Holly Eukanuba Challenge Champion Finalist

Local Salt Lake City Sheltie Named Eukanuba Challenge Champion Finalist

WHO: Westland Sheltie – Holly – from Magna, UT was just named a finalist in the Eukanuba 28-Day Challenge Champion Contest; there will be a total of five finalists. As a finalist, Holly and four other canines from around the U.S. have each won a year's supply of Eukanuba food.

WHAT: Between Feb. 15 and April 30, 2011, dog owners taking the 28-Day Challenge were encouraged to enter the Challenge Champion Contest by submitting 100 words or less to explain their dog's transformation from good to extraordinary while eating Eukanuba for just 28 days. The winning "Challenge Champion" will be announced on Eukanuba's Facebook page Monday, June 6, 2011. The top dog will receive the pink carpet treatment with a Hollywood-style photo and video shoot, appear in the September issue of Dog Fancy magazine and star in an upcoming Eukanuba print advertisement.

ABOUT HOLLY: Holly is a 10 year-old seizure alert service dog, who recently experienced a transformation so drastic after completing the Eukanuba 28-Day Challenge that she's now out of retirement. Holly's owner, Shanna had begun the retiring process with her because Holly was slowing down and having more difficulty walking from what her owner thought was due to old age. But after simply switching Holly to Eukanuba Weight Control, Shanna saw an amazing transformation – Holly dropped the extra weight she'd been carrying and now acts like a young dog again. Holly's full of energy and is back to her service dog status, helping Shanna live her life confidently and independently. Holly and Shanna are very active in their community – they regularly speak to elementary school children about the proper care of animals, as well as compete in agility, herding and obedience competitions.
