The Winners of the Christmas Stocking GiveAway

Mom has a blast making these stockings and we love giveaways so this works for us!
So now to reveal the numbers on the flip side of these pieces of paper!
We're not sure you can read them!
Geez, Mitch, I thought I told you to go over them with black crayon so they'd be more visible!
The numbers are one, six, twelve and twenty-one!
And the winners are:

#1 goes to Faya and Dyos
#6 goes to Mango and Dexter
#12 goes to Reilly
and #21 goes to Sue and her Portuguese Water dogs
and there's one more! Mom has finished one more stocking since Miss Autumn posted and we think that seeing as Deetz commented twice, the fifth stocking should go to him! So you win too, Deetz!

We wish we had stockings for everyone because we love each and every one of you! We'll keep mom knitting! *wink wink*

Could the winners please email mom their addresses and we'll get the Christmas stockings in the mail to you asap! Our email in on our sidebar. Thanks, guys!

Our pals Jake and Fergi have asked us to help spread this message
as quickly and as far as we can.

So as many dogs and cats and families
as possible can read it prior to 5:00 PM, Saturday, 14 Nov 09, Iowa Time
(11:00 PM, 14 Nov 09 GMT)
Just please help us get the message out.

As you may know
Miss Snickers is struggling
Along with her family.

(The best place to keep up with updates
is her
Gussie’s blog.)
Last night looked as if it might have been her last.
This morning she rebounded with improved symptoms.
She is far from out of the woods
But she and her family
Including her gentle and loving brother Butchy
Have been granted another day.
We can’t help but believe
that part of the improvement is because of
The support and love that have surrounded her
From all around the world
Thanks to the linked paws
Of her blogging friends.
The Power of the Paw
We are asking everyone to set your alarms
And at exactly 11:00 PM GMT on Saturday 14 Nov 09
Go to this link to find what time that is for you)
5:00 PM Saturday evening in Iowa
as Snickers' family sits down to eat
Turn toward them (in the central USA)
And join together in a silent minute
Of prayer, meditation, contemplation, reflection
Whatever feels right to you.
Followed by whatever means of communication
You choose.
To wish and send
Miss Snickers and her family
whatever is in your hearts
That will help them feel the Love and Support
They need right now.
Personally, we’ll be praying for a Miracle.
Blow a Kiss
and send your Love and Prayers and Best Wishes
Miss Snickers and her Family
and they will feel their arrival
in the breeze.
We believe it will help.
And we'll do anything in our power right now
To help.


So this afternoon while dad is picking up our weekly pizza on his way home from swimming, we will be pausing for Snickers and AireZenning as hard as we can for the miracle that she needs to beat this nasty cancer!
We believe in the power of the paw!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch
