Hey all! I’m Melanie from Happy Jax, & I’m entering my adorable little sis & her bbf Chloe (aka her white lab). I just love that you can truly see the love between them in the shot. LOVE this challenge!

I’m #438 at the moment)

My entry is #426! Last minute almost. :) It is of my oldest son (his 14th birthday is today, actually!) with his dog, Riley. He found him in the ditch beside the road when he was a tiny puppy. I think it was love at first sight for both of them! :)

@Ginger – You could enter your image just for fun. To be able to win the photo challenge though you must have an actual animal in the image you enter.

Thanks,

Hi,
I tried a few times and would not work…only when I chose the Iheartfaces thumbnail, then it posted, but now I have the Iheartfaces logo instead of my image…Very frustrating! I am giving up. Why does it have to be sooooo complicated???

What a fun photo challenge! It was hard to pick one of my pet, so I decided to pick what I thought would be his favorite. And any idea why I can never get the rafflecopter thing to show up to enter the giveaway? I have done photo challenges in the past, but can never enter the giveaways (it’s not a super big deal). I’ve tried on both Explorer and Firefox and refreshing a bunch of times, even waiting a long time doesn’t help. Should I contact rafflecopter? Thanks a bunch!

What a great giveaway. This particular challenge was much more difficult for me than photographing a human face – thanks for pushing my limits!

A “backlink” is just a link back to I Heart Faces that needs to be in your blog post or Flickr entry. If you add our button code correctly, that usually takes care of it or you can put http://iheartfaces.com somewhere in your post.

Thanks,

Hi Cecily,
I nearly had a breakdown yesterday trying to figure out how to post a picture. I had the same problem with the “back link”. Since I posted from my blog page, where I had the
choice of Permalink I used that. Still no luck. Then I realized I had to get “the button”
the image on drop down menu on I Photo Faces page. Called “Grab button, or something like that”. When I put this below my picture and then did the Permalink it all worked as it should. I don’t think it should be so hard, but it is. I haven’t entered in past months for the same reason, I just couldn’t figure out how. Use the “linky” and the button and you should be okay.

I’m having the same issue!? I’ve never had problems before but I cannot get my photo to upload to this site now. I tried to pull it directly from my computer and that doesn’t work either. Let me know if you figure out the answer to the backlink issue! Thanks!

Denise you need to go to the right of the page and grab an I heart Faces button link and copy and paste it to where your entry is eg on flickr or your blog, then come back and enter your link to your photo and it should work.

I’m having trouble linking up I get a message after the screen of choosing your “icon” that says “…does not contain a backlink to this. please create a backlink” what does that mean. Thanks.

Jager is our baby… he is such a loving and protective dog. HE still thinks he is a puppy and can sit in my lap. He now drapes across me 😀 He is now 8 yrs old and 85 pounds. For the longest time the UPS guy was afraid of him, but once I introduced them, they have become buds…. The UPS guy will drive out of his way to stop and bring Jager a treat.

Here is my entry. It is the first time I have entered one of these contests http://www.flickr.com/photos/82863215@N08/7734901902/

This is my oldest friend. I got her when I was in fifth grade (13 years ago) and she is still the sweetest, loving dog I have ever owned.
