Boston's Rule

2008 BOSTON BUDDIES CALENDAR CONTEST

BOSTON BUDDIES 2008 CALENDAR CONTEST!
IT IS TIME TO START SUBMITTING YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS!  

Post your entries in the community - make them no larger than 500x500,
but keep the original size because for printing quality, bigger is better.

Make sure the subject line says
BOSTON BUDDIES CALENDAR CONTEST ENTRY
or something similar - in caps PLEASE.

Only ONE ENTRY PER MONTH PER DOGGER is allowed and you MUST SPECIFY WHICH MONTH. 
Each dogger is only allowed to be featured for one month... but don't let that stop you from entering for every month!!!
EVERY ENTRY will be in the calendar!!!

   

The "most popular" will be the
big photo featured in the center.

All other entries for that month
will surround it, creating a frame.

The "most popular" will be featured
here on our community background
for the entire 2008 year.

The ENTRY DEADLINE is Sunday, October 14th at 11:59pm CST.

Verification of entries will begin sometime on Wednesday, October 17th and end on Friday, October 19th at 11:59pm CST.

VOTING WILL BEGIN on Sunday, October 21st at 11:59pm CST.
VOTING WILL END on Sunday October 28th at 11:59pm CST.

IF we have a tie we will hold a tie breaker beginning on Monday, October 29th at 11:59pm CST and ending on Wednesday, October 30th at 11:59pm CST.  A tie means either two entries have the same number of votes for one month OR one or more doggies have been selected for more than one month.  If we have any months with a tie in the number of votes AND any of those doggers also have the most votes (or ties) in more than one month, the tie breakers will be held separate, with the voting for the number of votes being first.  All voting for these stages will last only 24 hours.

CALENDARS WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ORDER SOME TIME IN THE FIRST WEEK OF NOVEMBER.

  • Voting will be done using an LJ poll, and everyone can follow the progress because the poll will be viewable by all.
  • We will be using our Cafe Press store... calendars will be sold AT COST unless you would like a customized cover - with any photo(s) and/or text on the cover.  For those we will add $3 to go towards the annual fee required to post more than one calendar.  Not to be complicated, but to be completely fair, IF we raise more than the annual fee with the $3 surcharge on those orders, will be divide the extra money between all personalized calendars and you will have that amount as a credit for next years order.
  • Screen shots will be taken at the end of voting just in case people vote late or if anyone questions anything.
  • This is completely for fun.  We are not out to make a profit.  Yes it would be great to charge for each entry and make the calendars ourselves and donate all profits to a rescue group... but that is not what we are here for.  Rescue groups do their own calendars for that purpose and we encourage everyone to find their local group and support them.  We do this calendar because we are one big family and we LOVE to see each other's babies on our walls!!!

Flying Questions.. Is he too big?? Pictures

Hi everyone. My boyfriend and I are planning to go to FL in November for 14 days. When we leave we would normally have the company I work for watch the dogs.

They are called The Pet Staff www.thepetstaff.com

(incase anyone is interested)

But it would be about $1300 to do that anddddd I think 14 days is a long time to leave them without us. So flying the dogs would actually be cheaper. We have two labs who would go in the cargo area and then Hogwarts who I would want to go in the cabin with us.

We are flying American airlines and and it says the animal has to be 20 pounds or under. He is 20!

Then it says:

Pet Carrier Guidelines
The maximum size for cabin pet carriers is 23" long x 13" wide x 9" high. Animals must be able to stand up, turn around and lay down in a natural position in the kennel.


I measured Hog and he was 15 inches High and 20 inches long... So he is not going to fit in a carrier that small am I right? Also when I looked at Petsmarts.com airline bags they were a lot bigger than those dimensions...

I know some of you have flown with your boston in the cabin so I know it's not impossible but are your bostons just really small? I really really really really don't want to put him in the cargo!!

Thanks for reading.
