Okay every doggie and other furbabies - Mom and Bailey have been hard at work creating the prize for our latest giveaway and of coarse I gave the final approval (I am the big dog dogervisor after all)
So what is it you have to do?
The other day Sawyer the Schnauzer had a terrific post on her blog about how she got her name. It started Mom thinking and wondering - how did every doggie and other furbabies get their names? So this is the challenge for you.
On YOUR bloggie - tell every one how you got your name, had your mom and dad already picked a name for you, did they wait and see what personality you had, was it a favorite movie character, a relative, a book character ...and so on. If you need some help have a look what Sawyer wrote. We gave Sawyer an entry in the giveaway - because she had already written about this. NOTE : Quite a few of you have already done a "how did you get your name" challenge and it okay if you want to use an old posting :)
Once you have done that come back here and leave a link to your post in my comments so everyone can go and see it. How easy is that ???? And don't forget to tell your friends too. The giveaway will run until the Monday 18th April 2011 and we will draw the winner using Random.Org Any furbaby can enter - doggies, kitties, bunny's what ever :)
And what is the prize for a giveaway you may be barking - well here it is. This is a little mini photo album for the hoomans to put all their favorite pictures of YOU in. Mom hands cuts each page with the letters on and then decorates them. These will be also available on the new bloggie for sale and the best part is you can have them personalized - with YOUR name and the colors you like. So get those paws tapping on the keyboard and lets see how you got your name. Oh, and there will also be some yummy treats in the parcel that Mom sends to the winner - just for you!
Remember you can click on the photos to see them bigger !!
Somemore beautiful work by your mom! Wow.ReplyDelete
I've been buying a lot of handmade goods off of etsy.com. I think more and more people are looking for items that are unique and handcrafted, like your cards and this mini album.
We are sure to join this one!
Wow - Can we cheat? We have done this before:ReplyDelete
Sorry - there are a lot of us - grins.
Wow..great idea Reilly! (I'm sure it was all YOUR idea..right?) Excellent story to tell I'm sure about your own name, hopefully we'll get to read that story!ReplyDelete
Wow! That is awesome - looks like a lot of hard work!ReplyDelete
Here is our entry/post
I like your Mom's new helper!ReplyDelete
I already posted the story about my name so this should be an easy one for me. BOL! Very nice gifts too! I agree with Sara, we like to buy handmade, but Mum tends to use Artfire.
Oh WOW that album is beautiful! I'm guessing your mom made that too? She's really good at arts & crafts. HMM my blog name isn't all that fancy. It really didn't take that long for hoomie Melissa to come up with that simple blog name mine. That's because she couldn't think of anything better for a title! HEE HEEReplyDelete
Your mom does such beautiful work, Reilly and Baily. Autumn and Francesca are waving at you, Bailey!ReplyDelete
We'll get to work on our post!
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
Your mom is amazing, Reilly! My mom can't make anything - LOL! Looking forward to seeing all the "name" blog posts!ReplyDelete
That's so cool!! Here's my entry!ReplyDelete
Whoops! I can't believe I read this post wrongly!!! Gosh, I must have been half asleep or something. How embarrassing...ReplyDelete

Oh WOW! I was just about to tell you that I did the 'How I Got My Name' post for your contest. DANG your fast!!! TEE HEEReplyDelete
Anyway, I've pee-mailed you my mailing address too. I am SO happy that I won that contest. THANK YOU everyone for voting on that name, HallBark! Me hope you like it, Reilly.
I love learning how everyone got their names! It's so fascinating what makes us humans choose names for our 4legged friends.:)ReplyDelete
I have done this for Meeka and Maizey, but never written Magnus story. Can I enter the two girls stories and if I can get it done before the 18th come back and enter Magnus'?
I'll leave their links and if it's okay you can enter them in the drawing. Thanks!!
Hey Reilly, Rugby has a post up about his name!ReplyDelete

Took her long enough, and without Mango & Dexter's post, she wouldn't have remembered, but here's our entry!ReplyDelete
Hi Reilly! If it's not too late, I finished the story of Magnus' name. His link is:ReplyDelete
BTW I'm glad I found the link to your blog I used to read a long time ago, but somehow it got lost from my feed reader, an issue I have now fixed!:))
Sounds fun!! We are new followers!ReplyDelete
