What makes a model pet?

Maybe she’s the smartest in town. Maybe he’s the snuggliest. Maybe dear old Fluffy has done some heroic things in the past, like call 911 while you were choking on a chicken bone. Whatever the reason, we want to hear what makes your creature a model pet.

How does it work?

Along with some basic contact informatin, submit a photo of your pet (in jpeg format), along with an essay of 300 words or less telling us why your pet is the Model Pet of DFW. Judges will vote on the winners in three categories: dog, cat and "alterna-pet." To start your entry, click on the "Submission" tab above.

When is the deadline?

The deadline for entries is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug 14.
