Flash is also an international canine. He was born in Queensland, Australia
and moved with his family to the U.S. last year. While in Australia, Flash
enjoyed going to the Outback, participating in animal charity walks and
swimming in the tropical Queensland waters. He still has a fan base there that
sends him toys and treats from Australia to this day. But he's an all-American
dog now, and has settled into his California life well.

As the contest's Grand Prize winner, Flash's owner received a Canon EOS
Digital Rebel T3 Digital SLR Camera Kit and a variety of SENTRY ^ Petrodex pet
dental care products. This will enable her to take even more shots of Flash,
who clearly loves being in front of the camera.

Radio personality and pet enthusiast Steve Dale served as the celebrity judge
of the nationwide SENTRY Petrodex Superstar Smiles contest, which received
nearly 2,000 photo entries in just four weeks. The aim of the contest was to
help raise awareness among pet owners about the importance of keeping their
dogs' teeth clean and healthy.

"The competition was fierce, and choosing the winner from the five finalists
was a tough one," Dale stated. "I just kept going back to Flash's expression
and his happiness, which radiated through the photo. His star quality is
strong, and from his smile and healthy teeth, it's clear that his owner is
taking care of him well!"

"The SENTRY Petrodex contest is becoming a tradition now, and we always
receive so many photos of beautiful dogs," said Patsy Sumner, vice president
of marketing services at Sergeant's. "It is touching for those of us who work
in the pet products industry to see how these products benefit pets.
Congratulations to Flash. We wish him happiness and dental health for many
years to come."
