Doggone it! Vote for the new Peoples Gas Ambassadog for Safe Digging

Dogs love to dig, but people need to be reminded to call 811 to make sure that digging is safe for them, their pets, and the natural gas and other lines near their home. Peoples Gas needs your help selecting a safe digging Ambassadog in its annual Doggone it! photo contest.

The Peoples Gas “top ten” dogs are:

• Oscar likes to help his mom with gardening. “Helping” looks a lot like digging up flowers and shaking the dirt off.

• Pepper has a refined palette, but she's no snob. She enjoys a wide variety of cuisines. Her favorites are sous vide steak juice, sushi, and dirt.

• Kori enjoys sandy summer days at the beach. She recently found a great place to hide her ball.

• Atlantis likes to make holes at home, which makes the front yard THE place to dig.

• Luna is a St. Bernard – a breed known for digging people out of snow, but she makes do with digging dirt under the deck in the summer months.

• Diesel is a skilled digger who uses holes to stash the toys he steals from his big sister.

• Derby only has 3 months of digging experience, but this puppy is an expert at sniffing out the moles below.

• Duque puts his paws to good use by helping friends dig into do-it-yourself projects at home.

• Radar is a retired racing greyhound who likes to relax by digging in at the beach.

• Cooper stays focused on his goals. Unfortunately, he was not available for comment.

Now it’s your turn to vote at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DoggoneVote. You can vote as many times as you like between now and Wednesday, August 5.

The winner will be featured in a Peoples Gas campaign to raise awareness about the importance of safe digging before yardwork, construction and gardening. When you call 811, you will learn whether natural gas lines or other underground infrastructure are located where you plan to dig. The 811 safety message is especially important this year with more people staying home and spending extra time working in their yards during the pandemic.

The winner will also receive a gift certificate from Kriser’s Natural Pet.

The new Ambassadog will be revealed on August 11. That’s 8/11 – the number to call to find out if it is safe to dig! Stay tuned for safety!
