3rd Annual Dog Days of Summer Photo Contest Recap

Every dog has its day in the sun, and we have the photos to prove it. In Texas, summer is in full tilt with triple digit temps to boot. If just a mere mention of the weather forecast has you sweating, we have the perfect remedy: sunny pics of some cool pups.

For the third year in a row, we’re lapping up the submissions from our Dog Days of Summer Photo Contest. When we ask pet parents for snaps of fur baby enjoying summertime, they always deliver.


We’ve since narrowed it down to our top ten favorites, plus one set of summer dogs who brought in the most votes and is soon to win our grand prize: a $60 credit to use on any top quality dog products on our website.

Drumroll, please!

Kobo and Kolby Jack stole the hearts of 82 voters and took home 1st place in Muenster’s Dog Days of Summer photo contest!

Here are some fun tales about 4-year-old Kobo and 6-year-old Kolby Jack:

These ranch dogs LOVE the pool during the summer time. When they’re not sunbathing or racing to chew out the squeakers in their fluffy toys, you can find them cuddled up under a blanket, snoring away.

Now, let’s all kick back with a tall glass of lemonade and take in these cuties who are making the dog days of summer a little more bearable and lot more adorable!

1.  “Tummy is full… it’ nap time!”

No need for a pillow, this is sunbathing at its finest.

2. “America! Land of the free, and home of the bacon.”

3. “Annie getting air and cooling off at E.V. Spence Reservoir.”

Sometimes it’s so hot the only way to cool off is to catch some air. Annie’s taking matters into her own paws.

4. “Little “Rúai” of sunshine!”

Little “Rúai” of sunshine knows there’s no better way to beat the heat than setting up a seat in the shallow end and casting your reel. Just don’t forget your SPF (sun protection + fun!)

5. “Happy boat dog!”
