About this challenge

Our pups are there for us, 24/7. Think of all the time you've spent with your pet—for some, it might even be more than the time you spend with friends or family! Our furry friends are always by our side, so we want to hear about the experiences you've lived with your most loyal companion.

The Prompt

Pick a fond memory you have with your pet and tell us all about it. What did you do and why is this something you'll cherish forever?

Whether that's a hike you took together, or the first time they successfully played fetch, or simply them lying by your side late at night when you were studying for finals—every memory is welcome!

The Prizes

  • Grand Prize: $2,500 & 1 large box of Sundays chicken or beef
  • Second Place: $1,000
  • 10 Runners-Up: $100

The Judges

We've partnered with Sundays for Dogs, a brand dedicated to making human-grade dog food easy, for this Challenge because you always want to give your best companion the best food. We can't wait to read all of your favorite memories with your four-legged friends
