If your pooch ought to be in pictures, enter your furry friend in the 2nd Annual “Pup of the Pines” photo contest, sponsored by the Ocean Pines Recreation and Parks Department. The contest runs Aug.15-Oct.15.
The winner of the contest will be named the “2017 Pup of the Pines” and will receive a free 2017 Ocean Pines Dog Park registration. The pup will also be the official face of the dog park and will be featured in the Ocean Pines Activity Guide and other postings throughout the year.
