Winner and Halloween Safety

Sam:  Hey, Sam, Merci and Buddy here -

Merci: * taps Sam's leg*  Excuse me, Sam, but you forgot Rusty.

Sam"  But Rusty isn't a dog.  He just came along in case there were cat treats.

Merci: Nevertheless, he's here; he needs to be acknowledged.

Buddy:  What these two are taking the long way around to say is that today we announce the winner of the coupon for the free can of the new Iams Shakeables treats for dogs. 

Rusty:  Yes, the woofies went to to choose a winner.  It picked #6, and that number was assigned to Ruckus the Eskie from the blog  of the same name.,  Hey, Ruckus, as soon as you send us your mailing address, we will get the coupon off to you.

Buddy:  Hey, Rusty, I was supposed to make the announcement.

Rusty:  I'm sorry. You were all busy trying to cajole Jan into some more treats.  I didn't think we should keep entrants waiting.  Especially since Cameron has been waiting patiently to give his news.

Cameron:  Hey, I have a PSA announcement for you today.  Halloween is fast approaching and we know a number of blogs are hosting a party for all their blogging furry friends, so we thought we would help you all get safely through Spook Day. Actually, this information might be more helpful to your humans but we think you should know what they are planning to do to keep you safe.

Don't be fooled by the title.  These tips are for dogs AND cats. We Feline Funny Farmers would take offense at being left out, but you must understand the infographic was made for a dog site but appropriated ... um, I mean appropriate for all furries.

This is as large as it gets on this blog, so if you would like to see it in print large enough to actually read, we will direct your little paws to 8 Tips to Keep Your Dog Safe and Stree-Free This Halloween.

This infographic was created by The Uncommon and used with permission.

Now go party and have fun with all your friends and know your humans have your back.
