Three Hartford/New Haven dogs are begging local residents to get to the internet and cast their votes to help them win an election 100 years in the making! Brandy from Bridgeport, Marley Boy from Shelton and Polly from Deep River are looking for votes in hopes of being named the first-ever Milk-Bone® SpokesDog. During the past 9 months, thousands of pet parents from across the country have entered their pet in the Make a Milk-Bone® Moment™ contest, but there can only be one winner. One hundred finalists were chosen including Brandy, Marley Boy and Polly. America will decide which four-legged friend deserves to be the official face of Milk-Bone® by voting at www.Milk-Bone.com between now and November 18, 2008.
In celebration of 100 years, Milk-Bone® went looking for pictures and videos that captured those irreplaceable, special times that you have with your best friend. The top 100 Milk-Bone® Moments™ are moments of joy that strengthen the bond between a pet and his or her pet parent. The 100 finalists were chosen based on a picture/video entry along with the essay they entered in the Make a Milk-Bone® Moment™ contest.
This is one election where multiple votes are encouraged, as www.Milk-Bone.com visitors can cast one vote per day until November 18. The dog featured in the winning Milk-Bone® Moments™ will receive a $100,000 contract to serve as the Milk-Bone® Spokesdog for the next year. The winning Milk-Bone® Moment™ will be announced in January 2009. The SpokesDog will also have his or her picture featured on a Milk-Bone® box and will be used in the brand’s marketing campaigns throughout the year. The 99 runners up will receive a digital camera.
