Dog owners: I hope you’ve entered your best friend in MNN’s Green Dog of the Year contest — because today’s the last day to enter to win a year’s supply of Eukanuba’s Naturally Wild Formula dog food, not to mention worldwide eco-fame for your dog!

If you’ve refrained from entering the contest because you feel your best friend isn’t quite as green as an MNN-reading dog-owner’s pet could be, here are a couple green ideas that could help ecofy your dog for the next big contest:

>> Don’t let your doggie starve while waiting to win MNN’s contest! Just bake your own organic doggie treats! At Organic Authority, Barbara Feiner recommends three doggie cookbooks — and says “dogs swoon for homemade organic liver biscotti!”

>> Not ready to splurge on another cookbook? Then make Valentine’s Day Dog Biscuits! It’s A Vegan Dog’s Life has a recipe for Good Life Dog Cookies so you can feed your dog some homemade yummies this Sunday.

>> Get a free dog toy — Orbee-Tuff Ball from Planet Dog — by eating organic yogurt! Stonyfield Organic’s myStonyfield Farm Rewards Program just added this recyclable, long-lasting bouncy toy to its list of rewards. You’ll need to eat quite a lot of yogurt, though, to collect the 60 mySonyfield points — at roughly a point per small yogurt cup eaten — required for a medium Orbee-Tuff Ball.
