Pee. S. Remember to send your Blogville Summer Dance photos to submissions@pawprovince.com by July 8th! Grab your date, buddy up with some friends, go solo and wing it...just make sure to get unedited, clear photos to me of you and whoever is going with you. Don't send in photos with cutouts that are already edited! I'll do all the editing, with my mom's help of course. Feel free to share the badge below to get the word out about the dance.
