Hey Blog Buddies,
Today is our dog Molly's Gotcha Day,
the first anniversary of the day we adopted her.
She's such a cutie, but I'm somewhat biased.
In honor of this special day, we're having a giveaway.
Uh, no, she isn't the giveaway!
It's a modest little giveaway.
If you're a reader of this blog, you'll recognize the charts...
The chart for Needle Delights Originals' Rainforest Revisited,
the chart for Plum Street Sampler's Boris,
and one of my little ort bags, for good measure.
To get a chance to win,
just leave a comment on this post
and answer two questions:
How many, and what kinds of companion animals
have lived with you over the years?
Feel free to go into as much detail as you like.
If the answer is none, that's OK, too.
I'll start off:
I grew up in a city apartment that didn't allow pets,
but we did have an assortment of goldfish
and a couple of small turtles from the dime store.
Sad, I know.
As an adult, I made up for lost time.
Here they are, in order:
Maxine, tri-color basset hound;
Moonshine, yellow lab-staff;
Governor, tri-color beagle;
Frazier, orange mackerel tabby cat;
Agnes, tri-color basset hound;
Mandy, black-and-tan German Shepherd Dog;
Timmy, tri-color basset hound;
Beulah, tri-color basset hound (there's a pattern here!).
All these guys and gals are now in dog heaven.
Frazier, too--he absolutely loved dogs, and it's a good thing he did!
And finally, Molly, our black lab/pointer/scent hound mix,
adopted from the humane society a year ago today.
Deadline to enter is midnight, Chicago time,
on Sunday, September 23, 2012.
Molly and I will draw the winner's name the following day,
and post it on the blog.
Make sure you include a way for me to reach you.
Molly is ready for her close-up!
She wishes you good luck
and thanks you for visiting!
