Lottery offers pets a chance to be scratched by thousands

Does your pug have a million-dollar mug?
Washington's Lottery is seeking our furry friends for some serious scratching.
Six pets will be featured on the $2 "Cats vs. Dogs" scratch tickets coming out later this year. The top three dogs and three cats printed on the tickets will be chosen by online voting.
Entries can be submitted starting today through July 28. Voting is July 29 to Aug. 4.
The image submitted will be the photo used on the ticket.
Get creative. This is an excuse to dress up your cat as the Space Needle or have your pup wear pantyhose.
But keep it clean: No guns, booze or sexy poses.
It's a win-win for doting pet owners.
People are always posting pictures of their pets on social media. Now the whole state is subjected to that darling dog and precious pussycat.
The victorious pets will get lots of scratch, but owners won't get any.
The only compensation is the glory.

Rules
No gerbils, snakes or fish: The contest is for cats and dogs only.
