We Have a Winner!

We have a winner for the Awkward Family Pet Photos giveaway!  The winner is:

Comment number 8–Barbara from If I Didn’t Have a Sense of Humor!  (I know this looks rigged, but I swear that’s the number that came up the first time–Riley just won a toy over on Barbara’s blog last week).  I know Barbara will definitely enjoy the humor in this book!
In other news, Riley has been doing very well.  She’s not overly happy to be in her crate, but she’s dealing with it.  She’s sleeping right now.  She and Chloe crossed paths yesterday when I failed to put Chloe in the dining room when I took Riley out (Chloe was asleep under some blankets–who knew she would get up and come to see Riley!).  They sniffed each others’ butts and Riley put her paw up on Chloe wanting to play with her.  I guess that’s a good sign!
Her physical therapy is still going well, she’s super flexible still.  It was super windy here last night and I kept waking up in the night, but Riley slept right through it (or at least she didn’t want to get up and go out…smart dog…too windy and cold for that!).

Physical Therapy

In case you missed yesterday’s post, you have a chance to win your very own copy of “Awkward Family Pet Photos,” a hilarious book I reviewed on Tuesday.  Click here to enter!

Here is a short video we took of me doing Riley’s physical therapy with her!

Sorry the video is so dark.  As you can see, she’s pretty flexible right now (just as flexible as she was before surgery)…yay!!

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.
