I am wondering about some of the same questions asked previously with some additions.

1. Can the puppy be an adult
2. How is the owner notified if chosen as a winner or honorable
3. Will the owner receive a copy of the issue the picture is presented in, even if they do not subscribe to the magazine at the time of
4. How do I enter my picture for next year,

Is it okay if a person is in the picture along with the dog, or should I cut it out or would you do it?
