Charlotte, NC— Cooper, a 2-year-old brown male boxer, has been chosen as winner of Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department’s 2012 Top Dog Photo Contest. The photo is a close-up of Cooper as he stares directly into the camera. Cooper is owned by Suzanne Long of Concord.

The winning photo received more than 4,000 votes during the online voting period (April 2 - 16) on parkandrec.com. The other two finalists were  Nala, a 3-year old Blue Tick Walker mix, and McGrady, a 5-year old Australian Shepherd. The contest is a preliminary to the Pedigree® Bark in the Park Dog Festival presented by Food Lion. This is a signature event of Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department on Saturday, April 28, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Rural Hill, 4431 Neck Road, Huntersville, NC.

The Top Dog and master will be the grand marshals of the Pooch Parade at Bark in the Park and will receive a pet portrait by Tianna Fisher, a year’s supply of dog food, plus the dog will be poster dog for next year’s festival logo. Bark in the Park is “for dogs and the people they own!”
