Dog Picture Contest

June 29th, 2005, 03:23 PM
This will be on the site shortly: Contest to be officially posted on the website Tuesday June 5th, 2005.

Part of the reason why BSL went so far with our dog was because of the horrible pictures that were taken of her by by-law enforcement. We discredited those pictures, but our lawyers want to prove a point.

We're running a contest on our lawyers suggestion called "CAN YOU MAKE YOUR DOG LOOK LIKE A PIT BULL?"

This is exclusively for people who do not own pit bulls, there is a contest for pit bull owners below. How you do this is:

Stand about 2 feet in front of your dog (your dog should be facing you sitting down) so looking through the camera you see the dogs head a little bit of their body and their front legs. Snap the picture. Make sure you stay standing and if you have to, do what the by-law officer did to Lily and lean over so the angle is even worse. Wide angle lenses and fish-eye lenses do the trick too. Your dogs head should look HUGE if you've done it right, with a tiny tiny body and stubby legs and tiny feet. Then have your dog sit normally. Line yourself up with the dog's midpoint - center - so that there's no distortion at all and take a picture of your dog in the same pose. Send the picture to - Subject: Pit Bull Contest - Make sure you tell Sandra what the breed of your dog is.

For the people who own verified pit bulls and verified pit bull mixes, your contest is: "FUN THINGS TO DO WITH YOUR PIT BULL"

We're looking for the cutest funniest pictures of pit bulls you can take. Pit bulls at the park in baby swings, pit bulls in baby carriages, pit bulls in drag, pit bulls with shades on.... the cuter and funnier the better. And sweet pictures - pits with kids, pits with kittens etc.. etc.. A little pit bull walking a big big dog... those kinds of things. Send the picture to - Subject: Fun Pit Bull

This contest is a pre-advance notice. When the contest is posted on the site this weekend we'll be asking for a $2.00 donation to cover the cost of some of the prizes and shipping. So get your pics in for free now! YOU MAY SUBMIT AS MANY PICTURES AS YOU LIKE!!!

The contest will close August 29th, 2005 BSL Ontario D-Day. Please remember that any pictures you send in will become the property of and will be posted on the site. Pictures will be assigned an ID # and your name, location, and dogs name will NOT be posted on the site. The ID# will be given out when the pictures go up on the site. Only the people who own the dog will know the ID# for their dog. We consider all information given to us about the owner and the dog covered under the Canadian Privacy of Information Act and will at no time give out any information to any third party.

The winners of EACH contest will get a gift basket for their dogs full of stuff your baby will love. If you're a dog toy or dog food supplier, please contact us. $2.00 donations go toward the gift basket goodies and toward shipping. Any money that is left over after the contest will be donated evenly to the organizations involved in Band-Aid Coalition. As an additional Bonus for Ontario Entrants, there will be one additional Ontario owner selected to win one hour of free legal advice from Green and Vespry Law Offices ( the lawyers who represented Lily and won.
