Ever wonder what your dogs dream about while they spend more than half their lives snoozing? I always joke that Romeo must dream about sleeping because I've never met another dog who enjoys the zZz's as much as he does. This curiosity sparked a great idea!
Last week, we held a super fun contest on Instagram where we challenged our followers to get creative and show us what they think our hunk of a CEO, Romeo, dreams about during his 27 naps per day. I mean, is that even normal? But who am I to judge? If I could sleep 20 hours a day, I would too!
Here's how it worked. I posted a photo of Romeo peacefully snoozing in his bed while cuddled with his Classic Frenchie Faces Fleece Blanket. I then asked our followers to screenshot the photo, use the Instagram Stories tools to creatively illustrate what they believe Romeo dreams about, and share it in their own stories while tagging us (@shopFBL) to see. At the end of the contest, we would pick 1 winner to receive a small blanket of choice from the shop.
Here is the photo I asked people to work with. Doesn't it just melt your heart?
Fun side note: This photo is a result of attempting to do a photo shoot with Romeo to promote new pillows for the shop. Within seconds of sitting in his bed next to a pillow, he plopped down and started snoring before his eyes even fully closed. World's laziest CEO? This guy right here!
Within moments of posting the contest, we started receiving our first submissions. It was so great that our followers were responding! Every submission was creative, unique, and so fun to see.
Food was a common theme. Many also chose to put a crown on Romeo's head, portraying him as some sort of king. I wonder where they got that idea from :D
There were dogs, beaches, dance parties, cheeseburgers, pizza, cheese (duh), a unicorn, and even Meryl Streep!
Take a look for yourself! We've compiled a list of all the creative entries for you to enjoy. Which one is your favorite? Find the WINNER at the bottom.
See what I mean about it being hard to choose a winner?? It was tough, but after reviewing all the beautiful pieces of artwork, this one just stood out the most...
@Princess_Penelope_Frenchie drew the entire dog park, complete with trees, birds chirping, and pups chasing tennis balls. I think I can even see Romeo doing what he does best at dog parks -- hiding in the corner.
Congrats to Princess Penelope for winning this fun contest. When I reached out to get her information, she said it took her about an hour to put together. Now that's dedication! :D
