Meet Mae... the winner of our 2017 Nashville Cover Dog Search! Something about Mae's sweet smile, beautiful eyes and whiskery face just stole our hearts this year!
Mae's mom, Kiley Pritchard, saw Mae's adorable photo listed with an animal shelter a few years ago, and knew she had to adopt her. A DNA test revealed that Mae is a mix of Golden Retriever, Labrador Retriever and Standard Poodle. Kiley and Mae moved to Nashville in October, and they are thrilled to be welcomed into the Nashville pet community with a big win!
Last week, our friends at Safari Pet Resort gifted Mae with a special Cover Dog Spa Day, followed by lounging poolside until it was time for her cover shoot.
We met Mae and Kiley in Berry Hill for a fabulously fun shoot, and really enjoyed getting to know this sweet, laid-back pup as she posed like a total pro for our camera. Our photographer, Michelle Conner, got the most beautiful cover shot, and we cannot wait to share it!
Thanks to everyone who entered our 2017 Nashville Cover Dog Search and made our job so impossible (149 adorable dogs!), and to all of the sponsors and to Team Paw for making it possible. And don't forget... EVERY dog gets a headshot in the August issue... so if your pup was in the contest, be sure to grab a copy when it hits stands!
