    The 'Dog Photographer Of The Year' Contest Announced Its Winners, And They're Amazing
    Jun 21 2017, 4:20 PM


    The "Dog Photographer Of The Year" competition, an annual contest organized by the UK-based animal welfare organization the Kennel Club, has announced its winners, and unsurprisingly the winning photos are chock full of very good dogs.

    We know why you're here, so without further ado, here are the winners.

    Maria Davison Ramos won the Man's Best Friend category — and took first prize overall — with this photo of Yzma the rescue.

    Honestly, we could probably go on forever. Every last one of these photos is just so cute. But we've reached the end of our leash. See all the winners and the runners-up for yourself at the contest's website.

    IMG_3842.JPG Here's a shot of one of my "killers" from the dog beach yesterday. Had to deal with the sand vomits and $hits last night. Her name is Daizy and she's feeling much better today.
