I Have Been Remiss - Part II: Winnings!

Okay, I know it's wordless Wednesday, so I'll try to not be too wordy and mainly show pics of what we won, but I have to give shout-outs where they are (over)due!

First off, we won several books!
"I don't always read, but when I do, it better involve a dog." ~ Rita

From Sugar the Golden Retriever, we won Pukka's Promise, by Ted Kerasote, the author of the very popular Merle's Door. The hubs read Merle's Door but I haven't gotten to it yet. I'm looking forward to Pukka since it is sub-titled "The Quest for Longer-Lived Dogs."
Rita thinks every package that arrives is for her!
From my dear friend and fellow author, Peggy Frezon over at Peggy's Pet Place, we won Elsa Watson's The Love Dog. Very excited about this, since I enjoyed Elsa's Dog Days so much. (Peggy just lost her beautiful Brooks, so please send a thought her way.)

And my fellow author Martha Reynolds had a poll to pick winners on Oscar night (yes - I know that was ages ago. I said I've been remiss!) and I won with 4 out of 6 correct picks! I won an Amazon giftcard, which I used to buy her e-book, Chocolate for Breakfast, and a print copy of Chewed, pictured above. Chewed is a fun photography book of, as the name implies, chewed dog toys, with a few short stories and poems from various famous contributors (i.e. Isaac Mizrahi and William Wegman).

Rita was much more excited about the thing we won for her - Jones Natural Chews' Windee Rings from Flea and her fabulous Dog Treat Web blog.
"Give them to me now, Momma."

"Seriously, enough with the photos."
Rita LOVED them. Because what dog doesn't want to eat a little beef trachea?


Happy Not-so-wordless Wednesday!


  1. Wow you sure have been lucky with your winnings :)

  2. You and Rita are so very lucky!

  3. You and Rita are both lucky girls! :-)

  4. Wow, treats for everyone. It's a win win.

  5. You've had a lot of luck lately! You should have been playing the lottery ;-) I just finished The Love Dog! It's a cute story. It was the book I was reading when yours arrived.

  6. Well done on your wins. Love your glasses. Have a wonderful wordless Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Woof! Woof! You got it ... that's great. Happy Reading! Happy BlogPAWs NOT Wordless Wednesday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  8. You're one lucky pup! Congratulations!

  9. We got a rock! (As Charlie Brown used to say). Lucky you.

  10. Wow, talk about winning a lot! The 'Chewed' book picturing the dog toys sounds entertaining. I've sure had my share of those around the house throughout the years! :)

  11. Whoo Hoo...you have been scoring big time!!! Rita looks pretty darn happy too...although I'm still laughing about the Tequila bottle pix :)

  12. What dog doesn't want to eat a little beef trachea. Truer words ... you know, they also sell the entire trachea, just called the Windee. Goes nicely with the Lamb Lung Puffs. Really.

    1. Mmmm. Trachea with a side of Lamb Lung Puffs. That would be Rita's answer for the "what would your last meal be?"

    2. LOL! Yes. Washed down with a glass of toilet water.

  13. WOW!! that's a lot of winnings! Lucky pup.

  14. Wowzer - send some of your lucky streak over here - I've not won anything in ages! :)

    Enjoy your prizes!

    Your pal Snoopy :)
