Countdown for Super Dog Sunday Kickoff!

The countdown is on for the big Super Dog Sunday photo contest and blog hop tomorrow, all to benefit Petfinder Foundation! We’ll start posting photos late tonight and so will our co-host,, but you can enter your photo until game kickoff tomorrow at 6pm ET (or, if you’re a blogger, you can link up your post until 9pm ET tomorrow to be entered).

Need some inspiration for your photos? Check out these gridiron photos of our dogs and don’t miss the slideshow of last year’s entries at the end of this post. Also, if you’d like to use an online photo editing tool to add a football element to a Petfinder photo or a photo you’ve already got on hand, be sure to check out our posts on using Picnik and ImageChef; both services are super easy, fast, and free!
