The following are the 12 winning photos from That Mutt's calendar contest. I listed the dogs' names and potential breed mixes next to their photos, but keep in mind most of the owners don't know their dogs' actual breeds. Like many of us, they just have to guess.
I've also listed the top two runner-ups. If I need an additional photo or a replacement photo, the runner-ups will be chosen and of course notified.
Thank you to everyone who entered and voted in the contest. Each of the 12 winners will receive five free calendars, which will be shipped on or before Dec. 1, 2013. Additional calendars are available for pre-order. Ordering information here.
