POOCH PICS: THIS PHOTO CONTEST IS FOR THE DOGS

We asked you to share your pictures and stories about a special canine friend in your life, and boy did you deliver! With over 1,200 entries, choosing the winners was a difficult task. But after a bit of growling and panting, we decided on these doggie treats: 

LIBBY HAS FILLED A HOLE IN OUR HEARTS

2014 GRAND PRIZE WINNER!

LIBBY HAS FILLED A HOLE IN OUR HEARTS

After my daughter's dog died suddenly, my husband was heartbroken. We had quarantined Cooper when the military sent my daughter's family to Hawaii and my husband was very attached to him. I found Libby, a 2 1/2 year old Aussie, to fill the void. My husband immediately fell in love with her. Since he is handicapped and home all day, she has become his constant companion. I can't imagine a dog who is loved more.

I do dog rescue in South Florida where the population is overwhelming. Pit bulls are an extremely misunderstood breed. This is beautiful, loving Rose, who actually got out of the shelter for one day to go to the park. She longs for a home to call her own. This is a beautiful shot of her as she looks to the sky with the sun beaming on her.
