Did you hear? GUND is having their first ever “Top Dog” Contest from July 16 (I know, it’s already started – I’m late to the party myself since I just learned about it yesterday, so we can be fashionably late together). 

The grand prize is a limited edition GUND plush in the winning pup’s likeness – pretty cool, no? 

Just think, your dog could be replicated in a fun plush:

How seriously cute are those? Here’s the official information:

Inspired by the wildly-popular “World’s Cutest Dog” Boo stuffed dog from GUND, the “Top Dog” Contest invites pup parents from around the country to submit photos of their own four-footed friends on the GUND Facebook page in one or all of the following four categories:

  • Most Beautiful Dog
  • Ugliest Dog
  • “Doganista”/Best Dressed Dog
  • Dog that Most Resembles its Owner

Too bad they don’t have a “Dorkiest Dog” category – Rolex would be a contender for that one:

The Grand Prize will have tails wagging; GUND will create a limited edition model of the winner’s dog. And that’s not all – the dog will be available in gift and toy stores in 2013. That’s right – your pup could become a GUND plush just like Boo.  How cool is that?

You can submit your dog photos by way of the contest tab on GUND’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/GottaGettaGUND). The contest will run July 16 – August 15, 2012; winners will be chosen the week of August 20th and announced the week of August 27th.

Entries: July 16 – August 5
Voting: August 6 – August 15

But that’s not all – simultaneously with the “Top Dog” Contest on Facebook, GUND will run the “Most Pinteresting Dog” Contest on Pinterest.  Just post your entry on your own pages, “tag” #GUNDMostPinterestingDogContest and submit the link to GUND at MostPinterestingDog@GUND.com.  The “Most Pinteresting Dog” Contest winner will be selected based on the number of times the entry is “liked” on the GUND Pinterest board.  The winner will receive a selection of GUND products – valued at $250 retail.

For complete rules, see Top Dog” Contest and Most Pinteresting Dog” Contest rules at www.GUND.com.

So what are you waiting for?  Get busy and show off your dork doggies!
