    Dog Days

    In our first-ever Dog Photo Contest, we asked to see the dogs of Lehigh Valley, and our Fig friends answered! Sponsored by Venture X, Lehigh Valley Printing, Split Pine Axe Throwing, Working Dog Press, and Ciocca Dealerships, we hosted the contest on Fig’s social media and received over 50 submissions—which is a lot of cute puppies to choose from.

     

    Thank you to our sponsors for making this contest possible!
