We haven't quite cracked the exact mathematical equation, but somehow, slapping a pair of sunnies on a dog makes it at least 50% cuter. Same goes for babies (whether the glasses are for sun protection or not), and we love octogenarians who can work a pair of aviators or cat-eye glasses!
So, in the spirit of summer shenanigans, we're launching a photo contest. Submit the best photo of your pet (dog, cat, iguana, parrot...whatever), your baby, or your granny rocking a pair of summer shades and it could be featured in an upcoming print issue.
Be sure to include your name, and the name and age of the pet, baby or granny in the photo, along with your neighborhood. Email entries to meanley[at]sandiegomagazine.com
Deadline for entries is Wednesday, July 6 at noon.
