Best Derby Dogs Photo Contest
Here at Derbylife, we’re very pro-dog. Em Dash got a puppy in October, and Mercy Less just adopted a puppy in the last week! We’ve met a lot of great derby dogs in our day, and this is a fun contest meant to celebrate all the fabulous dogs of derby. (Don’t worry, cat lovers, we’ll get to you next!)
We’ve gotten a ton of submissions, and have barely been able to keep up with them all, so we’ve closed submissions. We’ll get the voting up within the next week. Check back for voting later!
To start us off, here’s one of Em Dash and Schlitz of Gotham Girls Roller Derby:
And this is Mercy Less with new puppy, Paco!
