Puppies USA 2012 Photo Contest

Have your puppy featured on the pages of Puppies USA

Best Friends Forever
Puppies often bond with other pets, and these friendships can last a lifetime. Snap a photo of your puppy interacting with his BFF. The friend can be another dog, a cat, or any other pet — no people please. 

Laugh Out Loud
Send your best photo of your puppy acting funny or silly, doing one of these things that makes you smile or laugh.
