The winners of this year’s photo contest created unforgettable images by placing their models in vivid landscapes. A red barn, for example, provides a perfect backdrop to show the range of Newfoundland colors. Seagrass complements the straight, coarse coat of a tiny brown dog. A German Shorthaired Pointer stands on a rock, staring out at a secluded lake. A Glen of Imaal Terrier dashes through a snow tunnel, while a Redbone Coonhound snoozes on a weathered wooden porch. These images just highlight the reality about life with dogs. No matter what the scene or time of day, a canine presence makes everything just a little brighter and more interesting.
