Meet February’s Top Dog

March 10, 2017

We are having so much fun seeing how dogs are digging life in Charleston’s island town via the Dogs of Daniel Island Photo Contest! February was another month of tough choices, but we put the finalists to a vote on the My Island Town Facebook page, and based on your votes, a winner has emerged!

We are excited to announce Golden Retriever Chance as the winner of February’s Dogs of Daniel Island photo contest! As a winner, Chance will receive a $25 gift card to Lucia’s Premium Pet and be featured in the Daniel Island News, as well as the My Island Town Facebook page and our Instagram. At nearly six months old, it seems Chance already has the good life figured out, as he lounges on his screened in porch. Still, we wanted to learn more about this Daniel Island pup, so we caught up with his owner, Allison:
