Does Your Dog Have the Best Roommate in You?
Tell it to a camera for the chance to win a year rent-free
Are you such a good roommate to your dog that you deserve $10,000?

The folks at Apartments.com are back with their third annual Roommate of the Year Contest. It’s not our contest but how can I pass up a chance to see a loyal Bark reader and his or her faithful co-pilot(s) reaping the benefits of a full rent-free year—or $10,000 in cash?! That’s a lot of kibble. And so far, there aren’t that many entries, especially in the pet category.

So think of all of the ways that you are your dog’s dream roommate—long walks (even in the pouring  rain), agility camp, home-baked treats, canine massage, off-leash play dates, etc. Then, tell it to the video camera. (Check out Kathryn M. and Charlie's story, a finalist from last year.) Even if you don’t clinch the title, your story of outstanding dog care might inspire others to raise their game.

Submit your video to Apartments.com’s Roommate of the Year Contest by noon, June 13, 2011 in “The Purr-fect Pet Owner” category. We’d love a preview, if you want to share your entry with us, send it to webeditor@thebark.com. Maybe we’ll post it here. Good luck.
