Dog Days of Summer ActiveRain Challenge!

 

Summer is winding down and it's kind of hard to believe it's August 1st already! Where does the time go?  I don't know! Do you! Anyway...back to the challenge after a bit of pondering thanks to Michael Jacobs!

 

For years, Gary and I have dreamed up new and different ideas/themes for events and/or campaign's to  to share with our clients and sphere of influence.  Last year we hosted our 1st annual Dog Days of Summer Wine Tasting!  Where this idea came from, I don't know. But once we started researching ideas lat summer we were surprised and delighted that it's quite a popular wine tasting event held all over the country in August. Who knew!

 

Dog Days of Summer ActiveRain Challenge!

 

Your challenge is to dream up your own version of a Dog Days of Summer event and/or campaign for your sphere of influence. It can be as simple, or as complicated as you like. Your choice! And BTW if your event or campaign doesn't include dogs that's just fine! The 'point' is to come up with something new and innovative or something that has worked well for you in the past, during the month of August!

 

Dog Days of Summer Challenge rules!

 

1. Write 1 post explaining your Dog Days of Summer idea with at least 300 words and 3 photos.

 

2. Post a link to your Dog Days of Summer post HERE on this original contest post.

 

3. All Dog Days of Summer participants will receive 500 points and lots of licks from their fur babies or a friends pup.  Now that's a bonus!!  LOL

 

4. Dog Day of Summer challenge starts August 1st and End August 31st 12:00 Pacific Time

 

 Here's a copy of our very successful Dog Days of Summer Wine Tasting!

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 I can't believe how timely this was. Here's my contribution albeit I spend the better part of this moring trying to figure out how to keep all the fonts the right size and the photos aligned. LOL! Hope you enjoy  it as much as I did.

Yes we get dog days here, and it's usually August and Sept, so I'm dreading what this year will bring since it seems like we had that in July.

Hi Again Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 so write a story of what your dog days are like in HI.  That would be interesting to find out.  Our dog days here in AZ are full of monsoon season storms and higher humidity for a month or so.  The nice part it's cloudy more often and that seems to cool things down.

This was such a clever and creative idea.   No wonder it took off like it did!   I will have to ponder this one a bit and see what I come up with.   It has really been a busy summer!

Have you heard about this 6 legged dog? ROO is adorable and very loyal.  Have not worked like a dog this summer. Enjoying the mild weather here this summer.  Cheers Sam“We absolutely love Roo to pieces. She’s is just a normal dog to us - just with a couple of extra bits,” proud mom Lauren Salmon said.
