top dogstop dogsHorsepeople love their dogs too! Rainbow's search for the next Top Dog Model is going on now! There was an overwhelming response to the Top Dog Model photo shoot (more than 100 pups showed up for their photo sessions with professional photographer Catherine Reese last month). The photos of all the handsome canines will be available soon on Catherine's website, and the Rainbow staff will have the challenge of picking 10 Finalists from each store, then the voting begins! View the photos and vote on Catherine Reese Fine Art Photography Facebook page (there will be plenty of links on the Rainbow Facebook page too!) and the top three dogs from each store will have their pictures on the labels of Rainbow's Natural Nuggets Dog Treats! Join in the fun on Facebook. Vote by liking the photos – and get your friends involved too!
