Adventurous Portuguese Water Dog Wins Best

Black Belt Dog Photo Contest

 MONTGOMERY – Adventure abounds in Alabama’s Black Belt, and one special dog in Dallas County is no stranger to the region’s waters and woods. Rudder, a two-year old Portuguese Water Dog, recently brought home the most votes to win the second annual Best Black Belt Dog Photo Contest.

“From sporting dogs to everyday sidekicks, we know that the Black Belt provides excellent opportunities for adventures with our four-legged friends,” said Pam Swanner, director of the Alabama Black Belt Adventures Association. “We purposefully opened up the contest this year to include all dogs that were out and about in the region. Rudder is well known in the Selma area and is regularly seen on the Alabama River or walking down Main Street making him the perfect recipient of the top dog in this year’s expanded contest.”

Rex Jones, of Selma, submitted the photo of Rudder and noted that his pup literally goes everywhere with him.

“Rudder’s happiest place is on the water and he’s most at home on a boat,” noted Jones. “Living on the Alabama River, we are out there often but he also accompanies me around town to any of my sales meetings or general meetings throughout the day. He’s basically an office dog for us here at Cougar Oil.”

The Cougar Oil family was well-represented in the Best Black Belt Dog Photo Contest as the father of Cody Jones, who was the runner-up in the contest, also works at Cougar Oil. Cody submitted a photo of his young lab named Sadie. Rex Jones loved the competitive spirit he saw from Cody in the contest and is donating the prize package to the 13-year-old. Jones added, “I was so impressed with Cody and how he wasn’t afraid of the competition that I wanted to donate these winnings to him and his hunting dog, Sadie.”

The prize package is a personalized 100% cotton oil finished Shelter Dog Coat by Filson and a copy of Black Belt Bounty, an award winning deluxe hard-cover coffee table book that celebrates the traditions of hunting and fishing in Alabama’s famed Black Belt region—a retail value of $175.
