Wanna Be a Winner?

So, after the Awkward Family Pet Photos post yesterday, the publishers have decided to give away a copy to one of our readers!  I know some other blogs were doing this too, so you can double or triple your chances to win one!

If you want to win a copy of the book (see yesterday’s review for more information), just leave a comment on this post telling us what kind of animal your very first pet was!  Mine was a goldfish…my parents really weren’t animal people when we were kids!  🙂

The contest will end at midnight EST on Friday, November 4th, so get your comment in by then!  The winner will be chosen at random (by Random.org), so everyone has an equal chance at winning!  It should be fun to see what everybody’s first pet was!  And if you have never had a pet, just say so (but I don’t think you’d be reading a dog blog if you weren’t a “pet person”).

Riley is still doing well.  Her physical therapy (flexing and extending her leg) is going great and she’s still super flexible in her joint.  I don’t really see a post-surgery difference in flexibility, so that’s super!

Riley snuggled up to her new Monkey Mark toy she won on Miss Barbara’s blog!

Look, “Lucifur” is back for a visit!!  I have to put Chloe in the dining room while I take Riley out to potty…so they don’t intermingle and play with each other.

  1. My VERY VERY first pet was an Irish Setter named Shillelaugh. She was one whacky dog and I miss her every day. I got her for Christmas during my first year of college and she was my constant companion through some rocky times. She lived to be 13 year which is quite old for her type of dog.Love Noodles" Mommy #2

  3. Our very first pet…oh the memories. I was just 3 years old when I got my first puppy from the Michigan Humane Society. We named her Ginger and, since they didn't have crates back then, she slept in our bathtub overnight for the first few days we had her. Then one night we heard her bell on her collar tinkling through the house. She figured out how to get out of the tub and from that day on, she slept with me. We grew up together and did everything together. I was 11 years old when Ginger died and I can still remember all the emotions I felt at that loss. Ginger will never be forgotten and that was almost 60 years ago.

  5. My first pet was a white German Shepherd named Chloe – she went everywhere with us kids. She use to have to sleep in the laundry room and I would sneak in there at night and be cuddled up with her in there and my parents would find me in there in the morning and I would have dragged all my pillows and blankies in there with me 🙂
