2013 Friends of Lucky Fiona Calendar

After careful consideration - we're talking hours of agony folks - our judges made their final picks for this year's Friends of Lucky Fiona 2013 Calendar. We'd like to thank everybody that entered and helped us raise $285 when all was said and done for the Dekalb Animal Shelter with their $5 donation submissions. Our judges were perfect in that they picked purely on what they truly loved and thought best represented Lucky Fiona, they had zero information on previous winners, on who's dog was who's or if they were dogs from the same household or Collar of the Month subscribers or first time collar buyers. We think the resulting calendar is incredible and since we had so many favorites in the runner up category we actually had some 8X10 photo collages printed to showcase the top 20 that did not make it onto the calendar. See the shop to order either and we are offering FREE SHIPPING on both products. 

The 2013 Friends of Lucky Fiona Calendar
2013 Cover Dog & Official Blue Belton is Carter - every year we pick a blue belton for the cover in honor of Fiona and Carter and his pile of collars was a unanimous decision. 

January - Daphne, Theodore, Buckley & Lucy 

February - Makley

March - Mary

April - Baxter

May - Teddy

June - Izzy

July - Scout

August - Gemma

September - The Barto Trio - Alex, Addie & Emma

October - Phoenix & Alladin 

November - Guinness
* This was supposed to be Molly England's month for winning our Makeover contest, but sadly her photo was too small of a file to be reproduced on the calendar so we used her brother who was in the top 10 cut to make our printer's deadline. We say it every year folks - only submit large format! We think Guin Guin represents his pack well. Check out our Glossy 8X10 of runner up dogs to see Molly in all her glory. 

December - George

* Make sure Lucky Fiona is represented in the photo! We don't have to see the whole collar, leash, blanket and/or toy, but it needs to be featured somehow in the photograph. 
* HIGH RESOLUTION/LARGE FORMAT PHOTOS only!!! Please understand we need big files in order to reproduce a picture on the calendar. Every year we get fantastic photos that cannot be considered because they are very small files that come out pixelated if reproduced. Be wary of camera phone submissions unless they are shot in large format. 
* Be creative! We love to see what you come up with. Our impartial judges will judge on content and do not care about breed or how many Lucky Fiona collars you own. Keep in mind we like to match photos to months, so if you are interested in your pooch being Mr. February? Submit a snowy shot. How about your dog being Miss July? A swimming photo perhaps? Keep in mind September and October are already filled with previous contest winners, the other months and cover are up for grabs.
