The Grand Prize Winner

Furst off, I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to all da bloggers who pawticipated in celebrating my Gotcha Day by sharing their Story of Me!   I know that everybuddy enjoyed sharing and reading ALL the wonderful stories!    Me and my momma has read each and every one, and is still going back and re-reading and commenting.   It was sooooooooo much fun and I think that EVERYBUDDY had a WINNING STORY!  That is why I chose the winner with a random drawing 

Seconds off, we need to announce da winner of the Grand Prize of $50 Donation to a Charity of Your Choice.........

Now, don't go thinking this is a real foto of my momma (her only wishes)

The truth is that my momma had da Fever and Sickies ALL Weekend and really looked liked THIS....

Yeppers, it was a pitiful sight............her was camped out on da Sofa all fur four days... moaning and groaning.  Her was so pitiful that her did not even take any Fotos of ME having da Grand Prize Drawing fur my Winner!   sigh.

Since I have no fotos of da Big Event.......I will describe fur you....
We kept a Super Important List of everybuddy who pawticipated up to Sunday........then her put all da names on pieces of paper and I selected one blog furrend at random, using my very own nose and paws..........trust me, this was most exciting!

Are you ready for da Winner of my Grand Prize?!?!?!?

DrumRoll Please......


My momma will send you an email......so Miss Shawnee can Select her Most Favorite Charity, and I will have my momma make a $50 Greenpaper Donation in Shawnee's name to that Charity!!!!

Congrats to Shawnee on her adoption story win. We have enjoyed reading so many of them over the holidays. We will continue to go back for more reading. I would like to offer maybe a suggestion if we do this again next year. Being pretty new to blogging I had a hard time trying to find all the stories. I was looking on everyone elses blogs for links to stories. I think it would be pretty cool if we used a Mr. Linky Tool to link all the stories up. This would have made it so easy to find all the stories. Again, thanks for hosting this and it was so much fun. HoundDogMom

We are so happy for Shawnee - congrats - he is one of our newest furiends.

We were so upset when our post didn't happen on Thanksgiving - it just disappeared. Mom finally found some time to redo it but it wasn't as good as the first one, especially the part about our shopping ideas. But we got it done. We really enjoyed reading about everypup's adoption story too.

YES! I just knew I was going to win - what, I didn't win? Oh well, I am still SO EXCITED for Shawnee!!!

Hope your mom feels better. My mom kind of always looks like that in the morning - she needs more of Lucy's magical potions.

Oh, yeah yeah yeah yeah! I'm so happy that my former foster sis won! Shawnee & her Mom rescued me twice (but you know that from reading my "story of me"), so it's extra special to me that Shawnee won the contest. Yeah!

Hii Minna,
Great Gotcha day celebration, isn't it?
Everyone wins!
The pups at the shelter Shawnee chooses will be the happiest:)

we are sorry we couldn't come up with our story. Mumsy just couldn't manage to help us. But we plan to write our adoption story soon and when we do, we will dedicate it to you.

No, Company captain is a position of contention!We just take turns to lead. Shadow is too young and is happy living up to his name and Shadowing us. Mummy and Daddy of course, donot qualify, they aren't any good at sniffing out fun stuff!

hav a great day,
Wags, Buddy n Ginger

Unknown said...
