Caption This: Pup Ready for a Close-up

This dog loves the camera. What's it thinking?

Patch readers, you're up!

We need your wit, creativity and animal psychic abilities to craft the perfect caption for the next edition of our pet photo caption challenge! 

What's this dog thinking, as it stares straight into the camera?

Suggest your caption in the Comments section below. Comments will close at 9 p.m. Wednesday, April 30. The winner will be announced Thursday, May 1. 

The author of the winning caption and pet owner can find a Patch-branded version of the photo, with the caption inserted included in the next week's edition.

Have a photo you'd like captioned in future editions? Add it to our collection and your pet will be featured in weeks to come!


  1. Any animal will do. Dogs, cats, horses, lizards, birds, guinea pigs—you name it, we'll take it.
  2. Limit of 4 photos per person (or family), per month. 
  3. Submission is ongoing. Post your photos whenever you have them; the more photos, the better.

tom, do you think that these useless pieces of shit that don't respect themselves or anything human could care for an animal? it is sad.

maybe if I look really cute they won't mind the little gift I left on the bedspread.
