Sponsored: 1st Ever GUND “Top Dog” Contest

The first ever GUND “Top Dog” Contest starts today, Monday, July 16, 2012 with a grand prize of “the Boo treatment” – a limited edition GUND plush in the winning pup’s likeness! Basically, they’ll make a plush GUND that looks like your pup for gift and toy stores! How cool is that?

Inspired by the wildly-popular “World’s Cutest Dog” Boo stuffed dog from GUND, the “Top Dog” Contest invites pup parents from around the country to submit photos of your own four-footed friends on the GUND Facebook page in one or all of the following four categories:

  • Most Beautiful Dog
  • Ugliest Dog
  • “Doganista”/Best Dressed Dog
  • Dog that Most Resembles its Owner

The Grand Prize will have tails wagging; 

  • GUND will create a limited edition model of the winner’s dog
  • The dog will be available in gift and toy stores in 2013. 

That’s right! Your pup could become a GUND plush just like Boo!
