If there's one thing I've learned from your contest entries this week, it's that Pop Candy readers really love their dogs - so this new opportunity from Portlandia may spark some interest.
The IFC series just announced its "Underdog Sweepstakes," in which a prized pooch will win a walk-on role next season. To enter, all you have to do is submit a pic or video of your dog on Instagram or Vine using the hashtag #portlandiaunderdog.
Portlandia has featured a few dog-inspired sketches in the past, including the classic "Whose Dog Is This?"

The deadline to enter the contest is Oct. 5. (Fun fact: Portlandia star Carrie Brownstein is an animal lover who worked at the Oregon Human Society after Sleater-Kinney broke up. She discusses it at length in this podcast interview.)
