Last weekend, we held our 10th Annual Valentine's Day Kissing Contest at the Planet Dog Retail Store. Even though we had to postpone from our original date, due to another snow storm, we had a GREAT turn out.
We had 16 enthusiatic competitors enter the kissing contest. The rules are simple - one owner, one dog and one loooong sloppy kiss. The contestants are timed and the pair with the longest sustained kiss, is the winner!
Besides the glory and bragging rights, the winner also receives a $75 gift certificate to the Planet Dog Retail store.
The event is always competitive and fun. This year's big winners were Linda and Beau, from Saco. This pair has actually won 5 times now! There is a rumor circulating though, that Linda and Beau may be retiring to give other smoochers a better chance next year. We will see!
All proceeds from the event were donated to the Planet Dog Foundation, which awards grants to programs that train, place and support working dogs helping people in need.
