Super Saturday: 2 Paws Up for Winning!

Sometimes the very best part of blogging is getting to know other pet bloggers, especially when they have giveaways ;).  Recently, we had a bit of doggy luck and won a few items that give us happy paws.

First up, we won our very own pawtographed copy of
Tales of a French Scent Hound by Emma the GBGV.

Tales of a French Scent Hound

Now me, I’m more for turning the pages of a real, honest-to-goodness book.  But if you prefer to live life in the digital world, Emma’s book is also available on Kindle.

Li'l Girl: Turn the Pages

“Turn the pages for me, Mama! I can’t open the thing myself!”

I think Austin might be getting a little crush on Emma.  And who could blame him?  She’s pawsitively gorgeous!

Austin - Staring at Emma

“Hmmm… who’s this saucy French gal? I can’t take my eyes off of her.”

Emma’s book is not written in novel format, as a progression of chapters. Instead, it’s a collection of her adventures simply numbered as different tales, hence the title. Let me tell you, Emma is as funny and clever as she is beautiful! And there are just no words for how much I love all the pictures. I won’t give away my favorite tales or favorite pictures here, because I don’t want to spoil anything.  Emma is a classy, practical dog; but she also knows how to have fun and how to share it with others.
We give Tales of a French Scent Hound two paws up!!  Thank you VERY MUCH to Emma for letting us win a copy (again, a pawtographed copy!) of her pawsome book!


Earlier in the month, we participated in the {This Moment} See Beautiful Blog Hop for the third time.
For this hop, Amy over at Training Toby was having a See Beautiful giveaway.

Well, were lucky enough to win this cute, handmade See Beautiful koozie.  

See Beautiful Koozie

Handcrafted by Mimi of Mimi’s Hooks

Admittedly, I don’t often drink out of bottles and cans, so I probably won’t use it as drink cozy.  Instead, I think I will find a pen/pencil holder to fit into it.  Then, I can have it on my desk and be reminded to See Beautiful every day.  You can check out the rest of the See Beautiful products HERE.  I am especially fond of this necklace and am currently trying to find an excuse to order it.
Again, big thank you to Amy at Training Toby for the chance to win this too-cute koozie!

That’s it for now!  I have a couple other special books that I didn’t exactly win, but were gifts.  I’ll talk about those in an upcoming post!

      You’re very welcome Emma! We did enjoy it… there are some pictures in there that just crack me up. Many I’ve seen in your blog posts, but some I had not. I have two definite favorites, but won’t give them away.

  3. Congrats on your winnings!

    We love all the blog friends and winning stuff too! Congrats on your great winnings. Very clever to think of a different use for the drink koozie. Yes, I can see why Austin might have a crush on Emma, she is a cutie!

    Congratulations! Emma’s book looks adorable! Bunny is sporting a See Beautiful tag and I did ask for that necklace for Christmas. I think we have similar tastes! 🙂

      Oh, I think so! I do want that necklace :). And I love that Bunny has one of the See Beautiful tags!

      P.S. I SOOO need to catch up at Tales and Tails… think I’ll do that today! You might get hit with a lot of comment notifications, lol.

    Very cool! Congratulations! Winning stuff is so much fun – I won a t-shirt that says “I like big mutts and I cannot lie” and also some treats for Kayo from Best Bully Sticks. I can’t wait to start doing some giveaways of my own!

    Nice changes to the site!

      Ha! I love that shirt! Dachshund shirts make use of wiener jokes, which are funny, but hey, I like big mutts too!
      Oooh, we’d like to win some stuff from BBS. We got some stuff to test for a review, but hey, that doesn’t count… ‘cuz we had to work for it :).
      I’ve only had one giveaway, and I REALLY planned to make giveaways a bigger thing here; I’ve been slacking on that (among other things), so yeah, I need to start having more giveaways.

      And thank you, you’re the first person who has said anything regarding the changes. It’s fall, and orange is my favorite color… and it was just time for a change. The other theme was too… pink. And I’m not a pink kind of gal. Can’t remember why I ever used it in the first place.

  8. Congratulations! Love what you won 🙂
