The first 2012 Orvis Cover Dog Photo Contest ended last month. The winning photos will appear on catalog covers throughout the year, but there are also a bunch of honorable mentions. You may recall that each vote for one of the photos in the contest translated to a $1 donation to the Morris Animal Foundation’s research into canine-cancer. The photo above, of a Maltopoo (Maltese + poodle) named Boschie, raised $5,005! Below are the second- and third-highest amounts raised by contest entries, and you’ll see that older dogs really came through.

The other category for honorable mentions is for the number of unique voters. Ti, the Remarkable Weim received votes from 53 different people. Way to go!

Thanks to everyone who contributed to making this contest a huge success, and remember that the second 2012 contest is already underway. Enter a photo of your dog, go vote for some favorites, or do both.
