And the Winner Is

Before I introduce today's post, I have a beef ... or rather a chicken complaint. Can someone please explain to Jan she should not coat giveaway entries with the scent of our breakfast chicken and rice with peas.  Yes, it makes picking a winner tempting, but when she said pick a winner I thought she meant pick a winner to eat. But when I picked out the one I wanted to eat first, she took the chicken scented treat away from me.

Okay, she did feed us breakfast afterwards - kibble and chicken - but it's the principle of the thing that bugs me.

Now for today's post.  We did pick a winner to our August summer travel stories giveaway sponsored by Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul.  And since the camera Jan is using now downloads into a file format Jan could supposedly work with, she has spent the afternoon trying to figure out how to actually work with it.  Surprisingly, she did finally get an amateur video assembled and uploaded to YouTube. 

And the winner is .....

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Yes, it's Khyra and her Cousin Merdie.

Sorry for the poor quality of the photo.  Right after that point in the video, Jan started swinging the camera around a bit wildly  - with a little help from my head becasuse I really wanted that chicken-scented treat!.

Congratulations, Khyra & Cousin Merdie!  As soon as you send us your mailing information, Chicken Soup will send your canine goody bag winging it's way to Pawsylvania.

We would like to thank each of you who entered our giveaway, as well as those who helped promote it and Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover's Soul for providing the prize.

    Sam, We thinks if it smells good you should get to eat it. How rude of Jan to take the good smelling treat away.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
