It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Time to finally announce the winners of the fabdog® Holiday Card Contest for 2018! The rules this year were to share your fur-friendly family holiday photo with fabdog® Dog PJs and matching fabdog® Human PJs. Let’s just say that we were not disappointed…

After receiving a record number of submissions, we have to say that we were truly blown away by all of the utterly amazing fur-friendly family photos of families in their matching PJs! The creativity and originality in this year’s submissions were next level. It was nearly impossible to pick a winner.

For the first time ever, we have a TIE for 3rd place! And we’ve selected several contestants as honorable mentions that will each receive a $10 gift card to fabdog.com. Cheers to all who entered and donned their adorable PJs both canine and human – the most rewarding part of our job is seeing the happiness our products bring to you and your families!

Check out all of the runners-up and honorable mentions from this year’s holiday card contest entries below before the big reveal of this year’s official winners and you’ll see very quickly why it was SO hard for us to select a winner!

If you just can’t wait for the big reveal, you can scroll to the bottom to see this year’s winning holiday cards…

Congratulations are in order for Kathryn Joerger and family! Their photos embodied everything that the holiday spirit is about in their fabulous fur-friendly family photoshoot. The Joerger Family went above and beyond in their Holiday Card and won the hearts of all the contest judges. They are proof that the bond between dog and owner is that of family.

As a prize, The Joerger Family will be receiving a $100 Amex Gift Card to splurge on themselves for the holidays! Well-deserved.

Thank you and congrats to all of our contestants for their amazingly festive showing!
