Local resident a finalist in dog park contest — help her win, vote now

Leanne Shih and Ninja

Carmel Valley resident Leanne Shih is a finalist in the 2012 Beneful Dream Dog Park Contest.

Shih submitted an essay explaining how a $500,000 dog park makeover could benefit the community and enhance her relationship with her dog Ninja. Out of more than 800 entries, 12 finalists were selected.

“My ultimate dog park is a place which the entire family can enjoy. Ninja does not want to choose between hanging out with his human family and his furry friends. He wants everyone to join in the fun,” Shih wrote.

Shih has the opportunity to win $10,000 cash and a year’s supply of pet food.  If chosen, her entry would inspire a $500,000 dog park makeover in the San Diego area.

The public vote is worth 20 percent of the decision and you can vote once a day through Nov. 7.
