Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Dog Duty

Well, we had the big Xbox One reveal. The big news: TV, sports, TV, sports and all that, and oh yeah, apparently Air Bud is gonna be in the next Call of Duty. If you saw the video and didn't immediately think this week's 'Shop Contest was gonna do it doggie style, you must be new around here.

So, Activision has not yet released any assets of the service dog (there are, like, five official screenshots) so these three exploitables are screengrabs from this video. You're more than welcome to capture your own frame and use it. The close up of the dog ain't that great because it chops off his ears, but you're smart, creative individuals, I'm sure you guys can come up with something.

Feel free to swap in other famous video game dogs as well, or put CoD Dog in their scenes hint hint Asshole Dog hint hint Duck Hunt.

While most of you are smart enough to figure out how to upload images, here are some simple steps to take for those less familiar with the practice.

1. Create your 'Shop and save it to your desktop.

2. Go to the bottom of this post and click "Discuss."

3. This brings up a comment window. Click the icon that looks like a picture.

4. This brings up another window called "Insert Image." Click "Choose file" if you're uploading your 'shop from your desktop

5. Alternatively, you can upload the 'Shop to a free image hosting service. I suggest imgur. Then paste the image's URL into the field that says "Image URL." Note: this must be the URL of the image itself, not the page where it is displayed. That means the URL ends in .jpg, .gif, .png, whatever.

6. Add editorial commentary and hit submit and your image will load. If it doesn't, upload the image to imgur and paste the image URL as a comment. I promise I will look at it.

7. I'm not sure if we still have file size restrictions under Kinja but it's probably a good idea to keep your image size under 1 MB. This is especially true for animated .gifs. If you're still having trouble uploading the image, try to keep its longest dimension (horizontal or vertical) under 1000 pixels.

Alright! Have at it. Thanks very much for your participation.
