Giveaway: Iams Unconditional Love Contest CLOSED

**This giveaway is closed. Out of 4045 entries, our winner is Chelsea R. Congratulations!**

How does your dog welcome you home? The unconditional love that our dogs give us each and every day starts with welcoming us home (even if we’ve just been gone for five minutes!)

To celebrate that unconditional love, Iams recently asked pet lovers to choose the stories on the Iams Facebook or YouTube page to select the stories of love that resonated most with them. The winners will be featured  on national TV this month, all designed to show that high-quality food can keep a dog as strong as their love!

One lucky DogTipper reader will win the prize basket shown above including a pet bed, Iams food, toys, and more!

    Schooner and Skipper are watching out the window and when they see me drive in the driveway they are at the door waiting with a toy in their mouths. They bring me one of their very favorite toys. Then they want to give me kisses. It is a joy to walk in the house to their unconditional love everyday.

Then she jumps all over me and kisses me!
