2012 Cover Model Contest Finalists!
Big round of applause for everyone who entered the 2012 Cover Model Contest. We had 555 dogs enter the contest this year and we loved meeting each and every one of them. To see the full gallery of all contestants visit www.lauraolsen.com and click on the Model Contest image.
Each year, it is so difficult to narrow our contestants down to the top finalists. And this year was no different. In fact, this year it felt even more challening because so many of the dogs looked fantastic against our cover backdrop. I've already heard from many people claiming, "it looks JUST like my dog is really on the cover!"
But in the end, we had to narrow it down. Due to the high number of model perfect dogs this year, we chose a top 30 instead of a Top 25. It's up the YOU the general public to choose this year's winner.
Good luck to all the Top 30 Finalists!
