Valentine’s Day Poetry Contest 2011

By The Bark Editors, January 2011, Updated June 2021

Roses are red, Violets are blue. Write an ode to your dog—we’ve got prizes for you!

We know you love your dog, and what better way to express that love than in verse? Enter The Bark’s Puppy Love Poetry Contest on Facebook. Finish the classic doggerel, “Roses are red, Violets are blue,” with a few lines about your canine Valentine as a comment on our wall. We’ll have prizes for our favorites, including Sweet Heart Collar Art from Beantown Handmade (3), a Doodle Dog Tote from Crypton (2), and Valentine’s cards from RiverDog Prints (1).

Multiple entries—and wild creativity—are welcome. The contest ends February 14th 2011 at 11:59 PM PST, so start channeling your inner Shakespeare!
