Turn your canine into a star

Morinville Community Services is on the hunt for the perfect canine photograph this month and are asking for your help.
Residents are encouraged to submit a picture of their favourite pooch to firstname.lastname@example.org and be entered to win the cover spot of a new dog park brochure.
“Why pick out some meaningless photo online when we can get the community involved in the process,” asked Chris Fish, businesses and operations manager for Morinville community services.
“The hardest part will be picking a winner. We’ve already had some great entries and more keep coming in every day.”
The dog picture contest is the first of its kind for community services. Fish has been impressed with the response and is hopeful they will set up similar contests in the future.
“We are always looking for new ways to interact with the community and so far this has gone really smoothly.”
The brochure will advertise Morinville’s new off-leash dog park when it opens. The new park received $50,000 in funding from the city and an additional $20,000 from Champion Petfoods.
It will be a welcome addition to the community for pet lovers because there are no other off-leash parks in Morinville at this time.
If you think your mutt has the perfect puppy eyes then send in your photo before the 4:30 p.m. deadline on August 15.
There is a limit of one entry per family.
