Yours is fine. I was hoping that people would include some scenery, in addition to their dogs, and your picture has done that.

I am not clear on rule #4:

Even though this is an unofficial contest, by submitting a photo you acknowledge that the photo shall become the property of the Golden Retriever forum. By doing such, you relinquish your rights to prevent the use of the photo, in any way that the forum or contest administrator sees fit. This may include using your photo in printed materials which could be offered for sale, and may benefit the membership and administrator of the Golden Retriever Forum financially. This does not in any way change your rights to use your photo as you see fit, however, we are free to use it in any way we feel might benefit the Golden Retriever Forum, or this contest.

Are you talking about things like putting a dog picture on a coffee cup and selling it here at the forum - or could a picture of one of our dogs wind up on merchandise at Amazon or eBay? Am I correct to assume that the person who took the picture and owns the dog would receive no compensation?

Please be aware, this contest is intended purely as fun. It is not a money making endeavor. Everyone needs to consider that the plans may change six months from now (for instance if members request a coffee mug), and all options are open. If you are uncomfortable with that, then please do not submit a photo.

After what happened to Jo Ellen and Daisy a few years back, even if GRF never does anything with the photos, the rule might help if someone "out there" lifts a photo and starts creating merchandise without permission??? At least I hope it would.

I have no hand in this project at all. I just remember what happened when Daisy and a few other dogs started showing up on tapestry like fabric. I was able to find the photos used posted on a forum.

Yes, but that wasn't your first reaction! I still have the other photos of the other GR's on my computer. I never did delete them for some reason.
