The winning image of The Gleaner’s second annual Pet Photo Contest is of Dodge, pictured here enjoying a relaxing afternoon in the shade with his “gals” in Ormstown. Photographed by Anika Schachtler, this nicely composed shot features her 12-year-old Bernese Mountain dog, who, she says, “still enjoys sprinting around, but spends most of his time in the shade and wherever he can find treats.”

 

42 photographs of Valley pets were submitted to the contest in celebration of National Pet Day, coming on April 11. The pet owners who snapped the first-, second- and third-place pictures will receive gift certificates valid at any of the pet-related advertisers who participated in the contest.

The second-place photograph features Magic, an eight-year-old rescue out enjoying a car ride. The photograph was submitted by Elise Ménard, who took Magic in last summer. “He is loving his new life and we thoroughly enjoy this new member of our family.”

This image of Dusty, a five-year-old male ginger, was selected for third place. The artfully lit photograph was taken by Terry Sylvester.

 

The judges couldn’t resist this picture of seven-year-old ginger, Prince Harry II, photographed in all his glory by owner Lucille Morin.
