Dex The Halls 2019 Dog Holiday Contest Winners

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and 10 lucky dog holiday photo contest winners have been selected. This is the ninth year Fidose of Reality has hosted a photo contest with a holiday theme.

We received hundreds of entries, and our panel of three independent judges had a hard time choosing the top five (we even had a tie!) and the five honorable mentions (so we picked 10 honorable mentions).

One thing is for sure: Dogs are amazing and they help add joy, celebration, and love to the season. Give your dogs an extra tummy rub and smooch because they are all winners to us.

    I just loved Wrigley Ryder and Santa. OK! I loved them all but Wrigley just put a big smile on my face and I was so happy to see my girls as getting Honorable Mention. I’m so proud of them all. Nothing better than sweet furbaby faces. Thank you Carol for all you do. This is truly My Happy Place.

    Wow!
    What an creative way to repay our friendly and loyal canine buddies. Outside of this, I am of the opinion that firm measure be taken (through government policies) to protect animal right.

    Once again, great initiative from organizers and winners
