Not enough posts to be eligible yet, but I couldn't resist posting Finnegan's sweet puppy bitey-face!

Here's the good news...you can enter a photo this month because it's a new calendar year.
GRF Photo Contest Rule # 6: Only one photo per user/dog per month. In order to allow for diversity, only one win will be allowed per calendar year per forum member and/or dog.

Thanks for clarifying. I thought it was one year from the month you won. I just read the rules for the first time-- "When all else fails read the directions", as they say ;-) My Goofy Abby collage is still not eligible because of the "no editing" rule. But that's ok. I'll be ready for the big competitive push next month - going after those lucrative prizes !

Does the no editing rule make my Duke picture ineligible?

I think rules were meant to be stretched at times (ok, not with middle school students who I used to teach! They LIVE for stretching rules! Give an inch and they take a mile!) ... or reconsidered on occasion. There is also a rule that no people or other pets can be in photos which is ..???
Adding: Ivyacres - not meaning to cause any problems. I so appreciate your managing the photo contest because it's fun!

This is a fun thread that many of us enjoy so when 1st Gold13 needed to take a break I volunteered. He was extremely helpful getting me up to speed.
As for the rules, I think a collage is a little too much editing, I think the bit of text should be ok. This is a friendly little competition, we're not really giving away any of those lucrative prizes that fourlakes referred to. lol.
I hope we can use the spirit of the rules, I'll check just to be sure.

Let me just add in here real quickly that the reason we prefer no editing at all and no text or collages is we're trying to keep this simple so that anyone can add a simple photograph of whatever the topic is for the months to this post. We've always felt it's not fair to start adding things to a picture that other people may not be able to do or know how to do so in that case it was decided to just have strictly 1 Photo per member posted and just leave it strictly at just a photo. I hope this better explains why we just limited it to just a photo only with no editing. As stated before we want to keep this as a friendly contest of are golden retrievers and the topic that was picked. Thanks

I LOVE looking through all these photos!

I had a hard time picking a photo and then came across this one. It seems as though our youngest cat, Frankie (also known as Frankie-Monster), always ends up in the background of photos of Storm and she is catching on.

Oops, my mistake. Thanks to Rob's GRs for clearing this up for us.
