Monument Dogs Photo Contest
Picture proof positive that Kilroy, Tank, Buster and Rex were here

Summer travel season is in full air-conditioned swing, and for many of us that means driving to monuments around this fine country, from Mount Rushmore in South Dakota to a 13-foot-tall, 9,000-pound Booming Prairie Chicken in Rothsay, Minnesota. We pack, we drive, we stop for ice cream, we keep driving, we arrive, we exclaim and we click. And that click is the all-important proof WE WERE HERE! Often in the frame, keeping it real, is the adorable mug of a dear four-footed co-pilot.

These are photos we want to see and share. Your dog in full canine tourist mode—looking patriotic at the base of the Washington Monument or perhaps performing druidic rites at Carhenge in Alliance, Arkansas (yes, a Stonehenge made of cars).

► We’re so excited to see the evidence of your journeys, we’ve made it a contest. Upload your photo and enter to win a Bark goodie bag full of delectable and co-pilot products. (Contest closes August 5.)

7/18/11 UPDATE: We’ve been asked if National Parks count for this contest. So let’s be clear. We’re pretty wide open about this. While we love a certifiable monument, like the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, we want to see pups at all manner of roadside attractions (giant teakettle, anyone?) and memorable spots.
