When I started my blog, I somehow came across this whole network of Pug blogs. One of my favorites is Punchy over at Pug Possessed. She also has an Etsy Shop where she sells her paintings and clothes. A lot of her paintings are of Pugs and a lot of her clothes are made to fit a Pugs' wider chest. One day on her blog, she said that another blog was doing a giveaway for a $20 gift certificate to her Etsy shop, so I entered, really hoping I would win, and I did! :)
So, after much deliberation, I decided on a painting, and then bought one other thing. This was around the time we still had all three puppies and were trying to decide who to keep, so I didn't want to order a lot of dresses and only have Maggie for them, or vice versa. So, this is the painting I got:
It was my favorite from the first time I saw it. :)
Since I had a hard time deciding what to get, I bought one other thing: A tie for the boys. Punchy is a genius! I had never seen anything so great for a boy dog! Since at that time, I was pretty sure we were keeping Clyde, we took a wild guess at what his full grown neck size would be. I guess if it doesn't work, I'll order another, because we do have two boy dogs now. Brodie is a skinny guy, so it is too big for him, but I put some tape on it so he could model it for you.
He's not a very good picture taker... but I LOVE this tie!
I also took this "family" photo. I think it's a very funny picture. :)
Since finding the blog that did the giveaway, Libby's Library, I've found many other giveaway blogs. I suggest you check them out. I've also won an Avon package doing this. All you usually have to do is leave a comment and you are entered. There are more things you can do for more entries and one of them is blogging about the giveaway. Since I like to win things, I set up another blog so that I can post about the giveaways I'm entering. I want people to know about these great giveaways, even though it lessens my chance. ;) I just started the blog the other day, but go check it out if you want, and then delve deep into giveaway blogs with me! :)
