How does this work?
To get your beagle into our calendar you may to submit as many photos as you wish ($5.00/entry). After the cutoff date, the voting round starts. Only ONE entry per family will be selected to move to the voting round. However, to increase the odds of being selected you may enter several photos. The more we have to select from, the greater your chances of moving to the voting round..and getting into the calendar! This is the fun part….during the voting round, all of the selected entries will be shown on our web site where people can vote for your dog. YES, you may solicit anybody you want to throw votes onto your dog’s picture. The photo with the most votes wins (cover – see above) and the next 12 become the featured months (Jan-Dec)!! You may purchase a special date (text) or purchase a spot for small photo. The small photos are inserted into the calendar (not voted on) in a location selected by the graphic designer.
