Tricky Contest for April Fool's Day!

Here at RoaDM, we're hosting our first official Doggie Contest!


Here's what you do:
1. Get a video of your doggeh (or kitteh) doing their best trick.
2. Send a link of the video to allisonwalton79 at gmail dot com, or post the youtube code into the comments section.
3. Submissions will be taken through March 30th. Submissions will be posted on March 31st. Voting will be conducted by a non-partial judge, and the winner and their video will be posted just in time for April Fool's Day!
4. Winner will receive a special prize from Gus and Waldo!

Contest rules:
1. One video submission per doggeh.
2. Please TRY to keep your videos under 1 minute.
3. You don't have to film the most elaborate trick. Points will be given for reaction time, creativity, execution, and presentation. So, even if your dog only knows how to sit, make it the Best Sit Ever, and you might win!

If you would like a button to put on your bloggie (similar to the poster above), then simply indicate that when you post your video and we'll send it to you!

Good luck!

p.s. Don't forget to check out the post below--mommee visited Stella!

Hey there! That's a fabu idea for a contest! Love tricks - watching them, that is. Let's see... what can I come up with? How about paws up on the counter and sneaking the creepy furry cat's dish of breakfast! Those are the kinds of tricks I do - maybe I should put a ton of salt in it hehe? I'll think on it scratch scratch...
Love and Licks,

Oh my gosh! I'd sooo totally participate in this contest but our camera just kapoot! Dieded! So it has gone for a repair & it may take within 2 weeks & that's also when I'll be delivering too. Oh shoot! I think I should be able to perform 30 tricks within 1 minute. Snort!

Butt sniffs,

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ooh, how cool! I wanna join in too! :)
Are we only allowed to do one trick on the video? Does a dance move count as a trick?

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

GoldenSamantha said...

I would love to submit a vid - that is a great idea! I love treats - the problem is... da tricks! But I'll work on one! Problem: Mom just got a tiny video camera and can't figure out how to work it. She's doing the best she can, so I have to be patient! Poor Mama... I just love her so much! Happy Friday everybody!
xo Love, Sammie
