*WHO**: *Kozmo, a dog from Uniontown, Ohio, was named a finalist in the Iams Love Tails Contest that began on Valentine's Day. Kozmo and nine other finalists were awarded a cash prize and a year's supply of Iams pet food, plus the chance to be featured in a national advertisement for Iams.

*WHAT**: *Iams Love Tails is a nationwide contest in search of heartwarming love stories between pets and their owners. The grand-prize winning family and their pet will star in a national advertisement for Iams, featuring their real-life "Love Tail."

Dog and cat owners submitted their stories and photos for consideration from February 14 - March 3, 2013. Ten finalists were selected based on the unique bond that they share with their dogs and cats, and the important role Iams plays in those relationships.

*HOW:* Each of these finalist's stories will be brought to life in a video that will be shared on the Iams Facebook page from June 24 - 28. Fans will select their favorite "Love Tail" that week (June 24 - 28), and the grand prize-winning family will be announced on July 2.

*KOZMO'S WINNING STORY (as submitted by Kozmo's owner Melissa Nagy)**: *

Kozmo loves to walk, the word WALK gets him excited, but Kozmo has a built in 6 am walking alarm clock. Before our alarm clock even sounds, an 80 pound one-year-old Kozmo jumps on us and head-butts us awake with pure excitement for his walk. It's hard not to wake up, seeing his gorgeous green eyes! Kozmo not only wakes us up but our other two large dogs with the same enthusiasm. We know nutrition and exercise are important for dogs but something tells me Kozmo is looking out for our health as well.
