New Mexicans submitted more than 1,000 photos and videos of their pets beating the summer heat, but only two could be the winners.

Our photo winner is Loretta Montoya of Albuquerque. She sent in a picture of her dog, Maximus the Yorkshire, "getting his wind on."

The top video honor went to Susan Lucero of Albuquerque for her submission of her English Springer Spaniel, Cocoa. Lucero says Cocoa would rather float in his boat than swim in the pool.

Thank you for sending in your photos and videos! You can still take a look at the Dog Days of Summer Contest photos and videos here:
