This year marks the fifth anniversary of our annual Delta Dog Photo Contest. Each year the number of participants has grown, with 168 entries and a total 4,623 votes this year! Our participants love to show off the best pups in the Delta and beyond, and rest assured, it’s no easy task (but still a lot of fun) to pick the overall winner. After much consideration, our editing team was thrilled with Rook, a Fox Red British Labrador from Madison who clearly loves retrieving waterfowl. The readers’ choice overall winner, a Cocker spaniel named Dot, strikes a photogenic pose perched on her red Jeep, looking over the fields. Lucky Dot placed first in votes in the Sporting Dog category as well! 

We present Rook and Dot, as well as all the remaining readers’ choice place winners below.  Our deepest thanks to everyone who took the time to submit photos, to vote, and share their beloved dogs with us!
