Loveland, Ohio – What a beautiful moment it was when September Pet of the Month winner, Haley Hansberry, the proud owner of two longhaired miniature dachshunds, Phoebe and Poppy, visited Nothing Bundt Cakes Mason to pick up one of her prizes from Owner Mary Thress!

Mary Thress of Nothing Bundt Cakes kindly donated a Bundtlet Tower to the winner of this month’s competition and for Loveland Magazine’s future Pet of the Month stars.

When Haley went to pick up her cake she decided to bring Phoebe and Poppy along and lucky for us David Miller was able to capture it all! “It was a joy and pandemonium when Phoebe and Poppy visited the store. I was so happy to have been there to capture it,” Miller said.

We would like to give a huge Thank You to Scott Gordon from The Works Pizza and Mary Thress for donating a Bundlet Tower and a Works Pizza Gift Card to our Pet of the Month winner!

Who doesn’t love sharing a beautiful photo of their pet? If you are a Loveland resident and live close to the Loveland Bike Trail you know more than anyone that Loveland has a special place in its heart for pets. From dogs to cats to horses to exotic animals the Loveland community welcomes all animals with open arms! This is why here at Loveland Magazine we want to celebrate your pets.

At the beginning of every month, we will be selecting and featuring “Loveland’s Pet of the Month,” in which that pet will then be featured in our publication, weekly newsletters, and our social media platforms for that entire month.

The featured pet will receive a beautiful, glossy, high-quality 8X10 photo keepsake in addition to the Bundlet Tower. We love our pets as much you do Loveland so let’s pay tribute to them together every month!

This is Dean, Cassie’s older household sibling to Nala.

To enter into October’s Loveland Pet of the Month contest you must email me, Cassie Mattia, at [email protected] 2-5 of your favorite photos of your pet along with a short bio about your pet. Share with us and the community why your pet is so special to you along with any other unique facts that set your little buddy apart from other pets! The window for receiving pet of the month candidates will run from the 1st to the 25th (deadline) of every month. When sending in your pet photos and bios please include your pet’s name, age, and breed as well as your contact info with a short description of each photo you provide us with. If you want to share where your pet’s favorite spots are in Loveland that would be great as well!

Remember we DO NOT discriminate against any pets; all pets are welcome to enter into the contest!

As a reminder, you may start sending in pet photos and bios beginning on the 1st of every month. The deadline once again will be on the 25th of every month.

We are so excited to share the love you have for your pets and the joy they bring you every day with the community!
