On your bark, get set, pose! If you think you have the cutest dog (or pet), now is the time to show them off. Merrimack County Savings Bank (the Merrimack) is looking to crown the cutest companion during their “Dog Days of Summer” photo contest. The winner takes home a $500 cash prize and awards a $500 donation to a local animal rescue nonprofit of their choice.

Enter now through Friday, August 12th by simply photographing your pet wearing the Merrimack’s branded #MerrimackStyle green bandana, which can be picked up at any of the Bank’s seven branches. Once your pet is camera-ready, snap away and choose up to ten (10) of their most adorable candids. Submit by tagging @MerrimackStyle on Instagram using hashtags #merrimackstyle and #merrimackdogdays. Entries may also be emailed to

The five (5) finalists will be posted on Instagram for public vote on Monday, August 29th. The finalist with the highest number of likes will receive a $500 cash prize and a $500 donation in their name to an animal rescue nonprofit of their choice located in either Merrimack County or Hillsborough County, New Hampshire.
