Since the beginning of February, we've been partnering with Dog-Milk.com on a fun photo contest for pups who deserved a new bed. To say the least, we got some great entries.

The submission deadline closed last week and we had the hard job of trying to narrow down all the entries to five finalists. While we wish we could give a bed to every dog, here were our picks for most deserving.

Beto is an adorable pup who likes to go a little "crazy" and tore up his last bed. Looks like he's still working on it.

Digger's human got him this chair and a matching ottoman at a garage sale, but it doesn't look like it's holding up too well anymore.

Page's bed looks more like a pillow than a bed! According to her owner, the bed has holes and is so stinky it  could "kill a cat." Yikes.

A few months ago, Preston got really sick and had accident that ruined his bed. Poor guy looks so sad in his kennel with just a few fleece blankets!

Savannah's crate got taken over by the cat, so in turn she's using the cat's bed - that clearly is too small!

All of these adorable dogs could definitely use a new bed - now we leave it up to you to decide which one will win a Cameo bed from our Artist Collection. Voting closes on Friday, February 25 - Make sure to visit Dog-Milk's facebook page now and vote for your favorite! Good Luck!

This last month, Dog-Milk got a couple of our beds for Lulu (the American Bulldog) and Beans (the Boston Terrier) to try out and review. Now, we're partnering with them again for a fun photo contest give-away! Here are the details, straight from Dog-Milk.com.

Back when I got my P.L.A.Y. beds, I hinted at possibly doing a giveaway. Well, I wasn’t lyin’ — here it is! We’re giving away a medium-sized P.L.A.Y. David Collins-designed black and white Cameo bed, a $149 value!

As you know, I replaced Lulu’s dirty, dingy holey dog bed with a new P.L.A.Y. bed and that’s what we’re going to do for you, too. We’re going to give this bed to the lucky reader with the most pathetic dog bed. Does your dog sleep on the arm of your sofa? In a cardboard box? In the litter box? On an old beanbag? Send us the most disturbing, grossest, yuckiest place your dog sleeps and a sentence or two why he/she deserves a new bed.

More details about the bed: The medium size is great for dogs up to 60 lbs and measures 36″ in diameter x 4.5″ high. It is made of 100% natural cotton covering that is soft, breathable and allergy-free, filled with eco-friendly filler made from recycled plastic bottles, and machine-washable cover. The image is a repeating background with a cameo-style dog head on the top. The sides also feature a scroll detail.

Artist David Collins says about this bed, “I wanted this to be a classy, framed, side-profile silhouette of man’s best friend. With a touch of whimsy, too.”

How to enter: Email a photo of your dog’s current bed to info@dog-milk.com along with 1-3 sentences about the bed and why your dog deserves a new one. Please use the Subject: “P.L.A.Y. Cameo Bed Giveaway Entry”. Please only send one photo — make it a doozie. We will accept entries through February 18, 2011. Voting on Facebook will open on February 21, 2011 and run through February 27, 2011. The winner will be announced on Dog Milk, Dog Milk’s Facebook page, Dog Milk’s Twitter page, and P.L.A.Y.’s Facebook and Twitter on February 28, 2011.

Rules: Entries will be narrowed down to 3-5 by Dog Milk and P.L.A.Y and posted to the Dog Milk Facebook page, where our readers will vote on who deserves to get the bed. Contest is open to US residents only. There is no fee to enter or receive the bed. By entering, you grant permission to Dog Milk and P.L.A.Y to use your photo and description to promote the contest. If you win, you grant Dog Milk and P.L.A.Y permission to use your photo and description in announcements and future promotions.

Make sure to send over your photos! We can't wait to see them. Good luck!
