A new contest is looking for 12 top dogs to feature in a 2022 calendar.

I've got a pretty adorable dog if I say so myself. She may be a mutt, but my four-year old Rosie is full of personality, an absolute goofball and a real looker! She makes my wife and me laugh all the time with her ridiculous looks and antics -- like when she sitsat the back door, contentedly gazing outside and soaking in the sun or when she sits on the couch with her big favorite ball just hanging out of her mouth.

She's gotten more than a few pets and "Awww"s from strangers when we take her with us to breweries.

I may be biased, but I think Rosie could be a calendar dog! As a matter of fact, she literally could be!
