Calling all Mountain Dogs: Rock/Creek “Dog Days of Summer” Contest

Toki always struck me as more of an “extreme adventure type” rather than a typical urban pooch.  She prefers getting her paws dirty, and is always up for some good old-fashioned rock scrambling.  So it was with much excitement that we read the recent announcement about the Rock/Creek Outfitters and Five Ten second annual “Dog Days of Summer” photo contest.

For the month of July, you can post your pup’s photo on the Rock/Creek Facebook wall for a chance for your dog to become the face of the Five Ten Dog Days of Summer sale in August.  Your photo will be featured on the home pages of Rock/Creek and Five Ten, plus you’ll get a free pair of climbing shoes from Five Ten!  You can read all the nitty gritty details about the contest here.

In case you’re wondering who the heck is Five Ten, they’re a sports shoe company that specializes in making climbing shoes with very sticky rubber.  And Rock/Creek is an independent specialty outdoor retailer based in Chattanooga, Tennessee.  (They also happen to have a selection of choice pet gear for the outdoor dog.)

Good Luck – and we’ll be looking for you on the Rock/Creek Facebook page!

    Truly breathtaking photos! Toki looks at home with the snowy mountains in the background. Happy Wednesday!

      Thanks – she is definitely a snow dog, so she’s right at home in the mountains. I posted more of our mountain camping photos on my blog last week. The high Sierras were amazing!

    I read your blog every now and then, but today is the first time I believe I’ve commented. I came here from BlogPaws Blog Hop and just wanted to say hi. I love following all the adventures of Toki!

      She loves to jump up on boulders to survey the scenery. And I love in the first photo how it kind of looks like Toki is walking right out of the mountains. . .

    Beautiful pictures! And what a cool contest – I’ll have to make sure my little brother knows. He’s the mountain dog. Me, I prefer mud puddles!

    • furfilled says:

      Thanks! Let me know if you post on Rock Creek’s wall and I’ll vote for ya. I dropped by your blog and enjoyed meeting snotface, Twiggy and the crew!

  5. You should absolutely consider submitting Toki’s photo in the ‘Dog Days of Summer’ contest. These pictures are stunning. Toki is such a beauty standing against the backdrop of a mountainous landscape!

  6. Toki set against those stunning mountains makes me wish Pugs were built for adventure rather than lap snugglings.
