National Kids and Pet Day Winner

This is Buddy. Today we're announcing the winner of the drawing for the $20 Care-a-Lot gift card.Since this is our first giveaway, we're kind of excited.  One of us is overly eager as you'll learn about in a moment.

We asked Jan to write all the names on slips of paper and put them into one of our clean food bowls so she could videotape one of us picking the winner.  We wouldn't be able to post the video since she can't work with MOV files but we figured we could pull some photos from the video to post.  Well, Miss Molasses almost missed the whole process, although she did manage to videotape the criminal publicity hound that took over so quickly she barely had time to push the button before the criminal publicity hound grabbed a name and tried to eat the winning ticket.

I'm Sam. Whoohoo! I got my nose in the bowl first so I got to pick the winning name. Here I am reporting for selection duty.

And thinking very carefully.Hey, Jan, you do know there aren't any treats in the bowl, don't you? You couldn't even toss in one?

And the winner is ...
Sorry the picture isn't very clear, but the winner is Life from a Cat's Perspective with Samantha, Clementine & Maverick.  As soon as we get their human's name and mailing address, their gift card will be on its way.

We would like to thank each and every one of you who participated in this giveaway, as well as those who were unable to but were supportive. We think you are all winners.

In case you missed any of the entries, you can find them scattered in four JFF posts:
First Entry and Tiger Lily
Latest Entries and Pet Peace of Mind
Kids and Pets Entries
And the final entry is included below --

One entry didn't make it into yesterday's post but was included in the drawing, so we're adding it here. We know you'll enjoy this photo too. It's at We 3 Doxies. This is the description emailed to us: "This is my daughter with our dachshund Albert. They are the true meaning of unconditional love."

Special thanks to Chicken Soup for the Pet Lovers Soul for partnering with us on this. It was a fun subject and one we really enjoyed posting on.

We were not paid to hold the contest. It was a "labor of love." And any opinions expressed were purely our own.
