We're putting our 2013 calendar together right now, and staffers and volunteers representing all 12 months of the year have been photographed with their furry friends. There's only one big decision left to make, and we’re leaving the answer up to you: Who should grace the calendar’s cover?

We've narrowed down the field to four contenders. Check out the photos that are in the running, read a little about their sweet four-legged subjects, and then cast your vote for our 2013 Cover Dog or Cat. The pet whose photo gets the most votes will have his or her face in homes all over America!

The contest is now closed! Check back next year!

would really have liked to see photo's of cats and dogs together for the cover


It is always hard to pick, but I agree there should be dogs and cats together.

Any of these adorable pictures would have been great. I hope the other 3 that don't get on the cover get in the calendar.

Linda Griner

Wish I could have chosen two. Love Buddy but also love the pic of Rocky!


With all the negative publicity about pit bulls, it would be nice to have them featured the calendar, yes, along with a cat or two.

They deserve all the publicity - the breed should be banned. My neighbors pit dug under the fence which I have lined with rock to try to protect myself from them. He dug in by the gate in the middle of the night - when I walked out of the house with my 3 Chinese cresteds, he attacked and killed my 17 pound hairless, toothless defenseless male instantly. Then went for my Puf before I shot him!


I agree 100% with you!:) they should put any or all of the bully breeds in calendars like this bc these types of dogs, esp Pits are the ones who fill the shelters the most.


I agree that it would be nice to have a Pit in here with some cats. There is so many negative issues surrounding this breed right now and it would be nice for people to view that there is a softer side to this breed. Its not the breed that is agressive, its the individual dog. Pits were bred as farm dogs, if they bit a human they were put down to wean out the aggressive temperament. The problem now is that people breed them for looks and their personal reasons. People are ruining this breed and they are amazing dogs to own. Just for the record my friends Pit got attacked by a golden retriever and had to be put down due to the injuries it sustained. Pit Bulls aren't the only dogs that can act out but they are the only attacks that seem to be publicized.

Why not a cover with all four photos? Would be terrific.


Need an outdoor photo of cats. The dogs have the advantage of the pretty background.
