Pets Add Life. How many of you can relate to that? My life certainly would have taken a completely different course had dogs not entered the picture. I knew I had to have a career by, for, and about dogs coupled with my second love, writing.
As a child, I recall reading a book called “The Big Book of Dogs” and being smitten. Books and dogs were a part of the fiber that was my childhood, and they are the DNA of my life and career as an adult.
Write a Poem
Recently, Fidose of Reality discovered that Pets Add Life is hosting their 5th Annual Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest. Kids in the third through eighth grades are invited to enter, so if you are a teacher or a parent, kids can enter to win:
– A $1,000 scholarship for each winning student’s classroom
– A $250 gift certificate for pet products
– And, a “by-line” in a nationally circulated magazine!
Six students nationwide will win, and the deadline is January 31, 2013, so hurry. More details about the Pets Add Life Children’s Poetry Contest here.
