With all the nasty storms around the USA I think we could do with some cheering up and what way is there then to have a giveaway.
Now you all know by now that I don't like water - water is bad, water makes you shrink and baths - well don't even get me started on how bad those are !!!
So what is your challenge?
It is to show me that water can or can not be fun, so get the parents to get out the cameras or hunt through those files and show me some pics of you having fun with water or the clever ways you have of avoiding water. You could be having a bath, running in the sea, a river, a pond or a puddle. You could be playing with the garden hose or getting sprayed with a squirt bottle. You could even be standing in the rain !!! And YES - you can even be avoiding the water if you want too - that is my favorite! Looking at the rain through the window as you are safely inside, under an umbrella, running around puddles not through them and so on!!!
How to play - read carefully
Simply put the photo's on YOUR blog and tell us how you got wet. Then come back here and post YOUR LINK to that page - on this comments page. How easy is that? The giveaway starts today and will run until eeeewwwww black cat day - Friday 13th of May 2011. Entries will close Friday at midnight - and the winner will be drawn on Saturday 14th of May using Random.Org. Anyone can enter and tell your buddies to cal on by too.
What you can win
We have TWO - yes TWO prizes this time. They consist of a set each of 5 Handmade "Wipe Your Paws" Cards (with envelopes) and a CD Photo Book. There will also of coarse be a yummy selection of treats and a toy or two for the "real" winners too.
So What are you waiting for? Let's see if you can convince me that water can be fun !
Don't forget to click on the entries and see some pawsome photo's as well as saying hi to the new dog bloggers.

Awww, the handmade cards are so cute and beautiful.ReplyDelete
Let me check whether I've any pictures of me wet but show that I'm happy. It'd be a hard hunt for my mom though as I don't like water either, LOL!!! I'll try!!!
We don't like baths and water any more than you do, Reilly, and getting shot with the water bottle is even less fun! The only post you'd get of us is that we'd be standing under the umbrella in the pouring rain! Why the heck do we want to get wet?!ReplyDelete
Love ya lots
Maggie and MItch
I have some bath pictures off Coop and Lola. BUT they don't look to happy in them. They hate the bath. Cute cards thoughReplyDelete
Water, you want us near water???? Are you crazy? Water belongs in a bowl for drinking. We occasionaly suffer in the rain. When Mom and Dad are cruel a bath. Let them take pictures, you have got to be kidding.ReplyDelete
While the kids are horrified I can't wait to see the pictures. We will have to see if we can snap something before the deadline.
Gweat idea WeillyReplyDelete

I am not one with water either but I keep being forced to get wet. So I am sure there are pictures and videos of me!ReplyDelete
OOH what fun! I have PLENTY of pictures of me IN water. I LOVE to swim & play in water. I've played in water everywhere, you name them. Pools, lakes, beaches, tubs, puddles, drains, bathtubs, jacuzzi tubs, floods, creeks, etc, etc, etc. I'm a water baby!!!ReplyDelete

Oh yeay !! I love water - it's my favorite thing ! I must be able to find something in the old files !ReplyDelete
I LOVE WATER. I can't understand not loving water. I live for water. I could show you how to like water if you want. WATER IS GOOD.ReplyDelete
And I LOVE your cards too.
Me and Vickie are big fans of you and your mom and your work.
Whoops, I forgot to send my link to my site, cause I wanna win a prize, even though we are ordering cards today.ReplyDelete
I have pictures of me and water in almost every entry cause I LOVE WATER
Water, we hate water, getting wet water that is. We love our days along the riverbank sniffing around but as for getting our heads wet, we run a mile! Dex & Louis xReplyDelete
We're not big bath fans over here!ReplyDelete
Water can be fun?? We like to drink water and that is about it.ReplyDelete
Great contest idea. Here is my post:ReplyDelete
Branson the Great Dane
Those are some purty cards. I would love to have some of them to send to my friends. I just took the plunge and posted about how I got wet on my blog. http://brudy1120.blogspot.com/2011/05/how-i-got-wet.html. I am pretty new to all this, but I am really loving meeting all of you. Thanks for the inspiration.ReplyDelete
Teehee! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE water!! ALL kinds! I just posted a pic of me after I played in my turtle pool. Those cards sure are awesome! I bet my mommy would love to share those with her family & friends. Thanks so much for the wonderful contest!ReplyDelete

Hi Reilly! Here's my post:ReplyDelete
Thanks for the fun!!
PeeS: I'm doing my own darn post! -Ruby
As you can see, I LOOOOOOOOVE water. I it outside in the rain, go out of my way to drink it, gulp it down after an hour of munching on my bully sticks, and will take an extra long time sniffing around outside in it when it's time to go weewee!
Mom and Dad love this picture and love showing it to everyone because I am acting crazy just to get a sip!!
Thanks for running the giveaway, I can't wait to see other doggies loving the rain too!
OMD. I have a gazillion posts about me and my love for water. I don't care if it's a pond, a pool or just the nearest mudhole! Here's one of them: http://sagechronicles.wordpress.com/2011/04/11/muddy-monday-7/ReplyDelete
Argos dislikes baths, but he does play in water! Here is a picture of him in a doggie pool last summer.ReplyDelete
We love the water. We paddle around in our pond at home, but nothing is as good as the beach.ReplyDelete
Wyatt and Stanzie
We joined the fun!!!ReplyDelete
Here's the link :
I have a water crazy sheltie :)ReplyDelete
Hi Reilly! We found our way here from Eva's blog and love your blog, we look forward to reading all about your adventures. Dexter & Louis xxxReplyDelete
Ooooo! We have a mixed bag at our house. Parker loves the ocean, a pond, puddles... anything that involves fairly still water. Skye will play in the hose or sprinkler all day long, but won't put a paw in the lake. That's why they're the odd couple I guess...ReplyDelete
What a fun contest. Here is our posting for your contest. Got wet because my dad was playing with the garden hose with me. I LOVE it when he does that.ReplyDelete
My guys are pretty split, with Koira loving the water, every second of it, and Pallo believing fully that it will kill him if he gets too close. Though, he has lately started to wade up to his belly if it is warm out.ReplyDelete
Here's my link...ReplyDelete
Hi, I'm Corbin, I don't believe we've met! I've heard about you from a lot of my friends so I thought I'd stop by and introduce myself! Your contest seems like a lot of fun and I sure do love water!ReplyDelete
I joined in the fun! Here's the link to my blog about water: http://cutecorbin.blogspot.com/2011/05/h2o.htmlReplyDelete
