a. Silliest – Is the entry showing funny dog behaviour that is outside of day-to-day activities? (ie. Particularly excited about dinner or spinning because they’re happy NOT forced human interaction, i.e. being dressed up) (scored out of 5).
b. Muckiest – Is the entry dirty from play? (ie. Muddy from rolling around in puddles or sandy from a day at the beach NOT matted from uncleanliness or signs of mistreatment) (scored out of 5).
c. Most Mischievous – Is the entry showing playful behaviour that could be perceived as cheeky? (ie. Stealing an extra treat or running away with a toy NOT showing possessive/aggressive behaviour from the dog) (scored out of 5).
The 3 entries with the highest 3 scores after judging will be deemed the provisional winners.

Reserve winners may have less time to respond.
