Bend’s reputation as a dog friendly town is one that’s been well earned. By some accounts Bend has a per capita dog population that rivals any other town in the country. We’re home to several dog-related businesses and an active pro-dog lobbying group.
We’re taking out cue from all that puppy love and asking dog owners to nominate their dogs as potential models for an upcoming project in the Source. “Winning” dogs will take part in a photo shoot and have their mugs plastered on one of our biggest issues of the year. We’re looking for dogs with a lot of personality that represent Bend’s varied population. We just ask that you nominate dogs that are friendly and would be comfortable with things like grooming and playing dress up. To nominate your pooch for this project email email@example.com. Send us a couple photos your four-legged pal and a couple of lines about why he or she should be a Source mascot.
