Everyone knows their dog is the top dog.
Now, Basking Ridge Patch is giving you the chance to prove it. And voting has started for the nominees, after the submissions period has closed.
Over the next month, in partnership with Morris Animal Inn, Patch is launching its Top Dog contest.
Enter our contest to give your pooch the chance to compete and then browse the contest to see other pups from your Patch!
The winners from 10 participating area Patches will then go on to the final round, where the winner will be awarded a $250 gift card for a weekend stay at the Morris Animal Inn for your dog!
Here’s how it works:
Beginning Nov. 26, dog lovers uploaded favorite photo of their dogs to this article. (Those making nominations a registered user first. In the caption, tell us your dog’s name and what makes him or her so special. One photo per owner please.)
The submission deadline was Sunday, Dec. 9 at 11:59 p.m.
Between Monday, Dec. 10 and Sunday, Dec. 16 at 11:59 p.m., our users will vote in the comments on what dog is Basking Ridge's Top Dog.
From there, Basking Ridge's Top Dog will vie with the other nine local winners for the grand prize. The grand prize winner will be announced Friday, Dec. 21 at noon.
So make sure you hit that social media campaign trail early!
