Pucker Up, Las Vegas Dogs! America's Smoochiest Pooch Competition is Coming to Town
Published on Thu, Jan 31, 2013 (12:44 p.m.)Phoenix, AZ. (February 1, 2013) – Want to find out if you have America's Most Kissable Dog? Bring Fido to the Cashman Center on Las Vegas Boulevard on Saturday, February 9th, where Top Dog Eileen Proctor is bringing the "America's Smoochiest Pooch" competition at the Vegas Pet Expo - the second stop along the 2013 year-long national road tour. Pet owners can enter the competition by bringing their dog to the expo between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm where they’ll have an official "kissing" photograph taken of their dog.
Admission to the Pet Expo event is free; there is a $5 fee to enter the contest and participants receive a $5 voucher towards any PetzLife oral care product purchased at the expo. Proctor has developed the year-long road tour to raise awareness for animal rescue and welfare organizations, and honor the deep relationship between pets and their owners. Therefore, a portion of the $5 entry fee goes directly to benefit a local Las Vegas animal welfare or rescue organization.
The dog with the most online votes at the end of a 30-day voting period will be crowned the the K-9 Kissing King or Queen for that location, win a prize package provided by sponsor PetzLife and automatically be entered into the national competition for a chance to be named “America’s Smoochiest Pooch.” For additional information about how the competition works, click here,
While they will not be entered into the official contest, animal lovers across the nation can also participate in the fur-filled fun - without going to the expo - by uploading pictures of themselves kissing their dog(s) on Facebook at @AmericasSmoochiestPooch, or by tagging an Instagram photo with #kissingdogs.
The Vegas Pet Expo will be held at the Cashman Center located at 850 Las Vegas Boulevard North, Las Vegas, NV 89101. Get directions and dog attendee requirements at http://www.vegaspetexpo.com/.
