We’re so excited to have a brand new contest for our pet-loving readers – we’re giving away a Sleepypod!

To enter:
Send a photo of your pet’s ugly, gross, disgusting, hideous, gnarly pet bed OR the pathetic place your pet currently uses as a bed. Both cat and dog owners are welcome to enter. We want to see the yuckiest!

Photos should be emailed to [email protected] with subject line “Sleepypod Contest”. Please include your name and contact information, the type of pet you have and your pet’s name.

Design Milk, along with Moderncat and Mod-Dog will narrow the entries down to a select few. Readers of all three blogs will then vote on Design Milk to determine the First and Second Place winners. The winner will be announced in a future post on Design Milk.

Please note: Sleepypods are designed for pets 15 lbs and under. We apologize, but large dogs are excluded from the contest due to this restriction. Maybe we will have another contest just for large dogs. :)

First Place winner: Your choice of one Sleepypod or Sleepypod mini in the color you prefer (examples pictured above; subject to availability).

The Second Place winner will receive a print courtesy of Mod-Dog (examples below):

Sleepypod is a pet carrier with a removable top so that it can easily be used as a pet bed (view demo). The goals of Sleepypod are functionality and comfort: they are designed to reduce stress on your pet when on-the-go. Learn more at sleepypod.com.

Contest begins on October 1, 2008 and ends on October 31, 2008. Voting will then occur. The winner will be announced no later than November 30th, 2008.

One entry per pet. If you have 5 pets per household that meet the criteria, then you can enter 5 times (once for each pet).

Once you submit your photo, you agree that it may be used by Design Milk, Sleepypod, Moderncat, and Mod-Dog for promotional purposes.

Special thanks to Sleepypod, Moderncat, and Mod-Dog for making this exciting contest happen!
