Amazing dog

Just about everyone who has a pup thinks he/she is the most fabulous canine ever, and now you have an opportunity to prove it. Facebook Watch and The Dodo, which specializes in heart-warming animal videos, partnered to create an interactive competition series to find the “World’s Most Amazing Dog,” and 3 Ball Entertainment will produce it, TheWrap.com reports (bit.ly/amzdawg). The images shown are courtesy of Facebook.

Auditions are already open, and Facebook users’ dogs from more than 35 countries are in the running. Go to the mobile website m.fb.me/MostAmazingDog, and click on “Follow” to be able to upload auditions and vote for your favorites (the nonmobile site is www.fb.me/MostAmazingDog). Sorry, video submissions may only be made by phone.

If you need a little incentive, Facebook donates $1 (up to $1 million) to an animal charity for each video submission, and the dogs who get the most votes will compete for a $100,000 prize. So what’s stopping you? As Facebook insists, “It’s so easy, a dog could do it.”
