|Charlie's winning picture.|
Charlie’s picture earned the most votes in our online contest where more than 2,000 votes were cast.
Charlie, a Goldendoodle, captured the majority – 17 percent. Charlie’s owners, Breanne and Jeff Beyer of Kaukauna, Wisconsin, tell us Charlie is about 5 months old and loves to get into mischief and dig in the yard.
“Jeff is a landscape foreman, so we have a lot of landscaping to tempt him,” Breanne said.
Jeff’s job also means the family is very familiar with calling 811, making Charlie a “qualified” canine safety ambassador.
“Jeff is obviously familiar with calling Diggers Hotline before working,” Breanne said.
|Our new canine safety ambassador, Charlie.|
Stay tuned for Charlie’s Safe Digging ad, which will be unveiled at Energy Park at the Wisconsin State Fair on Aug. 11 (8-11) ‒ a day to raise awareness about dialing 811 three days before you dig.
Charlie will help us spread an important safety message: Doggone it! Call Diggers Hotline (811) before you dig.
Charlie also will get a basket of doggy treats. Congrats to Charlie and the Beyer family and thanks to all the pet owners who submitted photos in our contest. Our first runner up, BW, also "dug up" a lot of votes.
