Brittany Costa wins second place in Candid photos

Brittany Costa of Gilbertsville, Pa., took this photo of Wyatt Williamson and Lambert in Boyertown Pa.

"This is Wyatt Williamson, taking one of his best buddies out for the day," said Costa. "Lambert got the day off from his farm duties and spent a beautiful Saturday with his favorite little human hanging out at a football game!"

Costa said her son Wyatt is 6 years old.

"I work at Ironstone Veterinary Clinic in Boyertown," said Costa. "Lambert is one of Dr. Allen's dogs. He's a Spanish mastiff. He's so big he barely fit in my car."

"Lambert and his son guard the goats at Dr. Allen's farm, and the mother and his daughter guard the cattle,"saidCosta. "They're farm dogs and keep the predators out."

"We were going to my step-son's football game, and Lambert got the day off to come with us."
