Get Ready for the “Pup of the Pines” Photo Contest

Hey pet lovers! Is your four-legged friend dog-gone cute? Would he or she get two paws up for its tail-wagging looks and personality? Are you looking to show off ‘pooch-tastic’ photos of your canine? Then you are barking up the right pine tree!

The Ocean Pines Association urges ‘pup-arazzi’ pet parents to enter their furry friend/s in the 3rd Annual “Pup of the Pines” photo contest, which is sponsored by the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department. The contest runs Aug.14 -Oct.20.

The winner of the contest will be named the “2018 Pup of the Pines” and will receive a free 2018 Ocean Pines Dog Park registration. The pup will also be the official face of the dog park and will be featured in the Ocean Pines Activity Guide and other postings throughout the year.

The top eight entries will be on display at the Ocean Pines Halloween celebration on Saturday, October 28 from 1-4 pm in White Horse Park. Attendees at the event will be able to vote for their favorite. The winner will be announced at the Hometown Christmas Tree Lighting on Saturday, November 25.

The entry fee is $5 per dog. Money raised from the contest will be used for upgrades and improvements to the dog park. To enter the contest, call (410) 641-7052.

Official entry forms are available at the Ocean Pines Community Center at 235 Ocean Parkway, online at or on the Recreation and Parks Department’s Facebook page.
