In addition to being featured on the Pet Hair Eraser vacuum packaging, the grand-prize winner receives the vacuum, along with a $10,000 donation to their favorite pet cause.

Throughout the contest, consumers can visit the company website to vote for their favorite pet photo. The winning pet will be chosen based on expression, overall appearance and condition of coat.

Brewster, a Bernese Mountain Dog from Anchorage, Alaska, was the grand-prize winner in 2008 and was featured nationally on the Pet Hair Eraser vacuum packaging. The company said that it received more than 62,000 entries and nearly 7 million page views of pet photos during the 2008 contest.

I checked out this contest (I hope my puppy wins!), and I don't think you can enter by emailing a photo. There's a form you have to fill out to enter.

Good luck everybody! I can't wait to see all the cute pictures!

It would be nice if they let computer dummies like me simply snail mail the photo. Or how about my mom and/or aunt who have never been on a computer. Come on folks, not everyone is a comouter junkie. Give non-computer users an even playing field or this contest(promotion) could blow up in their face. Remember the "NEW COKE"???
