - why not have a Dog(s) In A Box photo contest?

To enter, just take a photo of a dog or dogs in a box, and email it to me here with the subject "Dog In A Box" and the dog's name.  If you have a blog or Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram account you'd like me to link to, please include that as well.  (Please, no cats in boxes -- that would be too easy.)  Once I receive all entries, I will do a post with all the photos, so everyone can enjoy them, and maybe get a chance to meet some new pups.


  • By sending me your photo, you give me permission to publish it on my blog in posts pertaining to this contest, but you continue to own the rights to the photo.
  • Contest will run from now until January 31.
  • Winner will be selected randomly from all entries.  (Because I know it will be impossible to select the cutest or funniest or silliest.)
  • Winner will be announced in a blog post on February 1.

PRIZE will be a BOX (of course) -- full of an assortment of dog treats & dog-related swag from BlogPaws, BarkWorld, etc.  Contest is open to U.S. residents and non-residents alike, however if winner is a non-U.S.-resident, we may have to substitute something else for the treats due to customs laws.

Sound fun?  Then find a box, get your pup, and take some photos!
