Users of these sites will be able to Like and React as per the sites’ functionality. A count of likes and other reactions (not comments) will be taken and added together between the two sites for each picture (as each picture will be posted on both sites, a count will be taken for reactions to the picture on each site and both counts will be added together) and the pictures with the most likes and reactions will be the winning pictures, making The Entrants who submitted them The Winners.

Should more than twenty (20) pictures be submitted by eligible persons, a board made up of staff of Little Dog’s Pawstry Shoppe will pick twenty (20) Entrants to move forward in The Sweepstakes. 

Should a tie occur, Entrants in the tie will be randomly assigned a number between 1 and 1000 by the random number generator at An additional random number will then be generated via the same method, and the Entrant in the tie with the closest randomly assigned number will be the next winner. This process will repeat until the tie is resolved, or there are 5 Winners.
