Caption This: Dog with Mouth Full of Tennis Balls

What would this chocolate Labrador, Bailey, have to say—if she could even talk with her mouth full of tennis balls?

Patch readers, you're up!

We need your wit, creativity and animal psychic abilities to craft the perfect caption for the first entry in our pet photo caption contest! 

What's Bailey thinking, with her mouth full of tennis balls?

Suggest your caption in the Comments section below. The contest ends at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5. The winner will be announced Thursday, Sept. 6. 

The author of the winning caption and pet owner will receive a Patch-branded version of the photo, with the caption inserted. 

Have a photo you'd like captioned in future editions?


  1. Any animal will do. Dogs, cats, horses, lizards, birds, guinea pigs—you name it, we'll take it.
  2. Limit of 4 photos per person (or family), per month. 
  3. Submission is ongoing. Post your photos whenever you have them; the more photos, the better!

Whoever said 'three's a crowd' obviously never tried tennis balls.
