And before nominating yourself or your boss, this is for canines only.

Is there a furry friend in your life whose good looks and smarts should be shared with the nation? There’s a contest on Facebook that could net the lucky pup an iPad Mini (because all dogs should have one, or win one for their owner) and $200 in “dog swag.”

The way it works is simple: Submit a high-resolution photo to with the name of the person doing the submitting, the name of the dog, its breed, and an address and phone number (which could maybe end up on a mailing list later, so keep that in mind). The voting occurs on a Facebook page.

The nationwide contest is sponsored by Louis at 14th, located at 14th and U streets, Northwest, which describes itself as a “new luxury apartment building [with] an ego based on the one and only Louis XIV.” Not surprisingly, the building is pet-friendly.

Clearly Louis is hoping to stack the deck for a DC winner. If nothing else, the dog days of summer are well served by scrolling through the adorable contestants.
