We Were Winners!

As all of you probably know, Bogie had his Be My Baby's Mama contest last month and actually the month before too and he chose a winner on the last day of November and it just happened to be us! We are absolutely thrilled! This is the artwork that we submitted to help Bogie find his baby mama!You probably can't read the small print so we'll tell you what it says. It says:

Single black and tan male Dale looking for a beautiful, energetic, fun-loving Dale girlie who has a quick wit, who loves the great outdoors, who loves to hike and collect sticks - the bigger the better, who isn't afraid of swimming adventures, who loves hamburgers - patty first, then the top bun and then the bottom bun, has to have a soft spot for kitty cats and (this is the really important part) at the end of the day loves to snuggle and cuddle and make beautiful music together. If we are too much alike and you think we might have a future together, give me a woof and we'll meet for a burger and fries!

We certainly hope that Bogie's phone has been ringing off the wall and he has many beauties to choose from!

The prize was a book called, Chicken Soup for the Soul - Loving our Dogs! It arrived in the mail on Thursday!
Mom has never read one of these Chicken Soup for the Soul books so she was anxious to read us a story! We didn't get past the first story called "Patience Rewarded" and mom was sniffling up a storm and she had to run to get a tissue! The book has 380 pages so we think that mom better stock up on Kleenex before she reads any more stories to us!
Maybe I'd best take it from here, mom, and spare you!We got the cutest Christmas card in the mail today from our friend Carol Usher of Wooliedales. This card was designed by Ann Curran. If you've never been to her website please treat yourself and have a look! She is a fabulous and very talented artist! The front of the card is an Airedale sitting and looking absolutely adorable and this is the back of the card~

We thought that it was so cute that we just had to share!

Our thanks to everyone who has been sending us both snail mail and ecards! We're racking them up and we're making poor mom and dad look friend-less!

So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch
