Halloween Dog Costume Photo Contest!

So, I wasn't going to do this (on my own, anyway), but I received an email inviting me to host a microcontest as the first leg of a larger contest. For Halloween costumes, of course!

Now, I thought about figuring out a photo op costume for Elka, but ultimately haven't worked anything out. Of course, I have a few "costume" pictures in the wings. More like a seasonal calendar selection:

And really, you guys can do better than this, right? 

The rules:  Phase one: Submit pictures of your best doggie Halloween costume. That's from now (October 21) until November 1.  How to submit? You can either email me the picture, at TheElkaAlmanac AT gmail DOT com, or you can put it up on The Elka Almanac Facebook page, whichever catches your fancy. On November 1, I then have the Herculean task of choosing the winner. My "microwinner" will get a $25 Target gift card. Then, the big contest.

The winner will be submitted to this page on the Dog Fence DIY web site, where the one with the most votes will be the Ultra Mega Grand Prize Winner (Okay, so they just call it the "Grand Prize Winner", I just got a little excited) and win the Grand Prize of a $500 Target gift card. Which is pretty sweet. The Grand Prize phase runs until November 12.

So, snap some pictures and send them my way! Unfortunately, I don't think Elka will be aiding me in the selection process this time around, or at least not in the traditional "random choice" way. She'll be a part of the discussion!

FTC disclosure: As a micro host of this contest, I will receive a $25 Target Gift Card from DogFenceDIY, and also a shot at the Grand Prize.
